This Blog is Dedicated to our dear friend Karen.
When she left this life she left a hole in our hearts as well as several to be read books.
We, her friends, will read these books for her.
This blog will be a sort of book club for us to post our thoughts and feelings about the stories and feelings we have of Karen while we read.

#250 Matilda by Roald Dahl
I just picked this one up a couple day ago at the library and realized I have never read it. What a great book! I truly enjoyed it. I'm a huge fan of Roald Dahl. I think we share the same sense of humor. One that can be seen as inappropriate at times, probably taken too far many of times (or too soon) and just odd, which I find likable in Roald Dahl's books.
Matilda is a bright young girl that doesn't seem to fit into her family's life. She is different than the rest of them and they, her family, feel she's the odd one when the reader quickly realizes it's the family that has the problem. Matilda excels at school, makes friends, helps a teacher and develops real relationships there. I believe most are familiar with this story and knows how it ends. Matilda is much happier as well as other characters in the story.
Great read. Enjoyable. Glad Karen had this one on her list as I probably would have forgotten about this gem.
