In my opinion, this is a great book because there's lots of excitement in it, especially in the part with Grandpa Joe where "He threw up his arms and yelled ‘Yippeeeeeeee!'" I love how all the characters have different personalities that make them stand out, like Violet Beauregarde's ferociousness and August Gloop's carefree attitude. I would personally recommend it to other people because it's enjoyable for all age groups as it's not too juvenile or too complicated.

My son wrote this review as he was the one that read and enjoyed this book, I've read this book myself but it was many a moons ago...
A really good book and is the first book of the 'Charlie and The...' series. And is the most popular Roald Dahl book to this date, well I think so anyway. It's about a boy called 'Charlie' that can't afford to buy chocolate bars but luckily finds some money and buys some and shares the chocolate with his family. There's a few golden tickets available hidden in chocolate bars and his grandpa gives him his savings to buy one more bar of chocolate hoping to find the golden ticket which de does.
He takes a tour around the secret chocolate factory with his grandpa with a group of misbehaved children. Eventually Charlie is the only one left at the end and ignore the offer to him by Mr Wonkas employee which led Mr Wonka to give him the factory and Charlies whole family move in living happily ever after.
The characters are:
Mr and Mrs Bucket;
Mr Willy Wonka;
The Oompa Loompas;
Mr and Mrs Gloop and Augustus Gloop;
Mr and Mrs Teavee and Mike Teavee;
Mr and Mrs Beauregarde and Violet Beauregarde
Mr and Mrs Salt and Veruca Salt
Overall very well-done book with a very good storyline, I just wish there was a competition so that I could win a chocolate factory, I wouldn't mind any factory just so long as it makes chocolate.
