內容簡介



Going Solo is the autobiographical sequel of Boy, which is written by the world-famous author Roald Dahl. It is about his life as a worker with the Shell Company and an RAF fighter pilot. He has had an adventurous life and I am sure you would envy him once you have read it. It is a book that your grandfather and father would have read with infinite enthusiasm. I would suggest you take a seat next to the toilet door in case you have the urge to run in after you have laughed your head off turning pages of this book.

The book starts off when Roald Dahl is sailing on the S.S Mantola to Africa, the onset of his life as a Shell worker. On the way he meets many extraordinary people and sees new feats. He befriends the dotty major and his wife on the ship and sees a lion carrying his host's cook's wife away in his mouth. He sees the snake man in action as he silently creeps into a house to catch the fatal green mamba. A crash in the desert hurts his head and brings out many problems in his flying days in Greece. Of course, you would get scared and you would wet your pants in the second half if you were not ready for the stunts of the RAF daredevils.

Roald Dahl has certainly brought out his past in a spectacular way for children like us to enjoy the danger of fifteen Hurricanes in the middle of thousands of Messerschmitts. This book is a perfect bedtime story and also an inspirational book about the will to survive even when it may seem hopeless. It brings the need to end all the nightmares about ghosts in castles and all other fantasies as you enter the world and time of World War II when you did not know the timing of bombings and one wrong step would prove fatal. Climb into your imaginary hurricane and get ready to fly high into the air with Roald Dahl.
