My Uncle Oswald

Author: Roald Dahl
Reviewer's Age: Grade 12

My Uncle Oswald, a definitive farcical account of a young adult's promiscuity and ingenuity in pecuniary augmentation, is a most humorous and fantastic novel. The readers of Dahl's stories, which are primarily tuned in favor of a more youthful audience, will find this an indispensable work of note; of course, the maturity of the reader must be considerably greater than would be the case for juvenile stories. Accompanied by a slight taste for "tasteless" humor and a disposition towards the fantastic and irreverent, any who would read of Oswald's absurd endeavors and fictitious dialogues would undoubtedly find enjoyment, if not elation, in this hedonistic satire.
