The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar / Roald Dahl : 3 of 5
I started this book just before my haul of Christmas gifts, so I had to finish it up before starting my new stuff! This is actually a collection of seven stories, including some non-fiction that was particularly interesting. The best story is the title tale, about a man who learns to see with his eyes closed, and even to see through playing cards - of course, he goes crazy at the casinos, but the years of practice he spent learning this talent changes him, and he ends up funding orphanages all over the world. I really enjoyed the autobiographical journey of how Roald Dahl became a writer, plus his interesting childhood and experiences in different counties and in World War II. This book has less heart-felt magical moments than his other books, but I really enjoyed it and read it rather quickly!
