I saw the movie a few times and absolutely love it, so I decided to pick up the book for a light read.
The story is about Matilda, a little girl who is gifted with intelligence way beyond her years. At the age of 5 Matilda could master complex multiplications, read all the children's fiction in her local library and even works from authors such as Dickens. Only problem she has is her parents do not embrace her unique talents, in fact they are not even aware of it.
The beginning of the book, or the first half, had me in absolute stitches! I loved this book! The description of the scenes are hilarious, I imagine a child sitting and chuckling along happily to this book.
