What bothers me the most about this book isn't even the sexism, although there is plenty of it to go around. By the truckload. What bothers me is the fact that the characters are so blatantly being raped by the means of a drug rape. Dahl makes light of this issue, tries to make us laugh at it, and probably succeeds. Initially, I was very amused by him. But over the course of the first hundred pages, I started to get a little angry, and then I got mad.

What, you think that just because you're tal What bothers me the most about this book isn't even the sexism, although there is plenty of it to go around. What, you think that just because you're talking of great MEN they cannot be raped? Ugh disgusting. If you can overlook these issues, this book is hilarious, but c'mon, do you really want to overlook these issues? I'm not amused.

I am not. I'm sad because Dahl was one of my favourite authors ever, and I don't know how to look beyond this now. View all 10 comments. This is what happens when you read the books politically! And not just enjoy them, while they are good. Instead of enjoying good or great literature! Jun 02, PM. Mar 10, David rated it did not like it Shelves: read-in , hideously-vile-protagonists , disappointing. Roald Dahl might like us to dismiss the rank male chauvinism, tired stereotypes, and hackneyed writing in this book, on the grounds that his "Uncle Oswald" is a charming old rogue.

But there's nothing charming about the implied contempt for women that oozes through the lazy prose of Oswald's creaky tale. There may be men still alive who share his sexist view of the world, but I doubt they read books. Dahl has written some genuinely funny stories published in Great Britain under the titles "Kiss Roald Dahl might like us to dismiss the rank male chauvinism, tired stereotypes, and hackneyed writing in this book, on the grounds that his "Uncle Oswald" is a charming old rogue.

Dahl has written some genuinely funny stories published in Great Britain under the titles "Kiss Kiss" and "Switch Bitch"; I haven't seen these titles in the U. Nothing in this book matches the wit and talent evident in those earlier stories. This book is a dud. View all 7 comments.

Okay, there is just no defending this book. It's unbelievably offensive and problematic in basically every possible way you could imagine. And some you probably can't. Or shouldn't. But it's also I made poor Kat read this because she's a fan of Roald Dahl's children's stories. She's recovering fine. Honestly, I read it first when I was about eighteen. And, coming back to it, I wasn't quite prepared for the sheer scope and scale of its I did, however, laugh myself to tears.

Uh, the book is an excerpt from the diaries of the eponymous Uncle Oswald "the connoisseur, the bon vivant, the collector of spiders, scorpions and walking-sticks, the lover of opera, the expert on Chinese porcelain, the seducer of women, and without much doubt the greatest fornicator of all time.

His companions in this undertaking are a Cambridge chemist, AR Worsley, who specialises in artificial insemination and the preservation of sperm, and Yasmin Howcomely, a girl "absolutely soaked in sex" who So to speak. What follows in a whistle-stop-shag-tour through the crowned heads and famous names of the early 20th century. Which is about as funny and awful as you can imagine.

And kind of pretty undeniably rapey. It's filthy and coy, involves a scene of an Cambridge chemist attempting to extract semen from a bull, and Proust chasing Yasmin round a table while she's dressed as a boy with a strategically placed banana. There are There's love in unexpected places. Yasmin is sort of amazing with her gung-ho, unflappable sex-positivity. Uncle Oswald gets much everything he deserves.

And there are unexpected moments of poignancy about war and life and sex and pleasure: Listening to [my father] during those early years, I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life.

He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good, either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be. Feb 20, Caitlyn rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. My grandmother has this friend, a woman I have known as my "auntie" since I was very young.

The woman always told me sweet stories when I was a child, ones suitable for a child. Last year at Christmas she got a little bit tipsy on wine and began to tell sexual jokes- which, coming from an 80 year old woman, was a bit unsettling. And yet hilariously comfortable.

This book is sort of the parallel to that story- the Roald Dahl we knew as children writing a story entirely revolving around sex.
