قرأت هذا الكتاب في يوم واحد بينما سافرت من Philidelphia إلى Laramie ، Wyoming. لا يمكن وضعها. لقد غير هذا الكتاب الرائد والمؤثر للغاية مجال البيولوجيا التطورية من خلال القول بأن الانتقاء الطبيعي يعمل على الجينات والجينات وحدها - الآثار على الكائنات الحية والأنواع هي منتجات ثانوية لذلك. قبل تأليفها ، كان تطور التطور أكثر اهتمامًا بحجج "خير النوع". بعد هذا الكتاب ، أصبحت الحقول الحديثة لجينات المثلي ، وتسلسل الجينوم ، وعلم النفس التطوري ممكنة. لكل من يرغب في فهم التطور ، يأتي هذا الكتاب في المرتبة الثانية بعد أصل أنواع داروين.
** spoiler alert ** I came across this book many years ago as a child and l can honestly declare that it left me mesmerized. Since then l have become a huge fan of Dahl, l find his work incredibly captivating and hugely entertaining. I was initially drawn towards this book by the title as l absolutely adore chocolate. At a first glance l recall presuming the book must have just been about chocolate. However on closer inspection l soon ascertained that the book was not merely about a boy who adores chocolate. As the story unfolds it becomes apparent that it taps into wider social and moral matters. The book centres on Charlie Bucket who is from a very poor background, however just by chance; he wins an opportunity of a lifetime, the golden ticket. This in turn enables him to fulfil his lifelong dream, of visiting the chocolate factory owned by Willy Wonka. One can only begin to imagine Charlie’s excitement. After all he had spent year in year out, relishing all of the different scents, from the walls of the chocolate factory whenever he walked past. Alongside him there are four other lucky children who win the golden ticket as well. The other children are from notably affluent backgrounds in comparison with Charlie. Dahl depicts them as being spoilt and rather ego centric which is reinforced by their low moral values. On the contrary Charlie proves to be very humble with strong principles. There is a strong sense of moral value in the story which is depicted by Charlie. Moreover, he eventually proves that patience is virtue when his world is eventually opened up to a host of new opportunities after winning the golden ticket. His life is transformed from almost being on the verge of starvation into a new world of wealth and magical fantasy. The other children eventually become conscious of their behaviour at the latter part, as each child becomes a victim of their own selfish desires. On a final note, l would state that the book is undoubtedly enchanting and confirms the scope of Dahl’s imagination. lt is a true magical fantasy with a strong element of mystery as well as lots of added humour. In addition to this, Dahl gives us a good insight of adventure from a child’s perspective. I’m convinced that the book would definitely be a bonus for young children as the language and tone is very playful. A must read for children!
