By Roald Dahl
I am reading a book called The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and six more. I chose for my book report to write about the story called The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar. It is about a man who is very rich and selfish. He paid to much attention to his clothes and what he looked like. But never did a day’s work in his whole life. All his friends were wealthy and they would travel all over the world. He loved to gamble on everything he can get his hands on.
The main character in this story was Henry Sugar. The thing I liked least about Henry was he was so into himself and never thought about other people. He only cared about how he looked and were he was seen. And the most thing I liked about Henry was, at the ending of the story, Henry came to his senses and realized how important it was to help other people. The problem Henry had to face was, learning how to care and help other people. And not to become so self-centered. The problem was solved at the ending of the book. It was solved by, winning all this money from gambling he realized that money did not make him feel good, it was how he spent the money.
My favorite part of the story was when Henry went out onto his balcony and threw his money to people on the street who needed it more than he did. It showed how kind and generous Henry really could be. And when the cop came into his apartment, it was nice how he told Henry that he could take his money and give it to an orphanage.
If I were the main character I would have done one thing different. The thing I would have done was when I finished reading the interview with Imhart Khan; I would have not practiced yoga for selfish reasons. Henry wanted to practice yoga so he could concentrate and learn how to see through objects such as, cards. The cards when he gambled would bring him very large amounts of money. But he was cheating.
Mary Flannery O’connor wrote two short stories entitled “Good Country People” and “Revelation”. O’conner displays similarities between the characters and the differences in the role they play at the end of their stories. Inside the two short stories are four characters, Joy and Manly Pointer from “Good country people” and Mary Grace and Mrs. Turpin ...
The thing I remember most about the story was when Imhart Khan walked a few blocks without being able to see anything. He was blindfolded by doctors. The doctors even glued his eyelids shut. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend! I would recommend this book to a friend because, it is very interesting and different from any other books I have read. Every page has something different in it. I would definitely read another book by this author. I like the way he writes and holds my attention. It was a different kind of story and I really enjoyed it.
