My Uncle Oswald was a pretty amusing read. It didn’t feel like anything particularly special, but it was fun to read a ridiculous story featuring ridiculous characters in ridiculous situations. And it was a quick read, making it an excellent palate cleanser.
This is also the book where Dahl used the term “Snozberries” for the first time, a word that would re-appear in Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. Just learning the origin of the term was enough to justify reading the story.
If you like quick humor, this is a great book to pick up for a bit.
