Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
I only had a narrow choice for this one: it was either the Roald Dahl classic, or a work of non-fiction, which kind of flew against the concept of "novel"!
The early 70s movie version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is fun, the remake is, uh, weird (Tim Burton, need I say more?), but the original novel, and its sequel, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, are much better than either. Don't grow up without them.
