    One Reply to “Going Solo”

    1. Whew! This man did more within a year than I have in my life. And the giraffes would incline their heads very slightly and stare down at me with languorous demure expressions, but they never ran away. I found it exhilarating to be able to walk freely among such huge graceful wild creatures and talk to them as I wished.This is the second half of Dahl's autobiography. What a wild life! Right after high school, Roald packed up his belongings, got a job for the Shell company and set off for Africa. [...]

    3. 2). I'm giving this book 5 stars without having actually read it, but ya know what it's my review so I can do whatever I want (don't try and stop me)!It's getting 5 stars because my 2nd grade son LOVES, LOVES, LOVES it!!! The other night he got sent to bed with no read aloud (the little bastard lied to me about brushing his teeth, I know I'm such a hard ass) but he didn't even care!!! He just said "OK", grabbed his this book and happily trotted off to bed.Then last night I had to go into his roo [...]

    4. “A life is made up of a great number of small incidents and a small number of great ones.” So opens the second and 'adult-based' portion of Roald Dahl's autobiography. He makes perfectly clear that this is not such a book, for autobiographies are full of useless and boring information. Dahl seeks to offer the reader some of the key memories he had during his early adult life, particularly serving in the Second World War. Accepting a job with the Shell Company, Dahl is soon shipped to the Afr [...]

    5. First I read 'Boy' and then I read 'Going Solo'. This book is perfect. Roald Dahl tells the grown-up part of his life in such a way that made me crave more for his adventures in the Royal Air Force. It's like sitting in a cafe, listening to your date who's telling you amusing stories of his life. He's a hundred years older than you are, yet you still find him attractive!

    6. bbc/programmes/b07hwwjvDescription: To celebrate the centenary year of his birth, a full dramatization of Roald Dahl's gripping autobiographical overseas adventure.Beginning aboard the SS Mantola, Dahl sets sail for Africa at the tender age of 22. He experiences the remnants of colonial British life, filled with eccentric characters, and is thrown into a world as bizarre and surprising as any you will find in his fiction."Life is made up of a great number of small incidents and a small number of [...]

    7. Roald Dahl is not just a great writer - he's a wonderful human being, and that's what makes him so damn good at writing too.He's observant and self-aware, matter-of-fact but wondering, curious and amazed at life, brave and charming in the way he writes and the things he's done, concise and generous and really fucking tall.I'm pretty much in love with his soul.

    8. A wonderful, harrowing and yet somehow light-hearted account of Dahl's time during the Second World War as a RAF pilot. Most fascinating, which one finds with the war poets, is, though it is obviously horrid and despicable, they all seem to bloody love war. Not nice when you nearly die, but jolly good fun otherwise. Camaraderie has a lot to do with it, but I think it's also just what you need to do when faced with such senseless, mindless stupidity.Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | Shop | [...]

    9. 'Going Solo' is the second instalment of Dahl's autobiography. Whilst interesting, informative and entertaining this may be - it isn't anything like as compelling as the first book covering Dahl's earlier years - 'Boy'. Still definitely worth reading - for all fans of Dahl and anyone with an interest in his pre-literary life.

    10. This is the second autobiography of Roald Dahl's life. The first book was Boy: Tales of Childhood. I suggest reading them in order, but it wouldn't be the worst thing ever if you didn't! Here is my review on the first book: /review/showThis book starts at the age of 18 (and the first book goes up to the age 18). I really enjoyed this book! BUT, it only focused on him fighting in the war. I was hoping it would cover more than that. The war only lasted for a couple of years He did get badly hurt a [...]

    11. Um relato emocionante da vida do autor, desde dos seus tempos em África enfrentando cobras e leões até ao se tornar piloto da RAF combatendo contra os alemães.Ao longo do livro aparece alguma da sua correspondência com a sua mãe e imagens que nos ajudam a nos contextualizar.Foi uma leitura muito agradável !

    12. 3.5 stars. First off, I am once again shocked that this is considered juvenile fiction. I could see this being for the older range of juvenile fiction (15-18), but I would NOT give this to my little siblings (ages 12-14). There was quite a bit of language, which made me uncomfortable. Yeah, I get it; it's real life, but nonetheless. Anyway, besides that, I really enjoyed this book! It took me 5 or so chapters to really be interested in it, but after that I was hooked. Dahl's slightly humerous an [...]

    13. Qué vidas tan pobres que vivimos en estos tiempos modernos.Amo leer sobre Dahl, podría hacerlo por siempre.

    15. I liked this better than I thought I would, but I still think he was better at children's books.

    16. Following on from Boy, Going Solo was another tremendously important book to me as a child. Where I could relate to his boyhood tales in some way, the next part of his life was a complete window to another world. Read then it was extraordinary and magical; read now I appreciate it on different levels entirely.Dahl mentions how lucky he felt to have witnessed the later days of colonial Britain and the people that made the empire. All negative issues relating to Colonialism aside (I'm not going to [...]

    17. The book Going Solo by Roald Dahl was a real experience of what happened to him during World War II. Before WWII he went to Africa to work for the Shell Oil Company. During WWII he became a pilot in England. Roald Dahl wrote 48 books in his life. This book is interesting and I would recommend it. The strength of this book was its excitement. Dahl seemed crazy he talked to animals. One time he talks to the giraffes, “Hello, giraffes! Hello! Hello! Hello! How are you today?” (Going Solo p79). [...]

    18. This is probably the most exiting autobiography I've ever read. I feel as if I'm friends now with the author eventhough there's a 73 year gap between us. The book gives you a good glimpse of how it was like to live in the British Empire or The many many countries occupied by Britain, I should say. out of the many odd events and characters Roald had seen, the German Jewish/Zionest setteler near Haifa was by far, the creepest, most twisted and disturbing in the intire book.

    19. A remarkable account of a remarkable portion of a remarkable life. Rereading this as an adult, I left with a much greater appreciation for my late grandfather's WW2 air force service and the ghastly "waste of life" he, too, was lucky enough to survive.

    21. In English class, we read the autobiography Going Solo by Roald Dahl. The book is all about his adventures in Africa while working for the Shell Oil Company, and while flying for the Royal Air Force in World War Two. The book also contains some of Dahl’s encounters with animals. He wrote it to tell the reader what it was like to live and explore in the African Savanna. This book had some strong themes. The language can take a while to decipher, and can be quite annoying at times. At other time [...]

    22. I wish I could say I have been all over the world, have crashed landed a plane, or have shot-down German aces, which is why I really admire Roald Dahl. Dahl leaves England at age twenty one to work for the Shell oil company in Africa. Dahl worked in Africa until the outbreak of World War II, when he enlisted in the RAF and learned to fly warplanes. After becoming a pilot officer, Dahl fought in Greece as it was overtaken by the Germans. Dahl’s book “Going Solo” tells all about his adventur [...]

    23. The book Going Solo is full of exciting, breathtaking, suspenseful, and defiantly worth reading. This book is about a young mans life and all of his adventures. The one thing that I really like about this book is that the fun never stops. First they talk about his adventures traveling with the Shell Oil company, and how he went to Africa and ran into many obstacles on his way. The second half of this book gets even better. Roald Dahl enter the Air force and encounters many different situations o [...]

    24. heh. recommended to me by Miriam, who noticed that it wasn't on my Flying shelf. That's because I read it long before I set up my account! Dahl's account of the Battle of Athens is one of my touchstones - the desperation and exhaustion of the RAF pilots, their relative cluelessness about what's going on everywhere else, the hands that shake too much to hold a cigarette when you're back on the ground - it's incredibly vivid and has influenced my own writing. The rest of the book is jaw-dropping [...]

    25. Dang, this guy had a crazy life! I really enjoyed the stories of his time in Africa, although the ones about snakes kind of freaked me out at times. It was interesting to get a snapshot of late British colonialism in Africa as well - it's easy for me to forget that it wasn't that long ago that Europe was sticking its fingers everywhere on that continent and elsewhere. Dahl's adventures in World War II, especially in Greece, were seriously intense, with numerous close shaves and narrow escapes. I [...]

    26. When I was a teenager this felt like an epic read. Now all grown up(some might disagree)it doesn't feel as long as I thought it was but it doesnt change how great it is to read Dahls representation of the world around. His way with words and what he picks up on and presents to the reader lead to such an interesting and fun read. All in all the book only represents a small portion of his fascinating life but it draws you in.His aerial battle scenes are so well written, never glamourising but stil [...]

    27. I liked it, but didn't love it as much as Boy. Going Solo is from when he was 22 and further on. It basically tells his story from when he was working for Shell and then fought against the Germans. Mostly it was about fighting against the Germans and is one of the reasons why I didn't like it as much. I think it mostly had to to do with the fact that he described the planes etc. too much and the events as well, so the story felt flat to me. Maybe I would have liked it more if he described more f [...]

    28. I don't give many books a 3 star rating but at least it is a 'I liked it' rating. I think this is a good book for a young chapter book reader who is into war. It captures Ronald Dahl's life as a fighter pilot and this side of it was interesting. Other than the fact that it as about Ronald Dahl it tended to become repeatitive - for me. My daughter found the same but I think my son will love it. So mixed feeling about this one.

    29. A lovely tale of real-life adventures of Roald Dahl during his time in the RAF. It is full of daring adventures and unexpected turns. It made me want to fly a jet and shoot down the enemy, but I must say this book has also made me empathetic towards soldiers who fight in war for their nations.What a lovely book to read!

    30. 1 JUL 2016 - recommendation through Bettie. Many thanks. With a cover such as this one, I just know this will be a fun read.
