Unexpected ending, typical Roald Dahl

Today at class we were supposed to read a novel by Roald Dahl and I choose ``Landlady.``  
At the beginning I thought I was about to read about a young boy who tries to find a place to live in England, but afterwards I knew this novel is going to be about completely different topic.  This young man was supposed to find a place to live for a couple days, and he ended up with living with an old lady, who was a bit strange. At the beginning she was really nice, but after some time you understood that she was really creepy. This young man had to write in a guestbook, and there he saw to names that were familiar for him. He said the he had heard about these names before and that he was pretty sure that he had heard about them before. The lady said they didn’t leave her and that these boys still live at the third floor. He find that really strange. I saw the TV-version made by Hitchcock and there,  in the end of the episode he tried to  talk to these guys because he saw the old lady was walking up to the third floor, but when he tried to open up the doors, they were locked.  I think he understood that these boys were killed, but I am not sure. I think this novel was really strange and creepy and so the episode but I’m sure some of you liked it.


Have you ever read Land Lady, or have you ever read a book that Roald Dahl has written?
I can answer some of your questions if you haven’t read it and you want to find out more about it!

  1. Roald Dahl always has unexpected endings to his stories. You never know what is going to happen. That is why short stories are nice to read! They take place in a short time span!
