Read the whole thing while wincing and trying to convince myself “it was a different time” when it was written. Looked up the year of publication and it wasn’t *that* long ago. We’ve come a long way in thirty years, maybe. ( )

Very disappointed. Only the ending saved it from getting only one star.

Let's even not think about the main point of this book where they use drugs to rape men. Steal their semen so they can sell it. This book is just a boring repetition of the same thing over and over again.

I expected some witty interesting funny story but this was just boring crap. Really boring.

Not recommended ( )

I only recently "discovered" Roald Dahl. Don't get me wrong, I knew of him, it's just that I never thought to read anything he had written. That changed after reading a book of his short stories. I decided to read whatever of his writings I could find. Another book of short stories followed, and then I decided to try a novel, My Uncle Oswald, which is definitely different from Dahl's short stories that I have read so far. BUT, there is a running theme in this novel that I discovered in his short stories. The art of the con! (I know I'm probably very late in that discovery, since I only recently began my immersion into Dahl's writing.)

My Uncle Oswald, which is definitely an adult book, delves into a long con, involving sex and greed. with a twist just at the end. I found it a very enjoyable read! ( )

This is the first of Dahl's adult novels I've ever read, though his children's books are some of my favourites of all time. But I really don't know how to feel about it... It's a children's book with an adult theme - Dahl's wonderful prose, crazy schemes and wily protagonists seen in books like George's Marvellous Medicine or Fantastic Mr Fox are turned on a subject that made me feel very uncomfortable. It is a story about rape, basically. Both the men who are used for their semen and Yasmin who collects it are being raped in different ways, and I didn't enjoy the fact that this was presented so flippantly. I was glad at the outcome, but I didn't feel it was enough. ( )

An unexpected and thoroughly enjoyable offering from a beloved author. Funny and sexy, and ends just when your interest starts to lag. I'm glad I didn't send this to my little sister with the rest of the Roald Dahl books. ( )

I am beginning, once again, to have an urge to salute my Uncle Oswald, I mean, of course, Oswald Hendryks Cornelius deceased, the connoisseur, the bon vivant, the collector of spiders, scorpions and walking-sticks, the lover of opera,the expert on Chinese porcelain, the seducer of women, and without much doubt the greatest fornicator of all time.
