I got to read a book entitled, “Charlie and the Chocolate factory” by Road Dahl. I really liked the book.

The story is about a boy named Charlie who lived in a family of seven members. His father was the only person who had a job. He loved eating chocolates. Only once a year, on his birthday, he got to taste a bit of chocolate. Charlie loved chocolate more than anything.

In the town itself, actually within sight of the house in which Charlie lived, there was a BiG CHOCOLATE FACTORY! It was the factory of Mr. Willy Wonka. The factory stopped working due to many reasons, and all the machines also stopped working.

Later, Wonka announced that he had hidden five golden tickets in his chocolate bars and they had been hidden under the wrapping paper of five chocolates. The finders would be given a lifetime supply of chocolates. Everyone started buying chocolates hoping that they would receive the tickets. Slowly, the first two founders of the golden ticket were found. After some days, two more people found them. After that, a miracle happened.

Charlie found fifty pounds and decided to buy chocolate bars for the chance to get the ticket. After that, he unwrapped four of them, and they were ordinary chocolates, and the last was The golden ticket. After that, he quickly went home to his mother and told her he found the ticket. Initially, she thought that Charlie was joking, but after he showed her the ticket, she was shocked to see it.

He also told his grandfather, who also thought he was joking until he showed the last golden ticket. After seeing that, his grandfather started dancing. The next day, they went to the factory.

The book is very interesting and I think everyone should read it.
