Gangsta Granny – David Walliams


This was the first of David Walliams’ books that I read and it is this one that made me want to read some more and see what his writing was like.

I think, from the Walliams books that I have read, this is the only one that could have made me want to read the rest and none of the others have lived up to it as of yet.


This story is one that I think most people would be able to relate to, the idea that your grandparent is the most boring person on the face of the Earth when you have to go and stay with them for any amount of time but they would actually be the ones to do anything for you, just to make sure that you were happy and thought them as amazing as they actually are.


Without spoiling the ending, it was the first book in a long, LONG time that made me cry while I was reading it but the ending of this story was definitely one that inspired sadness which was part of the reason that I thought this book was such a perfect one to decide to start with so that I then moved on to experience his others. None of the other stories provided me with any emotion, other than laughter, while I felt that Gangsta Granny was a more well-rounded book.
