    Overall

    YOU REALLY DO GET THE FEELING THAT WHEN WATSON RECOUNTS HIS EXPERIENCES, . HE CONVEY'S, EVERY QUIRK OF CHARACTER, EVERY NUANCE OF ATMOSPHERE. WHAT A PLEASURE TO HEAR THAT AMAZINGLY VERSATILE VOICE OF DAVID IAN DAVIES. WHO HAS RECORDED MANY ENTERTAINING HOURS OF ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE'S WORK. HIS PHRASING IS IMPECCABLE, HIS CHARACTERISATION SUPERB.

    Tiny and innocent, Matilda is the child of Harry and Zinnia Wormwood, who have no respect for their daughter. Having just entered her first year of school, Matilda makes friends in Miss Honey's class and quickly amazes her teacher with reading and math skills she has not yet been formally taught. Her intelligence amazes Miss Honey. Enter Headmistress Miss Trunchbull, who despises and mistreats the school's children with torture and violence that no one has the courage to challenge.

    Matthew says: "Fantastic story, alas the telling of it!"

    Story

    The narration is wondrous and the narrator seems to be someone who understands the peculiarities of the story's locale. He is wonderful! I read this story to my granddaughter about two years ago and it bothered her at first. But when Matilda started getting even with her awful parents, Tara latched on to the idea and has even bought the audiobook with her allowance - yes we still do that here. She says she will pass this on to her own children when she has a family of her own.

    The Man From The South is the story of a bet between an Englishman and a psycho over whether the Englishman's lighter will light ten times in a row successfully. The stakes are the Englishman's little finger of his right hand vs the psycho's green Cadillac. The story proceeds from here with a completely unexpected ending.

    The Man from the South - Roald Dahl
    Mr. Dahl would certainly approve of this telling. I know the author's work from over the years and the actor makes this one completely believable. When you watch the Hitchcock film "Psycho" you have some idea how you might be drawn into Roald Dahl's stories. The writer has a rare gift for the grotesque and this is one of his best in that respect
