The unabridged, digital audiobook edition of Roald Dahl’s Over to You, a collection of 10 terrifying tales of life as a wartime fighter pilot, from the master of the short story.
During the Second World War, Roald Dahl served in the RAF and even suffered horrific injuries in an air crash in the Libyan desert. Drawing on his own experiences as a fighter pilot, Dahl crafted these 10 spine-tingling stories: of air battles in the sky; of the nightmare of being shot down; of the infectious madness of conflict; and of the nervy jollity of the Mess and Ops room.
Dahl brilliantly conveys the bizarre reality of a wartime pilot’s daily existence, where death is a constant companion and life is lived from one heartbeat to the next. The stories are "Death of an Old Man", read by Julian Rhind-Tutt; "An African Story", read by Cillian Murphy; "A Piece of Cake", read by Julian Rhind-Tutt; "Madame Rosette", read by Julian Rhind-Tutt; "Katina", read by Cillian Murphy; "Yesterday Was Beautiful", read by Juliet Stevenson; "They Shall Not Grow Old", read by Cillian Murphy; "Beware of the Dog", read by Cillian Murphy; "Only This", read by Sophie Okonedo; and "Someone Like You", read by Julian Rhind-Tutt.
