Publisher's Summary

Superb stories, daring deeds, fantastic adventures!

Going Solo is the action-packed tale of Roald Dahl's exploits as a World War II pilot. Learn all about his encounters with the enemy, his worldwide travels, the life-threatening injuries he sustained in a plane accident, and the rest of his sometimes bizarre, often unnerving, and always colorful adventures. Told with the same irresistible appeal that has made Roald Dahl one of the world's best-loved writers, Going Solo brings you directly into the action and into the mind of this fascinating man.

    Story
    "Our whole families favorite author; an amazing writer and life."

    I purchased this story for my 10 year old son, and of course he along with my older two boys have all enjoyed Roald Dahl books over the years. I decided to put this on for my husband and I because we have been trapped in our kitchen every weekend working on a remodel. This story was a perfect distraction while tediously sanding and painting away each day. This story made us look forward to going to work in the kitchen just to hear what was going to happen next.
    The story is exciting, amazing, sad, happy and thrilling. The reader is exceptional we enjoyed every moment and didn't want it to end.

    Story
    "Live of a master, read beautifully"

    Anyone who loves Roald Dahl's books will, I think, be fascinated by the way he tells some of the story's of his early adulthood. He lived a very interesting life but, in the way of the best story tellers, he also observed and was interested the life of the people around him and he was consequently able to make you feel as though you were there, meeting these people with him.

    The narrator is fabulous, one of the best I've ever heard. He sounds exactly as I would have imagined Dahl himself would sound, with a cadence and tone perfect for Dahl's witty and insightful thoughts on life.

    Story
    "Delightful"

    Such a delightfully told tale. It amuses from the very beginning of his journey to Africa to the end of his flying with the RAF. A very enjoyable read.
