Charlie and the Chocolate Factory | [Roald Dahl]

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last! But only five lucky children will be allowed inside. And the winners are: Augustus Gloop, an enormously fat boy whose hobby is eating; Veruca Salt, a spoiled-rotten brat whose parents are wrapped around her little finger; Violet Beauregarde, a dim-witted gum-chewer with the fastest jaws around; Mike Teavee, a toy pistol-toting gangster-in-training who is obsessed with television; and Charlie Bucket, Our Hero, a boy who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!

Audible Editor Reviews

"Douglas Hodge delivers Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in a briskly melodic canter, and his rendering holds its own against memories of cinema's Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp." (Gregory Maguire, The New York Times Book Review)

    "fanciful fun for five-year-olds"
    Would you listen to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory again? Why?

    We have listened to this book over and over again! The author is very engaging with voices and sound effects able keep the attention of even the youngest audience.

    "Top Shelf Narration. Professional Production"

    Complete professional narration. With sound effects and the many voices of the narrator who is a true professional actor makes all the difference we listen to this book over and over due to the quality of the production.

    "Roald Dahl is a still my favorite"

    "Cool"

    The fact I can get it right now is to get the hang of it and it was the best of the day before I get a follow back on my way home from work to be the first half of the day before I get a follow back on my way home.

    "Amazing"

    The story is great but what made mw give it 5 starts is the narration. Absolutely incredible how well the narrator brings the store to life. His voices and enthusiasm made me smile the entire time.
