I love Roald Dahl, he is an excellent storyteller! I am frustrated by the collection on this site because it is just one long continuous 3 hour track. If my kids ask me for one story, it is very hard to find the beginning of one or the end of another. Frustrating.
Love Roald Dahl and the performance is done by the author himself. However, this recording is terrible because there are no tracks to split up the stories. This is one long audio track.
My four-year-old likes it.
I like it.
The timbre of Dahl's voice is exquisite.
His narrational skills are every bit the equal of his stories.
His stories belong to childhood.
Buy this audio book.
People can decide for themselves if they prefer to listen to a book or read it themselves. This collection of stories is read by Mr. Dahl himself which is pretty cool..
All of the stories are great. Each "Chapter" is its own story, so you can choose between the longer stories which are well over an hour, and the shorter ones which are around 20 minutes..
The Stories are all classics - read by the Author himself.
Having the books separated by chapters so that you can access each story separately instead of having to scroll through to find the start and sop times for each book. Major pain.
I was tricked into purchasing this as mu first ever audio book. I didn't know or understand that it was not the full book for each of the books. Now that I know what to look for in the future I will be more careful.
Also, the books are NOT even separated by chapters so you have to scroll through the entire file to find each book.
Not a good first experience.
The only thing that could be better is if the books were unabridged. But that is made up for by the reader being Roald Dahl himself! I work with kids and play them these stories all the time.
