Now that he's won the chocolate factory, what's next for Charlie?

Last seen flying through the sky in a giant elevator in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Charlie Bucket's back for another adventure. When the giant elevator picks up speed, Charlie, Willy Wonka, and the gang are sent hurtling through space and time.

    "AWESOME narration!"

    The story is phenomenal and the way it is read (the voices, the accents etc.) kept my 5th grade students captivated and glued to the edge of their seats. This is by far THE BEST narration I've heard to date!

    "Storyline Is Terrible "

    The book narrator was amazing and was the main reason I bought the second Charlie and the Chocolate Factory book. I'm sad because the storyline was simply terrible. It didn't make sense and was all over the place. Very disappointed.

    Story
    "Liked it a LOT"

    I really liked this and I would recommend it to all readers and listeners. The only thing I didn't like was that Douglas Hodge tends to punctuate the words a little too much. For example, when willy Wonka says, " my dear lady!" To aunt Josephine, it sounds like he's saying it through gritted teeth and trying hard not to yell. Like this: "MY DEAR LADY!"
    But other than that, this book is worth the money! Buy it!

    Story
    "Excellent performance!"

    My six year old loved listening to this delightfully silly story in the car. The only reason I rated it a 4 overall was the ocassional wild fluctuations in volume. It was in keeping with the story and characters, but I had to adjust the volume a lot in some chapters. President Gillygrass's voice was particularly difficult to listen to, but I think he's supposed to be annoying.
