From Movie To Audio(book)

I had watched the movie Charlie And Chocolate Factory a few years back and I enjoyed it. Then I found another Roald Dahl's work on Audible, I just happily spent my credit on it. Now I downloaded it for my children to introduce them the beauty of audiobook.

I never read the book as a kid, so was deeply engrossed in listening to this. I was as eager as the kids to keep listening to it. Beautiful story!

Wonderful

My son and I listened to this on a long car trip and we were both enthralled! It's DAHL after all, so we had high expectations but it blew us away. The reader puts on all the voices and reads with the right amount of emotion. The 2 1/2 trip felt like 5mins!

A beautiful story, beautifully read. Peter Serafinowicz captures all the joy and excitement of Roald Dahl's story. My children liked the sense of adventure.
