couldn't finish the book due to audio issues

Mr Hodge is a great narrator and the story sounds interesting.

but there is one big problem. the volume ranges from a hushed whisper to loud screaming. it is hard to listen to this at a fixed volume setting.

Good but the narrator is a bit fast while eading

This is a good book but the narrator is telling the story too fast ... he should have told it a little bit slow. He did not count any full stops

abrupt ending

the story is wonderful though it feels so unfinished that I'd rather advise people not to begin listening unless they want to be disappointed in the abrupt ending. the story leaves you suspended with more than a few questions reeling around in your head.

nice sequel

this continuation from Charlie and the chocolate factory is a bit more darker than the first one and was more like an episode of Doctor Who.

Choc Factory 1.2!

Charlie and The Chocolate Factory 1.2, most definitely not 2.0!
Skip past the Outer space part, and it's an ok short story.

Scattered Storyline

There is two stories told one inside the other with no genuine link. One is a space story and the other a desire for youth. Terminology used wiuld be difficult for the young to read.

Not Dahl's best work

The story is very disjointed and even more nonsensical than anything else he's ever done. We listened as a family and the adults didn't like it but the kids (11, 8, 5) thought it was funny. Our 11 year old did think it was a bit silly and didn't make sense.
