blast from the past

very well read, a great story. The only downfall is some of the English terms used in the book are irrelevant today so my children asked me what they were. Otherwise spend many happy car journeys listening to the story with my children, and discussing how I grew up in the English countryside as a boy....

Glad Venturing On It

I am glad venturing on this particular book, it's not often I venture on children's book, it's a surprise find it interesting and engaging.

I would give my thumbs for the author and the narrator as well. The narrator performed so well and find it amazing that he could actually exploring every character in this book, with their own accent. So Lovely!!!

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.

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!

Amazing family listening

Can’t recommend this enough. Peter Serafinowicz’s narration is perfect for this beautiful story. I was instantly transported back to when I read the book as a child but this time brought my young song along to share in the magic. We have revisited Danny, his Dad and that little caravan many times now and we adored each visit as if it were to treasured family friends.

It was awesome

I really like how the chapters names told you what was going to happen but didn’t give to much away.

Also all together the plot was great

I loved it

Get this audiobook for sure

I remember it for primary school

good book i enjoyed it, it was easy to get though, the narrator did an excellent job. my only real issue is my personal morals have evolved since the last time I was read it. below is my feelings on the matter (spoilers ahead be warned)
I remember this book being read to me when I was in primary school and I found the concept of pheasant poaching fascinating back then. so to listen to it as an adult I realize Danny and his Dad are just a couple of thieves with good intentions who think its ok and noble to steal from someone they dislike who happens to have been successful in his business of manufacturing beer. Victor Hazel maybe rich but that doesn't make ok to steal from him. it was fun to hear this book again though.
