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!

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.

Great Story for all ages!

On a long road trip our family were all engaged in the life of Danny, the relationship with his dad, the many characters we met along the way and how he was truly the Champion of the World. Such a well told story, clearly communicated, building each character and keeping the listener engrossed in the adventure. Would recommend for all the family and primary school age kids.
