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!
"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.
Listened with my son at his bedtime and we loved it - a heart-warming story.
love the way he does different voices! Quite outstanding! Made the road trip fun and short and fabulous.
"Excellent for all ages."

A great tale that kept everyone in the car enthralled for a very long journey. Recommended for all ages.
"As a child and now a grown up- it's perfect."
This book introduced me to the idea of class and social justice when I was wee, as an adult it taught me how to be a parent.
Peter's narration is beautiful.

"Sparky as ever."
Inspirational ... As 'Sparky' as ever. My son wants every day with Dad to be sparky, as per the story end note.
"great book for young and old "
I read this as a youngster many moons ago and remembered how much I enjoyed it. Bought it for our grandson to listen to and he was enthralled like I had been. Even as a grown up its still not a bad listen. Now the BFG is making a comeback it might be this book will become more popular again, oh you didn't know? This is where the BFG makes his first appearance in a way.
