"OMG WHAT IS THIS WONDERFUL BREATHTAKING STORY"
I just can't say enough how much I loved the story!!!! How fascinating Roald Dahl's life is and how wonderful he is at narrating his stories!!!!!!! I love it I love it!!!
I loved the expression in the narrators voice and also the story was great and had lots of action in it.
I have no words to describe how exciting, interesting and sometimes touching this story is, so you'll just have to read it yourself and find out. The narration is also excellent - Dan Stevens has a wonderful voice which suits Dahl's autobiography exactly. As an aside, Boy is equally good.
A direct follow on story from Roald Dahl's book 'Boy' and both were fascinating and captivating reading. A captivating story which provides a fascinating perspective on life during WWII adding both humour and feeling to a tremendously difficult period.
Great narration. Exhilarating stories which gave great insight into a time long ago. Wished there was more.
One of the most enjoyable books I've listened too!!
Like his books, every child & adult should hear his story!
No wonder he was such an incredible author!
"An excellent follow on from Boy!"

"amazing story told by an amazing narrator! "

One of the best books I have listened to
"Moving and Entertaining "
Loved it. A touching insight into the life of an RAF pilot with anecdotes that are beautifully written. Honest, critical, funny and tragic.
