I really looked forward to returning to this book every time I got back in the car, and that's always a good sign. Dahl's was an interesting life and he's captured very well here. If anything, the book could have done with being cut down a bit, on more than one occasion I found myself muttering that the author should just get on with it - you sense he didn't want to waste all his research so some things are documented in exhaustive detail.
Conversely, I found it a bit thin when it came to discussing the merits or otherwise of the books themselves, and Dahl's "Tales of the Unexpected" TV series gets just a single mention, I think. But if you like Dahl, or writing, or simply fancy getting to know more about one of the more interesting 20th century lives, this is a good choice.

Fascinating to hear of the life of Roald Dahl, only criticism is the narrators 'faux' American accent was a little irritating at times. Otherwise read well!
