" funny and provocative. great book for walking a slow dog. " said.

" I' m not sure what to think about Mr Dahl. He' s a mystery to me. Mystery is good - I think. " said.

" The perfect book for the Roald Dahl fan, but best for sipping rather than gulping. " said.

" I have loved Roald Dahl since childhood (Matilda! The Witches!) and I love introducing his short adult fiction to my students. "Lamb to the Slaughter" and "The Landlady" are some of my favorites for irony. " said.

" Some stories I really liked, some I barely cared for. In the end the thing I found a little tireseome was that every story ended with some character getting their comeuppance. These stories would be excellent aloud. " said.

" Hooray! Hooray for the whole old damn old world! I keep wreaking havoc and then having to suffer for it but OH MAN. There's stuff out there I can't even get close to with my magical fuck-up powers and ROALD DAHL IS OBV ONE OF THEM. Good on you, sir. You are making everything better all the time. " said.

" Though many probably associate Dahl with his children's books (James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), these very adult, often dark, short stories are a true delight. It's no wonder that Hitchock used "A Dip in the Pool" for a "Hitchcock Presents" episode. Each story comes with an O'Henry-esque punch to it at the end that left me chuckling and/or surprised. I find these stories fun to read aloud during roadtrips - a refreshing break from music. " said.

" Adult stories by Roald Dahl... as opposed to his kids stories that I might enjoy more as an adult than I did then. This is a great collection. Ashley, a friend of mine used to read these aloud when we were camping in Colorado. I have an amusing memory of a group of adults sitting around a fire listening to one. She said she was tired and could not finish the one she was on. And there was revolt- "No you have to!!!" -like a bunch of kids. heh heh. A must have. " said.
