Lovely narration

Roald Dahl is such a talented storyteller. It is a treat to have him read those stories himself. (Unlike other writers who are not necessarily great readers, Roald Dahl is a talented performer as well as a talented writer.) Of course, those are abbreviated versions of the stories, but the point is to spend a few hours listening to Roald Dahl himself bring his famous characters to life. (For complete versions of the stories, buy the individual books.)

Abriged versions

It's cool to hear the author himself (especially for the songs), but i believe that these may be abridged versions. For example in James there are no cloud monsters. Still fun.

Willy Wonka!

My kids and I LOVED listening to Charlie and The Chocolate Factory on our roadtrip this summer! It was our first audiobook for the family and a huge hit all around! #Audible1

horrible to listen to

the narrators deep voice drones on and the accent is hard to listen to! Loved these stories when I read them myself and enjoyed the movie adaptations but can't handle listening to the narrators voice!

Great stories

The Roald Dahl stories are great! I loved them growing up so was excited to hear them narrated by the author himself. Unfortunately I was disappointed by the narration, it was lacklustre and monotonous. But the stories are fantastic! #Audible1

Wish the stories were separated into tracks....

I love Roald Dahl, he is an excellent storyteller! I am frustrated by the collection on this site because it is just one long continuous 3 hour track. If my kids ask me for one story, it is very hard to find the beginning of one or the end of another. Frustrating.

This Audiobook Needs Tracks!

Where does The Roald Dahl Audio Collection rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Love Roald Dahl and the performance is done by the author himself. However, this recording is terrible because there are no tracks to split up the stories. This is one long audio track.

ABRIDGED without chapters to separate each book.

What would have made The Roald Dahl Audio Collection better?

Having the books separated by chapters so that you can access each story separately instead of having to scroll through to find the start and sop times for each book. Major pain.

Any additional comments?

I was tricked into purchasing this as mu first ever audio book. I didn't know or understand that it was not the full book for each of the books. Now that I know what to look for in the future I will be more careful.
Also, the books are NOT even separated by chapters so you have to scroll through the entire file to find each book.
Not a good first experience.

Roald Dahl reads Roald Dahl.

My four-year-old likes it.
I like it.
The timbre of Dahl's voice is exquisite.
His narrational skills are every bit the equal of his stories.
His stories belong to childhood.
Buy this audio book.

Awesome Collection of Stories

Would you consider the audio edition of The Roald Dahl Audio Collection to be better than the print version?

People can decide for themselves if they prefer to listen to a book or read it themselves. This collection of stories is read by Mr. Dahl himself which is pretty cool..

What did you like best about this story?

All of the stories are great. Each "Chapter" is its own story, so you can choose between the longer stories which are well over an hour, and the shorter ones which are around 20 minutes..

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The Stories are all classics - read by the Author himself.

Only improvement would be unabridged

Great stories, well performed. Would prefer unabridged. Hopefully they will revise one day. But very good for abridged!
