Biographie de l'auteur

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant PeachMatildaThe BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

The Penguin reissue of Dahl's own Caedmon readings 19 septembre 2013
Par Yi-Peng - Publié sur
There are precious few audio documents of Roald Dahl's own readings, be it his adult or children's stories. However the American Caedmon label recorded 4 audiobook records of Dahl reading his own children's stories. They recorded abridged versions of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, and unabridged versions of Fantastic Mr Fox, The Enormous Crocodile and The Magic Finger. In addition a British company recorded Dahl's own reading of The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me. For a time Harper Audio (the successor to Caedmon) released the four Dahl Caedmon LPs in one package. However it is good to have them back again in this Penguin audiobook reissue.

Some people might feel upset that Dahl is not dramatic in any way, and some may complain that these recordings of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach are abridged so that each book takes up one LP. However they are excellent recordings and they still manage to sparkle with Dahl's trademark writing and storytelling style.

The recording of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory gives us an excellent reading of the book even in an abridged form. In this recording, Dahl might sound tentative at first because this was the first time he was recording his work. This abridged version covers the salient episodes of the book and paces itself very well. In a way this is good. I have tended to feel uneasy that the original book had a bit of padding, and this abridgement, though brief, is very welcome and paces itself better. Some might not be too keen on Dahl's brisk pace, as the producers were obliged to fit this recording onto one LP. However Dahl is still able to adjust his voice and tone for the various situations and emotions.

Dahl is perhaps more seasoned in the readings of Fantastic Mr Fox, The Enormous Crocodile and The Magic Finger. These books are presented unabridged, so there is less cramming and compression. Dahl's pace in these stories is relaxed, and Dahl captures the right moods for each characters. Dahl perfectly catches the slyness of the Enormous Crocodile himself and is superb when he tells of the strange happenings of the Greggs after the girl punishes them with the magic finger. And in this recorded reading of Fantastic Mr Fox Dahl succeeds in making the three nasty farmers sound horrid and mean, and hell-bent on catching Mr Fox and all the woodland animals.

The least successful reading is James and the Giant Peach. When I say "least successful" I mean that the abridgement leaves out too many important episodes. It is too heavy on the first part of the book in the house of Sponge and Spiker, and it cuts out the middle part of the journey across the Atlantic. We don't hear about the danger with the Cloud Men or James rescuing the Centipede from the ocean. So even though Dahl reads well, it's easy to feel disappointed with the quality of the abridgement.

In spite of its flaws, this is still a superb collection of Dahl's own readings and one of the few available audio documents of him reading his children's books. It is fit to stand alongside existing audiobook recordings, including the new unabridged versions that Penguin Audio has been releasing over these few months.

For non-Americans who are purchasing this set, it's worth noting that these recordings use the American editions of the stories rather than the British edition. So in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory American currency is used in place of British currency and candy bar is used in place of chocolate bar.

Great collection and so good to hear it read by the author. The kids (6 & 8) love it and keeps them engaged on car journeys. So far they haven't got bored of hearing it again and again. Great value entertainment.

Excellent audio CD set 28 avril 2014
Par Home in Hawaii - Publié sur

I loved Roald Dahl books when I was a kid and wanted to start introducing my own kids to them. We spend a lot of time in the car, so this was a great way to do it. I jumped at the chance to buy this set because, not only does it include 5 stories which is a great bargain, but it was read by the author himself! Since I had never heard his voice before, I thought this would be really interesting and make the set more special in a way. I was not disappointed! I love hearing these stories in Dahl's own voice. My children do too. They are 7, 5, and 3 years old. We have listened to the CDs over and over again. I think Dahl does an excellent job with his readings. I don't find it confusing which story is on which CD although they are not labeled. 1--Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, 2--James and the Giant Peach, 3--Fantastic Mr. Fox, 4--The Enormous Crocodile and The Magic Finger. I believe there is about 5 hours of recording between all the CDs. I only wish the entire stories of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach were included instead of the abridged versions. I just can't get enough! Highly recommended!

This Christmas gift was a great hit with my grandson (8 & 4). The oldest has read all of Roald Dahl's book and loves them. Both boys and their parents enjoyed listening to the stories while traveling during the Christmas holidays.
Abridged, Americanized versions of a classic 30 janvier 2015
Par cala lilly love - Publié sur
Achat vérifié
I should have read the reviews and description better. Two of the main stories that I wanted my daughter to listen too are the abridged versions and the Charlie story is an Americanized version. Not realizing they were abridged is my fault - I shouldn't have used my mobile device to find this (whole descriptions do not show in mobile format). Not using the original version for one of the most important stories is the manufacture's fault - this should be disclosed in the description. This was not okay with me. I will be eating the cost of a return it seems and finding a new audio book.
