I enjoy Roald Dahl's stories, whether for children or adults. He has a wonderful sense of farce and of how his fellow humans act. These 6 stories are ostensibly for adults but like all of Dahl's books will be enjoyed by a wide range of ages. The closing chapter is a bit of autobiography.

Just like Dahl's children's stories, these short stories "for all ages" reflect a dark side of human nature, in both adults and children.

I found only one story, "The Swan," truly disturbing. The others ranged from mildly interesting to fascinating. Included in this collection is a rather rambling account of how Dahl became an author, despite receiving horrible marks in Composition classes throughout his school career, followed by his first published story, "A Piece of Cake."

Those naughty Brits....if you thought Roald Dahl only wrote books for kids, you are missing out on his "adult" stories! Witty, funny, and always ironic, don't miss out!
