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."
