    "Perfect"

    I have no words to describe how exciting, interesting and sometimes touching this story is, so you'll just have to read it yourself and find out. The narration is also excellent - Dan Stevens has a wonderful voice which suits Dahl's autobiography exactly. As an aside, Boy is equally good.

    "Fascinating"

    A direct follow on story from Roald Dahl's book 'Boy' and both were fascinating and captivating reading. A captivating story which provides a fascinating perspective on life during WWII adding both humour and feeling to a tremendously difficult period.
