abrupt ending

the story is wonderful though it feels so unfinished that I'd rather advise people not to begin listening unless they want to be disappointed in the abrupt ending. the story leaves you suspended with more than a few questions reeling around in your head.

nice sequel

this continuation from Charlie and the chocolate factory is a bit more darker than the first one and was more like an episode of Doctor Who.
