Summary

Penguin Audiobooks presents Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, read by the actor Douglas Hodge, who plays Willy Wonka in the hit musical adaptation of the book. Charlie Bucket and his family are rushing around the Earth at 17,000 miles an hour in a great glass elevator.

It belongs to the fantastic Mr Willy Wonka, and the adventure becomes even greater upon discovering they're not the only ones orbiting the Earth at that particular time....

Douglas Hodge is a multi-award-winning English actor, with Olivier and Tony awards for his performance in La Cage aux Folles, and nominations for his leading roles in Cyrano de Bergerac, Guys and Dolls, and Inadmissible Evidence.

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.

Cool book

It was the best book I have ever heard, but it could have had a bit more in the factory.

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.
