Dark and Twisted.

I’ve love Roald Dahl since I was 4 years old. This book is for adults/teenagers but not small children! Dark and very twisted. Some of the tales are available in other collections such as Kiss Kiss. Sterling performance by Mr Fry. Can’t go wrong.

Amazing

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would highly recommend this audiobook to you. Yes you. It doesn't matter how old you are, if you've read or listened to any of Roald Dahl before, or if this is what you'd normally listen too, it is amazing, fantastic and superb.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Vicar of Nibbleswicke and Other Stories?

My favourite story has to be the Vicar of Nibbleswicke due to the bazaar story and of course the wonderful writing of Dahl and fantastic voice of Stephen Fry.

Have you listened to any of Stephen Fry’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes. I've got a lot of Stephen Fry and love his reading and the man himself to piece's.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and no. I'd never leave a story in the middle due to how gripping they are. But it's nice to save them too.

Any additional comments?

You have to get this. You will not regret it. If you do, I'll eat my hat.

Mr Fry is very good so are the stories

These stories are memorable and Mr Fry reads them well. The stories can be a little quirky and are quintessentially British. I love them dearly.
