Roald Dahl’s Going Solo picks up where Boy left off, as Dahl heads to Africa at the tender age of 22 to work for Shell. The first part of the book charts his adventures just before the outbreak of WW2. As war breaks out, Dahl joins the RAF as a fighter pilot – not a comfortable job for a man of 6’ 6” – and he shares his stories of crash landings in North Africa and dogfights in Greece. Incredible stuff. Dan Stevens does a superb job with the narration, pulling off a wide variety of eccentric accents, suitably befitting of the oddball characters that Dahl meets along the way, and no-doubt used as inspiration for his, now famous, characters.
Don’t be misled by the cover art or author, this is very much a book for young adults and up.

Would you consider the audio edition of Going Solo to be better than the print version?
This book made my day. The narrator is outstanding and the memoir is one of the best from world war and ofcourse Roald Dahl is a darling..
Who was your favorite character and why?
The author- This is his memoir!
Great book, with an excellent narrator. I just wish Dahl would have talked about his spy days!
