Enjoyable but not top class Dahl

If you could sum up The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More in three words, what would they be?

Amusing, magical, slight

Would you recommend The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More to your friends? Why or why not?

If you enjoy Dahl you will certainly enjoy this book though it is not in the same class as his best works (Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG etc)

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

I have never come across audiobooks in which he features but am familiar with him from television. His performance here is excellent.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There is a good range of stories from the autobiographical to the magical. What makes this book worth listening to is the excellent narrator.
