5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Roald Dahl is, or should be, well known for his superb and highly imaginative stories for children, but he also had a remarkable and very different talent for adult literature. He always displays an acid, witty and even macabre sense of humour, insisting on human miseries: greed, deceit and revenge are mixed up from apparently innocent attitudes to obtain surprising and...

3.0 out of 5 stars It stated used and in good condition but I would say 'fair' would be more ..., 25 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Completely Unexpected Tales: Tales of the Unexpected and More Tales of the Unexpected (Paperback)
The cover of the book I received was quite different to the one shown and a very much older version, over 20yrs old! It stated used and in good condition but I would say 'fair' would be more accurate as part of the cover is torn off where I'm guessing a price tag once was. Although I know I paid practically nothing for the book I don't feel it was fairly described and there were other sellers selling at the same price and I could have bought one in better condition.
