Product description

Review

His account of life as a fighter pilot in the Western Desert and in Greece has the thrilling intensity and the occasional grotesqueness of his fiction (Sunday Times)

Very nearly as grotesque as his fiction. The same compulsive blend of wide-eyed innocence and fascination with danger and horror (Evening Standard)

A non-stop demonstration of expert raconteurship (The New York Times Book Review)

Book Description

The second instalment about the incredible life of Roald Dahl. An astonishing autobiography brought to life by one of England's leading actors, Ian Holm. It will capture the attention and the imagination of adults and children alike.

I think the only way this could not be given 5 stars is if one is utterly heartless! Dahl's style somehow translates incredibly well from childrens novels to this more adult memoir of his time as a pilot in the war. It is recalled with alarming clarity and is almost as fantasticly unbelievable than his ficton. The book really is suitable for all although just occasionally it ventures towards darker themes that are handled deftly and sympathetically.

Brilliantly written, witty accounts of Roalds life during the second world war.
Other books required to complete his full life history.

Going Solo follows on from Boy: Tales of Childhood and looks at Roald Dahl's journey into adulthood as he joins the British Airforce not long before the start of World War II. This is another great listen, with another great narration by Dan Stevens.

Interesting, as is Boy, but feels a little too self-congratulatory. Offers lots of enlightening info for Year 6 and Year 7 students studying the wars.
