Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Dahl Book for Grown-Ups Although this book is geared toward teens, I think that adults who enjoy Dahl's writing will enjoy this as well. The short stories are intriguing, & sometimes they ended before I wanted to stop reading about the characters or situations. Dahl is a master storyteller for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gruesomely Great ! Well, when I recieved this book I was extremely excited & read it right away. The stories are so twisted, and original I have become ADDICTED to this book, and read it non-stop, re-reading my favorite stories (Lamb leg slaughter!!!) It was just a great book!
