9780141037332: Going Solo (Popular Penguins)

Roald Dahl's Going Solo is the marvellous account of his life as a young man. He describes getting his first job in Africa and his wartime exploits as an RAF fighter pilot, where he was shot down in the Libyan desert. Continuing the story he began in Boy, the first part of his memoir, the master storyteller conjures up a real-life world as magical and unnerving as any he writes about in his fiction.

About the Author:

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.

From AudioFile:

Roald Dahl outdoes himself as he brilliantly portrays the horrors of war, along with the wonderful details that made up his life as a young soldier during WWII. Derek Jacobi presents Dahl as though he had been there. We join Dahl as he learns to fly, observes the carnage of war, and experiences the mixed emotions that haunt most soldiers. Whether portraying Dahl's conversational style or his letters to his mother, Jacobi is splendid, perfectly recreating the different speech patterns and accents of the many people Dahl encountered during the war. All ages will gain a valuable history lesson, complete with music, humor, and drama. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
