Different type of story for Dahl

My son had to do a report on this author. As a history buff he thought this book was excellent. Different type of stories for Roald Dahl but he enjoyed them.

Duplicate story!

Roald Dahl is a great author with a wonderfully wicked sense of humor and take on life. I have another collection of his short stories and was sad to discover this short little collection had one of the stories from my larger collection. The stories contained in this collection show a side of Dahl not always seen, a more serious side without the wicked twists that are always enjoyable in his stories. The collection is short, and left me wanting more written in this style that is somehow different, yet still has Dahl's voice.

Who wants to be a fighter pilot after reading this?

Roald Dahl is mostly known for his short stories and childrens' books, both often funny with a strange twist. ¨Over to You¨ contains 10 fictional stories that all have something to do with flying. For those who have an idealistic view of the life of fighter pilots, it's an interesting read. Dahl, who himself was a fighter pilot during WWII, does a brilliant job describing the decisions and actions that a fighter pilot has to make, and that's not all fun. Dahl portrays his characters in a remarkable atmosphere and with a sense of tragedy that is truly impressive.

Over to You

Over to You is one of the few books I've read that have actually kept me truly in suspense. Each one of the ten stories were unlike eachother, yet still contained the great quality. The book's reality is increased with the knowledge that it was written by a man who participated in World War II. The ironic twist and unspected ending make it a great read. Take my word,"Buy this book!"
