Roald Dahl is a favourite author of mine. His point of view and storytelling is unique and enjoyable…and sometimes a little off kilter.

This book is a collection of 11 short stories. Stories of the unusual. Stories you might expect to find on Twilight Zone.

The stories start out on a normal plane but little twists seem to appear. Twists that can take you in a very different direction and place.

“A Way Up To Heaven,” “Parson’s Pleasure,” and “The Champion of the World” are a few titles. The thing is the stories do tie to the titles but not in a way you expect. I suggest you read the book and find out what is behind these titles.

This is a book for older readers, but I have found that Dahl’s unique perspective can be found in the many kid books he has written. Definitely some unusual Good Reading… ( )

Rating: 2.75* of five

A cruel and demanding husband, or so his first wife Patricia Neal would have us know; a creepy old party, as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory amply demonstrated, with a great deal of disdain for Jewishness and gluttony and greed in general. His adult fiction is largely out of print in the US, and he was never really quite The Thing here as he was in Britain. I suppose his light sneers at us, so evident in his attitude towards the US's involvement in the Second World War, prevented his eventual literary rise from gaining the same boost as it did among the countrymen who saw, heard, absorbed his flying prowess and spying nous.

I decided to read this collection for some reason or another (maybe it was the 1960 Edgar-winning story, "The Landlady"?), I can't honestly recall why now. I know that I began to regret my decision as early as "William and Mary," the second story, wherein this is from the text of a letter written by Dahl as coming from beyond the grave of a man to his newly-widowed wife of thirty years:

"He is a magnificent neurosurgeon, one of the finest, and recently he has been kind enough to let me study the results of some of his work, especially the varying effects of prefrontal lobotomies upon different types of psychopath."
And then he goes on to give orders like "don't get a TV" and "disconnect the phone because I don't need it anymore"! How appalling. Sixty years ago, when this collection was published, that wasn't, whole and entire, a horrendous thing to say? I'd say it was, but I was a babe in arms at the time and have no direct knowledge of the way it would sound to the era's denizens. I suspect it wouldn't have raised an eyebrow on either of my parents, but they were right wingnuts and often didn't hear things that made, and make, my skin crawl.

And with this mordant but unamusing set of eleven weirdly unappealing tales, Dahl leaves my readerly ken for. fucking. ever. No more. No! I refuse. I liked three of the eleven stories enough to be glad that I'd read them, and recognized one story from my long-ago high-school read of it in an anthology I had to buy for school, but that's just not enough for me to want to know more about what went on in Roald Dahl's head.

This was a fantastic listening. There are ten short stories, each beginning very harmless and ending with something macabre each time. His writing style is great and British black humor comes with every story. As a listener, you wait curiously for the end, even if you can usually guess what will happen. The nape of the hairs begin to pose and it makes great pleasure when the solution comes. ( )

Dark, macabre and incredibly funny. I knew some of Dahl's children's books, but had never read any of his other work, so "Kiss Kiss" was a great surprise. I loved everything about the stories, but especially the black zany humour that Dahl so perfectly masters. A great collection, and I will definitely go back for more. ( )

Billy Weaver had travelled down from London on the slow afternoon train, with a change at Swindon on the way, and by the time he got to Bath it was about nine o'clock in the evening and the moon was coming up out of a clear starry sky over the houses opposite the station entrance.
