Maybe my dislike of Bond is bleeding in here but there's just something a bit too twee and artificial about this. Its like an impersonation of an E.Nesbit story but doesn't quite capture the magic of her writing.
On the upside at least its short, in fact much shorter than i expected. Can't quite point of anything particularly awful about the story it just failed to engage me. ( )

The book is brilliant, but David Tennant reading it? Flawless. ( )

❧ audiobook review

Okay, this was super cute. I saw the film as a kid (and somehow didn't realise that the movie was co-written by Roald Dahl???) and I knew it was based on a book (and somehow didn't know it was by James Bond's writer! I'm a loser, honestly) but I never got around to it. So glad I finally have. I think it's lovely that this was written for Ian Fleming's son. Reminds me of C.S. Lewis' dedication to his goddaughter: But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.


And the fact that David Tennant narrated the audiobook just solidifies its awesomeness. His voices are PERFECTION.

I think every avid reader must have a list (even if it's just in their head and not actually written down) of books they would like to read, but never seem to find the time. My list of "someday'' reads is quite extensive, but I have vowed that this year I will read more books from my own library shelves and also more books off my I'd-really-love-to-read-that list.

When I found out years ago that Ian Fleming (author of all those lovely 007 spy novels) wrote a children's book that one my favorite Disney movies is based on, at first I didn't believe it. I had to look it up to get proof. At that point, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang made it onto my list of books I wanted to read. And I finally did it! Well, I listened to an unabridged audiobook version -- but that still counts! And.....it was just....lovely!!!! The book is almost completely different from the movie....but that's true of almost any children's book Disney adapts into an animated film.

The Pott family includes Commander Caractacus Pott, his wife Mimsie and their two children Jeremy and Jemimah. Sometimes the family has a bit of financial trouble because the Commander is a bit eccentric....he's an inventor. Sometimes the things he invents are quite useful....and sometimes not. One day he invents a sweet that whistles and sells it to a candy company. He uses the money to buy a car.....and not just any car. After a bit of sprucing up, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang joins the Pott family. She's not just a car.....but a very very special car. A drive to the beach will teach the Pott family just how special Chitty is! What adventures they have!

I still love the movie with Dick VanDyke (the whole scene with the whistling candy had me humming Toot Sweet in my head).....but....the book is just happy, lovely and wonderful!!!

The audiobook I listened to is narrated by Andrew Sachs. It is unabridged and runs just shy of 2.5 hours. Sachs did a wonderful job...he reads at an even pace, and did great sound effects and voices for the characters. I have hearing loss, but was easily able to hear and understand every bit of the story.

So glad I finally got to enjoy the original story. I hope someday they make a movie that follows the book....the story really is great!! ( )

I just finished a 981-page epic yesterday that took me nearly 4 months to read. I knew i had to switch it up! So, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang it was! I started it last night before bed and finished it today at lunch! As part of my job, I have the privilege and honor of being the caretaker for the real Chitty Chitty Bang Bang II - a home-built race car from 1921 with an aircraft engine - that was the inspiration for Fleming's book, and the subsequent movie and Broadway show....but I had never read the book! Shame on me! But that part of my life is behind me. It was delightful......simple plain fun from start to finish....and obviously a quick read (Thank God!!!). I highly recommend. Next up...the movie......which i saw when it came out and never since.....shame on me! ( )
