I’m not really a fan of short stories, very rarely do I find a collection where I can connect to the characters and gain everything I look for in a story in a short space of words.  But Roald Dahl is the master of short stories, right?  Even though I still can’t get my head around the fact that this is the same guy that wrote such fabulous children’s books.

I decided I’m not going to rush these and will read and appreciate the stories at a slower pace – loving the fact that this collection includes the one where the woman kills her husband with a lamb chop and then serves it up for the Police!
