    One thought on “Complete Tales of the Unexpected”

    1. Since these are short stories I took my time reading individual stories when I felt like picking up something short. I love Dahl's books for younger audiences and I was really looking forward to his signature whimsical humor (or "humour" since he's British). While it is present I found his writing for adults often contains a savage humor that's rather startling. Some of his writing contain social critique (Pig, the title of a story) and make me think. Some of it was rather macabre. Overall I can [...]

    2. Fantastic, macabre short stories. The one about the pilot in the Second World War was particularly heart-rending.

    3. Wonderful - loved almost all of these stories. And there are a hell of a lot of stories in here, so I admit my attention and enthusiasm was waning towards the end, it wasn't due to a lack of quality but too much of a good thing. When I glance back over the contents, all of the titles sparkle. Mostly deliciously macabre, some touching, some scary but all very wickedly clever. Dahl was a man who never lost his boyish humor and fascination with all things dirty, weird and mischievous.

    4. This is several short stories books combined, but not all of them are in the vein of tales of the unexpected. It started off well, and finished well, but the majority of the stories in the middle were a struggle to get through as i didn't find them very interesting at all compared to ones at the start of the book

    5. This book is a great companion with stories that amuse, tickle, upset and even shock the reader. What an amazing collection of stories!
