Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
I really enjoyed this audio version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I'm kind of surprised I had not the read the book before. It was a lot of fun. The narration by Eric Idle was great. Two things kind of bothered me about the audio though. One was that it seemed a very abrupt ending. It felt like the story should go on. Which I guess it does in Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. The second thing was that I kept hearing Gene Wilder's version in my head while listening to the book -- how he didn't really try to stop the kids from misbehaving in the movie. Still -- a lot of fun!
