Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts Reviews
I bought a copy of this CD audiobook reading of these two hilarious Dahl poetry collections to see how the latest crop of Penguin Dahl readings measure up the tapes I had. Though there are some excellent readings such as Kate Winslet's absolutely divine and angelic version of Matilda, this disc of Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts is not one of the better ones in the 2013 batch of recordings. The readings tend to be dull and are taken at a dreary and dragging pace. A number of the readings sound apathetic and not really engaged.
