Roald Dahl Omnibus
I read the Roald Dahl story Taste last night to someone who hadn't been read to since childhood. I enjoy reading aloud, although I have to remember to grab water, since my throat starts drying out after a while. It was a good story, too. I really liked the writing style, although I felt the ending was a bit abrupt. Still, a good story, with some especially good imagery of lips and tongues. I must have read it adequately, since that imagery stayed with my audience.

Someone on my friends list has mentioned trying to get a story reading night together. If that happnes, or if I end up doing one myself, I think I'd like to read this story, or maybe one of Dahl's other stories. In any case, I'm interested in reading the rest of the stories in this book.

If there is nobody around and it's safe

I love reading aloud! I might just pick up the very story you mentioned and do so right now.
Whims are for the strong!

*shivers at the user pic*

*recovers, then has an urge to listen to the Bilbo song again*

I hope you enjoy the story.

*shrieks* WHY did you have to mention the userpic? Why, why why? Because I didn't give a close look until you mentioned it, and then I recognized it! AAAAAAaaaaaaa!
