Matilda (2013)

An all-time classic covered in a masterful audiobook

Five-and-a-half-year-old Matilda is already reading the likes of Hemingway and Dickens while computing complex sums in her head at the drop of a hat. But she has a horrible family who despise her and her precocious intellect – which is nothing compared to the flat-out hostility of her new school’s headmistress, the monstrous Miss Trunchbull! Luckily, Matilda finds a soulmate in her kind teacher Miss Honey and together they set out to teach the bullies a lesson, once and for all!

Matilda was Roald Dahl’s last masterpiece. He wrote some other books afterward but they don’t measure up to Matilda as among his greatest accomplishments. And it is a masterpiece. I love this book. This is my third, maybe fourth time re-reading it, and each time I’ve read it, from my first time at a single-digit age to now in my thirties, Matilda never fails to blow me away or put a smile on my face. Dahl’s reputation as the consummate children’s author remains unassailable thanks to books like this.

“Kate Winslet, an obviously great actress, brings this story to life. Without a hint of timidity, she dives into each character, making them all feel truly unique without pulling you out of the story with unnecessary exaggeration.”

The Book Guide® Editor

In this Audiobook Kate Winslet was fantastic. We can’t see how anyone could have done a better job! What a great and uplifting story by Roald Dahl. You cheer for Matilda, Miss Honey, and all the kids at the school. Seriously, could there be worse characters in a book besides the Wormwoods and Miss Trunchbull?

It’s not a long audiobook and it’s rather lovely with how everything goes down at the end. Cheers all around for Maltida and Miss Honey!
