Title: Switch Bitch

Author: Roald Dahl

Type: Fiction

Page Count: 144

Rating: 4/5

A lot of this book was dated and it has a few problematic things such as one of the characters saying that Egyptians don’t wash enough. But then he was supposed to be an unlikeable character, and so I’m pretty sure that Dahl did that for dramatic effect.

What’s interesting here is the subject matter and the nature of these stories. They’re specifically for adults as opposed to being written for kids like most of Dahl’s work, and they were originally published in Playboy Magazine.

Still, I enjoyed it, and I definitely think it’s worth picking up, especially because it’s so unusual to read Dahl writing for adults. It’s a bit of an eye opener and if you ask me, it’s a testament to his skill.
