    One thought on “Switch Bitch”

    1. I don't think a lot of people realize this, but Roald Dahl was a crazy twisted motherfucker in the best way. Naturally, he's best known for his children's stories, like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, but what you may not know is that he wrote some adult's stories, including the ones in this volume of short stories, that are brilliantly, hilariously dark and fucked up.There is a collection of four stories in this volume. They are very short, and my paperback copy [...]

    2. hey did you know that acclaimed children's author Roald Dahl also had a sideline in dark, pervy short stories for adults? after reading several reviews of this book, it's clear that some people find this to be awfully disturbing. my God, a children's author, capable of such things! heaven forfend! oh you silly humans with your hilarious way of looking at things. although I shouldn't be judgmental. back on Robot Planet, we have long moved beyond such rudimentary binary coding - and perhaps you wi [...]

    3. What did I just read? WHAT DID I JUST READ???This was NO Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This was designed for a much, much older and maturer audience. My eyes. Scrub my eyes. This is not the Dahl I remembered.The Visitor - Oh good Lawd. Where to start. Should I start with how this old pervy Uncle Oswald finds himself alone in the desert and is rescued by a fine Middle-Eastern man (who has a gorgeous wife and daughter) and how the uncle couldn't decide which he'd rather screw? His host's wife [...]

    4. Roald Dahl's short stories for adults are amazing, terrifying, creepy, disturbing, sexy, disgusting, morally bankrupt, and well-written. It's an entirely different side of the children's author, one that doesn't get enough exposure. I mean, I'd hate to traumatize children with this writing, but for adults who grew up with Roald Dahl's books, this is a foray into something strange and disturbing and weirdly fun to read.

    5. Very misogynic, quite chauvinistic, mildly entertaining.Four very well-written short stories about "sex" written by a man who very likely had some major mommy issues. All four stories have something in common: rape, that is perceived by the author/protagonist/rapist as deserved and mutually-consented intimacy. This man clearly has no idea how woman experience sexuality, or even how female anatomy functions. This is by no means an explicit/graphic novel, as most of the action is implied, however [...]

    6. Original pre-read review, 4/15/2012:This does not sound like the Roald Dahl I remember. Color me intrigued.After reading, 9/10/2013:So yeah, okay, this isn't the Roald Dahl I remember. But somehow it is. His style is all there: the dry humor, creepiness, and gross-out shock value all play a big part in these stories. They're just not for kids anymore. These four tales are all about sex, sex, SEX. I was actually expecting them to be a bit more titillating, but it turns out they're not explicit at [...]

    7. Until recently, I didn't realize that Roald Dahl -- the famous writer of such children's classics as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, and the Fantastic Mr. Fox -- wrote adult-oriented stories as well. It was probably as surprising as when I found out Judy Blume wrote novels like Wifey.I decided to see what these stories were like and ordered SWITCH BITCH. SWITCH BITCH is a collection of four short stories of Dahl's. While I enjoy and appreciate the short story form, [...]

    8. Roald Dahl wrote a series of short stories for Playboy, before he got into the brilliant children's books, and here they are. They're all to some degree about sex, because Playboy, but they mostly avoid wicked bad sexism. I guess? More or less."The Visitor" is a Chauceresque story about a guy who wants to seduce a married lady, or her daughter, whichever, but it's super dark and whom has he ended up with? It's cool, nothing super special."The Great Switcheroo" is about two guys who hatch a compl [...]

    9. Well this book was something entirely different than I was used to when it comes to Roald Dahl! These 4 dark, sexual, but funny stories really showed me a different side of Dahl.First of all, I absolutely love his writing style. His sentences are mostly short and easy to understand, but the way he describes things and put his thoughts into words is just utterly brilliant. English isn't my native language, therefore it was incredibly pleasant to read this book.The 4 stories; The Visitor, The Grea [...]

    10. Switch Bitch is a collection of four short stories about sex, connected by the same protagonist, Oswald Hendryks Cornelius, whose hilarious or disturbing adventures were later developed into a delicious novel - My Uncle Oswald. I really recommend both (Switch Bitch and My Uncle Oswald) to adult readers.

    11. Well now, this might not seem the same Dahl you read when you were a kid. Then again we have four stories, nicely packaged together. I mean, theme-wise, the stories complement each other very well, and although I don't know much about original publication history and such, it wouldn't surprise me if Dahl intended for them all to end up in the same volume. The stories all deal with sex in one way or another. Many of them did in a roundabout way for Kiss Kiss, too, but it's not so roundabout here [...]

    12. Mainly funny but heart-wrenching as well, especially the "Last Act", it is an utterly delightful collection of short stories.

    13. Dahl's humor is flawless and he leaves you on the edge throughout every strangely sexual tale in this book. If you haven't read"Switch Bitch" , some wonderfully sly, bawdy and remarkably well-written entertainment awaits you.There are only four stories in this collection but its well worth reading, especially if you've already read Dahl's "My Uncle Oswald", one of the funniest books on erotic humor I've ever read. Makes me feel like reading the other book again, to re-acquaint myself with that V [...]

    14. this book was disturbing, morally wrong, cruel, and dark although it is one awesome book, it's hard to wrap your mind around it i couldn't and i still can't believe this guy wrote children's book

    15. Here’s a relatively common human experience; having the veil of bullshit shrouding the truth behind some childhood concept ruthlessly torn from your eyes, and being exposed to the cruel realities of a world more twisted than a silly straw. Your only image of Bill Cosby (or Bob Sagat, for the slightly younger crowd) was that of the consummate family man, always there to impart loving wisdom or perhaps slap a little Neosporin on that skinned knee. Then you were introduced to Cosby’s second LP [...]

    16. I think we can safely say that Dahl has a serious dark side. These four tales show that there is much more to this world famous children's author than chocolate factories and large friendly people. Each tale has a cunning and disturbing twist that leaves much for the readers' imagination to play and run with, as well as leaving the reader a little shocked. The first and last stories are both based on the diaries of dear Uncle Oswald, a traditional cad that enjoys travel, luxury and women and man [...]

    17. Just in case Switch Bitch’s title didn’t clue you in, let me assure you: this is not a collection of tales concerning chocolate manufacturing or big peaches. First appearing in Playboy, these 4 stories were written for an adult male audience with one thing on its mind—SEX! Mankind’s favorite pastime is what draws you into these stories yet it’s Dahl’s excellent plotting and diabolical creativity that keeps you turning the pages.The first story, “The Visitor,” starring the irrepre [...]

    18. In my naivete, I assumed that the only Roald Dahl I would ever read would be the canonical works I can remember from childhood. The BFG, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda and that's about it. Thanks for the memories, bye now. I was so wrong. Roald Dahl was a dirty, dirty man. now I have a strikingly different reason to thank him.This volume is comprised of fun little stories about sex, love, sex, and sex. Oh, and also sex. The stories were anecdotal in nature, and mostly enjoyable to read. How [...]

    19. Oh my god. I loved this book. It's so darkly funny and bitter and hilarious. I liked all of the short stories and just thoroughly enjoyed this book. What I love about Dahl is that almost all of his stories dovetailed into a neat little ending. This book is funny and sexy, verging on pornographic and it has restored my love for him absolutely. These stories were all totally absurd, but they were just what I needed and I was totally in the mood to read this book. What I love about this author is t [...]

    20. Hilariously twisted and just what I would expect from Roald Dahl. It's definitely no children's book but you'll shake your head and chuckle the whole way through!

    21. "Del mismo modo que una mujer aficionada a los caballos acabará por tener las piernas estevadas de tanto montar, a una mujer muy apasionada los hombros se le redondean curiosamente de tanto abrazar a los hombres. Se trata de una deformación profesional, la más noble de todas ellas"Relegar la lectura de Roald Dahl a sus historias infantiles me parece el error más grande que pueda cometerse. Cuatro relatos de lo más ameno, divertido, terriblemente amoral, sorprendente y desconcertante. Donde [...]

    22. I am a huge fan of Roald Dahl, but this book was a disappointment. I started reading a few pages, but I just had to drop the book after the fourth page because it was so boring. It lacked the mystical feeling that Roald Dahl would bring in his stroies. Maybe this book is one of his adult collection so he has a different writing technique. I guess I am more into his children's collection.

    23. Four short stories about rooting. The first and final stories are humorous. The middle two very poor.

    24. this was excellent. short, sexy and excellent. excellent. eggggsellent. i loved it, i recommend it to all! Uncle Oswald will soon become one of my top fictional characters, I can foresee it.

    25. Last I picked up a Roald Dahl book was in my childhood, from his typical children collection. Therefore when I stumbled upon this little pleasure of secrets the reviews were most astonishing; this only intensified my curiosity to bear witness firsthand the scaring effects of such an absurd book had on the fond followers of Roald Dahl. Tail 1This tale was my favourite, it gripped me tight at times but sometimes I felt distant because some scenes were unnecessary, however it was incredibly unpredi [...]
