JD Vette writes the following about Going Solo :
ISBN D131Zd2 Publisher Jonathan Cape 1986 By JD Vette Going Solo is one of the funniest autobiographies Ive ever read. The story opens as Rohld Dahl boards a boat to go to Africa so he can work for the SHELL OIL COMPANY. On the way he discovers that every morning the major and his wife dance naked around the deck of the ship and later that morning he finds out one woman wont touch food with her hands. A few nights later he realizes his roommate is afraid to admit hes bald. When he arrives he saves two of his friends from the two deadliest snakes in Africa. He also watches a lion carry off the cooks wife. When WWII breaks out he goes off to become a pilot. This leads to many near deaths in his stay with 80 squadron. After WWII, Dahl goes back home to a very relived mother. Going Solo explains how Rohld comes up with some of his outrageous ideas. He quite clearly had a funny and treacherous beginning of adult life. The reader will read until their eyes pop out! Rohld Dahl had a great character development. Anybody will enjoy Going Solo!
