I've only read the LandLady from this compilation of short stories, but I wanted to share my English language studednts' comments on it, from Buenos Aires:

(we used your comments on Goodreads in class to stimulate further ideas about the story and these comments)

It was a great story. It was full of mystery because even in the end, you didn’t know what happened with the boy.

The Landlady is a good story, but I don’t like how it ended. In the best part of the story, when you are getting real

I'm only writing a review on the Landlady, cuz we rea that in class in Language Arts. Can I just say that this story was the FLIPPIN CRAZIEST STORY I'VE EVER READ??!!??!!??!!??!!

The Visitor - very provocative and unexpectadly unpredictable yet logical at the same time. It has several climaxes where the plot becomes more revealing and thoutful, makes you question some things. Exactly my type of read.

I'm writing about the Landlady, which is one of my favorite stories by Roald Dahl. Clever and full of nuances, one can sense that the bizarre landlady hides something sinister. This short story is unsettling and creepy; it will leave a bitter aftertaste( in a good way).

The Landlady was one the best, most irritating stories I've ever read! We read it in eighth grade and it was the first story that truly left an impression on me!

Works titled as "Novels of [Author], such as [novel1], [novel2]..." are very arguably deceptively advertised
