As audiobook.
The Sound Machine, a short, sharp, frightening story from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. Read by the actor Adrian Scarborough. In The Sound Machine, Roald Dahl, one of the worlds favourite authors, tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a curious invention reveals a horrifying truth about plants . . . The Sound Machine is taken from the short story collection Someone Like You, which includes seventeen other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who serves a dish that baffles the police; a sculpture comes between a scheming wife and her put-upon husband; the man waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach; and others. This story is also available as a Penguin ebook. Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahls Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahls stories continue to make readers shiver today. Adrian Scarboroughs television work includes: Upstairs, Downstairs, Gavin and Stacey, Cranford and Psychoville. His film work includes: The Kings Speech, Gosford Park, The Madness of King George and Vera Drake.
