The Soldier: A Roald Dahl Short Story (Unabridged) - Roald Dahl

Synopsis

Roald Dahl: The Soldier (Audiobook Extract) read by Stephen Mangan by Penguin Books UK


The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Soldier, a short, sharp, frightening story from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. Read by the actor Adrian Scarborough.

In The Soldier, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a chilling story about the dark side of life. Here, a man unable to feel pain slowly loses his bearings and mind . . .

The Soldier 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 curious machine that reveals the horrifying truth about plants; 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 Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.

Adrian Scarborough's television work includes: Upstairs, Downstairs, Gavin and Stacey, Cranford and Psychoville. His film work includes: The King's Speech, Gosford Park, The Madness of King George and Vera Drake.

This audiobook is available to download from iTunes UK, Audible.co.uk and eMusic.co.uk
