Poison (A Roald Dahl Short Story) (Unabridged) - Roald Dahl


Roald Dahl: Poison (Audiobook Extract) read by Richard E. Grant by Penguin Books UK

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Poison a short, sharp, frightening story from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. Read by the actor Richard E. Grant.

In Poison, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a man waits in paralysing fear for the venomous snake asleep on his stomach to awaken . . .

Poison 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; a very unusual painting which proves to be more valuable than anyone, especially its owner, could ever have predicted; 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.

Richard E Grant's film work includes: L.A. Story, Gosford Park, Franz Kafka's It's a Wonderful Life and Withnail and I. His television work includes: The Crimson Petal and the White, Posh Nosh and The Scarlet Pimpernel.
