Extracts from the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Someone Like You, Roald Dahl's first collection of his world famous dark and sinister adult stories. Publishing 13th September and available in digital download and CD.
A wife serves a dish that baffles the police; a harmless bet suddenly becomes anything but; a curious machine reveals a horrifying truth about plants; and a man lies awake waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach.
