Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of “Dip in the Pool”, a short, sharp story from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. Read by the actor Adrian Scarborough. In “Dip in the Pool”, Roald Dahl, one of the world’s favourite authors, tells an unsettling story of human folly. Here, a man acts rashly and life-threateningly to ensure he wins a prize . . . “Dip in the Pool” 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.
