Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Trickery by Roald Dahl, read by Kevin Eldon, Stephen Mangan, Cillian Murphy, Derek Jacobi, Richard E. Grant, Stephanie Beacham, Jessica Hynes, Andrew Scott and Tom Felton. There's a whole world of Dahl still to discover in a newly collected audiobook of his deliciously dark tales for adults....

How underhand could you be to get what you want? In these 10 tales of dark and twisted trickery Roald Dahl reveals that we are at our smartest and most cunning when we set out to deceive others - and, sometimes, even ourselves.

Here, among others, you'll hear of the married couple and the parting gift which rocks their marriage, the light-fingered hitch-hiker and the grateful motorist, and discover why the serious poacher keeps a few sleeping pills in his arsenal.

Roald Dahl reveals even more about the darker side of human nature in seven other centenary editions: Lust, Madness, Cruelty, Deception, War, Innocence and Fear.

A great bag of Tricks

This was a fun set of stories to listen to; all were slightly different but all involved a twist in the tale of one kind or another. A great cast of narrators made the experience even more enjoyable. This is definitely one I will be dipping into again.

Good collection

Good collection of stories. Only the last story has an issue and that is that my copy repeated it for some reason. Otherwise very good and worth a listen.

Loved this quirky collection of stories

Would you listen to Trickery again? Why?

In time, yes - there is an interesting breadth of different stories, all with an unexpected twist and a great deal of humour and pathos.

What did you like best about this story?

The variety of narrators. Stephanie Beacham, Andrew Scott and Richard E Grant in particular are excellent.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

They all brought their own stories to life.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It frequently made me laugh out loud.

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to listening to the rest of the collection.
