In The Sound Machine, Roald Dahl tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a curious invention reveals a horrifying truth about plants . . .

The Sound Machine 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 sculpture comes between a scheming wife and her put-upon husband; the man waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach; and others.
