    A thought provoking short story with an ending that leaves a lot to be desired PS By thought provoking I do not mean thinking about some magical uality in plants that makes them conscious I'm talking about how wonderful it would be to make a device like the ones that scientists use to listen to high pitched ultrasound and low pitched infrasonic noises around us Perhaps that would make us aware of our surroundings

    I heard this story from my mother It was in one of her old Alfred Hitchcock anthologys She read it to me when I told her eating meat was cruel and it has stuck with me my whole life It is a genius story told in Dahl's genius way Most people might not think on it much but I've never seen mowing the grass the same since

    A wonder machine A wondrous story Rating 45First published here on Aug 3 2019 Sound Machine is another genius of a shocker from Roald Dahl I cant help but wonder what his motivations were and how was his childhood like Hmm that's research for later Although the narrative leaves everything to conjecture I would like to believe The Sound Machine is the story of an eccentric genius who obsesses over uirky theories and inventions Klausner disregards his health so much so that his doctor has to visit him suo moto Klausner's current obsession is sound Sounds that are beyond the human decibel and wavelength meaning sound that we cannot hear What does that really sound like? I too have often wondered if fish scream or small organisms hear tectonic shifts Unfortunately I am not as motivated as Klausner to build a sound machine to satiate my curiosity He attempts just that and what happens as he tests his machine forms the crux of this psychological short story Klausner is excited he doesn't know what he'll hear Plugging it in he hears shrieks icy afraid and inhuman Are these animal sounds screams of plants howl of an invisible being or the shriek of a human soul? Besides is the doctor pretending to not have heard it or is he just protecting his friend? Well read ahead to find out I am not giving away the mystery so easily Given the uality of the narrative and the genre it comes as no surprise that this short story has a cult stature and a larger than life persona Sincerely it is worth a read or two Why only 45 then? I am disheartened it is only a short story Although some may argue that's the very beauty of it I would counter with the why not a novella theory Dahl a sadist?

    I had to read this for my English Creative Writing class and I liked it but it was uite weirdThis just like the trailer for Sausage Party I wasn't even brave enough to actually watch the movie leaves me with a feeling of fear of doing anything or hurting anyone I was just a bit messed up after reading this but also very happy to have finally read something by Roald DahlBesides all this I also felt that the ending was a bit abrupt not just about wanting to read but actually needing to close this story

    A story with a gripping starting about a science enthusiast person His passion reveals a bitter truth about life The spine tingling ending is what makes me adrenalized What if the substances around us have consciousness which is beyond our imagination Are we constantly humiliating them without knowing? Maybe we are maybe not

    The story belongs to the genre of science fiction though its aim is not merely to project some fanciful scientific idea It aims at making us conscious of the harm we are doing to plant life around us The story is narrated in the third person by the omniscient author In keeping with the reuirement of the story graphic details about sounds and machine have been given to explain Klausner's ideas about sound vibrations and the working of the machine Suspense is maintained throughout the story It is ironic that the machine meant to record the sound vibrations gets• shattered before the experiment is verified The 'story conveys the idea that all discoveries arid inventions have been the result of new crazy ideas Whenever a new idea is flouted we are bound to react to it as something crazy and we begin to call the person who dares to have such as idea an 'crazy' 'mad' 'abnormal' etc In this story Klausner an amateur scientist is obsessed with acoustics He believes that the human ear being unable to hear many sounds and vibrations can' be made to hear them with the help of a mechanical device that can capture sounds subtly Man then will be able to experience even the slightest vibrations or notes so created by the plants when they are injured or cut Klausner studies this idea and learns the pain felt by the plant when a rose stem is cut by his neighbour The similar cry of pain he feels is experienced by the tree when his axe strikes the tree A major theme of the story is that only very sensitive person have the hearts and minds to visualise and feel delicate things like the pain of the plants In this context we find that Dr Scott and Mrs Saunders do not have time or mind to feel the agonies of the plants or even creatures that are killed for fun or experiment Klausner is so pricked by the pain of the tree that he asks Dr Scott to stitch the gash of the tree andpaint iodine on it which he does just to oblige Klausner Neither Dr Scott nor Mrs Saunders believes in the strange theory of Klausner Both of them represent the worldly people who care little for the plant life In an interesting manner the writer draws our attention to the harm we cause when we fell down trees By making us aware that plants are like us he wants us to respect plant life to conserve environmentThe language employed to describe the machine which Klausner has devised to test his theory is uite suggestive Describing the machine the author compares it to 'the shape of a child's coffin' The phrase seems to indicate something morbid and evil would occur The end of the story is indicated in the beginning Something morbid does happen when a big branch of the tree falls on the mechanical device meant to record the sound vibrations of plants The tree heaves and the machine is shattered The story also refers to the massive silent slayings of plant life over the millennia The story leaves many uestions unanswered The reader would like to know what good the machine does to Klausner Has the apparatus actually provided access to the realm of the ultrasonic and allowed him to listen to nature? Has the device triggered further Klausner's lunacy? One is reminded of Pee's story 'The Tell Tale Heart' from the obsessive behaviour and heightened sense of hearing of Klausner the protagonist of the story
