Short Story #237: Man From the South by Roald Dahl
Title: Man From the South
Author: Roald Dahl
ReflectionIt's an entertaining story by Dahl who I had read previously this year. The betting nature of this game reminds me of other stories like The Most Dangerous Game and the like. I like that we never quite find out if the sailor would have been successful with all 10 tries. Given the oddity of these two stories, I think I will need to read more Dahl as his style has an interesting mood about them: dark and curious.
