Editorial Reviews

Keawe buys a magic bottle containing an imp who grants every wish to the bottle's owner. But it comes with a curse, and Keawe must sell the bottle before his death, lest he be sent to Hell. He gets everything he could ever want and sells the bottle, but soon afterwards he contracts a disease. Keawe must retrieve the bottle to cure himself. Robert Louis Stevenson's story is a classic depiction of the consequences of envy and desire, and the composed restraint of Roy McMillan's performance lends the tale a foreboding, almost ghoulish tone as Keawe's fortunes turn to tragedy.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the The Body Snatcher and Other Stories collection.

The Body Snatchers is one of Robert Louis Stevenson's most chilling tales. After many years, a chance encounter between two former medical students forces them to recall their sinister past and foul play that was better left buried. Perfect for long winter nights, these stories have been specially selected to create an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty. Read by Roy McMillan, with Naxos AudioBooks's trademark of carefully chosen music.
