The Landlady PDF Details.Dear readers, here we are offering The Landlady PDF to all of you. The Landlady is a very interesting short story which is written by Roald Dahl. This amazing story has got a 4.5/5 star rating on Amazon. You could also say that Dahl is telling the reader that danger lurks everywhere, even in the most innocuous settings. This is one of the best stories in the horror genre. “The Landlady” won “Best Short Story Mystery” at the 1960 Edgar Awards. He also got this award before for his famous short stories collection, Someone Like You (Best Short Story) which was published in 1954. The Landlady PDF – Plot Billy Weaver is a seventeen-year-old youth who has traveled by train from London to Bath to start a new job. Looking for lodgings, he comes across a boarding house and feels strangely compelled by its sign saying “Bed and Breakfast”. Through the window, he notices a parrot in a cage and a sleeping dachshund on the floor. When he rings the doorbell, it is instantly answered by a middle-aged landlady. Billy discovers that her boarding house is extremely cheap, and finds the woman somewhat eccentric and absent-minded, but very kind. When Billy signs her guest book, he finds only two names, both dated more than two years ago: Christopher Mulholland and Gregory W. Temple – names that seem curiously familiar to Billy. The landlady invites Billy for some tea, and Billy tries to remember where he has previously heard the names in the guest book. He seems to recall that Mulholland was an Eton schoolboy whose disappearance was reported in the newspapers. The landlady assures Billy that her Mulholland was a Cambridge undergraduate and that Mulholland and Temple are still staying upstairs in her boarding house. She says that Billy is a handsome young man, as were the two other guests. Billy is surprised to find that the parrot and dachshund he had seen through the window are both stuffed. The landlady says that she stuffs all her pets when they die. Billy finds that his tea tastes faintly of bitter almonds. He asks the landlady whether she has had any other guests since the two young men. The landlady replies, “No, my dear. Only you.” (The implication is that the landlady has poisoned Billy’s tea with cyanide and intends to stuff his corpse, as she has already done to Mulholland and Temple.)
