Lamb to the Slaugheter is a dramatic short story written by Roal Dhal.
Mary Maloney, a pregnant, housewife, is waiting the arrival of her husband from work very anxiously. Mary adores her husband. However, her husband tells her he is leaving her. Mary pretends she has not listened to her husband's news. She goes to the kitchen so as to prepare something for dinner although her husband tells her he does not want to eat; she takes a frozen lamb from the refrigerator and hits her husband in his head while he is looking through the window. The man falls dead on the floor. Mary gives a very organized aliby to the police who believe her.
I love Roal Dhal's stories, since they are appealing. They catch the reader's attention through mistery, black humour, ironic comments, etc.
