Description

PARROT AND OLIVIER IN AMERICA by Peter Carey (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“Parrot and Olivier in America grabs its subject and marches down Main Street playing full out, provoking a reader’s delighted applause.” (New York Times)

Olivier is the traumatized child of aristocratic survivors of the French Revolution. Parrot is the motherless son of an itinerant English printer. Born on different sides of history, their lives will be joined by an enigmatic one-armed marquis.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-winning narrator Humphrey Bower. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“I finished it with unabated enjoyment….The language is vivid, forceful and poetic. There are terrific set pieces…moments Dickensian in their vividness….It’s a dazzling, entertaining novel.” (The Guardian)
