DARK IS THE SUN by Philip José Farmer (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). "The story proceeds briskly, with fresh inventions on every page...The particularly exotic settings and earthlike flora and fauna lend an atmospheric touch." (Fantasy and Science Fiction) Fifteen billion years in the future, as a darkened Earth nears its final gravitational collapse, a troupe of friends set out on an epic quest across the monster-haunted jungle wetlands of the dying planet. Their search leads them ultimately to an ageless being from another star who holds the key to escaping Earth’s fate. 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 narrator Rebecca Rogers. 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. "Farmer is as inventive as ever, and it is a joy to sit down with a book which is this much fun...Highly recommended." (Science Fiction Collector) •EXPERIENCE. About 14.5 hours of narration.
