Description

DODSWORTH by Sinclair Lewis (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “Lewis is an ingenious satirist of the American middle class…” (Oxford Companion to American Literature) Sam Dodsworth, fifty-year-old millionaire and “American captain of industry,” is off on a tour of Europe with his beautiful and narcissistic wife Fran. But the pretensions of the cosmopolitan scene prove more enticing to Fran than her husband. Stamped with Lewis’s signature satire, Dodsworth is wickedly observant of America’s foibles. 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 Grover Gardner. 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. “[An] entirely enjoyable performance by Grover Gardner….always entertaining and realistic.” (Publishers Weekly) •EXPERIENCE.

Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing. •CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN.

Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come. •OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready!

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy the work of Sinclair Lewis or who like satires on American society. ___________________ Meet Sam Dodsworth, an amiable fifty-year-old millionaire and “American Captain of Industry, believing in the Republican Party, high tariffs, and, so long as they did not annoy him personally, in Prohibition and the Episcopal Church.” Dodsworth runs an auto manufacturing firm, but his beautiful wife Fran, obsessed with the notion that she is growing old, persuades him to sell his interest in the company and take her to Europe. He agrees for the sake of their marriage, but before long, the pretensions of the cosmopolitan scene prove more enticing to Fran than her husband. Both a devastating, surprisingly contemporary portrait of a marriage falling apart and a grand tour of the Europe of a bygone era, Dodsworth is stamped with Sinclair Lewis’ signature satire, wickedly observant of America’s foibles, and great fun.
