WISE BLOOD by Flannery Oâ€™Connor (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). â€œNo other major American writer of our century has constructed a fictional world so energetically and forthrightly charged by religious investigation.â€ (New Yorker) Flannery Oâ€™Connorâ€™s haunting and classic first novel is the story of Hazel Motes, a twenty-two-year-old caught in an unending struggle against his innate, desperate faith. This tale of redemption, retribution, false prophets, blindness, and wisdom gives us one of the most riveting characters in American fiction. 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 Audioâ€™s AudieÂ® Award-winning narrator, Bronson Pinchot. 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. â€œThere is in Flannery Oâ€™Connor a fierceness of literary gesture, an angriness of observation, a facility for catching, as an animal eye in the wilderness, cunningly and at one sharp glance, the shape and detail and animal intention of enemy and foe.â€ (New York Times Book Review) â€¢ EXPERIENCE.

This tale of redemption, retribution, false prophets, blindness, and wisdom gives us one of the most riveting characters in American fiction.
