Description

OCCUPIED CITY by David Peace (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“A heart-thumping experimental novel which bursts the bounds of the usual genre categories…Exhilarating.” (Mary Whipple, Seeing the World Through Books)

In 1948, a public-health official arrives at a Tokyo bank claiming to be assigned to treat dysentery, but within minutes, ten employees are dead and the official has fled. This crime is the catalyst for a blistering novel told in twelve different voices, each playing a part in blurring the line between truth and lies: in their own lives, in the life of their city, their history, their nation, and the newly emerging postwar world.

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 a full cast, including Blackstone Audio’s award-winning narrators, Bronson Pinchot, Lorna Raver, and Stefan Rudnicki. 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.

“Powerful and ambitious…Peace [is] immensely talented.” (Kirkus Reviews)

• EXPERIENCE. About 12.5 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players.

• PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap.

• SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing.

• CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average.

• CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. 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! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed.

• AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again.

• TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed.

• FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features. We are very responsive to our listeners and appreciate all feedback and ideas.

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy novels that take place in postwar Japan, or who like psychological thrillers.

_

A public health official arrives at the Teikoku Bank in Tokyo saying there has been an outbreak of dysentery and he has been assigned by Occupation authorities to treat all who might have been exposed. The official distributes medicine and instructs the staff how to drink it. Within minutes, ten employees are dead and the official has fled, but the horrific crime is merely the catalyst for this blistering novel. The narrative’s staggering power and pathos comes from the twelve different voices telling the story. Each plays a part in a tangle of witting or unwitting complicity in blurring the line between truth and lies.
