With the Jubilee celebrations almost upon us, Audible.co.uk have broken out the red, white and blue bunting and are currently running a special Best Of British promotion for UK-based members, offering 25% off selected titles including a couple read by David Tennant. The titles are available as mp3 downloads and the offer runs until 10am on Friday 1st June.
The unabridged version of Silver: Return To Treasure Island offers a whopping 11 and a half hours of David’s narration, which has got to be enough to see you through even the worst of the Bank Holiday traffic jams. At the moment you can snap it up for just £13.03 instead of the full price of £17.38. The novel, written by Sir Andrew Motion, is a sequel to the much-loved children’s classic Treasure Island and is published by Whole Story Audiobooks. From the product summary:
July, 1802: In the marshy eastern reaches of the Thames lies the Hispaniola, an inn kept by Jim Hawkins and his son. Late one night, a mysterious girl named Natty arrives with a request from her father, Long John Silver. The pirate proposes that Young Jim and Natty sail to Treasure Island in search of Captain Flint’s hidden bounty, left behind many years before….
Featuring a cast of noble seamen; murderous pirates; and stories of love, valor, and terrible cruelty, Silver is a worthy sequel to Treasure Island and a work of extraordinary authenticity and imaginative power from one of England’s greatest writers.
The award-winning Doctor Who: Dead Air is reduced from £6.70 to £5.09. The exclusive audio-only adventure read by David features the Tenth Doctor as he trails an unseen deadly creature through time and space:
Hot on the heels of a creature that exists through sound, the Doctor lands on a pirate radio station boat in the late 1960s. The creature has already killed some of the DJs, and the Doctor befriends the survivors. But then the lights go out, and a desperate race for survival begins. Who can the Doctor trust in the dark?
