THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE by Philip K. Dick (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Winner of the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1963!
This harrowing, Hugo Award-winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas.
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 Earphones® Award-winning narrator, Tom Weiner. 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.
“Weiner delivers a classic performance that captures the Orwellian atmosphere that abounds in this tale….One of the best and most complex readings this year!”—AudioFile

It’s America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. It’s all because some twenty years earlier the United States lost a war and is now occupied jointly by Nazi Germany and Japan.
This Hugo Award-winning novel is the work that first established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction, bridging the barrier between genre fiction and the serious novel of ideas.
