This is the last week (week 16) of the long 2017 Sync Titles. You need an Overdrive account , free and easy to use, (I use Android Play store) to get these audio books. (You download an odm file which you execute and Android takes you to your Overdrive App, if your version of Android does not do this automatically for you.)

This offer is on for a week, till Thursday 17th inclusive, US Eastern time.
The Metamorphosis is the notable classic one, £7 from Naxos Audio normally naxosaudiobooks.com/met…ed/

Gregor Samsa wakes up one morning to find he has been transformed into a

gigantic insect. This extraordinary tale of imagination was written by

Kafka against the backdrop of increasing turmoil in central Europe and

remains not just an affecting tale but a disturbing allegory. It is read

here, in a new translation, by master story teller Martin Jarvis.

Martin Jarvis starred as Jeeves in By Jeeves on Broadway in 2001. His films include the Oscar-winning Titanic and Mrs Caldicot’s Cabbage War. Countless television appearances in Britain and America include The Inspector Lynley Mysteries, Lorna Doone, A Touch of Frost, Murder She Wrote, Space, Inspector Morse and David Copperfield. He is, uniquely, recipient of the British Talkie award and the U. S. Audie award. His continuing series of BBC Just William recordings are audio classics. He received the OBE in 2000 for his services to drama. He has also read The Wind in the Willows, Metamorphosis, and Three Men in a Boat for Naxos AudioBooks.

relatively less hot even though it is a great freebie, because it is not the average popular freedie like a free cup of coffee or a free bar of choc or Jane Austen yet again; initially the hot voters were the same number as cold voters (one would wonder why cold vote something that would otherwise costs £7 to buy from Naxos Audio and is now free)!

Thank you for this. I have recently been reading up on Godel and there are a few references to Kafka so was on my to read list, this should be a good intro.
Stop moaning about free deals compared to yours, it's 153° including mine. Kafka isn't everyone's cup of coffee. Read metamorphosis many years ago but worth a listen again. Cheers.
Thanks very much, op. A great find.

I got the other book, shadowshaper as well. For very easy listening, like when driving.
