Beyond the Book - 'The Free'

Regular Price:$0.00

Publisher's Summary

In his novel The Free, award-winning author Willy Vlautin captures the experiences of three memorable characters who are looking for meaning in distressing times. Vlautin addresses issues that transform ordinary people’s lives - the cost of healthcare, the lack of economic opportunity, and the devastating scars of war - and celebrates the resiliency of the human heart.

Here, Vlautin reads excerpts from The Free, discusses the inspiration for the book, and shares his own thoughts on its main characters. Accompanied by Vlautin's own music, this recording offers a behind-the-scenes look at this unforgettable novel.

    "I could NOT get the book to PLAY!!!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I tried to listen to this book several times, with no success at getting the book to play all the way through with out stopping. The book would start to play, and then freeze within the first minute of playing every time.

    Listening to a good book is better than listening to music when I work out. It takes my mind on a journey! :)

    "the reading was distracting"

    I couldn't get giver the inflection - really distracting. This might benefit from a different narrator.

    Just another girl with too many books and not enough time for them all.

    "Just a Sample"

    The free version of The Free Audiobook is not a complete version. Just a sampler. I think the story is interesting and a bit dark. I might get the full version based off of this sample.
