The Story of the Bible: Audiobook App



History or myth? The word of God or the words of men? What is the Bible? This history, especially written for this recording, describes clearly and concisely how the Bible came into being, what it contains and its appearance in the ancient languages of Aramaic, Hebrew, Greek and Latin. After 400 years, the King James Version remains a religious text and a literary epic, though many other translations before and since—William Tyndale, the Good News Bible—have influenced generations. This fascinating, accessible introduction places the Bible in its religious and cultural context, showing why men lived and died in its shadow.

Lady Windermere’s Fan: Audiobook App



Oscar Wilde’s first play confronts the hypocrisy of public ‘morality’ compared with genuine, private kindness. When it opened in 1892, Lady Windermere’s Fan was an instant success and now, a century later, it continues to be revived frequently. The reasons for its popularity are not difficult to identify: the play’s witty dialogue contains many of Wilde’s most quoted aphorisms, its stylish setting provides opportunities for elegant presentation, and its cast of memorable characters play out a story which is genuinely moving. This new audiobook app boasts a cast worthy of Wilde’s creative genius.

Classic Ghost Stories: Audiobook App



Oh, Whistle and I'll Come to You My Lad remains one of the most read and truly unnerving ghost stories ever written and it, along with many others, was recited by James himself (as was the tradition every Christmas) to the pupils of The King’s College Choir School. Hopefully by a crackling fire, a few flickering candles, and not too much wind! These tales, above all, are spine tingling and thoroughly ripping yarns.

So sit back by the light of your flickering candle and enjoy. Your disposition may never be the same again.

Robinson Crusoe retold for younger listeners: Audiobook App



When his ship is wrecked in a storm, Robinson Crusoe finds himself stranded on a desert island with no-one to help him and no chance of rescue. Scared and alone, he tries to make a life for himself: building shelters, hunting food, taming animals, crafting boats and making clothes. But just as his life appears to be settled, he sees someone else’s footprint on the beach and a different struggle for survival begins, this time against cannibals and pirates. Roy McMillan combines an abridged version of Defoe’s novel with his own helpful explanations to retell the story for younger listeners.

Great Poets of the Romantic Age: Audiobook App



The Tyger… I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud… Ode to the West Wind… The Rime of the Ancient Mariner… Ode to a Nightingale… We’ll go no more a-roving… ‘All good poetry’, wrote Wordsworth, ‘is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings’, and this was to be one of the hallmarks of the Romantic poets. With a dynamic spirit, these great English poets made a conscious return to nostalgia and spiritual depth. Each chose a different path, but they are united in a love of moods, impressions, scenes, stories, sights and sounds. In this collection of more than forty poems are some of the finest and most memorable works in the English language.

King Arthur & the Knights of the Round Table: Audiobook App



These tales are about how, many years ago, Arthur the once and future King of England, set out to save his country from the troubles that plagued it, aided by the brave knights of his Round Table, and the most famous sword in the world, Excalibur; how Merlin the wizard fought against the wicked Morgana le Fay’s enchantments, and how Arthur loved and lost the beautiful Guinevere, his Queen. Benedict Flynn has a sure touch with the retelling of legends for a younger audience.

From Shakespeare, with Love: Audiobook App



William Shakespeare’s ‘sugared sonnets’ circulated privately amongst his friends and colleagues for many years, but the public had to wait until their publication in 1609 to enjoy these masterpieces on every aspect of love. Whether it’s fidelity, obsession, jealousy or the love of friends, Shakespeare seems to know about it all. To celebrate the 400th anniversary of their publication, a rich variety of actors were brought together by Naxos AudioBooks to show the many different ways in which these sonnets can be interpreted. This award-winning recording now forms the present app, complete with all the texts.

“A must for any collection.” AudioFile [Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award]
