Description

GARBO by Barry Paris (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

"A witty, clearheaded correction to all the misinformation that has become part of the Garbo legend." (Vogue)

No other twentieth-century film artist so captivated the world, or spent so much energy trying to hide from it. Paris's biography supplants the legend of Garbo the "enigma" with a revelation of the real woman: serious, playful, passionate, funny, and curious.

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®-winning narrator, Anna Fields. 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.

“Fields' sardonic and wry style fits well the public persona of Garbo.” (AudioFile)

• EXPERIENCE. About 22 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players.

• PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap.

• SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing.

• CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average.

• CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come.

• OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed.

• AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again.

• TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed.

• FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features. We are very responsive to our listeners and appreciate all feedback and ideas.

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy biographies or who like reading books about the Golden Age of Hollywood.

_

No other twentieth-century film artist so captivated the world, or spent so much energy trying to hide from it. Here is the unknown Garbo, from her troubled childhood in a working-class suburb of Stockholm, to Hollywood where she reigned as the divine star, to her unintentional retirement at thirty-six, self-exiled for the last half-century of her life.

We see Garbo against the backgrounds of Europe, Hollywood, and New York. We see her serious, playful, passionate, funny, curious, within her circle of intimates. Paris's biography supplants the legend of Garbo the “enigma” with a revelation of the real woman, whose grip on our imagination remains as powerful today as it was almost seventy years ago when she dazzled the world in "Flesh and the Devil."
