Charlie Chaplin and His Times (by Kenneth S. Lynn) Download

CHARLIE CHAPLIN AND HIS TIMES by Kenneth S. Lynn (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

With the psychologically penetrating insight that marked his award-winning Hemingway, Kenneth Lynn probes beneath the mystique of the Little Tramp, the first true worldwide celebrity.

This landmark, full-scale biography reveals the inner man whose unmatched comic genius masked a complex, sometimes tragic life. Lynn delves into Chaplins childhood and family, his often controversial relationships with four wives and a slew of mistresses, and his associations with British music hall impresario Fred Karno and silent screen star and pal Douglas Fairbanks. He addresses Chaplins political influences and convictions and brings a keen, critical intelligence to the meaning of Chaplins films to illuminate his elusive genius.

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 recorded at the Blackstone Audio studios by professional narrator Adams Morgan. 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.
