In 1926, the American version of the film classic Metropolis was cut in half, now for the first time in seventy years you can experience the whole story. A very important book in the development of the audiobook industry. The music and sound effects are piped through differant speakers so the listener gets the surround sound or 3-D effect. The futuristic music alone (and the listener's imagination) tells part of the story without any words describing the action. The end result: a virtual reality like you've never experienced before.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victor Mabuse | 2/10/2014

    " To have the book that brought about my favorite film is a treasure. It is a great companion to fill in the characters with more depth and to introduce you to characters not found in the film. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 1/11/2014

    " It seems very good. A little hard to follow at the beginning, but very good. The descriptions of the buildings and characters and their contained emotions are very indepth "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philip Athans | 1/11/2014

    " I read a badly translated, horribly edited e-book version, but it was still pretty cool. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noni "MissVersatile" Cavaliere | 10/16/2013

    " The Vega Wire translation makes much more sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Mikos | 10/6/2013

    " Only should be read by fans of the movie. I think there were a few problems in translation from German. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dipa Raditya | 9/27/2013

    " Better seen the movie to get the images of it. For science fiction hardliner, this book is totally recommended :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CJ | 9/22/2013

    " The movie was really faithful to the book. One character in the movie seemed to be made from 2 in the book, but that's okay. Really, a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ragnell | 8/15/2013

    " This book was deeply enjoyable. One of those authors that draws you in right away with the opening description and keeps you involved with the romance and action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie Surani | 7/12/2013

    " Excellent story -- poor edition. Lots of typos in this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 5/13/2013

    " I couldn't get through the whole book. It was interesting but it moved very slow in my opinion. I enjoyed the movie better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 11/21/2012

    " I chose this edition because it includes beautiful illustrations by Michael Kaluta. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caitlin | 10/20/2012

    " I read this on my iphone, for free. There might have been some errors in translation or transcription. It was kind of hard to follow at times. Think I will have to re-read, maybe on paper. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake Ebel | 8/16/2012

    " Really enjoyed this one but it isn't your standard read. Very poetic sci-fi in some ways. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Montagne | 1/1/2012

    " Many good reviews of this in libraries... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul McCann | 12/16/2011

    " Worth reading only if you're very enthusiastic about the film; I've never read anything quite like it, mostly because I'm not sure you're supposed to use language the way this does. Not sure if that's Ackerman or Harbou, though. "
