Please note: In S.,
J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst conceived of a multi-layered novel-within-a-novel
that involves handwritten notes in the margins and physical objects slipped
between the pages. Because an audio edition is unable to recreate those
innately visual pieces of the story and the intended experience of S., the text of Ship of Theseus has been recorded here.
Award-winning actor Graeme Malcolm reads the work of an
incendiary novelist who may never have existed at all. What is Ship of Theseus, and who is its
mysterious author V.M. Straka? Conceived by filmmaker J. J. Abrams and written
by acclaimed novelist Doug Dorst, Ship of
Theseus is the central novel within the experience that is S., a multi-faceted narrative of love
and mystery. Ship of Theseus is at
its core and is the final book written by a man shrouded in deception and
violence. It tells the mystical adventure of an equally mysterious figure, who
is struggling to discover his own identity.
Abducted onto the eponymous ship, the main character is
swept into a story that spans oceans and ports, mountains and caves, capitals
and citadels. Two things sustain him: his lifelong search for his love, Sola;
and the infernal purpose of the ship and its crew. Equal parts Kafka and
Lovecraft, Ship of Theseus is both a
frightening adventure and a philosophical treasure hunt. Download and start listening now!
