Free Audio Book: Matter by Iain M. Banks

Posted by Simcha 5:10 PM, under | No comments

Today is the second day of The Guardian and Observer's week of free audio book giveaways and the book being offered for download is Matter by Iain M. Banks.

In a world renowned even within a galaxy full of wonders, a crime within a war. For one brother it means a desperate flight, and a search for the one - maybe two - people who could clear his name. For his brother it means a life lived under constant threat of treachery and murder. And for their sister, even without knowing the full truth, it means returning to a place she'd thought abandoned forever.

Only the sister is not what she once was; Djan Seriy Anaplian has changed almost beyond recognition to become an agent of the Culture's Special Circumstances section, charged with high-level interference in civilizations throughout the greater galaxy.

Concealing her new identity - and her particular set of abilities - might be a dangerous strategy, however. In the world to which Anaplian returns, nothing is quite as it seems; and determining the appropriate level of interference in someone else's war is never a simple matter.

Unlike yesterday's book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which turned out to be an abridged version of the book (to my great disappointment) today's download is unabridged.

To download the audio version of Matter for free, follow this link.
As I mentioned yesterday, you do need an Audible UK account to be able to download the audio book but it shouldn't be any problem to set up
