FREE AudioBook Download – ‘Matter’ by Iain M. Banks

September 7, 2010 Leave a comment

The Guardian & Observer (UK) with Audible UK have teamed up to give away a free audiobook per day! Lucky UK people!

The next freebie is ‘Matter‘ by Iain M. Banks, the most recent book from his the Culture series. Just click here to sign up – you’ll have to give your contact info etc. You’ll then get a link that you can use to download the audiobook from Audible.UK (you also have to sign up there).

*I don’t know if this is georestricted to just the UK as I didn’t try to download it – but I suspect that non-UK people will be locked out of this. (Not to worry though, why not try out Audible.Com where you get two free audiobooks when you sign up?)

This is a pretty good promo (good until 14 September!), ordinarily Matter would have cost you £10.49 to download!

Book Description:

Nominated for the Audiobook Download of the Year, 2008.

In a world renowned, even within a galaxy full of wonders, a crime occurs within a war. For one man 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 civilisations 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.
