Summary

In 1926, the American version of the film classic Mertopolis 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 3d 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.

"Jolly good job!" (Arthur C. Clarke)

Hard going

Highly distracting music and a baffling decision to leave some of the story to your imagination.

Still in the dark

Watched the movie and wanted to read the book so I could understand the movie better...well I heard this audio version with sound effects...and think I need to actually read the book. But there is something about it
