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 and thus the full experience of S., only the text of Ship of Theseus, the novel at the heart of S., 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 J.J. Abrams, director of Star Wars, and written by Doug Dorst, an award-winning novelist, Ship of Theseus is the central novel within the experience that is S., a multi-faceted narrative of love and mystery. A mystical adventure of an equally mysterious figure, Ship of Theseus is Straka's final book about a man 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.

    An excellent way to focus on getting through the whole novel without being distracted by the footnotes and the dialogue in the margins. :) After reading the novel and the listening to this excellent narration of the novel itself, it's making reading and deciphering the ongoing story in the margins of the actual book that much more enjoyable. Highly recommended! :)
