Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said (by Philip K. Dick)
iOS Universal Books
FLOW MY TEARS, THE POLICEMAN SAID by Philip K. Dick (unabridged) was produced by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see below for features list).
Winner of the John W. Campbell Memorial Award for best novel in 1975.
Pop star Jason Taverner is the product of a top-secret government experiment that produced a selection of genetically enhanced people forty years ago. Unusually bright and beautiful, he’s a television idol beloved by millions—until one day, all records of his identity inexplicably disappear. Overnight, he has gone from being a celebrity to a man whom no one seems to recognize. And in a police state, having no proof of his existence is enough to put his life in danger.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the same 5-star recording that is available through other retailers for higher prices. It is unabridged and professionally recorded at Blackstone Audio by AudioFile Golden Voice narrator, Scott Brick. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“The author salutes George Orwell and Franz Kafka with a frightening story set in the dystopian American ‘future'... The expert Scott Brick adds his particular narrative skill to the mix, making Taverner's plight believable and eerily real.”

As Jason races to solve the riddle of his disappearance, Philip K. Dick immerses us in an Orwellian atmosphere of betrayal, secrecy, and conspiracy. Painting a horribly plausible portrait of a neo-fascist America, he explores the meaning of identity and reality in a world skewed by drugs, genetic enhancement, and a culture of celebrity.
