ABOUT THE AUDIOBOOK

This audiobook version of The Asylum... is extremely special in that it is a reading of the ALL NEW version of the book. EA has re-written her original book and this audio recording contains completely new story elements and even a new character! (Oh, and a NEW SONG too!)

ABOUT THE STORY

Straddling the bookshelves somewhere between psychological study, historical horror story, and fantasy fiction sits Emilie Autumn's debut novel, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls.

The Asylum... is the literary creation that altered the course of Emilie's career and changed the perception of who she was in the minds of both fans and friends. Culled directly from Emilie's real-life diary entries, the story begins with Emilie's suicide attempt and prompt imprisonment inside a psychiatric hospital for her actions as well as her bipolar disorder which is wrongly assumed to be the cause of them. The tale takes an unexpected turn when, whilst still in the psych ward, Emilie discovers evidence of a parallel dimension—a world that soon becomes indiscernible from her own. As the days drift on, the seemingly disparate worlds of the story's two lead characters (Emilie and Emily, her Victorian counterpart) begin to merge.

The Asylum... is a profoundly moving saga of suffering, sisterhood, and revenge that has empowered thousands of readers to create communities wherein the "unique" amongst us can support one another and cultivate pride in what makes us different.

Prepare yourself to enter a world most pray never to visit. But beware: It is much easier to get into the Asylum than it is to get out...

As if we didn't already know there is nothing Ms Autumn can't do...

She proves it yet again! When I got to the last 2 hours, I was at my desk leaning forward in my chair with as little light as possible absolutely enthralled by the story unfolding before me. At once ghastly, beautiful, sad and triumphant this book, in whatever format you choose to experience it, will not release you until it's finished with you. For that matter, it will still hold you fast. You may find yourself singing, weeping, cheering and gasping for air - sometimes all within a few minutes. You will fall in love with the inmates and feel their horrid plight as if you were within the filthy cells yourself. Few books I've listened to have involved me to this degree. You will want to destroy the villains and ache to rescue the hopeless victims who maintain an inner strength that astounds. I've spoiled enough I'm afraid. Experience this story for yourself. I cannot exaggerate its wonder!

Love it. I want more.

This is the first audio book I have ever purchased and it was the most fun! I really felt immersed in the world of the Asylum and I can't wait to see the Broadway production of this. I look forward to it.

Are you committed?

What a journey we had with the audiobook! In the audio lives an even bigger story! This audiobook, read by Emilie herself, is the first major revision to the Asylum story. After listening, I think it flows very well. Emilie’s voice is perfect for this story, and why shouldn’t it be? For those whose brains are more drawn to auditory information retention, you are in for a treat! The story is more refined in here, and perhaps more rewarding! There might even be a special song in its chapters. You may paint my portrait and buy some champagne, but buy and listen to me.
