Audible - Neil Peart Audio Books are free

Deal Link:
Price:
$0
Retailer:
audible.ca
This morning I was looking for a Neil Peart book that I had once read called 'The Masked Rider', about his bicycle trip through west Africa (yes, that Neil Peart, recently deceased drummer for RUSH). I was surprised to find that on audible ALL of his audio books are free [Audible-Neil Peart] . I have no idea if they have always been priced at $0, I see no mention of it being a special thing because of his recent death, or if the price will be increased at some point. I say get them while you can, the book I read was enjoyable, a thoughtful, at times blunt retelling of his adventure in Africa. I expect his further writings from a 2-wheeled (motorized) perspective will be just as enlightening.

Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road

"This bold narrative written by the drummer and lyricist for the band Rush shows how Peart tried to stay alive by staying on the move after the loss of his 19-year-old daughter and his wife. The book will be sold as part of the band's official merchandise during its 47-city American tour. 20 photos. 15 maps."

That one looks really good. Thanks op!

In light of Neil Peart’s passing, and in honor of his life and contributions to the world of audio, Audible is offering this work at no cost* through January 28th, 2020.

The story behind his books. What a great talent we lost, R.I.P.

OK - is this just a ploy to get us all hooked on the Audible app? I was hoping for mp3 downloads. I use an old mp3 player for audio books.

Stupid question... but how do I actually download it? When I click on it, I only have a link to sample it or add to wish list

Ploy or not its worth getting a trial membership and downloading his books. If you really are stuck on MP3 google "openaudible" which will convert your books to MP3.

It looks fine to me. This is from my Audible app, signed on to audible.ca after searching for the author "Neil Peart" in the store:

Thanks. Picked up all the free titles. I haven't read any of his books but love their music.
