    Inhaltsangabe

    Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Porpoise, written by Mark Haddon. 

    ‘I really am so very, very sorry about this,’ he says, in an oddly formal voice.... They strike the side of a grain silo. They are travelling at 70 miles per hour.

    A newborn baby is the sole survivor of a terrifying plane crash.

    She is raised in wealthy isolation by an overprotective father. She knows nothing of the rumours about a beautiful young woman, hidden from the world.

    When a suitor visits, he understands far more than he should. Forced to run for his life, he escapes aboard The Porpoise, an assassin on his tail.... 

    So begins a wild adventure of a novel, damp with salt spray, blood and tears. A novel that leaps from the modern era to ancient times; a novel that soars, and sails, and burns long and bright; a novel that almost drowns in grief yet swims ashore; in which pirates rampage, a princess wins a wrestler’s hand, and ghost women with lampreys’ teeth drag a man to hell - and in which the members of a shattered family, adrift in a violent world, journey towards a place called home.
