Finalist 2007 Audie Award for Audio Drama

A hulking freighter waits at a darkened pier.

Aboard, filmmaker Carl Denham prepares for a strange voyage to a distant island… an island where he hopes to make the most exciting movie of all time.

First mate Jack Driscoll has concerns about the journey—concerns that only grow deeper when Denham talks a down-on-her-luck beauty named Ann Darrow into joining them.

And what waits for them at the end of the journey? More danger and excitement than any of the three could have imagined.

For what waits at the end of the journey is… Kong.

Join the showman, the sailor, the blonde, and the beast for one of the greatest adventures of all time, as the actors of Full Cast Audio sweep you into the pulse-pounding epic of King Kong, Eighth Wonder of the World!

“A complete, heart-pounding, theatrical experience”
— Large Print Reviews

“[A] unique audio experience—harkens back to the golden age of radio in its style and scope. You feel the heat of the jungle coming through the microphone!”
— Bennet Pomerantz, Audioworld

“Full Cast Audio has really perfected their style… I marveled at the expert production. The skillful acting, the flawless editing, and the classic story make this a title not to be missed.”
— SFFAudio Mar 2006

“With Peter Jackson remaking the film this past winter, other media were sure to follow in producing their own versions of the classic tale King Kong. But of course, few can do it up like Full Cast Audio… With a great story and a great cast, this production will definitely be among personal favorites this year.”
— Curled Up With A Good Book Mar 2006

Praise for the print version of King Kong:

“A fine job of respecting Cooper’s pre-WWII idioms while picking up the pace for a contemporary audience. The result is a book that seems genuine and uncontrived, even as it’s timed to coincide with another cinematic remake (Peter Jackson’s movie hits theaters in December) of the King Kong story.”
— Publisher’s Weekly Nov 2005
