Audible Releases a Free Audiobook of ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’

“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” has become one of the most beloved short stories written by humorist James Thurber.

The story follows Walter Mitty “who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action.” Ben Stiller served as both the director and lead actor for a film adaptation that will be released on Christmas Day.

To promote his movie, Stiller sat with Audible for an interview and recorded himself reading the Thurber tale. Follow this link to download the unabridged audiobook for free. What do you think? (via USA Today)
