For the Term of his Natural Life is the official interactive iPad novel offering a unique experience. It is the story of a man wrongly accused of murder and robbery and sentenced to Tasmania "for the term of his natural life". Based on a classic novel, an intelligent and headstrong man is transformed to a hardened convict. But justice will not be held prisoner. Love gives him a reason to live; revenge drives him to escape. The internationally acclaimed mini-series is now one of several components of this interactive app.
What's New in Version 1.2
I love this app. I read/watched it quickly and was absorbed into the story. What I loved most about it was that it felt like a story experience I've never had before.
The story contains both text and video. You need to both read the chapters and watch the video to enjoy the app. I was engrossed in the sounds effects while reading, (for example - the waves of the ocean while reading a chapter which takes place at sea) and the depth of extra materials on the history of the era.
In many ways the app is suited to the way we consume media now. For example, when I watch a historical film, I also usually am on my phone looking up the historical time period, the characters in the story, and maps and other materials. I'm used to jumping between text, video, and then jumping on a new webpage. The experience of this app is like that. When I wanted to learn more about a character, or a time in the history of the book, I could easily find it. I also liked the balance of video and text. It is like living interactive history.
I'd love to see more movies based on novels get this treatment. When are you guys doing another App?
Fantastic interactive novel
I really enjoyed experiencing this app. It is jam packed with video, maps and other insightful tips that add to the novel and bring the story alive. I recommend anyone who enjoys historical fiction or nonfiction read this book!
This interactive e-book is very entertaining. It has a great story, photos to help picture the characters, and video to help have a even better visualization of the characters and the scenery of the story. Great price for such a great book.
