Tom Hiddleston Narrates Audiobook of High Rise [AUDIO]

Tom Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing in High Rise.

Tom Hiddleston stars in the upcoming film adaptation of the novel High Rise by J.G. Ballard, which he is also narrating for a release ahead of the upcoming film, according to

The novel was first published in 1975 and tells a dystopian tale of life in a modern high rise as it falls into chaos.

The film stars Luke Evans, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, and Elisabeth Moss alongside Hiddleston. It was directed by Ben Wheatley.

“I spent last summer holed up as Dr. Laing on the 25th floor of the ‘High Rise’, as brought to life on film by Ben Wheatley and Amy Jump,” Tom Hiddleston said to DigitalSpy. The book was always, necessarily, our corner-stone. Ahead of the release of the film, it was great to go back to J. G. Ballard’s original text and to read it aloud. Ballard was prescient about so many things: our seduction by (and reliance on) technology; our attempted colonisation of the sky, and his particular, distinguishing implication that modern civilisation is perhaps only a few neighbourly disagreements away from collapse and chaos”.

The audio book of High-Rise, narrated by Tom Hiddleston, is available for pre-order beginning March 26.

“We are very excited to have Tom on board as narrator for High Rise,” Laurence Howell, the Director of Content at said. “He’s a widely respected and hugely popular name, and with the film adaptation set to be a big hit this autumn, Tom was the perfect person to bring the audiobook to life. We’re thrilled with the results and hope our listeners will be too.”
