There are books of the same chemical composition as dynamite. The only difference is that a piece of dynamite explodes once, whereas a book explodes a thousand times. ― Yevgeny Zamyatin

  • ""That was no Martian, it's Hall..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    It's a masterful radio dramatization dating back to 1938. The radio play allegedly "stirred terror through the U.S." and "terrified the nation". The broadcast started with the introduction by Orson Welles: "We know now that in the early years of the twentieth century this world was being watched closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own." The broadcast went on followed by a weather report and interviews that were meant to make the dramatization sound realistic. Then there was a special news bulletin announcing that an object about 30 yards wide had fallen on a farm at Grovers Mill.
    What the news reporter saw next he described as "the most terrifying thing" he had ever witnessed...
    I was hooked by this true-to-life radio adaptation. The way the Martian invasion and its aftermath were reported, and the enactment of one of the few survivors were brilliant.

Abbie Brown's greatest hits:
  • Brave New World (Dramatized)

    "awesome"

    Overall

    As a teacher I am always looking for something interesting to do with the novels that we read in class. Many of my students have difficulty with Brave New World, so as a treat we listened to this version of BNW in class. The students loved it, some even admitted that listening to the novel helped them to understand the novel and now are actually reading it (and liking it).

This is a play on the human spirit and the morals of each come into focus on the lifeboat. EXCELLENT plot and keeps you glued to the entire performance. 5 STARS all the way and Alfred Hitchock who directed the movie version introduces the audio.
