This book has its ups and downs. Interesting twist on the "little grey men" premise, the book leaves many plot holes awaiting resolution in a sequel. The villain is really "the man", so its interesting how the book ties together many of the conspiracy theories with a common theme.
I don't know, but if there are little grey men from outer space conducting experiments on us, could it be that they would be satisfied with a shot of our DNA? Since human beings can hardly live with each other in peace, I rather doubt we could tolerate billions of ugly aliens sharing our streets with us.

The 1st of the 11 hours sort of dragged on but once you're past the beggining of the book, it really takes off. Anyone who is interested (even mildly) in aliens/UFOs will find this book absolutely riveting.
SciFi crazy! Geek! Love my dog, Dylan! Was never a good reader, then I discovered Audible and topics that interested me. Generally SciFi, b
Man, The Grays is a terrific sci-fi story.
After I was done I just wanted more. More to learn about the Grays.
They did end up making some movies, but of course always read the books first.
At 60 years old with the heart of a kid. Today, I decided to actually post some reviews for the very first time. I have been using Audible for many years now. Maybe if you like my selections that means your into the same books as I am into and I will read your selections if that's possible now, to share someone else's book list?
The idea of the Grays being these super evolved human architects is a wicked concept. I'm a military man, so I was delighted to have a connection with that component in the book.
This is not the type of book I typically listen to/read but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very exciting and well acted. The narrator did a great job.
The book is a great story told with interesting dialog. If your interested in the subject I highly reccomend, very intertaining
I really dug this book and I highly recommend it. When I wasn't listening to it, I was thinking about it. There was no lull in the pacing. The imagery was very well written, and played out like cinema in my mind. But I SWEAR, if anyone tries to make a movie out of this one, I will "Stewie" slap their *$$!! I tried to watch the "Communion" movie online ('cuz I could find the audiobook/ebook) and I fell asleep on it, it was so dull. Despite classic Christopher Walken acting, it was poorly translated into a screenplay, even by Strieber, himself. I'd hate to see the same happen to this one. Anyway, "The Grays" was memorable, and left me wanting more of the story, but satisfied with the ending. Now I'm ready for "Hybrids." Altho Strieber's new book isn't noted as a sequel to this book, I hope it throws back to it.
The first half of the book was good...solid set up was excited to see where it would go. Unfortunately where it all went was nowhere...it was so disappointing. The action, the choices...there was a lot left on the table.
Rarely is an audiobook so well read. In fact this is less like a reading than a full cast brought to life by the singular audio performance of Stephen Lang; truly terrific. Really well written. Thank you Whitely; we want more!
