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 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.
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!
I was "spooked" a bit by the beginning as the images were somewhat intense for me, but then the story really started up and I was hooked. I couldn't stop listening. A great adventure-conspiracy-thriller with tremendous potential for a sequel.
Truthfully, I didn't believe I would enjoy this book. I am not a big fan of Sci-fi, but since this book made it The Best of Audible list, I decided to give it a try. Am I ever glad I did. I finished the book in one weekend! I didn't want to stop listening...the story was fast-paced. It kept me guessing all the way to the end. Try this book. You won't be disappointed.
