I have to say that despite the previous reviews that panned this book, I really enjoyed listening to it. I retract that, I actually didn't like listening to it, because of the narrator. he almost ruined it for me. but it was an interesting read. It did have a mess-load of concepts all mushed into one story: aliens, the multiverse, ancient ruins, portals, political conspiracy, reincarnation, spirit possession, slavery, the end of days, you name it. So much so, that I almost got lost in the soup myself, but I replayed some of the passages and it pulled all together for me by the end. Having recently accepted my agnosticism (?), I came away believing in nothing and everything. Aliens, yeah I can believe it, dragons, ghosts, bigfoot, fairies, yeah them too (via the stargate/multiverse theory, of course ). It would be cool, if it were all true.
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.
