    In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles (micro-robots) has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.

    Overall

    George Wilson (the reader) must drool more than my 4 month old daughter. Geesus! He made me sick after the first three sentences. Be forewarned that at the end of about every three sentences, the reader slurps, swallows, and slurps again. You'd think a best selling author could keep his reader from what sounds like eating corn on the cob while doing the performance. I can just see the guy, jowls flopping, waddle quivering, foaming lips - and a pool of saliva gathering on the desktop and dripping off the microphone. He all but destroyed any value. Be sure to towel off after listening to this book.

    "Rest your eyes, and listen here....I'm Rod Serling, and this is The Zero Hour." From 1972 to 1974, The Zero Hour brought potent thrillers to the radio waves, edge-of-your-seat original radio dramas from best-selling mystery novels, featuring stars from radio's Golden Age and popular television personalities. Rest your eyes and experience a provocative episode from this legendary radio program.

    Overall

    After buying the "Zero Hour 1," I quickly bought five more. They are absolutely perfect for a long road-trip. Much more entertaining than a simple audio book (now that I've become so accustomed to them over the past five years) these episodes are a great change of pace. They are made for radio, and the acting is superb (all the old TV and movie stars you've grown up with). Content-wise, sure they're a little dated, but imagine a twilightzonesque sense of irony and surprise, packaged in an hour and forty minute stage production that kicks most modern murder mystery's butt. And man, is it ever great to hear Rod do an introduction one more time. Some episodes are stronger than others but each is fun. You won't be disappointed taking a chance on two or three of these mini-masterpieces.
