Audible Editor Reviews

Seven Days in May is a full-cast stage production of a screenplay and novel by the same name. Filled with suspense and political intrigue, the play follows a military coup conspiracy being carried about by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. After learning about the cabal, the president must react quickly as he faces pressure from the Soviet Union and his innermost circle. Performances by Edward Asner and Fred Thompson perfectly convey the gravity of this high-stakes conflict. Both men make two things clear: This isn't just politics; this is a matter of life and death.

    "Respectable Adaption Of A Classic Thriller"
    Where does Seven Days in May (Dramatized) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Given that this is an audio drama as opposed to a reading, it doesn't seem like they belong on the same scale. Apples and Oranges.


    What does Edward Asner and Fred Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The actors do a good job when it comes to the main characters. I can't say that I got anything out of this I wouldn't have got from reading the book, because this is just an 1 3/4 hour length abridgement of a 350 page book. It's good for what it is.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really. Some of the added jokes were funny. I don't recall them in the film.


    Any additional comments?

    Personally, I think the film version was better, especially in the final confrontation. That said, I don't regret buying Seven Days, it was worth the listen.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Seven Days in May (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?

    I am a huge fan of LA theaterworks. All their plays are riveting and incredibly well done including post-production.
