This classic 1955 thriller of the triumph of the human spirit over an invisible enemy inspired the acclaimed 1956 film, directed by Don Siegel and named one of Time magazine's 100 Best Films. Blackstone's edition is read by Don Siegel's son, actor-director Kristoffer Tabori, an Emmy and Audie Award winner, and concludes with the narrator's insider reminiscences of his father's work on the film.

AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
yes but not to everyone. the story is good. i know someone who could enjoy this story but because it is science fiction, he will never give it a try.
if you saw the movie the audiobook is great. but if you never saw the movie i think the book will be even better.
when the bady snatchers were in town waiting for the truck.
the book was well read, great voice, enjoyable reader!
many moments. moments when miles and rebecca were fighting to save their existance
i wish i never saw the movie. i do for some reason think the audiobook would be even better. but it was a great entertaining read.
the book was a little different than the movie. i liked the book better.
i don't want to be a spoiler in case some readers don't know the story tho.
I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
I found this book to be one of the exceptions to the rule that books are better than the film version. It was different to the film as it was simple and I found the ending disappointing. I preferred the ending in the film version.
Kristoffer played all the characters very well but I liked the main character the best. You can tell he envisioned the scene and channeled the character's emotions through the tone of his voice.
I never saw the movie but Im glad I heard this audio instead.
I've always loved this story, and the narrator does a fabulous job - he's just perfect for it. The interview at the end is interesting too :)
I've always loved the old black-and-white movie and thought it would be fun to read the book. I was not disappointed. A bonus interview at the end of this audio recording proved very interesting, too, as it speaks to both the book and that original movie.
I have seen the first two movies but the book as usual was so much better and actually expains whats happening. I have listened to alot of books and I really liked this one. Don't miss it.
