On a quiet fall evening in the small, peaceful town of Mill Valley, California, Dr. Miles Bennell discovers an insidious, horrifying plot. Silently, subtly, almost imperceptibly, alien life-forms are taking over the bodies and minds of his neighbors, his friends, his family, the woman he loves, and the world as he knows it.

The title grabbed my interest with a vague resonance of long ago either having seen the movie or read the book, but at the very least knowing of it being an iconic tale among those that fertilized the mind of a young Stephen King. The narration sample sold me and thanks to the reader's enjoyable style, tone, and pacing made the listening a really fun ride.
