Publisher's summary

Beneath the tranquil surface of a North Texas town, the future of the human race awaits....

After 40 years, members of the global conspiracy known only as the Project are finally nearing the completion of their plans. FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully alone have a glimpse of the nightmare that lies ahead for the rest of the world: an alien invasion fueled by the most devastating virus in human history. And only they know that the truth isn't out there anymore - it's already here.

Last few pages of book missing from audio

Would have rated this 5 stars but last few pages of story were cut out of this audio. Good thing I own the hard copy book or would not have been able to finish completely. How can they tape an audiobook without finishing the ending?

We need the full cast

The narrator is good at reading the book.

However, I consider that the full cast will do a fantastic performance.

It is the magic behind sound engineering that should be used.

Missing the end

Ends abruptly before the story concludses. I don't know how many pages are missing, but they are definitely missing.

Uncompleted Audiobook

The audiobook ends with like 8 more pages left. So very strange, that’s why I gave it 4 stars.

Mulder gets his evidence

The story is the movie plot. The Narration is not evocative of the characters though well read.

Ever been to Dallas?

The ridiculous mistakes about Dallas in this book ruin the whole thing for me, as a Dallas native. First of all, the nearest sand dune is about 400 miles west at Monahans park. The dirt in Dallas is black clay with white chalky streaks, not red. Not a sign of sage or mesquite. There are no mountains for several hundred miles. The only view of the skyline is from miles and miles of expressways through suburbs, not desert landscapes.
You don’t have to go to Dallas to get this stuff right— just Google some stuff. Just sloppy.

abridged from the script, not a novelization

If you've seen the movie, there is no reason to listen to this production. nothing new is added to the story here.

4.25/5 Stars Fight the Future, The X-Files Book 7

Genre: scifi/fantasy/paranormal
Summary:
In north Texas, a group of boys stumble across a lot of old bones and something scarier. To cover it up, a mysterious government entity blows up a building. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully get swept up in the mix.

Additional Comments:
- This one is an adaptation of the movie, which I vaguely remember seeing.
- Now I feel like I need to track down this movie.
- The ending seemed abrupt.
- It has all the classic X-Files markings. Mulder’s in trouble. Scully’s in trouble. They end up traveling across the country and then the world several times in the pursuit of elusive truth.
- I do so love the conspiracy aspects, so the mysterious meetings and shady dealings done from posh places is a lot of fun.
- After hearing a lot of scifi and thriller stuff, I always count it a mark in a book’s favor if it can get a visceral reaction from me. That conversation by the Project people still had the chilling power to make my gut clench.

Conclusion:
It’s not as fun as one of the original X-Files stories because I remembered a good chunk of the story. Still, quality scifi stuff.

Suspenseful

Overall it was very suspenseful with a lot of action. The narrator was excellent and the storyline moved very well. I would have given it five stars if the ending wasn’t so poor and disappointing.

Sooo Good!

This book was so well written that Hollywood virtually used it as the script for the movie. They basically didn't change a thing. I felt like I had just finished watching the movie. I really enjoy this story.
