great story great plot listen to this in the dark

I really love this radio play. the story was very clever and very suspenseful. I'm serious, you should listen to this in the dark. It brings back all of the excitement and intensity of the old time radio plays but in a very modern context. I highly recommend this program.

Fun and Twiight Zone-ish

Entertaining science fiction with multiple narrators and sound effects. Not too creepy. Just the right amount of thrill and suspense.

Fun, Paranormal Drama

This was an entertaining drama about the staff of a radio station caught up in a otherworldly drama. Fantastic cast, great sound effects, good guys, bad guys and several twists and turns. Lots of fun and touching as well. I hope Audible does more of these.

Interesting ideas, uneven execution.

This mostly played out like a B grade radio drama. However, the third episode- the night in the desert - was like something else entirely- genuinely terrifying in parts. The skinwalker should have played a bigger part throughout, as the next episodes were quite weak by comparison. It was free and, overall, worth listening to.

Meh.

Great idea, decent storytelling, and interesting main characters. The flip-flopping of motivations and attitudes was horrible though. What could possibly have been the Bad Guy's motivation in either foiling the plan, _or_ in tipping off the good guys once they had succeeded? Why are the calm and collected characters suddenly in panic in one scene, and calm and controlled again in the next? Also, most of the sound effects seemed unpolished and subtracted from the experience rather than adding to it.

Quite good but with some cringe

I did like the atmosphere.
Mix between Stranger things and The Vast of Night.
Has a campfire story that could become an entire book.

I did not like the whyning of some characters and many interactions are forced and cringeful.

The main bad guys are underused.

Good listen

Good short story ,narration was good with being a full cast makes it that more interesting when your imagination takes over . all in all good book and I think more books should be narrated with a cast although some lone narrators are great at what they do.

Mystery and Adventure of the Third Kind.

Tower 57 was a delight. I loved it, and even though the end was spectacular I never wanted it to end. I was involved with the characters immediately and felt like I was in the room. I'm keeping it in my library because I know I'll enjoy it again. Wonderful story and superb enactment. Thanks for the hours of pleasure.
