I've read barely 7 eBooks and I've only finished other Twilight Zone Radio Dramas audiobooks. I'll rank this number 3.
Well one part made my heart jump, I won't spoil it for prospective listeners but it was telling of the style of the drama, how reached it's goal in such a slow way that you didn't know you were there even when you reached it. It was a moment when the drama decided not to be slow.
This is a drama so it features the voice of about 10 or so actors. The narrator Stacy Keach had about 5% talking time. I liked the actors, maybe I found one annoying but I think that was the point.
Yes, I won't give a spoiler by mentioning it here but a glass broke at that point as well.
This audiobook is in the average to good category of Twilight Zone Radio Dramas. I wouldn't recommend it as a first listen of Twilight Zone Radio Dramas as you might find it too slow (try To Serve Man on the Twilight Zone Radio Drama's website). Like all Twilight Zone Radio Drama's, it's best read in the night with the lights off. You're in luck if the moon decides to be out that night and casts some light through your window. That'll crown the effect :)
"old fashioned, but enjoyable"
This story is the audio version of a 1963 Twilight Zone episode; it's very dated in characterizations and setting, but it's a kind of creepy story nonetheless.
"True to the series"
I liked this episode. It was enjoyable, creepy and interesting. The Twilight Zone isn't a deep, thought provoking analysis of why people are on earth. This short was enjoyable for what it is - entertainment.
"Nice story for under a dollar."
No, i don't re-listen to audiobooks
I'm a big fan of dramatizations , so for the price and also it was a twilight zone . its worth the money
I was so excited to see an audible twilight zone! and at such a good price :) I think they did a great job
"just as it was on TV"
I have a copy of the original TV version to this. not one thing missed. even if I had not watched it...I would have been able to imagine it perfectly.
this is one of my favourites out of the Twilight zone. it serves o my to remind us of how busy our modern lives are and what it takes to realize the few good things and that we should hold on to them..no matter the circumstances .
"What a wonderful creation for the mind and imagination."
I, being a great lover of "RADIO DRAMA" This drama series by "The Twilight Zone gets a high FIVE STARS *****
Loved the story. It was very well read and worthy of the Twilight stories.
"Romantic and Paranormal "
Heard this on Valentines Day and enjoyed it. Good message. A fine Twilight Zone classic.
"Not that great."
Not that great. A big build up to an ending you can predict. Skip it.
"WOW! LOVE Twilight Zone!"
What can I say? I love, love, love, LOVE this type of thing. The actors did their parts SO well. I just love this show and I will continue to get these audio books for as long as they are made available!!!!!!
