Description

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-the world as he knows it. Miles knows the invasion is linked to the mysterious seed pods that have been turning up everywhere-and the pod people are spreading fast.

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(R) and Audie(R) Award winner, and concludes with the narrator's insider reminiscences of his father's work on the film.
