Jack Finney – The Invasion of the Body Snatchers


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.

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 and Audie Award winner, and concludes with the narrator’s insider reminiscences of his father’s work on the film.

armband perplexing

the story takes place locally for me. In addition, it’s very somewhat from the movie versions.
