I got this book because I have listened to MOST of the Sci-fi books here since I have been a member for a long time.. Basically, I thought I was out of "good" Sci-fi to listen to for a while, but stumbled across the reviews on this one and decided to give it a try.
At first It seemed VERY slow, and I thought "Here's one I won't finish", but a friend said, "Make it through the first hour, it gets a LOT better!"
It got a LOT better!!! So much better that I spent 8 straight hours (all night, until 7 this morning) listening to the rest of it.
It's like the X-files meets every UFO Conspiracy theory ever produced, but the author pulls it off so well that you can give a nod to a "Conspiracy theory" as it passes by, without it damaging the story, in fact it adds more to it.
The Science and philosophy is More than excellent in some areas, but a bit weak in a few spots (Not enough to damage the story though).
I'm sure there will be a second book, now I just have to wait for it (I HATE that part ;).

This is the first time I have ever given any Audible book a five star rating. Strieber has written an extraordinarily well crafted story with a 5 star chill factor. Whether you believe in UFO’s or not, you will find this stunning story keeps your interest to the point that driving a car while listening to some scenes can be a dangerous to life and limb. Strieber is going to produce a motion picture based on this book. If he can get his writing on the screen as it comes across in the novel, it will be a mammoth hit. If you like action, suspense, terror (in places), excellent characterizations, and well choregraphed chaos, don't miss this one.
