Michael Crichton and John Bedford Lloyd make a great audio team. Crichton pits mainstream environmentalists against tree-hugging terrorists set on using high-tech machines and explosives to create "natural" disasters that will make the world take notice and fear global warming. When the heroes find themselves trapped in a glacier, Lloyd makes listeners feel their frigid straining to escape. When they're surrounded by lightning, listeners feel their hair-raising terror. When they face a tsunami, listeners see the wall of water approach. When they're tied to stakes by island cannibals, listeners feel their stomachs churn. Lloyd adds emotional layers to Crichton's characters and makes real what some would call science fiction. D.J.M. 2006 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
