Mystery & Suspense • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

East Coast grad students get recruited by a cutting-edge tech firm in Hawaii. They travel to Oahu for an interview and get snared in a jungle nightmare only Crichton could concoct. John Bedford Lloyd’s delivery is solid, but in some inexplicable way it fails to capture all the excitement and terror of the hapless victims, particularly when they enter extremis, which in this story is often beyond imagining. However, Lloyd compellingly voices the psychotic CEO at the heart of the horror. And one hears the cowardly, whining traitor of the group of victimized students with loathing right from the start. Female characters are well voiced and differentiated from the predominately male cast. Crichton’s fans and sci-fi junkies will love it.
