Annotation:Starred Review. While Miles's patients start remarking about loved ones not seeming to be themselves, he merely chalks it up to paranoia. However, when he becomes witness to a distinct but subtle change in the personality of some townspeople, he and his friends realize something is afoot. Their fears are realized as they stumble upon faceless corpses and strange pods. But the pod people are spreading fast, and Miles is running out of places to hide and people to help him. Finney's classic tale of alien invasion is recreated anew with more terror than the book or the film. Tabori delivers a performance that will chill listeners with his intensity and sense of urgency. His lightly raspy and mature voice works perfectly through the first-person perspective of Miles. He captures the mood and adjusts his pitch, speed and tone accordingly. By the end of this production, listeners will believe they are listening to Miles himself and not just some narrator. A brief interview with Tabori at the end reveals that he's the son of Don Siegel, who directed the original 1957 film Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

People’s everyday lives are profoundly emotional. Starting from the most frequent emotion, joy, there are various emotions that exists among humans such as love, gratitude, embarrassment, and fear. Emotions are so profound in our society that sometimes it defines a human being. If somebody possesses a conspicuous emotion of happiness, for example, people often define him or her as a positive person. In contrast, people deprived of emotions are defined as sociopaths and psychopaths. In the Jack Finney’s novel The Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, aliens plant pods fall from space, each capable of duplicating each human, replacing them. Each pod can assimilate physical characteristics, memories, and personalities of each sleeping person placed near it, however, these aliens lack human emotion. Finney present aliens as representing lack of emotion through contrasts and symbolization, showing that emotion is essential to human identity.
