Eerily familiar and similar to the television version, yet hauntingly different and unique, Fairman's story is wonderful by itself.

This first ever audio dramatization of "People Are Alike All Over" is prefaced by introductory comments about the author, the story, and the Twilight Zone television show. Enhanced with music and sound effects this REB Audio Book was adapted, produced and performed for this presentation by Bill Mills.
If I had paid more, I would be mad. A fifth of it was commentary, a compare & contrast with the television episode.
