"UFO stories from very credible people!"
What a great and informative book! I cannot recommend this strongly enough if you want UFO stories from very credible people.
Not really entertaining, just background noise on another road trip. It was like listening to one of those History Channel UFO programs but without the neato graphics and commercials. Not as compelling as The Mothman Prophecies but similar in nature. I didnt like that one either.
An interesting conceit for a book about UFOs and aliens. The author went to a UFO conference at MIT co-hosted by John Mack; as he talked to people during the breaks, at dinner, and so on, he took notes and put it all together as a kind of rumination on the truth or falsity of the phenomenon. What he ended up with is a kind of ethnography of the conference. He managed to talk to a lot of abductees and experts in the field, such as Linda Molton Howe and Budd Hopkins. He even followed up with further meetings well after the conference had ended. It was interesting way of putting together different points of view on the subject. Although the author had no personal experience with UFOs or aliens, he comes to a fairly nuanced and open-minded conclusion. I only wished it was longer!
The narrator is terrific. His intonation and way of talking sounds like it's from 50s, but somehow it was really well-suited to the material.
"Not what I expected"
Only 4 chapters long and really No storie line. I was very disappointed in the book . I thought it was going to be more like a movie but instead it was a documentary nothing like Close encounters of the third kind. The book was terrible if you are interested in this you get much more out of the movie and you get to see live footage of actual events that have taken place .
