Publisher's Summary

Dark and disturbing, this full-length study of the women in black mystery encompasses such issues as alien abductions, Mothman, strange and unearthly monsters, the secrets of alchemy, time-travel, and the dark domain of all things supernatural. Just like their creepy male counterparts, the women in black will stop at nothing to silence those who get too close to the truths behind the UFO phenomenon and paranormal activity. Dire warnings, intimidation, and menacing death threats are their cold-hearted calling-cards. Like the vampires of old, these black-clad, pale-faced women prefer to do their hunting by night. Their prey: us. Fearless and fearsome, they might just be your worst nightmare.

Stranger Things

This book organized the various explanations & theories regarding strange events with unnerving entities encountered throughout history. Are they government agents covering up troublesome events? Or perhaps extraterrestrials scouting humanity? Or are they remnants of an older race who are remembered in folklore & modern urban legends. Nick Redfern explores each of these possibilities & weighs their merits & shortcomings in explaining these unsettling encounters. The performance in reading is particularly strong in the 6th chapter where the possibility of folklore is covered. I enjoyed listening to this production, but do not wish to experience any of the subject matter in my own life to add verisimilitude.

Awful

I think it would have been a good book had the narrator been good. However, it was terrible. I couldn't even focus on story because I couldn't get past her poor story telling. Disappointed.

review

From a feminist perspective, I quite enjoyed reading accounts of female women in black! That said, the narration was probably the worst I've ever experienced via audible. the performer tried too hard to sound serious and came off sounding monotone and therefore harder to follow. additionally, some snippets of the recording repeated themselves multiple times in a row.

I've enjoyed listening to the stories very much. I'm especially drawn to the story about the man researching Robin hood. yes it's thought provoking.

Great Supernatural Read!

Nick Redfern compiles the most amazing stories of entities on the fringes of paranormal research. While the narrator is a little wooden, this book is definitely worth a listen.

Comprehensive

Redfern's look at women in black is nothing if not comprehensive. He looks far back into the phenomenon, before the WIB and MIB captured the collective imagination of the world following the famous Mothman case of 1966/67, to look at women in black (and sometimes white) as they relate to investigations of UFOs and other odd phenomenon, including the legend of King Arthur.
He also looks at other versions of the black clad woman, such as ghosts, banshees, witches, and spectral crones, to place the phenomenon in a wider context; ultimately coming to conclusions similar to those reached by Vallee and Keel that place the WIB, and therefore UFOs, in the paranormal rather than extra terrestrial realm.
All in all, a fantastic look at some lesser known tales crossing the width and breadth of strange phenomenon.
The narration, however, was not up to the content. The narrator often repeated lines, or sentences, especially as she neared the end of the book. Initially I thought some of these were simply subheadings, that were immediately followed by the quoted line. Redfern often uses a compelling quote from a section as a subhead. But it quickly became obvious that the narrator was simply repeating content. She also has a somewhat stilted delivery style that lead to a disjointed presentation. I would have enjoyed it more with a better, more fluid, narration.

Audio quality not the greatest

Love Nick's stuff but the narrator is very stiff and the quality of the recording feels cheap.

Good book, narrator not the greatest...

Another intriguing Nick Redfern book, great listen. The narrator wasn’t great though, she sounded like she might not have a ton of experience reading aloud or something. It was okay though overall.
