Most Helpful Customer Reviews

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By G. Peacock on 1 Oct 2009
Format: Hardcover
As the title suggests, this book brings together a number of accounts given by individuals, each who claim to have experienced an alien encounter. While some of the accounts are quite attention-grabbing, they make up only a small number of the total. A majority of the stories are unnecessary and could be classed as "filler" - the events which occur in many of them are too similar to those in others. This makes the book extremely repetitive and longer than required.

Quite an interesting read, not boring. Slightly disappointing as had already read some of the incidents mentioned in other publications.

It's books like this that make you believe that there must be some truth behind the UFO sightings. Rupert Matthews's research is exhaustive and his analysis of famous encounters, such as Roswell and the Hills on Highway 3 gives a degree of credibility to these incidents that I've struggled to find in previous accounts.
