Format: Paperback
The Uninvited brings a studied and methodical aproach to an interesting and, at times, bizzare subject, alien abduction. He writes with an obvious profound knowledge of the area with the discipline of the serious researcher, letting the data lead to the conclusion, rather than the reverse - a rare trait in this subject. He brings to the subject the ability to search the material, without trying to fit it to an allready formulated theory, for the revelant facts. In this he is reminiscent of Timothy Good, openly stating and anylising the facts, while not letting imagination take the lead. Pope also avoids the more fanciful theories of UFOlogy and Abdution theorists, which can only help a subject full of imaginative ramblings. I thoroughly enjoyed The Uninvited and highly recomend it to anyone with a healthy, yet questioning down to earth attitude to the Abduction phenomena, as well as the study of UFO's and related subjects generaly.

Format: Hardcover
Nick Pope's "The Uninvited" - apart from having a great title - is an excellent overview of the abduction phenomenon and especially good as a primer for those with little knowledge of the subject outside the occasional lightweight History or Science Channel TV documentary. It's intelligent, deeply considered and contains a lot of original source material investigated by the author which you won't find anywhere else.

Pope first became acquainted with the abduction issue after being parachuted into the MOD's UFO desk job in 1991 and facing the responsibility of responding to numerous letters received from people all over the UK reporting UFO sightings and accompanied by the usual missing time episodes, disorientation, partial memories and odd body scarring. To his credit, he got out into the field and investigated many of these cases personally, only to discover the reporters to be on the whole responsible, level-headed and functional members of society in no way welcoming any publicity or exposure, just wanting to know what had happened to them. Pope gradually became persuaded by the near-identical narratives and markers in all these cases that this was some kind of real phenomenon, and decided to study the subject.

The book is in two parts, well-organised and written in a highly readable, literate style spiced with frequent good-natured humour. Nick pushes no particular agenda but looks at all the evidence in the round. He investigated individual cases, read extensively on the subject and took the trouble to contact and interview both abductees and prominent researchers.

Im not very good at this stuff but always use the reviews to decide what to buy. Bare with me. (o:
Firstly im not sure about mister one stars review. Being a loony myself i have never reported being abducted by aliens. Abductees though are rarely anything but normal and are always confused by their experiences. But you know this already.
The Uninvited is an excelent book for anyone interested in ufos, aliens, and the paranormal. And is in a class of its own when compared to Open Skies, Closed minds.
I think that most people who have already read into this subject will be glad to hear that Pope only makes breif referances towards the contactees and does not delve too deeply into the famous abductees.
Most of the rest of the book is taken up by cases of abduction and alien encounter not yet seen before. All in all this is a good alround read.
What attracts me to this book most of all is that the witness acounts often involve a good degree of high strangeness which is refreshing and makes the book differ to most others. I expect that most other authors and investigaters stay away from the oz effect because it takes credibility away from the encounters themselves and the reliability of the abductees is already under enough doubt.
If you are interested in the subject i highly recommend this book!
If you are interested in the more surreal aspects of the paranormal then i point you in the direction of John Keel, famed author of the mothman prophesies. The book is not like the film. Our haunted planet is my top favourite book!
Blessings

Format: Hardcover
Nick's second book on UFO's focus's in on the specific subject of 'the visitors'. Again it is a well presented report on plausible cases of encounters with extraterrestrial around the world. I'm sure that there is far more alarming fact and truth in the encounters, than fiction. Another must for anyone interested in Alien interaction with the Earth.

Format: Hardcover
I confess I got this in a charity shop for 50p and it is now in a bag to go back to them, at least it may help the charity...
I accept the book was written several years ago but it does show its age; ufology must have moved on a lot as so much is not included.
I found the book tedious and not terribly well written. Too much speculation by the author who clearly shows a lack of knowledge of the history of the subject he is writing about. I quickly found myself scanning paragraphs and then pages. I think I eventually found one chapter that held my interest but the feeling grew that I was not going to find any signs of intelligence...
It could probably be revised and updated by Mr Pope who over the last many years will hopefully have learnt more in terms of his subject and in his general education. Can't recommend this book, but it is probably out of print anyway.
