Format: Paperback
To anyone this book would be an enthralling read. To anyone interested in any aspect of the paranormal this is a must read. I have always had a limited interest in the paranormal but as many other people are, I have always been sceptical about alleged sightings. This book however presents what seem to be very unbelievable events in a very believable way.
Being someone who has studied English Literature in the past, I noticed that this book reads very much like fiction, in the way it grabs your attention and I found it almost impossible to put it down. That only adds to the appeal of the book and I would say that it would be ideal for any book worm who fancies reading something a little different from the norm.
If you get the chance whoever you are, then I would suggest you read this and prepare yourself to be amazed and convinced by the experiences of John Keel and all of the seemingly eccentric, but in my opinion, genuine witnesses he met along the way.
A real pleasure to read.

Having researched this subject for many years this book is a very good explanation of events. Although not much Mothman is mentioned, the reason is John Keel didn't experience the Mothman personally. This book reflects his experience in Point Pleasant, and he does it very well. I fully recommend the book, its the best documented sighting to date, and well worth a look...

I've been interested in the "mothman" stories/legend for a while and really enjoyed this book - couldn't put it down. Some of the language used is a bit dated and you can tell it was written pre today's more PC culture, but it's quite charming in the innocence of the accounts and descriptive style.
John Keel does not attempt to preach to the sceptics on the existence of UFOs and related phenomena, but rather leaves it to the reader to make up his/her own mind as to whether the truth is really out there.
An interesting read that will leave you wondering was that really a plane in the sky?

What can I say?! One of the most mind boggling and disturbing books on the subject of "UFOs" (or whatever they are) that I have ever read.
Mr Keel writes in an informal, chatty style as the weird events and horrors unfold. Witnesses to the terrors multiply alarmingly as the story develops. Whatever happened during that time in the late 1960s affected the lives of hundreds and, according to the evidence, still affects them today.

I got this book on the strength of the adverts for the movie that lined bus stops all over my home town. I was pleasantly surprised. The book starts off and sounds like it is going to be all rubbish and analysising, but after the first chapter the events of Point Pleasant makes this book really interesting and easy to read. I would recommend this to anyone whether they are into the paranormal or not. It is an excellent book. A must read and will open your eyes to the weirdness that really does go on on this planet!
I really want to see the film now but it isn't on anywhere. I'll have to wait to rent that!

I had heard a great deal in regards to this book over the years and finally took the plunge to purchase it recently. I have to say I was very surprised at just how matter of fact Keels is and that the phenomenon was more than just the sightings and incidents featuring the Mothman. It is a forensic and detailed examination of a variety of occurences covering most aspects of the paranormal and Keel has a very detached, factual slant to his writing which also surprised me.
A really great book which propels you to the tragic conclusion that occurs and the aftermath of the whole series of weird events. Highly recommended.

I bought this book after being intrigued by the movie of the same name. There was one particular scene that really spooked me and I wanted to understand more. John A. Keel was a respected UFO investigator and this is a comprehensive catalogue of eye witness statements. The Mothman is mentioned but the book concentrates more on UFO sightings. I do wish that Keel had been more discriminating about his eye witnesses. I suspect a number of them were either liars or mentally ill. One man in particular claimed to have made contact with an alien who then took him time-travelling to different planets in his spaceship. From Keel's narrative it is difficult to tell whether he believes the man but then he mentions that there were many witnesses to a luminous object floating above the guy's house. Another possible crackpot is "Princess Moon Own" an extra-terrestrial who was interviewed on a radio show. The Men-In-Black make many appearances and Keel records many accounts of UFO witnesses who have have recieved strange visits from odd looking people. Some of these witnesses seem incredibly gullible, including one woman who took a tablet given to her by a visiting "alien". The tablet made her extremely ill and she had no idea what was in it. Strangely she refused to fill in a questionairre about the incident stating something like "I'm not that stupid" - really?? Keel's writing style is relaxed and very engaging and this is an interesting book. I liked the way he sends up the lack of success of his own novels, he also notes that some of the aliens adopt the names of characters from his books. It seems that he shook up those in authority enough for them to tap his phone, something confirmed by the phone company.Read more ›
