Linda Godfrey presents an in-depth examination and overview of her decades long investigations into the mysterious upright canine-like beings known as dog men. From the beginnings of the Beast of Bray Road, to hairy hoaxes and lycans, Godfrey steadfastly leads us through the various witness encounters and reported sightings that have stood the test of time.
Godfrey's signature word-play and prose provides a perfect blend of edge of your seat grip and good humour. The reports are neatly filed and sorted into their relevant chapters and help present a fuller picture of the many overlapping angles of the investigation. She wholeheartedly admits that there is no definitive conclusion to make, but the book just like the stories offers enough intrigue to be of interest to the layman and sceptic as well as those more cryptidly inclined.
I cannot think of anything I didn't like about this book. I have found it hard to put down since picking it up.
If you have an interest in cryptids and prefer the grounded approach of an experienced journalist, then you will find the contents of Godfrey's books refreshing. The same goes if you want to research the topic from a sceptical point of view - Godfrey presents encounters and evidence with equal neutrality and only asks that you read with an open mind. A great starting point for those with just a mild interest, and a familiar and reliable friend to those well versed in the subject.
It was entertaining and somewhat educational, well reasearched and written. it covered all aspect from true encounters to pranksters and jokes. If you have an interest in wolves, real or supernatrural then this is the book to read.
Made my hair stand on end reading of peoples bizarre experiences as quoted in the book. Modern America must be one of the scariest places to live in. It would seem that fact really is stranger then fiction and the quoted incidents make Hollywood horror movies tame by comparison.
A good book compiling peoples experiences of seeing something that shouldn't exist. Not sure it made me believe but the first hand experiences are certainly interesting food for thought. If you like this kind of topic then you will enjoy this book.
An easy yet informative read, with many crossovers into other areas of both Parapsychology and Cryptozoology, this book is a must have for those with an interest in the Weird. Linda's writing style is quirky and informative, and by the end of the book you are left wondering if there is indeed something going on in both the wilds of the USA and beyond. Indeed, it is rare for me to have that sad twang of disappointment when reaching the final page of a book these days, but even though this work is surprisingly long and intelligently structured, I would have happily kept reading long after the back cover.
