The possible existence of extraterrestrial life is a phenomenon that has sparked more debate, controversy, fascination, and passion than any in recent history.

Shelves: aliens
This is a decent look at an unexplained, at this time, phenomena that needs to have a real scientific examination to either prove or disprove it. And that is what Strieber is asking for in this book. He presents several cases of odd U.F.O. related material but does not categorically state that it is real or unreal. The sad part of the whole enchilada is that science has already "debunked" the whole U.F.O. thing and anyone who does look into is quickly discredited as a whack job. Oh well maybe so ...more

I read this way way back as a kid. It kind of scared my 15 year old mind as I wasn't as skeptical back then. Looking at it now, the claims are kind of silly. Regardless, it was entertaining to me at the time.

I would recommend checking this book out if you're looking for a somewhat creepy read. But be careful about taking it too seriously though.

"Be open minded, but not so much that your brain falls out."

I'd give it 3 stars for entertainment, but Whitley Strieber is a nut and it bothers me how

This book is divided into three parts.

The first part is an account of a recent and spectacular UFO sighting in August 1997 over Mexico City.

Part two examines what happens when a person comes into involuntary contact with an alien. These people face ridicule, are ostracized and many lose their careers. Just imagine telling your boss that you were whisked up to a spaceship last night and the aliens examined your body and put something up your nose. there is so much antagonism, probably born of f

If I had any doubts regading the existence of aliens before reading this book they've only been reinforced. The only confirmation I got with this book is the fact that I'm glad I didn't pay full price when it was first released. Not quite as boring as reading a chemistry textbook but not quite as exciting as reading the ceral box each morning.

I had very different expectations for this book. I found it tedious and unconvincing.

Presents evidence for the possibility of UFO's. Dry.

Read this a long time ago. From what I remember, I didn't see what the hard evidence was.
