First of all I want to say I love that the author has signed my book. So I want to send a thank you his way!

So this book... Wow! It was kind of mind blowing. It was a very intriguing and fascinating read that I read quickly in less than a day. I was surprised myself when I found myself unable to stop reading and before I knew it the story was over.

An Abduction Revelation is based on true events of the life of Thomas L. Hay. The first thing I noticed about this book was how much I loved the writ

The wife thinks it will make the Big Screen. A blend of Total Recall with Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Thomas L. Hay’s early years describe just another average guy who was not good at sports, academic subjects and had no success with girls. But Hay is different; he was once abducted by aliens who changed him. After graduating high school, Hay joined the Navy where he became a Morse code communications specialist. On his last cruise on an aircraft carrier, the ship receives an SOS from a Russian trawler, the crew claiming they were attacked by aliens, but the story is hushed up.

I must admit I struggled a bit over this book. Not reading it. Reading it was easy as the author made the story relatable to people, often times reminiscing about his past as he built his way to the meat of the story. Consider it an appetizer portion to the main course. LOL No, what I struggled with was whether the writer intended to make this a ‘real’ memoir, such as creative nonfiction-ish or whether it was all meant to be an attractive fantasy/sci-fi imaginative tale.
The reason why I say thi

This is probably the strangest book I have ever read. Not just for its subject matter, but also how it came to my attention. My twitter profile includes the descriptor "book nerd" and I received a tweet suggesting this book as a "blend of reality and fiction". Since I love aliens and because I had never had a book pitched to me via twitter, I headed on over to the kobo site and downloaded it. The book I got was actually pretty good. Honestly, I would have given it four stars, but the edition I g ...more

The Best Non-Fictional Fiction I've Ever Read!

1. a person who abducts another person.

I've never technically read someone's memoirs before. Well, if I've read autobiographies, then I guess I can say Yes, but there's a slight difference. Isn't there? Well, Thomas J. Hay found me on another network for connecting. I love meeting new authors and reading their tales, but when you catch one that makes you question things- that's a good read. What I lo

I won this book in the goodreads giveaway.

This book was definitely an interesting and compelling read. The author makes an interesting story from a mix of real life events and fiction that he made up. He states in the introduction, whether you believe his story or parts of the story, is up to you and your imagination. It does sound like every corny sci-fi movie jammed into one book, but there are parts that do sound believable. That's just my opinion, it's really up to you and your interpretati

I received my first read book free from goodreads giveaway. I enjoyed this book very much it was so entertaining, and I love this style of writing. It feels like the author is sitting down with me telling this, I imagined a small group of friends listening to him tell us this story at an evening social while sipping on a glass of wine thinking is he for real? If this is the beginning of a space opera epic then by all means it will be great, but if this is just a short story I will take it for wh ...more

While reading this book, I struggled with the fact that the author repeatedly stated that this book was based on real life experiences. Although I struggled with this, I think this is what made the book so interesting. The author tells what at least appear to be very real tales in a memoir style about growing up in Missouri, peppered with strange sci-fi style "encounters" he continuously experienced. The book left me confused, and giggling all the way through. I love the author's "voice" and am ...more

This book is about an average person with an almost unbelievable story to tell, a story that involves abduction by aliens.

Hay lived a rather normal life. He joined the Navy after high school, becoming a radioman, and getting very good at sending Morse Code. After the Navy, he married Claudia, and settled down to a normal life, except for the part about being abducted by aliens. With no prior warning, one night Claudia asks for a divorce (at the

Right off, I've never been a real SciFi lover. I like a little reality or possibility of reality in my reading. But I went ahead and found I enjoyed the descriptions the author gave. It gives the reader a sense that you can picture the people and the places. As the pages are turned, I kept getting the feeling, is this fact or fiction. I just wasn't sure. I know that it has a basis from true happenings in the author's life but I was just skeptical. I have to say, the book wasn't an easy read jus ...more

I received a free copy of this book for my honest review. I haven't read a lot of sci-fi books in the past, but I was open minded to the topic of alien abductions, and existence of other life forms in our galaxy. This book is written in a style of a memoir, but I have decided that it is likely a work of fiction, despite the author's insistence that it is based on true events. Since we are not presented with proof arguing for or against aliens, then either interpretation is not right or wrong, it ...more

Thomas Hay's “An Abduction Revelation: The Comeback Kid Returns” is a different kind of memoir, one that leaves the reader wondering if the story is the product of an intriguing and creative writer, or did it actually occur somewhere in time and space, another dimension, or a galaxy long ago and far away.

With a quick turn of phrase, excellent command of visual imagery, and quirky metaphor
the author recounts specific events from his life’s journey spanning the d

In 'An Abduction Revelation', Thomas Hay retells the story of his life - in itself an interesting, and at times entertaining read. Another reviewer has described the writing style as 'conversational'. I would agree with that. It's a style which works much more often than not.
Anyway, woven into this, his second book, is a bizarre tale of recurring alien abductions.
Mercifully we're spared the usual abduction yarn, where the Earthling undergoes medical experiments, before mating with some big-bre

Thomas L. Hay’s “An Abduction Revelation” is a highly entertaining memoir. Hay describes being abducted as a teenager, then later during his first marriage and honeymoon. Since it’s a memoir, Hay relates growing up in Missouri with many warm and comic details. I grew curious as to when we’d return to the abduction information, but it turns out that much of the personal narrative have a rhyme and reason and later tie in with the abductions. There’s a particularly intriguing section with Hay falli ...more

I enjoyed reading this book, Tom has a friendly and engaging writing style and he could almost be in the room talking to you.
It is interesting to see how songs connected Tom’s life together and he tells a unique, intriguing and sometimes tragic tale about his life and the abductions. I was a little surprised about Tom’s ‘tom cat’ antics but there is a reason for this and you will have to read this book to understand. Whether these memoirs are truth or fiction is another matter but if the reader

An Abduction Revelation has very interesting premise regarding UFO's and aliens. I didn't read his first book "The Comeback Kid", and I was worried that I would be lost, Abduction Revelation can stand on its own. I read the whole book, from cover to cover, in one day. I was unable to put it down. Not to give any spoilers, but if I disbelieve his story, I would not have an open mind to others beyond our world. To believe in his story I am extremely worried of the outcome for our present day world ...more

Thomas L. Hay's "An Abduction Revelation: The Comeback Kid Returns" is an interesting tale. You can read "The Comeback Kid: the memoirs of Thomas L. Hay" first, but I did not and it did not take away from my reading of this tale. It's so hard to write about this and not give anything away, but I will tell you that it is a page-turner and it has some great twists and turns. Could be the next "X-Files" movie easily. The summary says it's a "blend of Total Recall and Close Encounters of the Third K ...more

This is a very stylish novella of a man's abduction by aliens; or was he? The author, Thomas Hay, writes the story as it happened to him; or did it? The premise is that our government has secretly covered up the aliens existence, while they go about abducting and altering human beings. While Mr. Hay claims there are some "true life experiences" in his tale, his fiction displays a very unique sense of humor. Cleverly written, and fun to read, An Abduction Revelation, should be on everyone's readi ...more

Get ready for unbelievable ride!!!
I found this book to be one of amazement and adventure, Tom has a very easy way of telling stories to make the readers like they are living the event. I am giving you fair warning to get ready to test your belief in abductions and government cover ups of aliens existing in our world. An Abduction Revelation was a wild experience in my reading adventure. A great book for everyone.
I was given this book in exchange for my honest review.

The Comeback Kid....

Nice it fact or fiction can't tell. Enjoyed reading it. Would probably buy the sequal. It brings up the question...if you were one of those abducted would you really want to know? Me probably not happy in my ignorance.
