  • I'm usually a big fan of Mezrich's books, but this one just didn't do it for me. It felt like there wasn't nearly enough content to warrant a full book. Honestly, it could have easily been condensed into a 45-minute podcast.
  • The majority of the book, around 90%, focuses on the author himself, which isn't necessarily bad or unengaging. However, I was under the impression that this book would primarily delve into UFOs, which only plays a minor role. It became tedious to listen to the author discussing his family vacation, followed by brief mentions of animal mutilations, and then returning to mundane topics. If you're seeking a book that truly delves into UFOs, aliens, or related areas, you can safely skip this one.
  • This audiobook offers fascinating glimpses into the mysterious realm of unexplained phenomena, such as animal mutilation and UFO sightings. It manages to be highly entertaining, while also leaving plenty of intriguing questions lingering in the mind.
  • I really liked this story and your other books. It's interesting that you didn't appear in the movies that were adapted from your stories, so why did you decide to narrate this audiobook? It would be better to hire a professional narrator to add a special touch to the already great story.
  • Don't waste your time and money on this one. Instead, invest in more credible research. The author of this book can't even get the basic declassified information about Roswell right. It's clear that the author did very little, if any, research. Books like this are the exact reason why the field of ufology is not taken seriously.
  • I have a major gripe with the ending of this book, it feels like being left high and dry by a partner who abruptly leaves. It's a complete betrayal of what the rest of the book was building up to, and it really makes me question the credibility of the content. I can't believe that the person who this book is centered around actually approved of this ending, as it contradicts the supposed goal of providing scientific analysis of the subject matter. Despite the disappointing ending, which is the sole reason for my two-star rating, the book is excellently presented, written, and narrated. I haven't had a chance to fact-check all the instances mentioned in it, but if they turn out to be true, it provides an intriguing perspective on the UFO phenomena and related topics.
