As has been stated, this book has little in common with the movie, and though I loved the movie and would have liked a more focused examination of it, this book turned out ot be infinitely more riveting. This is no novel, it is a collection of observations expressed by a journalist with a literary style that is absolutely captivating, amusing, and simultaneously disturbing. Instead of shocking us with outrageous and overly colorful depictions of events, John Keel has an amazing ability to evoke the inherent eeriness in what might seem the most mundane interactions, which when carefully analyzed, provide profoundly unsettling conclusions. He does not force his interpretation of these events, but leaves the reader to make up his or her mind. If you want a book to capture your imagination for hour upon hour on end by a talented author with a wry wit and healthy amounts of both marvel and cynicism, you will listen to this book several times without any loss of interest.
