Publisher's Summary

This meticulously researched and thrilling exploration of the otherworldly will challenge your idea of reality. Mysterious wolf-people, sentient mists, and UFOs....

If you've ever heard a curious bump in the night, caught a glimpse of a strange-looking someone (or something) out of the corner of your eye, or seen an unusual craft dart across the sky before it vanished without a trace, there's only one person to call: Linda S. Godfrey. An expert in strange creatures and lore, she has offered reporting on bigfoots, werewolves, strange energy forms, and other bizarre beings for years.

Godfrey will enthrall even skeptics as she leads you through the mystical, legendary, and scientific angles of these creatures and the myths that surround them. In this audiobook, you will encounter first-hand testimony of a terrifying transformation from woman to beast (during a church service, no less); the Lost Lizard People of Los Angeles; a growling, phantom-like home invader; wolfmen who walk on two legs; and people stalked by invisible predators.

Delivering a broad mix of modern-day and historical sightings, and supported by Godfrey's interviews with eyewitnesses, Monsters Among Us is a must-listen for anyone hunting for the real accounts behind their childhood campfire stories.

A must for Godfrey fans!

Any additional comments?

I don't know why this has gotten such low reviews. This is a good book and the narration is just fine. Since reading "American Monsters," I've tried to read all of her work that I can get my hands on. I've been waiting for "Monsters Among Us" to come to Audible and I was not disappointed. There are some very interesting personal encounters in this book and if you are into Cryptozoology, the paranormal, or the supernatural, you will like this book.

Tedious, Long & too Much Discussion


I normally love these kinds of books, especially the witness stories of their encounters. While this book is well researched, the constant discussions of what things relate to bog the book down. The fact sheets after each encounter were undoubtedly included to appeal to the skeptics. This book is best for a newbie, looking to learn about the unknown. I personally prefer books where the focus is on the encounters themselves, without doctoral dissertations. They took all the fun out of what could've been a great book. A better example are the works of Lyle Blackburn. He includes the stories, extensive research, yet never become boring. They are hard to put down. Not this book. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audio book. Narration was rite as well. It often put me to sleep and was hard to finish.

Stories you haven't already heard a hundred times

I enjoyed the entire book. If you take these people for their word these accounts give a different narrative than the old one being pounded down our throat.

interesting- look over your shoulder

interesting read. Fascinating how many of the stories/events had common threads. It made me feel like I should look over my shoulder when I go out at night.

left wanting...

story: the author writes like someone trying desperately to appear well versed in the subject and "Professional". It just makes me think of some kid playing doctor who believes if they just throw in a few important sounding words that they really will be a doctor.
facts: a few stories of first hand accounts that are not presented with information that can make them seem believable or possible. they are "summarized" in some fake fact sheet "date: sometime in 1975, place: maybe Oregon or maybe Florida, witness: my crazy uncle who drinks allot, etc" I am not saying that any of the stories in this book are not true and I hate to bad mouth anyone...but, the stories are not discussed in much detail other then what the origional person saw and what the author thinks...slightly. I've read a few books that fall in this category and some of them have had stories that you knew were just total B.S. but they still were filled with others that dug deep into the lore and possibilities. This book just didnt do it for me and maybe it works for you but it's a big HELL NO if your looking for my recommendation

Werewolves. Lots and lots of werewolves.

It seems that just about every story was somebody stating they saw a werewolf, dogman, thing with fur... and some discussion on where they may come from or hide out.

things that go bump in the night.

Great real life encounters of supernatural dogs, will have you looking at mans best friend differently. I am a first time reader of Linda S Godfrey and she does an amazing job telling the audience of what she have witnessed. Bad news is...the monsters in the book are ALL werewolf themed, with a title like "Monsters among us" you think she would mean all types of monsters not just one.

Needs better narrator. many words mis- pronounced.

Wish it was read with a little more emotion. The narrator was not family with the subject matter.
it sounded like a report instead of a book.

Just what I wanted!

I really enjoyed this book and was actually sad to complete it. I will be looking up the author in the hopes of more books on this subject or similar subjects. The narrator was soothing and easy to listen to. Great job!

Excellent analysis and well read

Excellent analysis by author has me buying her her other works now. She is methodical, professional, complete on giving both possible mundane reasons as well as open minded to new thought processes yet she also can keep it entertaining. There isn't a dry part to this work of hers.
The narrator did an excellent job and I will be watching out for her works on other authors as well. She kept the tempo on hood speed, was able to make me feel like the author was talking directly to me.
