Point Pleasant, Skinwalker Ranch and now Loch Ness

Like always Redfern has found an angle that doesn't follow the main story. He explores the possibility that something more strange is going on at Loch Ness than just an undiscovered creature and I tend to agree. He tells stories of the Kelpies from Scottish folklore to Occult rituals by Aleister Crowley opening up portals to other dimensions. Redfern has an open mind and that is needed when tackling topics such as these.

I've read other books such as The Hunt for Skinwalker Ranch and The Mothman Prophecies and tend to think that a similar thing is going on here at Loch Ness. The similarities between The Kelpies, Skinwalkers, and Mothman are eerie. Strange creatures showing up and disappearing without leaving any physical evidence but people still claim they have seen them. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the strange and paranormal.

Interesting subject, mediocre delivery

Redfern comes through with his usual breathless yet always entertaining speculation. Don't walk into this expecting anything but goofy and lurid stories and you'll have a good time. 98% of the paranormal is lies, 1.5% is damned lies, .5% is a high strangeness that keeps you up at night. Guess which one this book falls into.

Narrator, however, couldn't be bothered to learn the proper pronunciation of words and even left in a botched take near the end of the recording. His publisher should give him a better showing than some clown they pulled from a low-rent casting agency.

Alternative Take on the Loch Ness Saga

This book is fascinating, but at the same time highly questionable in terms of the conclusions it reaches. Nick Redfern takes a look at various strands to the story of the Loch Ness Monster which have not been examined in any great depth by mainstream researchers. He explains the various paranormal aspects connected to this phenomenon over the years, which forms the central plank of his thesis that the monster appears to be a non-physical, supernatural entity. This argument stands in stark contrast to those who have speculated along biological lines. Having now listened to the book twice over, I cannot say that I have any clearer idea as to what witnesses are actually seeing. The mystery remains unsolved. The only annoying thing about this audiobook is that the American author mispronounces certain Scottish locations.
