Publisher's Summary

The visitors Whitley Strieber described in his best seller Communion have not gone away. They have remained to inhabit the former skeptic's new vision of a universe that is magnificent, mysterious, and fiercely alive. They were buried under denial and false assurance, but now they are emerging and are nothing less than agents of his transformation - and perhaps the transformation of our world. During the events described here and those he chronicled in Communion, Strieber underwent a battery of examinations, including a lie detector test, which he passed. All results indicate that his experiences were not caused by a known psychological or physiological disorder. This riveting account is read by veteran actor Roddy McDowall.

I'm Going Coo Coo For Whitley-Puffs

What did you love best about Transformation?

Strieber is an excellent writer, and his talent comes through in the narration. Further, the narration is absolutely perfect. You can listen for long hours without any strain or annoyance. Rarely do you get excellent prose married to excellent narration like you do in Transformation.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Transformation?

The frightening lack of any conclusion. The inability to come to any firm conclusion about these creatures and their "visits." This book leaves you wide-eyed, unsettled, and loading your gun.

What about Roddy McDowall’s performance did you like?

Oh, man, there are so few readers as skilled as McDowall. He brings Strieber's book to life perhaps BETTER than you could by reading the prose yourself. Perfect intonation. An accurate feel for the subject matter. Always emotionally invested in the work without becoming corny or melodramatic.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

These creatures are not simply physical. They are not simply good or evil. And they are not our friends nor are enemies, it seems.

Any additional comments?

BUY IT NOW. Very entertaining. Thoughtful, thought-provoking, and worth experiencing.

Amazing Truthful Encounters With Our Visitors

Great job Whitley, Thank you for coming forward, and telling us of your scary yet profound encounters with our Visitors. Everyone should read this, to understand that they are REAL. And, that they ARE here with us...and have been for a long time.

Therapeutic

I think Whitley writes his books very honestly. They may contain "flaws" or "incorrect" information, but it doesn't really matter. he demonstrates perfectly the struggles that experiencers must face to overcome their fears and work with the entities that have intruded their lives.

Good

It was good but I had hard time following story because I was too distracted by the narrators voice.
