    1. I have never read an Abduction UFO study book before I picked this book up at a record shop on tour on the east coast this year It s been out for a long time and I remember what a splash it made upon its initial release I also used to listen to Strieber s radio show in Santa Cruz on AM while delivering pizza s around town on Saturday nights Communion was so much than i expected For one, Strieber is coming to this book as a writing talent so the book reads very eloquently, like that of a great f [...]


    2. On vacation in Martha s Vineyard, this book had me screaming in my sleep, nightly I had to stop reading it until the vacation was over Shall we say it touched a nerve


    3. Mike Miley told me of this book when it came out in 1987 I was suspicious, having known its author as the source of The Hunger and Wolfen, two decent horror movies based on novels by him This skepticism was reinforced shortly thereafter by the reading of a review of the book by science fiction writer Samuel Delany in The Nation Delany, at some length and with considerable heat, accused Strieber of fraud In consequence, I began to look for and read Strieber s novels, planning to obtain Communion [...]


    4. When my nephew was about ten years old, he insists he was visited by aliens He says he woke up in the middle of the night with a bright orb coming through his bedroom window Then nothing The next thing he remembers is being in his parents bedroom trying to wake them up to warn them but nothing would wake them Next morning, the foot of his bed and bedroom floor were drenched His mother asked him for an explanation and he told her the events of the previous night Naturally she didn t believe him a [...]


    5. Having personally witnessed 3 UFO sightings from the mid 60 s, to the last one in August of 1970, his story both reminds me and frightens me of how close I was to my 3rd UFO sighting Mom and I both saw the first 2 UFO s while dad was driving I spotted them and then asked mom if she saw it too, and she did The first one was near the cliffs actually hiding above them at times outside of Warm Springs, Oregon on a clear blue sky day It was silver and reflecting the sun We could see it very clearly T [...]


    6. I am almost tired of people reading this book expecting it to be 100% biographical in nature Streiber himself has been clear that he is not totaly sure what it is really about I always read it taking the visitors out of the equation and looking at Streibers subsequent examination of himself, and his life I also believe it is wrong for anyone to claim it to be total B.S as we have to face the one fact we can not prove it to be true or false This is the underlining problem for the hardcore believe [...]


    7. Did aliens abduct Whitley Streiber in 1984 Are the visitors as he calls them from another planet, another dimension, from somewhere deep in the human psyche And why are they here These are the questions Streiber raises in his book, probably the all time definitive book about alien abduction Interesting though the questions may be, unfortunately he doesn t provide many answers.The questions you will be asking yourself while reading it are along the lines of Is this guy totally crazy or a giganti [...]

    9. Sometimes you read a book that changes your life Was it a change for the better or worse I almost hear you cry I don t knowI read this book many years ago at the tender age of 21 The thing that initially drew me to it was the cover arte typical alien headI devour the book in a couple of days and during the read I got what can only be described as a FlashbackSuddenly I remembered being with a pal at age 11ish standing on an Orkney hilltop in the night watching huge glowing red orbs passing silent [...]



    10. This book totally freaked me out, and I couldn t finish it When I read it I was living in Austin which is where Whitley Streiber was living when he claims these events happened I woke up in the middle of the night for weeks seeing aliens in my bedroom.


    11. I read this book for two reasons I believed I had previously read it as a teenager, and Texas Monthly published an article at some point stating that The Secret School is one of the ten best reads by a Texas author written in the last 100 years Unfortunately The Secret School is book 4 or 5 in this series so I thought I d read it from the start.I quickly figured out I d never have read this book as a teenager because it s monotonously boring It s akin to reading the transcript of The Iran Contra [...]


    12. Regardless of your personal beliefs about aliens, this book is well written, well paced and quite riveting Spooky.


    13. Overall I thought this was a compelling read If you take what he writes to be true, then this is a pretty scary book After reading his descriptions, hypnosis transcripts and polygraph results, I m definitely convinced that something happened to him and his family Where the book lost me was in the odd discussions of ancient gods and reports of visitors throughout the ages, and some of the claims from the colloquy of abductees I can pretty much believe that some people have been visited abducted b [...]


    14. World building inspiration fuel, as pretty much every UFO esque book I ve picked up has turned out to be Had to read this one because I usually seek out the ones that combine the idea of fae and religion and UFOs, and I thought this was the nuts and bolts aliens type of book.It s not Actually, I always thought the majority of UFO type books were all about physical beings from outer space I don t think I ve read one yet that is, though Granted, I ve purposefully gone for the ones that combine myt [...]


    15. Obviously, it is easy to be skeptical when reading a fantastical account such as this I am not a skeptic for the sake of being skeptical However, there are a few important facts that you ought to know before diving into this.1 Strieber was a science fiction writer before he wrote Communion.2 Strieber had sat in on several meetings with abductees prior to writing the book.3 Since writing this, Strieber has made what some would consider to be an attempt to construct a new age religion out of his e [...]


    16. If I had felt this supposedly true alien abduction story was in any way factual, then I would have given it five stars Whitley Strieber is B level horror and sf author and has been for many years before and after the event Communion is an extremely frightening and exciting novel It sucked me in from page one and I did not put it down until the last page I feel like a little bit of a jerk, by calling him out like this but, I have spent a lot of time researching credible paranormal events, activit [...]


    17. Honestly, I don t do the whole aliens thing at all, but the cover of this book used to freak me out as a kid and a bit residually as an adult so I decided to see what was inside.Alright, about fifty pages into this book I started to realize what direction this book was heading in The author clearly believed that what he experienced was real and from there made a concerted effort to present facts and statements to support his belief rather than to draw objective conclusions, which is precisely wh [...]


    18. A very thought provoking journal of not only Whitley s experiences, but the insights these gave him I thought it was interesting how a bunch of the reading I ve done recently kind of led up to this For instance, Whitley mentioned Irish Fairy Tales to describe how the visitors may have been viewed in earlier times, Also, the visitors warned Whitley about the hole in the ozone layer, and how the UV light would suppress immune systems, and according to him, this was not known when he was informed o [...]


    19. Scary as hell I read this book with the thought that it might be interesting because there is a film based on the book I also felt that perhaps it was a tale that had been woven of partial truths However, I walked away shaken by the reality I gleaned from the pages of Communion Some readers may not rate this book quite as high After all it s not a work of literary genius but it kept me glued to the story and most of all I rated 5 stars because I think folks should take notice of this story I ve [...]


    20. This book gave me nightmares for years I slept with the light on for months I had to keep the book hidden under my bed because the picture on the cover scared me The part about the white owls looking in his bedroom window and the white deer on the side of the road haunt me years later I don t know what to make of this true account, but if aliens are really abducting people at night, there is no sense in worrying about it you have no control I am curious if he is still being abducted Has he told [...]


    21. Being an astronomy fan myself, I often encounter the issue of UFO sightings and abductions in my readings It seems that once you begin to discuss the cosmos, little green men have to enter the equation Even though I really have no opinion on such things I thought it necessary to at least have read this very often referred to account of an abductee My thoughts once you ve read this, you need not read any other abductee story because this defines the stereotype.


    22. Not badly written and some happenings have traces of suspense, but the author s insistence that these are true events brings down readability Still, if you are curious, this is the one to read Later books have less story and ramblings.


    23. Probably the best first hand account with supplemental information for fact checking of the author s encounters with a UFO and with missing time The author is also a fiction writer, so the book reads like a thriller There s nothing definitive here Instead, it allows the reader to step into the mindset of someone experiencing something they don t understand There fear is palpable as he describes his family s incidents invasive and disorienting, one can understand the paranoia that ensues.


    24. This book scared the you know what out of me, gave me nightmares, and generally freaked me out for awhile I loved it


    25. Okay, wowWtf Seriously Are there people who genuinely believe that aliens are visiting earth, kidnapping people and experimenting anally upon them I guess there are.I went into this book open minded because it is kinda fascinating, I was a huge X Files fan, and to be honest it s a nice distraction from the lights going out all across the civilized world at the moment Alien abduction Bring it on But this is just beyond ludicrous The detail with which it s all recalled under hypnosis and convictio [...]


    26. This book appears to be dismissed outright by many skeptics on the sole basis of the account being outlandish It certainly is a remarkable story a man who claims he was abducted by little grey men he calls visitors But on the surface, the moon landing is an impossibility, too.The fact is, I ve yet to see a convincing and thorough debunking of the story presented in Communion, and I believe any skeptic who wants to call Whitley Strieber crazy owes it to the man to point out where his story falls [...]



    27. Author Whitley Strieber tries to come to grips with his repeating encounters with alien life forms and what the aliens might be hoping to accomplish Interesting book, Strieber claims it is all true and does a good job writing it in a way that shows he believes it It doesn t read like a novel, and Strieber lets the reader discover what he has lost as he discovers it through hypnosis, etc Near the end of the novel once he s unlocked many of his past extraterrestrial encounters , Strieber begins to [...]
