Book Review: The Keepers: An Alien Message for the Human Race


Title: The Keepers: An Alien Message for the Human Race
Author: Jim Sparks


Keep your eyes and mind open

I had a hard time deciding if I should give this book 3 stars or four. The reason is that there are lots of books, now, describing alien abductions. I read them to see if anything is jarred in my memory. Jim Sparks, the author, describes the surreal experience and trying to cope with them. If you put the shoe on the other foot and you are an alien, how would you scientifically test us? We do it to lab animals all the time. If you are a rat, would you understand the purpose of a labyrinth type experiment? The author, towards the end of this book, remembers some possible military involvement. The CIA over the years has funded many “scientific”studies on the populace, only for them to come to light decades later.If you believe we are being keep,read the book.

Book Review: The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee


Title: The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee
Author: Mike Clelland, Richard Dolan (Foreword)


Birds of a feather

This book deals with a phenomenon that occurs in some alien abduction cases. Abductees sometimes view animals before the abduction process occurs. Owls are one of the predominant ones. The author, Mike Clelland, discusses various cases with an owl involved. He notes that sometimes real owls as well as screened images of larger-than-life owls are remembered. He postulates that real owls may be physically attracted to the abductee. I, myself, have problems with dolphins when I fish and have a much larger percent of oddities that occur with them.I wish that the book would’ve pursued possible scientific reason/differences between owls interactions with normal people and abductees. I can understand the author’s possible problems finding any scientist looking into this. The book bounces around with sacred owl sites in England to owls in pop culture. The drawback of the book is that the subject matter occurs but the answer to why is beyond us. The author could’ve just reported owl occurrences in a row, but it would have probably just bored us. He tries to interweave owl related things. To me the weakness of the book is having to do that. But there probably wasn’t another way to do it. If you have a high occurrence of unusual animal interactions in your life, read the book.
