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.
