About this deal

This film left a lasting impression on me, which didn't wane during the second and even third viewing. Before becoming an author, he worked at an advertising agency from 1970 to 1977, going from account supervisor to vice president. And Whitley Strieber's riveting account of what he experienced, along with his relentless and expert pursuit of the reality behind the experience, is to this day the greatest such account ever published. The dreamlike way it all unfolds makes the visitors much more nightmarish and believable than a more straight forward account would be. I can pretty much believe that some people have been visited/abducted by alien beings (or those from another dimension).

I dont regret the reading of the book, I regret the excitement I wasted thinking this was some great big secret conspiracy type shit and I WANTED IN.

This book is difficult to rate because I am not sure how much Strieber is telling his initial "alien contact" experiences the way they happened to him, or how he has ended up remembering them after gaving gone into hypnotherapy and discussed the subject with other contactees. I must also be bat shit crazy because I immediately wanted to read this "secret" book that was shameful and would embarrass his mother if we knew he was reading it. He looked us dead in the eyes individually and said "it's not the communion you're thinking" and walked away with his book to hide under a tree. I could easily have gotten up and read a book or listened to the radio or gone for a midnight walk in the snow. This very much sounds like the rantings of a man who has experienced traumatic events and doesn't know what to make of it.

His book The Afterlife Revolution written with his deceased wife Anne, is a record of what is considered to be one of the most powerful instances of afterlife communication ever recorded. The author’s writing style could be too self-referential, as he was constantly name-dropping the titles of other books he’s written and assuring readers of his sanity.

The message of Communion, that something unknown is really happening to people but that we have not studied it enough to understand it, remains as timely now as it was in 1987 when the book was first published.

I wish to be clear that I felt, at that moment, wide awake and in full possession of all my faculties.Do not miss this great classic and the powerful introduction that explores the situation as it stands today--even more provocative now, as official sources are admitting that UFOs are real unknowns and that they seem to have something to do with close encounters. Thus begins the most astonishing true-life odyssey ever recorded -- one man's riveting account of his extraordinary experiences with visitors from"elsewhere. I always read it taking the visitors out of the equation and looking at Streibers subsequent examination of himself, and his life. In his popular UFO books, Communion and Transformation , Whitley Strieber noted his uncertainty whether the ``visitors'' who allegedly abducted him were extraterrestrials, fairies or something else.

In Ritual, pioneering scientist Dimitris Xygalatas leads an enlightening tour through one of the most shadowy realms of human behaviour. My son had discovered to his delight that the snow would fall in perfect crystalline flakes on his gloves if he stood still with his hands out.It is a philosophical parable, saying that any explanation would be nothing but a mask over the truth, which cannot be expressed in words. On December 26, 1985, at a secluded cabin in upstate New York, Whitley Strieber went skiing with his wife and son, ate Christmas dinner leftovers, and went to bed early. Given how much the use of hypnotic regression therapy has come under criticism especially in regards to fantastic subject matter like UFO abductions (see Susan Clancy's books about the subject), I end up thinking that whatever weird things Strieber experienced they might not have happened the way he describes they did. En cierto modo inquietante, ya que las experiencias que cuenta el autor no pueden catalogarse en ningún apartado conocido. In effetti appare come una testimonianza prima di tutto quanto ormai emerso in merito alle interferenze aliene.
