4.0 out of 5 stars Alien Landing Feb. 17 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Alien Landing is about a mysterius air craft crash in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. It's written by Terry Deay. The book is both fction and non-fiction. The second half is filled with a glossory, biographias of actual characters and fictional characters, and classified files.

The story is about a young man who wants to become a big time FBI agent. His chief puts pressure on him because if he becumes a FBI agent he's going to have access to classified files that he'll have to keep a secret his whole life.The chief tells him to go to New york to talk to a retired agent to learn a major secret he has kept his wole life. The retired agent tells him what happend at Roswell, that he was the first eyewitnes at the cash site and that he found alien bodies. When the guy went back to talk to his boss to tell him that he's ready for his promotion, his boss was replased by people who told him that the retired agent was ccrazy and that the aliens were really monkeys on a secrit experimental rocket. The guy decided not to become a agent. The story ended with him not knowing who to belive.

I think the ather was sucsesful by bringing a story from 60year ago up tell today. He told the story by interviewing the last eyewitness and then interviewing the goverment but the goverment said something totoly diferent from the witness witch leeves all the answers to our questions a mystory.

In the end I would give this book 4stars because you learn a lot about what happend at Roswell, New Mexico. You also learn that people would lie to get money and the goverment would lie just to stop panic.
5.0 out of 5 stars Are there really aliens?Find out in this mysterious book. Oct. 10 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Half of the book are classified files which gives you an insight of one of THE most mysterious and intrigueing events of this century. In this story(present day) a FBI agent is sent to find out ever thing about what
happened back then in 1947 so he talks to a former FBI agent who was there at the sight of the crash.
The former agent, John Smith gives every single detail about the the crash at Roswell.
When the agent returns to give his report on the incident, a new boss takes over. The new boss tells the
agent that Mr.Smith was ill and the former boss should have kept his mouth shut about the incident.
Later John Smith suspiciously dies.
4.0 out of 5 stars good! July 24 2008

Today I was at the library, killing time with Mason and I happened on a Alien childrens book. Turned out I was looking at a fiction UFO book, but it had some "facts pages" which talked about Roswell, how the unbelievable could in reality be fact, how secrets can be kept and such. That part was quite thought provoking. The book is a good combination of fact and fiction.

And if you don't believe in Aliens. . here is a fact.

Anyway the fact is that I have talked to a guy who saw a UFO, not the bright light in the sky, but very different circumstances. He told me that back in the 60's, he worked at an Air Force base. He was a contractor, doing his work for years. The whole time, he knew there was something secret there, but he wasn't allowed to know exactly what. He figured it was just a secret missile or something. One day, the guards at one of the hangers as him a question.
"Hey, do you want to see what we have been guarding all this time?" says the guard.
"Sure." the man replies.
The guard(s) open a door to a hanger, just enough to let him look inside. At the far end of the hanger is a brilliant shiny saucer. Looking like nothing of this earth. That was all the guards let him see.
Anyway, ever since I heard this story firsthand, I find it difficult not to believe that UFO's where found by the US Government.
Anyway, I just thought I'd share the story.

By haynes@sprint.ca - Published on Amazon.com
A Project Mogul balloon was what crashed at Roswell in June of 1947. It amazes me that a simple balloon can cause so much fiction in it's wake!
