O'Brien, the self-proclaimed "renowned ufologist", was incomprehensibly given a second book contract from the geniuses at St. Martins Press after his first tour-de-force, Mysterious Valley. Apparently having run out of UFO and cattle mutilation stories, O'Brien's second book is a rambling, poorly written discourse on such inane topics as devil sightings, teleporting nuns, self-flagellating religious zealots, cannibalism, hollow-earth stories and appearances of leprechauns. Don't even think about descending to his level in regard to this book.
The subject is well researched and presented in a format that draws the reader in. We are presented with reports which are reviewed in an open ended style. The author says something "wonderfull and mysterious is happening" in the region. I'm not sure if I agree that cattle and possible human mutilations are "wonderful" events, but the subject matter cannot be ignored. Compelling enugh to have persuaded a trio of us to plan a trip and "Enter The Valley" this summer for ourselves. Dan
I liked this book and think you will too. Not as good as his first but still interesting and worth while... Why? Because this man, unlike most other UFO writers actually got out on the ground and did 1000 hours ++ investigation --- and then wrote it up for us to read. Buy it! It is a good value, definitely one of the better books out there.
Chris O'Brien is intensely intuitive, believably skeptical, and genuinely honest in his new book. But has he been abducted, or brainwashed, or threatened by the govornment? Only you can decide when you read this convoluted, disjointed, and baffling narrative of experiences in the San Luis Valley.
