I’m fascinated with Roswell theories. Though the one I’ve latched onto the most doesn’t involve aliens, I still like hearing the extraterrestrial takes.
This book is a detailed account of Philip Corso’s alleged encounter with the aftermath of the Roswell incident including documents and alien bodies. The story spans a surprising length of time and also discusses other UFO related situations around that time.
Do I believe the information presented? Parts of it. I like to keep my opinions objective. Some of what was said seems a little out there for me. However, what I struggled with was how many different subjects the book trialed off to. It was more about UFOs in general.
Likes & Dislikes:
What I liked:
- The personal account being told.
- Very detailed explanations.
What I didn’t like:
- The book was all over the place going by the title. Roswell was maybe a third of the discussion, the rest was UFOs in general.
- There was a doomsday vibe to it, claiming aliens are coming to destroy us all. That’s what tends to lose me. Frankly, I believe they would have done so already if that were the case.
As I’ve already mentioned a couple of times, this was an extremist account. Interesting, but I personally can’t allow myself to accept it as the actual fact. Ultimately, it comes down to interpretation. However, given the author’s official rank, it’s something to consider.
