In the West, plot is commonly thought to revolve around conflict: a confrontation between two or more elements, in which one ultimately dominates the other. The standard three- and five-act plot structures—which permeate Western media—have conflict written into their very…

guys remember when Lemony Snicket filled an entire page with evers? 

I do.

Who cares about the page filled with evers? Lemony Snicket just made two whole pages black.

He don’t give a shit.

Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience
Kathleen Marden and Stanton T. Friedman

Published: July 23rd, 2007
Type: Nonfiction

Vee’s rating: 8/10
Suggested rating: All ages

This volume chronicles the first documented UFO abduction in the US, the Betty and Barney Hill case. Not only is it presented in a purely factual manner, but this particular book is written by a Hill family member, and so possesses a unique amount of detail.

I’m not a nonfiction person, really, but I have recently started to dip my toes into a little UFO research and doing so, found this little gem. The Hill story is not only the first, but, in my opinion, is one of the most persuasive cases presented for the reality of alien abduction.

All of the facts presented are purely science and matters of record, but the book is written in a “story-like” voice, which keeps the whole thing from feeling too tedious. Great attention is paid to the Hill’s hypnosis sessions, reporting of their experiences, and the effects the slow leaking of their experience had on their personal lives.

Captured! is knocked down to a 8 out of 10 simply because the “story” element [the telling of the whole tale] is a little too broken up with the facts and documentation for my taste. As someone who keeps to fiction the majority of the time, this is probably just a personal thing.

If you’ve even been curious about aliens, UFOs, or abduction of any kind, I would definitely recommend this book. It’s a relatively quick read and doesn’t work to hard to push the reader towards believing or not believing.
