Sekret Machines Gods came out on March 7th.

I know a few people here had expressed interest in the book before it was released.
Well, it's been a week or so, if your reading it - what do you think?

Is it a page turner like Chasing Shadows?
Or is it the same rehashed stuff we have been hear about all ready?

Yep. I'm halfway through.



I'm not ready to review it.

They are building a theory from the ground up that has similarities with old ideas but for those who read carefully they are not parroting them, but critiquing them and stating their own interpretation.

It is nonfiction but readable. For those who've "heard it all before" it will seem too detailed and for those to whom the subject matter is new, it provides depth and history.

Frankly, they could have added even more to it than they did, exploring a multitude of other cultures and how they fit the patterns they are working with in their thesis.

There is also the reference back to what their high level contacts said they should focus on, which is subtle and might be missed if it isn't read carefully.

I find it fascinating because of my interests and how non-UFO books I've studied are enriching the experience for me.

Anyway, I'm not all the way through with it so my opinion may evolve.

A lot of folks here are being very negative, but I've come to expect that. I suggest you read it to form your own opinion.

Why make us work so hard to attain his extra or new information he's been given or found out? Why make us have to read super super closely and between the lines? Why not just state it plain?

I have read it and will try to give it another go, just in case it will read better on the second reading.

I am one of the people who have been a bit negative... I confess...

I think he is writing this for newbies, not for experienced ufologists (not that I'm personally claiming that title, but there are those here equally well read to Mr DeLonge).

He is building his argument from the ground up and both acknowledging the similarities to past investigations and differentiating his conclusions from theirs, based on the research guidance he received from the higher ups. That is my understanding.

For mainstream folk, this is crazy stuff, and it needs solid underpinnings via historical research in order to hold up to scrutiny. It is an attack on the foundations of religion, so it needs some effort put into it as it will be mercilessly attacked (from all sides).

No one will be satisfied by how this rolls out, if they have been waiting for decades to hear some revelation of truth, some indication that there are those "in the know," or at least more in the know, than the masses.

I'm about to buy this for my Kindle.

It's on the way. I bought it the first day it appeared, albeit not kindle. I do not have high expectations, but I'll give it a shot.

I was entertained by the first book, so I look forward to this one. That's about all I expect from this project and it hasn't disappointed me.

I don't expect anything particularly new or "revolutionary" by any means, but I do enjoy a good story.


a reply to: schuyler

Low expectations and, in my case low standards (I like to call them different), are truly a key factor to my enjoyment. I'm not exclusively referring to this project with that, as I don't think its that bad, but I've found I enjoy everything from books to movies a helluva lot more when I redefined my approach.

I could care less what blink 182 has to say about aliens.

If he doesn't have anything new to add. Then he is just rehashing everyone elses work.

I think mainly because if he came out and told us, we wouldn't tune in next time when he releases his next book lol

Haven't heard of it, but you certainly piqued my interest.

Reading it on my kindle. I'm 55% of the way through. So far I would say that it says a great deal without saying anything at this point.

I hope it gets a little better. Any book series that references it's future books this much comes across as a little shady.

I was pursuing on he interweebs and found a link to a download of the book in PDF form.
I loved Chasing Shadows, I hope this book is just as good or better.

Gonna download it after the walking dead tonight, and hopefully get through a couple chapters.

It is non fiction. Academic-ish.

They have another novel coming out sometime too...a part 2.

About the only type of book I'll read. When did non-fiction become a "negative"?

Oh no - I don't think its a negative, I just didn't want them to think it was the novel's sequel! That's all! lol!

I am enjoying the non-fiction, personally...
