I recently just finished this book and I just wanted to share my opinion on it; as well as find out other ATS'ers opinions.
The interesting thing about Communion is that Whitley never claims that he was visited by aliens but instead simply claims that as far as he can tell,
he was visited by something and it had a profound effect on him.
There are a lot of transcripts in the book which are taken from Whitley's hypnosis / therapy sessions in which he recounts, in detail, his
experiences with what he calls "the visitors".
Much of these transcripts can get pretty long and tedious, not to mention redundant. That said, there is an interesting chapter where Whitley makes
some arguments and shares some ideas on the origin of the visitors, what they want and why they're here. To some, it may be a tad "new-agey" but I
thought it was one of the more compelling parts of the book.
Judging by Streiber's apparent honesty and the legitimacy surrounding his story, I think I can say that I believe that he believes that he was
visited by "something". I don't know if they are UFO's or if he underwent some kind of hysteria.
There are some random little facts like how he mentions that the visitors have a offensive odor like sulfur and cardboard. He talks about them being
humanoid in appearance, some even wearing denim overalls (?). Some of it can be pretty out there, but it's fascinating all the same.
I'd like to know if there is any validity to his claim that his experience is in sync with many others who claim to have been visited. A lot of the
experience is shared among all different kinds of abductees which, if true, could be an interesting part of the puzzle. I'd just like to hear of
these other alleged cases in detail.
All in all, I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject. I'm sure a lot of you have already read it, but to anyone who hasn't;
it seems this book is more or less "essential reading" or UFO buffs and the like.
Let me know what you guys thought of the book.
Btw, the next book I plan on reading after I finish the one I'm reading now is : The THREAT: THE SECRET AGENDA WHAT THE ALIENS REALLY WANT AND HOW
THEY PLAN TO GET IT - by David M Jacobs. (www.amazon.com...
