Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"The famous 1961 Betty and Barney Hill abduction by non-humans is taken apart, meticulously re-examined by Betty's niece and nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman, and reinforced by the pressure of facts."
--Linda Moulton Howe, Emmy Award-winning TV producer, reporter, and editor, Earthfiles.com

"With the publication of this book, the skeptics' 'wiggle room' has shrunk to zero. No longer can they get away with ignoring or minimizing the importance of various details in order to claim they merely saw a light. Instead, the Hills' story still stands as a strong reminder that we can't explain everything that happens."
--from the Foreword by Dr. Bruce Maccabee, author of Abduction In My Life

Customer Reviews

This book is a MUST READ for all with an interest in ufology.
OCAngel
The book goes a long way to make the Hills more "real" and their personal story is told in full for, so far as I know, the first time.
Wayne Beckham
The story in itself is amazing and backed up by many facts and data.

Captured! - the Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World's First Documented Alien Abduction is an in-depth analysis of the first (widely reported) case of what would come to be known as "alien abduction."

The root of the story is that author John G. Fuller, worked with Barney and Betty Hill and Dr. Benjamin Simon to expand on an October 25th, 1965 Boston Traveler newspaper story, "UFO Chiller: Did THEY Seize Couple?"

The result of this effort was the best-selling book, The Interrupted Journey (1965). (Just as an aside, a lot of people forget that the original title was the more sensational, The Interrupted Journey: Two Lost Hours Aboard A Flying Saucer. The abbreviated title was obviously the more intriguing choice!)

CAPTURED! is thoroughly researched and well written. Highly recommended.

I know it is faithfully based on the audio tapes that were made while Betty and Barney Hill were under hypnosis, because I am one of the two or three living people who listened to all of those tapes.

My notarized testimony of my involvement with Betty and Barney Hill is included at several places in this book.

Having read other works by Stanton Friedman, I had an idea as to what to expect when I started reading this book. I was definitely not disappointed.

Before reading Captured! - the Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World's First Documented Alien Abduction, I was familiar with the basics of the Hill sighting/abduction case, general background information, the major sighting/abduction experience and the star map drawn by Betty. However, from the details about their personal lives, family, friends, education, professions, etc; to the recounting of their multiple sightings and abduction experiences, I was literally blown away by the amount of information presented.

This book clearly illustrates a well researched investigation into who the Hills were and what they experienced, never before have I seen such an in depth analysis of such a controversial abduction case. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the alien abduction phenomenon or UFOs in general. If anyone has doubts about what the Hill's witnessed to what was done to them aboard an extraterrestrial space craft, they should be easily forgotten after reading this book.

Format: Paperback
I am an avid collector and reader of books on this subject. The Hill Case has long deserved to be re-visited again in these times. The original Fuller book, the Interrupted Journey, is a classic but suffered from the times it wass written in. There were details that were known then but could not be discussed in the 1960's as they can now.
I enjoyed how a lot of the gaps in the story were filled in as well as giving rather interesting biographical information on the Hills.
The issue I have with the book is that it spends a lot of time in too much detail about things that don't matter to the narrative and fighting debunkers. Using many pages "proving" that a now empty space over the door frame of a rest room at a restaurant orignally held the actual clock that Betty looked at over 40 years ago wasn't the great revelation that Friedman thinks it is. He also comes off as a bit too touchy over the debunkers concerns and goes into them in excruciating detail. Both of these type of things take up nearly half of the book.
Friedman doesn't take on the obvious questions about the case that have been brought up over the years because he takes things at face value. He takes everything that the "aliens" say and do without any thought of how they may be devious or deceptive. The so called "Star Map" that they showed to Betty is to Friedman an actual map. He doesn't ask the question as to why these beings show Betty a map from her perspective. He doesn't ask why on one hand the "leader" cannot understand what time is as Betty discusses it with him when only minutes the same leader says to her (paraphrase)"We need to hurry as we haven't much time left!". Surely this and many other of the "edges" ask for some analysis.
Knowing his work it is pretty much what I expected.
