Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"One comes to a tender regard for Hopkins's subjects. Their uniform similarities of description of their UFO abductions and of the aliens bear a faithful fact that could sway many an ironclad skeptic."
There have been tens of thousands of verified UFO sightings and landings. But it is the actual temporary abductions that are the most controversial and dramatic stories behind this phenomenon. In the summer of 1983, Kathie Davis was floated out of her room in rural Indianapolis, while she slept, then subjected to a physical examination inside a UFO. The story she told the world afterwards, and corroborated by specialists and hundreds of other victims all over the country, is not to be missed or dismissed lightly.

Format: Paperback
Let me just start off by mentioning that I read Budd Hopkin's book Sight Unseen and was somewhat disappointed in it. Although it did pick up at the end. So altogether I was not too prospective about this book, but I was totally wrong. The way he writes in Intruders and the way he writes in Sight Unseen are completely different. The characters and their stories are so much more believable and just better written than in Unseen. At certain points in the book I really felt compassion and sadness for these people and their experiences. I mean like the author says, abduction accounts are one of two things. One, it's some new psychological disorder that a mass of people from cultures throughout the world are developing, in which people have almost identical experiences involving very serious, intimate actions. Or, second, Extraterrestrials are real. They are here. And they're taking people and conducting experiments involving very serious, invasive things. Either way, these two scenarios, whichever it might be need to be looked at and studied extensively, and these people "Victims" should not be ridiculed or shunned anymore than an abused or raped person should receive.

Saying all of that, this book strongly supports the E.T. involvement scenario and goes into extreme detail about the experiences of these people. These people deserve help either way. This book is a great read and will surely be at the top of your alien abduction book list.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By The Guardian TOP 500 REVIEWER on August 16, 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Following the publication of "Missing Time" in 1982 Budd Hopkins received many hundreds of letters from people disturbed by reading the accounts described in that landmark book. The letter writers were from all over the world and many exhibited a deep anxiety disproportionate to any apparent cause: a partial memory of strangeness accompanied by an episode of "missing time," or just something odd and half-remembered happening to them.

The floodgates were opened. Budd gradually came to recognize the most telling pointers to genuine abduction experiences. The writer would frequently exhibit anxiety, almost apologetic, using phrases like "I know you are a busy man and I really hope I am not wasting your time" ..."there's probably nothing to it, but..." invariably insistent that anonymity be maintained and fearful of confiding even in close family members details of the half-remembered trauma.

One such letter was from Debbie Jordan-Kauble, a young divorced mother of two small boys living in a large family house with her parents in Indiana. Together with her letter were photographs of a large circular burned patch of ground in their garden where the soil had been baked hard, discovered the morning following mysterious lights accompanied by an episode of missing time and her dog behaving in an uncharacteristically frightened manner. Debbie is disguised in the book as `Kathy Davis' and the Indianapolis location as `Copley Woods.' So began a landmark two-and-a-half year investigation which took the study and understanding of the UFO abduction phenomenon into new and hitherto uncharted areas and led to the publication of this most profound, highly readable and truly classic book which deservedly became a New York Times best seller.

I have read this book (actually the hardcover) several times and even cited it as resource material for a college paper (back in the day). Powerfully written. Each reader has to make up their own mind about the subject matter, but there is no denying the talent which Hopkins possesses when he puts pen to paper. Not as "edge of your seat" as Missing Time, but a very close second. You will not be disappointed.

Hopkins whose "Missing Time" caused a sensation in the UFO
community and general public alike with its claim that humans
were being whisked away by aliens for experimental purposes,
in this follow up work focuses on the abduction experiences of a young woman and her
family members. The author presents the evidence, suggests possible conventional
explanation for the bizarre events, and deftly eliminates all
of them in favor of the only rational one: that what is being
described is exactly what happened.

15 of 22 people found the following review helpful By Nancy A. Fox on October 13, 1999
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Budd Hopkins, has spent many years working with people who feel that they may have been abducted by "aliens". During that time he has come to the theory that the "aliens" are using humanity for a cross-breeding program. He bases this on similar accounts involving procedures taking sperm and ova samples from many people in quite different sections of the country (U.S.A.)
I feel that Mr. Hopkins truly wants to help these people, many of which seem to be suffering from some sort of anxiety disorder. I do however, question his strong reliance on hypnosis to recover these memories. Many studies recently have shown how easy it is for someone asking leading questions to a hypnotized person to inadvertantly imprint false memories.
Not the best written book, but interesting. I do wish a little more scientific rigor had been followed by Mr. Hopkins in his investigations.

A sequel to “Missing Time.”
Hopkins states there have been hundreds of abductions in which certain bloodlines are taken for physical examinations perhaps repeatedly at intervals. Sperm samples are included. Maybe a subject is taken from a group while the rest are turned off until the subjects’ return…hence the missing time…
Perhaps the human species is the subject of a breeding experiment!
Strange lights in the sky, on the ground, in pump houses on or over the victim, and on birdfeeders baffle the public…
The book focuses on a subject at Copley Woods in Indianapolis, but, since there are no woods in Indianapolis, perhaps the writer meant Marion County or Indianapolis Arkansas.
But, the Marion County Public Library reference department indicates that, after Unigov was instituted, most of Marion County is considered Indianapolis… In addition, Hopkins was said to have created the name Copley Woods and changed the name of the primary character to protect the family’s privacy.
However, a person claiming to be Debbie Joran-Kauble has posted to the internet her account of the event under the heading “The Copely Woods (note the spelling difference), Indiana encounter.
Whoa! Our inquisitive bigheaded aliens used nasal and other bodily implants and ear probes. Ouch!
Other multiple case studies concluded that many humans have been abducted for medical examinations and breeding experiments, perhaps intending to save the aliens’ ancient and dying race.
So, that’s the way it goes. On one hand, it is problematic to state that other life does not exist in the universe, but, on the other, it is also problematic to presume the events recorded in this tom
