The Silver Bridge to the imagination
on November 30, 2008
Gray Barker may never have found the Mothman or proved that it existed, but the stories he collected/created in The Silver Bridge were fascinating nonetheless. The book intertwined a strong narrative with factual interviews so that the reader is left to figure out what really happened.
The best parts of the book were the interviews with the people who say they actually had experienced an incident with the Mothman. Having read The Mothman Prophecies and remembering John Keel's interviews with the Scarberrys and the Mallettes, The Silver Bridge allows the reader to really understand their background as well as introducing a few new names into the frey, like Jimmi Jamieson and Frank Wentworth, both with their own Mothman experience. Whether the latter two people were real or composites, however, is anyone's guess.
Ambiguous, but highly enjoyable.
