The first thing I noticed was how much I loved the writing. This isn't my usual genre, so it was definitely a new experience for me. But, gosh, the writing was amazing. I loved the way Thomas described everything. Seriously good writing here, people. One of the best books I have read this year, for sure!

Thomas Hay does a good job of telling you his life story and then tying it all in to this alien adbuction scenario that he believe is true now that his memory block has been removed.
I found the story quite far-fetched but if you read it in the spirit of just a good story instead of fact then you can get past that and really enjoy the writing.
I don't want to give the story away but it involves so many things that end up all being tied together. Hay is exceptionally good at Morse Code. His wife up and asks him for a divorce one day and says they were abducted by aliens. He marries an Arabian woman who disappears. He is visited by men from NASA and all kinds of crazy things happen. You better really pay attention or you will get confused.
His mind block is gone so he writes about his memoirs. Well, that I don't buy but I think he has a great imagination.
I actually enjoyed the story as long as I didn't get too serious about it. He references songs every chapter and I have never been into music but I recognized quite a few of them. I think that was a nice addition that took lots of thought.
At the end of the book there is a list of idioms. I also enjoyed that. I am sure that took a great deal of time to add that section just for your enjoyment.Read more ›
I enjoyed the "human" aspect of the author's story, his childhood, young adulthood and adulthood. His lifelong quest to find love and to find his purpose in this world is a very relate-able and real struggle that many readers can relate to. I would have preferred if the author developed his relationships with other characters/family members a bit more. He has a rather delicate family tree and most relationships were developed enough to give you the basic background about each character, but after that they were mostly abandoned. The author tends to reveal what's coming up through statements like, little did I know it was going to get a lot worse, or our happiness was short lived, etc. That somewhat ruined the reading for me, because there was no build up of anticipation, I simply knew that it wasn't going to work out between him and his second wife.
I struggled with the "alien" aspect of the book a bit. To me, certain elements were entertaining, others disturbing and seemed to fall under "creative writing". There are several references to the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and after finishing the book, I watched the movie to help me bridge certain scenes as described by T. Hay. All in all, I was greatly entertained while reading and I was glad to have read the author's interpretation of what had happened to him.
Anyway, woven into this, his second book, is a bizarre tale of recurring alien abductions.
Mercifully we're spared the usual abduction yarn, where the Earthling undergoes medical experiments, before mating with some big-breasted, blond-haired alien.
I won't give away any spoilers, but I will say that this abduction tale is highly unusual, and at times really quite eerie.
In the end, the reader is left with the impression that either Mr Hay has experienced a series of extraordinary events throughout his life, or he is a writer who has an extraordinary imagination. In the end we are left to make up our own minds.
Either way, this is a fascinating read.
