I had heard about the Hill's experience many, many years ago and I often wondered if it was really true what happened to them. My own personal opinion now, after reading this book, is that it did indeed happen.I could not turn the pages fast enough. There is no way that two people could have such intricate details of an event like that and be making it up. Surely someone along the way would have seen through them. I lived in the White Mountains for a few years and being familiar with the area of occurrence made the book an even better read. The Hill's are intelligent and educated, their story is one of a kind. If you don't believe now, you will after you read this book. If the tops of your shoes get scuffed and you don't know how they got that way, you'd better check your watch !

At the time of first publication in 1966 the story of Betty and Barney Hill's alleged abduction by extraterrestrials whilst driving home from Montreal to Portsmouth through the White Mountains of New Hampshire on the night of 19 September 1961, as told in this book by journalist John Fuller, was highly controversial and remains so to this day due to the unassailable character of the couple and the corroborative evidence which has never been convincingly refuted.

This mixed-race couple were pillars of the community: intelligent, educated, professional, church-going, active in the civil rights movement. The last thing they wanted, or needed, was to court the kind of negative publicity which might reasonably be expected to accompany such an outlandish and improbable tale.

All they initially remembered from the night in question was being pursued by a bright light, later identified as a large disk-shaped craft with strange humanoid figures observable through the windows, as they drove the quiet road south through the mountains (on later reporting the sighting to the local USAF base it transpired that this craft had been reported by many other people in the area the same night). They arrived home two hours later than anticipated with a sense of unease. The car trunk had some unexplained shiny round marks, and when a compass was placed near these marks it unaccountably spun round and round; Barney's shoes were heavily scuffed on the tops of the toes as though he had been dragged over rough ground with his feet dangling, Betty's dress was inexplicably torn and had some very unusual stains and they both remembered hearing a `beeping' sound coinciding with the UFO sighting at two different times during the journey.

Reading this book was like watching A Hard Day's Night and recognizing the launching of an era. I have read all of Budd Hopkins' books, which are quite enjoyable and/or upsetting. Now I have discovered the granddaddy of all alien abductee regressive hypnosis transcibed sessions books.
Fuller gives the reader the necessary background information, then offers the original (edited for relevancy) transcripts from the psychiatriist's files. What a great thing it is that these sessions were tape recorded. The Hills weren't the first to be taken, but they were the first to go public, although unwillingly.
It is amusing in hindsight to read the doctor's repeated attempts to get Barney to admit that the entire encounter was a dream - if not his dream, then surely Betty's, which he somehow absorbed. Barney wants so much to believe that it was, but under hypnosis, he can only call it as he sees it.
The Interrupted Journey is a classic of UFO-related literature. It will remain fringe material so long as the UFO reality is under wraps, but when the buggers are finally outed, this book will go mainstream and become required reading.

This happened just after I graduated from High School. I vaguely remember seeing them on TV but I never listened to them. AT the time I just considered them some Nutsos. So here I am almost 55 years later just finishing there book. Two things interested me. When the UFO was coming down one of the said "Oh no not again". That was never addressed in the book. Another thing was in the UFO she was asked to explain her age and she could not say that for every year old you were that the earth goes around the sun once. She got mixed up on minutes, etc. I'll just say I "believe" there story. So I also figure that they were under some kind of mind control from just before first contact to the time they wre returned to there car. I would say that to me showed when Betty couldn't explain "age" and got confused.
The best book I have read on UFO's was "The Day After Roswell". Of course I remember my Dad reading about in the paper aboiut the UFO crashing in Roswell and the next day him reading the paper and it was a weather balloon. I'm thinking how do you confuse a saucer with a balloon?

"The Interrupted Journey" is a fascinating story based upon the experiences of Betty and Barney Hill, two alleged UFO abductees in 1962. The Hills did not have memories of the abduction, but there was a space of lost time after they saw some strange lights in the sky.

Betty and Barney were troubled by this lost time and were experiencing anxiety and stress since that trip. They had reported the lights that they saw in the sky to the US Air Force, who seemed to take report seriously. Finally they consulted a psychiatrist who began to conduct hypnosis sessions with the Hills. They were treated separately and the sessions were taped. Betty and Barney detailed the horrifying yet exciting circumstance of being abducted by aliens and undergoing physical exams. The therapy was successful in treating symptoms and helped ease the suppressed memories into their consciousness.

This book uses long quotes from the original transcripts of the hypnosis sessions. This device is highly successful in captivating the reader and giving a sense of the emotions experienced by the Hills both during the abduction and during the therapy. Fuller does a nice job bringing to life this bi-racial, middle-class couple who were prominent in the Civil Rights movement. Betty and Barney Hill's story was made into an excellent movie called "The UFO Incident" starring a young James Earl Jones with Estelle Parsons in 1975.

"The Interrupted Journey" is a very convincing account of an alien encounter. Despite the fact that the details of the abduction are fairly routine, it is an eerie story with some psychological complexity that makes for good reading. Fuller's writing can be a little stiff at times but he does a good job of allowing the character's actions to speak for themselves. Highly recommended!
