    How about a review from someone that has read the book?

    I've read the book, met the authors, and been to Point Pleasant. This text does an excellent job of collecting newspaper articles and interviews with witnesses that can be found no where else. If you're into the facts behind the movie check this one out - these guys actually live there. Then go to Point Pleasant, WV and see the Mothman Festival - you may even luck into meeting John Keel, the author of 'The Mothman Prophecies', as he has a habit of showing up at the festival.

    Not the point...

    I haven't read this book, first off, and I don't mean this as a review. I just wanted to point out to the other reviewer here that this book isn't supposed to be exciting. It claims to be factual, and oftentimes, facts are boring. From other reviews I've read, this book does a good job of presenting only the factual, unbiased (as much as possible) information surrounding the events. That's what the book claims to be about, and if that's what it accomplishes, it deserves a good review. Keel's book about it is probably what you want if you want a story and something more exciting - but his account is just that, his account. Entirely subjective, so be careful what you believe.

    Not the greatest

    This book had very thourough information, but it was the same thing by the same person and newpaper clippings from that time period over and over. Yes, it was convincing, but it was different people's versions of this same sighting. There wasn't much about some of the prophecies that were supposed to be surrounding this creature. It was a few people's accounts of what happened and tons of newpaper clippings from local papers. This in itself was interesting, but not page after page after page after .... you get the idea. It needed more of a variation and it got VERY boring after a very short time. You could skim through this book in about an hour and get the idea. Very un-exciting.
