Publisher's Summary

West Virginia, 1966. For thirteen months the town of Point Pleasant is gripped by a real-life nightmare that culminates in a tragedy that makes headlines around the world. Strange occurrences and sightings, including a bizarre winged apparition that becomes known as the Mothman, trouble this ordinary American community. Mysterious lights are seen moving across the sky. Domestic animals are found slaughtered and mutilated. And journalist John Keel, arriving to investigate the freakish events, soon finds himself an integral part of an eerie and unfathomable mystery. Translated into over thirteen languages, John Keel's unsettling account of what he encountered in Point Pleasant has long been regarded as a classic in the literature of the unexplained. It is now the basis of a major motion picture starring Richard Gere and Laura Linney.
The Mothman Prophecies is also available in print from Tor Books.

Forget the film

I very much enjoyed this audio book and the style of Keek's writing. The film of the film version only really scratches the surface of does not reflect the weird things that were happening in the run up to the collapse of the bridge at Pount Pleasant. The narration is very good by Craig Wasson and I will look out for other titles where he is the narrator.

Keel describes events and characters that come alive in this presentation and the story caputered my imagination despite my skeptical view point.

A bit over the top.

I haven't got a problem with the quality of the recording nor the reading so in that respect it's not at all bad. My only complaint is the bounderies of the fantastic are breeched so readily. I mean the guy who wrote this at once debunks certain myths and at the same time promotes others. But the one thing that got me to turn towards my player and vocally exclaim 'WHAT??' was when he suggested that a person in someones house was either wearing electric socks or was a remote control android programmed to interview people. And scarily he says it with all seriousness.
I'd recommend you only buy this if you've got money to burn.

I guess it's my fault as I should've read the bumph thoroughly.
