Review: Mojave Incident by Ron Felber

On the night of October 21, 1989, nine glowing objects appeared over an empty stretch of the Mojave desert—and turned a couple’s quiet weekend into an unearthly nightmare of terror.

Elise and Tom Gifford say they were held captive in their camper by nonhuman creatures—and through love and prayer were able to live through psychological torment as their captors manipulated their minds with telepathic power.

The Watchers hovered over them for a day and a night, they say, stealing their thoughts and emotions, making them relive their most painful and intimate memories, bringing them to the brink of madness. Hours later they were alone again—alive but the visits continued
and the nightmare wasn’t over.

Called "The most frightening UFO book ever written", The Mojave Incident touches the subconscious fears deep in all of us.

Received for review

As a huge fan of The X-Files I still cannot pass up a book about UFOs, whether a fictional or (supposedly) non-fictional account, so I was intrigued when this arrived.

The book was supposedly based on real events but this was certainly a fictionalized account and as such took a bit of creative license with the events and characters. If said events actually occurred (which I seriously doubt, considering this read like a very poorly written X-Files fanfiction) then I almost feel worse for the poor aliens “abductors” who had to deal with the horrible Gifford family. Supposedly the Giffords “defeated” the aliens with the power of their prayers. Frankly, I can’t blame the aliens leaving after being prayed at constantly. That actually sounds like the worse end of the bargain.

Overall, between the rather lackluster writing and the genuinely unlikeable characters this was a bit of a disappointment and I really cannot recommend it unless you are a hardcore alien abductions fan.

★★☆☆☆ = Just Okay

I haven't heard of praying the aliens aaay before. Maybe that will work on Donald Trump too.
