Publisher's Summary

The whole world has heard about flying saucers. But do you really know how it all got started? Do you know who first saw the flying saucers?
Meet pilot Kenneth Arnold. InThe Coming of the Saucers, Arnold describes - in breathtaking detail - his incredible sighting of the flying saucers on June 24, 1947.
Arnold also recounts his harrowing investigation into the infamous Maury Island Incident, which ended with the deaths of two Air Force intelligence officers after they flew past Mount Rainier - where Arnold had seen the discs.
After being followed by Men in Black, Arnold discovered that his hotel room had been bugged, and that he had been manipulated by CIA asset Fred Lee Crisman, an eventual suspect in the JFK assassination. Following these and other strange, spooky occurrences, Arnold barely escaped a plane crash himself!
Arnold was a private man, who rarely lectured or made public appearances. The Coming of the Saucers is thus a rare, primary-source document of importance to all UFO researchers and enthusiasts. Not only is this the story of the first two major UFO sightings in the U.S., but it is also the birth of the Men in Black mythos.

The Coming of the Saucers was one of the most compelling stories I've ever listened to. Hearing Kenneth Arnold's story through audio really brought it to life. The timeline of the events that took place and the people involved was just plain spooky. It is indeed breathtaking. This IS where it all started and while some may or may not be familiar with Kenneth Arnold, I am and this story blew me away. It was scary in a 'get your tin foil hat on' kind of way.

Then there are the numerous sightings and reporting of unidentified flying objects or UFO's across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico and all over the world that boggle the mind. As a person that sometimes listens to a late night radio talk show primarily based on the subject of UFO's and other mystifying events and happenings, I absolutely loved this edge of your seat audiobook. I definitely recommend listening to this one.

About the narrator: Jack Chekijian is a terrific voice actor. I love listening to him. He relayed this story perfectly. It was as if Kenneth Arnold was telling the story himself. Jack Chekijian speaks clearly and always uses correct pronunciation of places and names. Overall, he made this a great and interesting listening experience.

I received this audiobook foc inx for an unbiased review.
