Publisher's Summary

In the early morning hours of March 28, 2011, Charles and Helene Fontaine experienced something that shattered their beliefs about the nature of reality.
One evening in 1981, Connie J Cannon was on I-75 with her young son, en route to their new home in Florida, when they suddenly found themselves on a military base, with a man in uniform holding a gun to her head as three Grays stood nearby.
In 1979, Diane Fine was on her way from upstate New York to Vermont to see an obstetrics specialist for her high risk pregnancy, and experienced two hours of missing time. When she was finally examined at the clinic, she was told wasn't pregnant.
In 1970, pilot Bruce Gernon was chased by something through the Bermuda Triangle and he has been talking about it ever since - to UFO Hunters, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, the History Channel, the Sci-Fi channel, and all their foreign counterparts.
These individuals have never met. But they share something significant. In 2003, a Roper Organization survey revealed that 33 million Americans may be abductees. Aliens in the Backyard is their story.

A fascinating subject ...

I was fascinated by the description of this book, and once I started listening, the fascination continued. Rob and Trish MacGregor have written an excellent account of their exploration of alien encounters and alien abduction. Partly because there is little to no obvious judgment on their part on whether the encounters actually happened, I was able to reserve judgment and just listen to what they had discovered. They have an excellent ability to simply describe the events and let the reader decide for themselves what has really happened. I started the book feeling fairly skeptical, for although I absolutely admit to the probability of “otherness”, I have not had much contact with or done much research into this subject, and skeptical is usually where I start. By the end of the book, however, the descriptions of encounters by varied individuals and couples had me shaking my head and wondering … could it really be? The descriptions were clear and pulled me right along, and it was amazing how much commonality could be found between them. And synchronicity – how did I miss this word all my life? I had to go look up the definition, and then I was shouting “YES!” because I have felt the synchronicity in the world so many times without knowing what to call it. I learned quite a bit from this book, and consider it well worth the read for anyone wishing to know something about the subject without a “hard sell” approach. I thought the narrator, Kevin Pierce, was excellent for this type of book. His style was calm, clear, low key, and fairly slow, which worked very well for this subject matter. I probably wouldn't have enjoyed that type of delivery for a suspense novel, but for this one I thought it was perfect. The book translated quite well to audio, except for one complaint. I occasionally became confused as to who was speaking, the narrator or the person having the experience. I liked the style of writing with a main narrator throughout and various people’s experiences interwoven into the story, but a few more “he said,” or “she said” would have been helpful for the audio version. (I never thought I would say that!) But it was a minor complaint in the overall reading of an excellent book by a very appropriate narrator.

very well written

Where does Aliens in the Backyard rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

There are a million UFO books out there. Almost all are passionate and come from the author's heart. But, they can be poorly written.

This one is very nicely organized and well presented. There authors cover a lot of the divergent aspects of the abduction lore. At the same time there is a personal story interwoven within the overall narrative.

Highly recommended.

Mike Clelland

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

Factual and interesting read

What made the experience of listening to Aliens in the Backyard the most enjoyable?

The scope of recollections from the people involved. This is a very well written, educational book giving factual accounts from credible people. In my opinion, a great read for believers and sceptics alike.

What did you like best about this story?

The variety of information put forward.

What does Kevin Pierce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Kevin Pierce narrates without giving any sense of his own thoughts on what he is narrating. I really like his style!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. Though at 7 hours in length I had to spread it out over an evening and the following morning.

Any additional comments?

There's a lot of info here, and it's definitely worth listening to more than once

Great Book Well Worth It

I was sceptical when i purchased this but thought I would give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised. Having had an interest in this topic for some years now I thought it would not contain much that I had not already heard. I was wrong. There are some fascinating stories and well narrated. Well worth it.
