An intriguing investigation of the government's knowledge of aliens and extraterrestrials. I knew that the book couldn't offer any hard core proof that aliens existed or have visited Earth, as the book was written 20 years ago and we're still searching for alien life, but I was still a bit disappointed that there wasn't any shocking evidence in regards to events such as the discovery of the MJ-12 documents. However, the book was meticulously researched and after reading it, I am certain that the government knows much more than it's letting on. Blum's foreshadowing was quite obvious at times (eg. "It wasn't until later that he realized what the clues were telling him"), yet it was extremely effective. Who wouldn't keep reading to find out what secrets the government's been keeping from us? I was thrown off by Blum's writing style, as he awkwardly tried to combine hard journalistic writing with narrative elements more often found in novels. This, I believe, is partially a by-product of his desire to provide all of the facts, but as a fiction reader and writer, I grew weary of his clumsy attempts at characterization. However, the book is an intriguing read, and opens the door for even more questions about the existence of extraterrestrial life.
Review: Out There: The Government's Secret Quest for ExtraterrestrialsUser Review - Goodreads
This is an older book that took a lot of research and showed that the government is more secretive and stupid than we even thought. It seems no one knows anything about UFOs and it all a big secret. Hmmm.
