Review: The Mothman Prophecies

User Review  - Vicki Archileti - Goodreads

I was surprised the book was about about more than the Mothman incident in Point Pleasant. The author covers UFO sightings in the Ohio Valley. All in all I was fairly entertained. And I love the Mothman legend. Read full review

User Review  - Sandra Zack - Goodreads

I love the movie with Richard Gear and got a hold of the book on Thriftbooks. Very well detailed. Quite eerie/spooky at times. A lot more information than the movie. I've been on an aliens/X-files kick lately so this fit in nicely. Read full review
