    One thought on “Fire in the Sky: The Walton Experience”

    1. Captivating recounting of the author's alleged alien abduction, with particular focus on social reaction to the encounter and all of the ensuing difficulties. Unlike individual encounters, Walton's is more persuasive due to his six logging crew members verifying the initial sighting of the alien spacecraft and its attack on Walton. Later chapters of the book discuss Walton's frustrations as the book is turned into a screenplay and then a feature film. I am normally very skeptical but I have to a [...]

    2. I'm not going to lie, I skipped some of this one. He's a very pretentious and long winded writer. The most interesting thing about the story was the abduction and that's what he wrote the least about. Skip the book, rent the movie.

    3. Crazy! I thought I was reading a book on the controversial 1975 Alien abduction. Instead, I got a 400 page exposé on modern polygraph methodology. Other lowpoints include subtle evolution denial and jerking off to Ayn Rand. Stop after the first 180 pages to fully enjoy.

    4. If you've only seen the movie, you MUST read the book. Parts are much more different than the movie. The most compelling case of alien abduction ever documented!

    5. I saw the Fire in the Sky movie before I read the book about this unusually well-corroborated alien abduction case. Both are to be recommended to anyone interested in such matters.Alien abduction stories themselves are rather common, as are stories of visiting other dimensions, meeting nonhuman intelligences etc. Most can be assigned to students of altered states of consciousness. What makes the Walton story different is that the original abduction was witnessed by so many. It is one thing for a [...]

    6. Finally finished this book. I feel like I've been aware of this encounter since I was born. I believe that what Mr. Walton wrote about is true. The book is good but does tend to be tedious in the appendix and when Mr. Walton attempts to speculate about the intentions of the aliens and investigators. Overall a good read and account.

    7. Really sorry I wasted my time reading this poorly written book. Everything that was dialogue ended in a question mark, causing me to wonder if the author himself was sure about writing this book or not. Dont waste your time.

    8. A straightforward account of an encounter that defies easy explanation. The movie's great, but really nothing like the real events outside of the abduction in the forest. A good first step for readers into ufology with a very believable case and witness.

    9. I've been interested in this story since I was little, when the incident itself was 15 years old - now it's been 40 years since Travis lost 5 days. My sister and I are fans of Travis and his unchanging story, the movie made about this in 1993 ('Fire in the Sky'), I'm friends with him on facebook and my best friend met him last year in Sydney. I found this book in a Katoomba bookshop and my sister was the first to read it after I got it - I've finally read it after having it for a year.It's a goo [...]

    10. This book highlights an alien abduction that happened where I grew up, so I like it mainly because the author talks about the town where I grew up and the areas I explored as a kid. Kinda nostalgic. The alien abduction part was very disappointing. The whole event took all of 15 minutes. The way the author built it up I was expecting a much more exciting story. The prelude and Chapter 1 were also written to make you feel like a bigot if you didn't believe his story. I thought it was a mildly inte [...]

    11. A very interesting and personal event/story of a UFO abduction case. I hoped there would have been more information about the craft and the time spent there, however, he told what he could recall. The personal story of this event and his roller coaster of emotions is richly told and interesting. Travis seems to be well grounded (sorry for the pun) and highly intelligent. The story comes across as true and authentic.

    12. the saddest thing about this story is that there are many people following ufo gurus that would denounce travis telling him that he got what his spirit deserved and he was asking for it and that he created his own reality these people have no shame but then anything to cover up the harvesting process he illustrates.

    13. The aliens in the movie, though interesting, were a total Hollywood fabrication. Read to book to find out what really happened to Travis while aboard the UFO. All in all, I though the book was quite interesting and informative.

    14. This is an amazing story and to this day those who had the UFO experience claim it all really happened. Readers have to pick this one up. What is out there and how close are aliens to this world?

    15. Amazing story! Captivating experience, amazing how he was able to survive the abduction. Its the only book about alien abduction that I actually got chills down my spine!
