This book recounts the author’s contacts with extraterrestrials through a disciplined type of mental telepathy called “scientific remote viewing.” It presents the oral interpreter with a considerable challenge. First, the prose is, by design, dry and detached. Second, many people will meet the author’s assertions with skepticism or dismissal. Fairness demands that the oral interpreter accept the text at face value, assuming the author’s tone of rigorous objectivity without indulging in any hint of advocacy or irony. Connor O’Brien accomplishes this and still avoids sounding like a robot. Even cast as a scientific report, Brown’s story is colorful. Whether it reflects a reality outside his own mind remains to be seen. J.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 97]
