Product description

Product Description

When postgrad student Martin Plowman became fascinated by the weird world of UFOs, alien abductions and conspiracy theories, he didn't realise it would lead to an amazing seven-year journey that would take him thousands of kilometres across the world.

In his quest to uncover the mystery at the heart of people's fascination with UFOs, Martin met surprisingly grateful alien abductees in Mexico, reluctant UFO 'witnesses' in Roswell and secretive mountain ufologists in Chile.

Both funny and profound, The UFO Diaries is the kind of book Bill Bryson and Douglas Adams might've written if they'd been abducted on the same flying saucer. Part travelogue, part memoir, part social history, it won't matter whether you believe or disbelieve in UFOs - you'll just be dazzled by your journey into the world of high strangeness.

This is more about travel than UFOs and the people who believe in them. It's essentially a travel memoir set in South and Central America.

3.0 out of 5 stars A UFO romp through the America's 11 July 2011
By Raymond Rowell - Published on
Verified Purchase
Plowmen travels through a series of locals in north america and south american
areas. He uncovers many different types of cultures in different UFO "crop" circles. He doesn't uncover any new insight into UFO'S but does a fair enough job of showing us that the UFO culture is full of a weird and wonderful group of people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the humour in this one! 8 July 2013
By Jacquie - Published on
I read this over a period of a week, and found the humor in the book so refreshing. The topic of aliens and UFO's is one that has intrigued and interested me from a child, but we really don't know who, or what, they are. This was an enjoyable, easy read and wish he'd write the next in the series. Plowman is a wonderful author, and could tackle not just this subject, but many others. (hope he reads these reviews, because I really think he has great potential)
