free read Nessie author Nick RedfernIrits are analyzed in regards to the sitings My only complaint is it could use photographs and illustrations it s frustrating when the author is describing a photograph or film clip without any corresponding graphic Otherwise it is highly recommended for those interested in alternative theories on what is happening in the dark waters of Loch Ness Scotland There were a lot of bad reviews on this book but I did not think it was bad The author had lots of thoughts on an off the wall subject I received an e ARC copy of this book through NetGalley and Llewellyn Worldwide
"LtdI Would First Like To "would first like to that I saw the title of this book and was intrigued I did not then nor do I now hold any beliefs about what the Loch Ness Monster is I simply saw a title was curious wanted to read the book and my reuest was granted by the publisherAt the beginning of Nessie beloved Loch Monster of Scotland a mystery that most of us DON T want solving why because we all LOVE a mysteryRight Nick Refern s book is interesting and fun to read According to Nick he thinks there are than one beast n the Loch and they are Shape shifters this is the reason for not always seeing them it Is Nessie a supernatural being or a giant Eel or Pike It can t be a Plesiosaur as these creatures couldn t hold their head s up like the famous pictures would have you believe So if not a long lost dinosa very good book Its about various paranormal events in and around Loch Ness It could be called the Nessie propehcy There ufo men in black odd syncronichity ghosts an exorcist and yes the famous cryptids When you read this book you will likely find that the Nessies are shape shifters instead of flesh and blood Redfern mentions that the cryptid always find a way to elude photograph I ve been a Loch Ness Monster fan since unior high I would spend my lunches reading about Nessie s legends So when I saw that a new book about Nessie was available I reuested a copy I found the connections between Nessie and kelpies to be fascinating to think about The idea that there isn t ust one monster in Loch Ness but an entire species was a lot of fun to think aboutI even got to read some new stories and see some new photos As much as I love Nessie I m not much of a researcher on the topic So Redfern s retelling of a lot of the stories of Nessie as well as the legends of kelpies and wyrms really kept my attention I really do enjoy new takes on these kinds of legends and Redfern really delivers on thatThe last uarter of the book or so kinda lost me It may be that I ve been blessed to not have had many interactions with real magic or it may be that I felt Redfern was pushing me to his conclusions but I found myself continuously thinking that many of the things he was talking about weren t that supportable A number of the connections Redfern makes reuires a belief in things that I don t subscribe to so naturally I had problems keeping my interest up in the last parts of the book I don t argue that Nessie could be a kelpie I don t argue that Nessie could be supernatural I even agree with Redfern that the plesiosaur theory is unsupportable But it seems to me That The Magical Attempts the magical attempts get a good look at Nessie are about as successful as the technological attempts Overall I loved reading all the new stories about Nessie and Scottish kelpies Legends of heroes fighting wyrms and giant worms But if you re not a full believer in all things supernatural ie sorcerers UFOs you may find the ending of the book to be frustrating than anythin.

I chose this book expecting it to be a takedown of the many bizarre theories and explanations surrounding the supposed "loch ness monster instead it posits an even " Ness monster Instead it posits an even theory that Nessie is of supernatural origin and that there may be many of the creatures dwelling in Scotland The book uses very flowery language and laboured expressions almost as if to increase the word count The author uotes Wikipedia rather than whatever source Wikipedia uses and he seems unaware of the concept of an offline encyclopaedia The writing is technically speaking rather poor with words oined by hyphens where they are not normally such as high strangeness and monster film Measurements are given in alternating feet and metres seemingly arbitrarilyI found the information about Aleister Crowley interesting and he reappears throughout the book His London residence a grand townhouse was next door to a building i worked in for several years and I worked in for several years and knew a little about him already but not of a Loch Ness connection However as with much of the book the source material is disputed at best a wiki based website is given as the fount of Crowley information There is at least one completely false if minor assertion in the book that UK Prime Minister Tony Blair was voted out of office in 2007 the implication being this was due to a curse by one Kevin Carlyon Blair was not voted out after long speculation he announced in May 2007 that he would step down the following month which he did If this kind of basic undeniable fact is presented falsely by the author then one has to ask if anything in the work is credible at allAt the very least I give the book one star because it did give me a few giggles at the utter nonsense of it all Nick Redfern has written a book that includes almost every bit of information he could find about Nessie However the chatty writing style isn t particularly coherent with mulitple Mes recettes veggie au robot-cuiseur - 150 ides faciles et rapides ! jumping around the time line and refering to people he had already mentioned or was going to mention later on in the book The author also fails to provide satisfactory proof for his hypothesis though the idea is interesting The lack of illustrationsphotographs in the books especially when the author refers to them is annoying The book is interesting with new to me information but flawed Dive into the Dark and Turbulent Domain of Nessie the World s Most Supernatural MonsterDeep in the black waters of Loch Ness lurks a long necked hump backed monster that for centuries has fascinated those lucky or unlucky enough to see it From the earliest sightings in 565 AD to the Nessie craze of the twentieth century this creature has been steeped in the world of supernatural strangenessJoin Nick Redfern on an excitingourney into the paranormal origins of Nessie exploring ideas that go far beyond the ordinary This comprehensive guide offers lore uniue theories hot spots and photographs Experience firsthand encounters discover how Nessie is connected to the occult and meet other mysterious monsters that live in Loch Ness Nessie presents a fresh approach to the mystery one that will take you down new and sometimes frightening paths as you hunt for the truth What did I think of it4 stars I actually love it even though I give it a four star rating it s definitely on my book wish list if your like me and love to read books that deal with cryptozoologythen you might like this one it talks about Nessie but also talks about the other water type mysterious monsters there are or could be in Loch Ness Plus if you love to.
