Consumer Critique: Vostok

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

If you're someone who buys into the idea of extraterrestrial life, or just someone who enjoys to read thrillers, then Vostok by Steve Alten is the book for you. To write the book, he extensively Dr. Greer,  the world's foremost authority on Extraterrestrial Intelligence. Fourteen years ago he organized an event known as The Disclosure Project that was held in Washington, DC, and involved 20 individuals with top secret clearances, including military commanders, pilots, and NASA and FAA officials who testified that UFOs not only exist, but close encounters have actually been documented.

The information gathered has been woven throughout the book, set in Lake Vostok, a glacial lake located beneath two-and-a-half miles of ice in East Antarctica. Three scientists are selected to venture into this underwater realm in a submersible to investigate a powerful magnetic anomaly that has baffled experts for years. No one, especially the scientists, is even remotely prepared for what they find in the depths of this lake. 

Personally, I'm skeptical when it comes to UFOs. But that doesn't mean that I couldn't still enjoy the book for what it was - a well-researched, well-written novel.
