Ebook ï Raechels Eyes ä Helen Littrell

Raechels Eyes Î Onfront her fears and face the conseuences alone In doing so she was exposed to an alien world existing behind the looking glass an alternate reality just beyond everyday consciousness a world existing and waiting for anyone who dares to look into that mirror and accept what is there It is often said that we have eyes and do not see Marisa was blind but she saw with her heart Her roommate Raechel could see but her eyes held secrets This Truth stranger than fictionThis is an example of a genre that I might call naive literature The term is not necessarily derogative or dismissive Think of it as akin to the primitive in the arts in which we find a great artist at work who is innocent of some of the developments in techniue such as perspective or depth perception Henri Rousseau can be seen as an example of such a deliberate artistOr this book can be compared to an officially unacknowledged genre in the book business Call it fictional nonfiction; that is a book is produced in which the author writes an account of a strange event or series of events that he or she swears actually happened In other words a novel or story presented as nonfiction A famous example is Communion A True Story 1987 originally published by William Morrow and then brought out in paperback by Avon Books Communion which famously or infamously depending on your point of view became a New York Times bestseller is a first person account of an alien encounter written by novelist Whitley Strieber Hailed as Convincing and in many reviews Communion was a compelling narrative allegedly transformed from the writer's personal journal It was only some years after the fact that Strieber confessed that the events were essentially fictionalHere in Raechel's Eyes we have not only an alien encounter of truly astonishing dimensions but in Part II we have a series of hypnotic regressions purporting to support the events in Part I Helen Littrell is hypnotically regressed by Dr June Steiner a graduate of The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology and The American Institute of Hypnosis There are some interviews with others including Helen's husband and her daughter Marisa One thing is clear there is not the slightest chance that Helen Littrell no relation by the way will someday tell us she made this all up She is entirely sincereOf course I am sincere too and have my doubts about the authenticity of her experience or at least about her interpretation of her experience However I have no interest in debunking the regression or uestioning the veracity of Helen Littrell's memories Certainly her story is compelling and engaging I don't even want to uestion the authenticity of anything in this book What I want to do is point to the phenomenon itself to the very human need to transform ourselves from the limited human creatures that we are to something beyond All the alien encounter stories that have flooded the market over the past five or six decades have but one thing driving them that is the expression of a desire to be than humanI believe that many years from now our successors will look back on this time from the middle of the twentieth century onward and recognize the phenomenon of books like Raechel's Eyes as harbingers of our transformation First there is the desire to be other than what we are and then may come the reality In my view this transformation will not come from a hybrid mating with aliens as this book would have it although it may but likely we will meld with the artifacts of our culture through both bioengineering and the development of machine intelligence so that we become cyborgs beings both biological and artificialWill Raechel's Eyes be picked up by say Avon Books and packaged toward bestsellerdom It might but there are some problems First I would say it needs to be cut by about half I get a lot of books by well meaning and even talented amateurs that suffer from the author's mistaken idea that every incident every piece of dialogue every gesture and nuance of expression no matter how trivia must be presented in order I guess to insure some kind of veracity Raechel's Eyes is a splendid if I may example of the overwritten book Yet it may be that the power of Raechel's Eyes I love the spelling of her name lies in the very superfluity of authors' expression Regardless a good editor might cross out the excess verbiage and possibly transform the narrative into something that will capture the imagination of a substantial segment of the book buying public Certainly authors Helen Littrell mother of Marisa the blind girl who becomes Raechel's roommate and freelancer Jean Bilodeaux whose writing skills are evident have put together a most interesting story that will appeal to many readers The ending is striking and dramatically beautifulNonetheless let me cite one of the problems While the authors admit that Conversations are reconstructed from Helen Littrell's memory this admission is inadeuate because not only has the dialogue been augmented to an astonishing degree sometimes approaching clairvoyance but even the inner thoughts of the characters are revealed One is left with the sense that this is an imaginative novel masuerading as THE STRANGE BUT TRUE CASE OF A HUMAN ALIEN HYBRID to uote from the blurb on the coverOne last point There is an interesting subplot involving Helen's relationship with her abusive alcoholic husband and her intense desire to free herself from him This desire is vividly expressed in these italicized thoughts from Helen on page 75 Once we've parked I'll ask him to get the beerWhen he does this I'll reach into my open purse and take out his police Smith and Wesson357 Magnum slip up behind him put the barrel against his head and watch it explode There's no way I can miss at point blank rangeIt might be concluded that Helen was in part driven toward the alien experience by her need to free herself from the dominance of this man she wanted to kill Sometimes our minds find solace in escape and that desire to escape sometimes wonderfully drives our imaginationsOn the other hand perhaps all of this is literally true You be the judge

Helen Littrell ä Raechels Eyes Ebook This is Marisa Littrell’s true story told by her mother Helen Marisa was blind and in order to help with her college expenses she shared her apartment with the mysterious Raechel Marisa became concerned when it appeared that Raechel had no past Little things Raechel said and did aroused frightening suspicions in Marisa which led to conclusions so incredible that she could not tell anyone for fear of being thought crazy Marisa had to c I want to make it exceptionally clear I did not go into this book as a cynic Even if I don’t personally believe in aliens alien hybrids or Star Kids the ideas are fun to entertain and it could even make a good book if handled rightRAECHEL EYES is “true story” about an alien human hybrid as described by someone who “actually” met her It’s divided into two halves the first being a summarized version of how a daughter from a dysfunctional family ended up rooming with a literal alien human hybrid Raechel This narrative shifts between the early 1970s and the mid 1950s and central characters are Marisa the daughter of one of the authors Helen said author Raechel the hybrid and Harry Raechel’s adoptive father The second half of the book is supposed to provide “proof” about Raechel’s existence but it’s mostly about Helen being stalked and traumatically impregnated by aliens among many many other thingsOf course that’s not the point of the book Oh no the story’s malleable as butter as far as Helen Littrell and Jean Bilodeuax are concerned The point of RAECHEL’S EYES is to explain how aliens “really” been interacting with the human race since the 1950s As in the book is intended to be nonfictionThe narrative tries to ground ETs into a workable reality Secret laboratories crashed UFOs lizard men Star Kids Men in Black esue governmental agents everything short of aliens building the pyramids are brought down to earth ha through the experiences of the author of the book Helen and her family It’s one of the few elements of the book that works in theory Raechel’s integration into the human world mirrors that of Helen and thus humanity integrating into the cosmos In a book that’s supposed to be about science versus compassion it could have worked wellHere’s the problem with “true” stories they need to co exist within the time and place they’re set in Unfortunately it’s an even worse problem than usual here However the book can’t even do that much even before we reach can address the possibly of alien lifeWhen details DO appear in RAECHEL’S EYES they’re superficial at best Period appropriate commodities and slang are conspicuously absent Despite most of the key events happening in the early seventies for example the Vietnam War is never mentioned Meanwhile basic facts are often wrong like the day of the Macy’s Day Parade I freuently had to put down the book and do extensive research on things like the 1970s welfare system the history of ESL teaching techniues or treatments for diabetesblindness because even correct details felt wrong in presentation Seeing as the book is supposed to be a very true and very personal story why was no research or even simple fact checking put into the final product If the book is unbelievable it has nothing to do with aliens In order to “confirm” the numerous stories of alien contact the existence of Star Kids etc every coincidence on the planet needed to happen to one specific person and her family in order to function as an intimate tell all It’s an uphill battle to make a story like this convincing let alone plausible enough to pass as “true” That the book already fails before even touching on the story itself isn’t a good sign In literature there’s this concept of the Unreliable Narrator Essentially the unreliable narrator is a device used to make the reader uestion the truthfulness of what they’re being told In certain genres like horror it can be chillingly effective In nonfiction it’s nothing but trouble In the case of RAECHEL’S EYES Helen is extremely unreliable as both an author and a character In Part I she spends all of her time dragging her abusive husband’s name through the mud to the point where she seems completely uninvolved in any of extraterrestrial events surrounding her daughter In fact Raechel and Helen share almost no dialogue and it’s made worse by the fact that Helen’s version of events in Part II freuently contradicts changes or completely invents new events that happened in Part I to the point that it’s impossible to determine which narrative is supposed to be the “true” storyEven Helen’s excuses for knowing certain things can’t stay consistent For exampleIn Part I a few things are explained to HelenIn Part II Helen originally claims that some of the events of Part I actually happened to herThen she claims Marisa told her everything off cameraThen she claims Raechel toldshowed her everythingThen she claims Raechel’s adoptive father showedtold the facts to herThen she says that Marisa was ALSO a magical alien hybrid baby and motherdaughter share a long distance psychic connectionThen she just says that Marisa merely told her everything againNote that I’m not defining what Helen was told mostly because she can’t be bothered either Even ignoring the improbity of some of those claims it’s never clear how much information was discovered by Helen firsthand how much of it was secondhand how she discovered it and when Important facts are hidden under a deluge of reiterations of the events of Part I and flashbacks involving evil female doctors and psychic birds People who have never before been introduced suddenly have in depth knowledge about Raechel or met her in person despite their complete absence in Part I No timeline is ever established in either section of the bookTo paraphrase a uote Littrell and Bilodeaux do seem to understand that writers sometimes include contradictory facts or opinions to strength their own argument but they haven’t uite grasped why When people other than Helen describe Raechel it sounds like they’re describing a completely different person from Helen The non Helen Raechel had food allergies oddly colored skin and oddly large eyes but the similarities end there She doesn’t even wear the giant sunglasses that Helen spent over 300 pages ranting about In the accounts from the friends and family of Marisa Raechel left after a suicide attempt—that’s all No explanation is ever given for the discrepancies The primary “evidence” of Helen’s truthfulness are the hypnotic sessions she undergoes for years to remember the “truth” that she’s repressed from herself While there are many legitimate uses of hypnotism in modern psychology the use of it to deal with repressive memories has been highly criticized for decades As such every single sentence within Part II has to be called into uestion This book was written in 2004 long after the infamous false memoryabuse cases that peppered the 80s and 90s The authors should have known damn well that even if everything in the transcribed logs are completely true that the hypnotism sessions are not reliable evidence to present to the world Even ignoring the hypnotism memories aren’t always factual to begin withIf I had to choose one singular piece of media to contrast to RAECHEL’S EYES I would point to the MOTHMAN PROPHECIES It’s the perfect book to showcase why and where the narrator of RAECHEL’S EYES fails Where the MOTHMAN PROPHECIES uses numerous and sometimes conflicting accounts to discuss UFO sightings and strange phenomena RAECHEL’S EYES solely uses a mother’s interpretation of her daughter’s and their friend’s experiences There’s no outside source to collaborate or the statements made by anyone who’s not Helen—not even that of the woman in the middle of it all the daughter herself “These interviewsletters I’m allegedly transcribing totally exist because I say so” simply isn’t a compelling standpointI genuinely try not to spoil books but there’s one last major factor in Helen’s unreliable authorship There’s a reason that the daughter isn’t around to verify her mother’s story Marisa died before the book was published One of the central figures in this in entire story and she can’t even confirm or deny the actions and opinions attributed to her in the book We have no way of knowing if Helen’s account of her daughter’s blindness or abusive home life even accurately reflect Marisa’s experiences either It reflects badly on Helen especially in the context of how the book was written Part II begins with Helen wondering if Marisa ever existed She evidently has no concern over forcing her daughter’s family into reliving her tragic death during interviews She admits to never wanting Marisa and had difficultly connecting to the girl as a baby Despite this Marisa’s POV chapters are freuently spent praising her mother page after page which I found suspicious even before the reveal Now they’re downright disturbing Taken in conjunction with the fact that Marisa’s real name wasn’t used in the book—a step usually taken to distance the living from a particular work—I have to assume that she did not want to be associated with her mother’s work even if it is accurate Her mother made damn sure that we’d never know eitherThere are many morally uestionable things in this world that I can tolerate in both life and literature The exploitation of the dead is not one of themFuck This BookAs much as I would like to end the review there I can’t Even if taken as fiction and the disgusting morals of one of the two authors ignored outright the book fails completely Almost everything could be forgiven if the book was written well enough to overcome the hurdles placed before it The idea that the government discovered aliens and then said aliens’ children grew up during the Cold War is a novel premise With enough nuance could even be presented as possible fact That hope died on the first page where the most unconvincing introduction in the universe crash landed into the book and the subpar writing uality refused to leaveLook if you can’t convince me that a college freshman saw a counselor about campus housing you’re probably won’t convince me aliens existAs I mentioned before for example there’s no clear timeline Both parts of the book jump around between the 1950s 1960s and the 1970s with little to no indicators when a particular moment is taking place Key events and conversations are skipped entirely for seemingly no reason The second half of the book is the worst in this regard as Helen’s interviewer changes topics at random with no indication as to why The logs are a jumbled mess and their transcription is hard to follow due to the constant miscommunication fragmented sentences and Helen’s constant abuse of pauses denoted by ellipses I’m not even sure that Helen knows what’s going on most of the timeThere’s another concept in writing called “Show Don’t Tell” which refers to showing a scene rather than telling the readers about it Unfortunately neither author seem to know how to do this We’re freuently told how things are such as when Marisa and Raechel first meet the reader is just supposed to accept that “hit it off like sisters” despite neither having a single conversation recorded with one another We’re supposed to accept that the logs of part two are completely and wholly accurate despite no evidence to the contrary We’re supposed to accept Helen has impeccable knowledge of secret government experiments despite her freuent lapses in memory about everything else On a side note one of the few outside sources used to confirm the story is a letter supposedly from the university that Raechel attended which confirms that a student named Racheal—note the misspelling—had been enrolled there in 1972 You’d think the authors would have gotten the hybrid’s name right; it’s only in the title of the freaking bookRegardless of her name I have to give credit where credit is due In Part I Raechel might come off as a cliché “too good for this sinful Earth” beacon of purity but for some reason it works There’s this aura of bittersweet nostalgia interwoven into her character and her naïve innocence perfectly contrasts against the very real and very dark world that she’s been briefly thrust into The way she hides herself in plain sight is clever—in what decade other than the 70s could someone get away with big sunglasses and full body jumpsuits —and her heartbreak at others reactions to her true appearance feels sincere The dissonance between setting character and culture works strongly in her favor Good job book you literally did one thing rightUnfortunately I struggle to find any words to describe a single person who plays a central role in the story The “good” characters are generically kind and the “bad” characters are such one note villains that they wouldn’t be out of place in a Saturday morning cartoon show Even Raechel can’t stay the same as she turns from a sweet if naïve girl in Part I into a cruel monster in Part II for no conceivable reason If the “strange but true” claim cover is to be believed every single person in the book should be real They should all have uniue and consistent strengths flaws and beliefs However there’s nothing to distinguish anyone’s personality outside of their role or situation It only extenuates the problem when “real” interviews of multiple people all read with the same voice and tone as one anotherEveryone aside from the Irredeemable Abusive Husband the Corrupt Cops Who Brag in Front of Civilians About Being Drug Dealers yes really this happens the Evil Men in Black and the Evil Female Doctor acts like their primary functions are to praise the author Helen Littrell whenever she appears The aliens even adore her from birth because she’s one of the few rare super special humans in the whole world It’s creepy and inherently dishonest ego boosting Yet her actual actions amount to plotting to kill her husband settling for threatening his entire career instead if he crosses her shows no remorse for probably driving a girl to attempt suicide freuently refers to said girl as being soulless openly admits to not loving her children and clearly twisted the facts to her advantage every chance she had when writing the book But it doesn’t matter if RAECHEL EYES is approached as fiction or nonfiction it’s objectively nothing The reader is expected to shovel in all this shit without uestion RAECHEL’S EYES is disrespectful to its readers on every level and that’s unforgivable The sooner I forget about this dreck the better
