"This is a most enjoyable read, touching on matters of huge questions in science and religion, including UFOs, organized Christianity and their relationship. Also addressed are the place of the military, the phenomena of synchronicity and ultimate motives by beings. I had a hard time putting it down. Although fictitious, the book is based on real events and experiences. Some of the historical events mentioned are factually correct. Many of the places and events mentioned in the book resonated personally with me; I'm inclined to believe it was more synchronicity than just coincidence. The author is also working on a prequel to the book, but enjoy this one now."
"This book deals with many issues such as religion, politics, relationships and the unknown. It is so well thought out and researched that if I wasn’t a true believer in the beginning, I certainly was at the end. It gives an interesting look at complex issues and gives them meaning. I was hooked all the way through which surprised me as I have never been into this kind of genre. However, this is a mixture of fiction and factual occurrences which you can tell Paul has put his all into studying. I would highly recommend this book to anyone."
"Interesting first novel by someone who might know too much about the subject....
Turns what could be just an ordinary band of misfit UFO enthusiasts gathering to enjoy each others company and talk about their favorite hobby no one else believes in into... ...into an action-packed, nearly out-of-control adventure, deep, deep into the bowels of just what are THEY hiding.
A very entertaining SF read. If you're a fan of heady, contemplative, yet cinematic SF writing, you'll enjoy this book."
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Very exciting plot that makes it hard to put the book down, with well developed characters, great action sequences, and scene descriptions that pull you into the story. You can tell the author is very experienced with architectural and military details that bring the story to life and makes the events more realistic and accurate to what really could happen under certain circumstances, and how people would react to those events. What I enjoyed the most was how it made me think about how we live and interact, and how far we have to go to collectively become a more wise and peaceful race. Highly recommend picking this up and I'm looking forward to his next book!"
"The Disclosure Paradox Kindle Edition by Paul Vecchiet, I awarded five stars, and here’s why. First the book began as an ongoing research or human journey project. Perhaps triggered by an experience or an encounter with our perceived unknown view of existence. Ho-hum, much of the stuff I knew or have somewhat forgot, so I remembered. But, a close kindred to my own quest that began perhaps over four decades ago. Then, I saw a story peeking through. I became more interested, and the story unfolded from there. There is a strong message here for readers with an apparent urgency to find the answer. Answer to what? Well that is personal with each individual, and you will have to read The Disclosure Paradox, to discover for yourself. I highly recommend the book."
"This book takes a very creative approach at merging several seemingly disparate issues into an integrative alternative reality. Readers will find many ideas that they're familiar with, including religion, paramilitary and special forces, and UFO phenomena interwoven and explained from a different perspective. If you enjoy stories like "Wicked" or "Marley", which tell us a totally different version of what was actually happening in a familiar story, then you'll love this book.
Most of the characters are well developed and some actually quite multidimensional and engaging. The story flows well, and gets the reader rather engaged with the action.
Many other readers have commented that the last chapter was their favorite. It wasn't for me, as it basically was a "Deus-ex-Machina" device used of necessity to tie many of the important story lines together in a cohesive summation. It was, as I said, necessary and important. The paradox actually makes sense if you accept the thought provoking premise of the story.
If you're uncomfortable with having your Judeo-Christian faith challenged, don't read the book. But as a devout born-again Christian, I am glad I did read it, even though many things I hold dear were questioned in a manner reminiscent of the first century Gnostics. And I'm not saying this with any intent of denigrating the book. Quite the contrary. It's an innovative and creative effort that is both enjoyable and thought provoking."
"You don't have to believe in UFO's to appreciate this book. It is well written, suspenseful and it will open your mind to a new reality. Mixes science and spirituality in a special way. We have to evolve beyond our divisions and aggressiveness if we want to join the galactic community."
"I think Vecchiet’s book Disclosure Paradox is an emotional book about the coming together of a group of friends who unite to find answers to the nightmares of their friends. Some who even had babies taken from them when they were still in their mother’s womb. I was intrigued with the women in the story who did have their babies taken from them in the night. I can relate to that because someone I knew had it happen to her. She went to bed pregnant one night and woke up in the morning not pregnant (with pictures of her pregnant on her dresser). It happens and Paul Vecchiet does justice in his book as they search for answers and missing babies now grown, that their mothers never got to hold. Children now grown that were removed from their wombs by extra-terrestrials."
" I got the free preview from Amazon. I had thought, oh gee just another self publisher with a ho hum novel, but I was pleasantly surprised. The book is extremely well written, it captivated my interest from the start and I can't stop reading it now. I'm ordering it asap."
"By the way, blown away by the book! I've finished it. Unbelievable. The references to angels, Jesus, the Bible, very thought provoking. Ending was great. Made me pause to realize that's a forecast for what I just read! Characters are well thought out. Felt the despair for the mothers and their "unborn"
Mr. Vecchiet’s characters are written with passion and emotion ... his story draws you in right from the start! It’s a great tale of a man whose desire to find truths brings him from a quiet existence into heroism ... I sure can’t wait to read what he writes next!
"Read the book yesterday cover to cover. Went to bed at 1 am. Couldn't put my phone down. You captured our suburban Chicago childhood to a tee. And, we've known each other so long I saw a ton of you in Louis. We will have to compare notes on Ancient Aliens, Stargate and religious explanations of advanced tech. With all the data and texts in ancient India, I was hoping for some reference to Viema's and / or the stories on the alien sky battles. Awesome book, awesome story, and I enjoyed it very much."
"Couldn't put it down. References to religion very thought provoking. The characters come to life as you read. Highly recommend!"
"Premise is very intriguing, joining conspiracy theories and science fiction with spiritual beliefs on multiple levels. Even though the story follows Louis as the main character, you still learn a good deal about the other characters as the story progressed. Would like to see the story continue for Louis, and MaryEllen’s characters and well as the colonel."
" I finally got around to finishing this book. It is amazing to me how I can still feel and be touched by something that resonates deep within me. Crying does not come easy these days, hardened by horrific events in my life and horrific behavior. At the end of this book, I was crying. I don't want to spoil the contents of this book for those who have not read it yet. I have spent my whole life from reading age on up in how to be a better human and serving the light side of humanity. My brother was a UFO abductee. My father was at Roswell because Admiral Forrestal sent him out there. There were times I gave up and said to myself "Why bother?". Why bother with self improvement, why bother researching out the fringe?, why throw yourself out there only to be ridiculed, lied about, hurt? It is up to all of us to do our homework and choose the future we want for this planet. This book is fictional but based on true people with true abilities and situations. I am so deeply grateful and humbled...and honored to be around the select characters.
This book is the wind beneath my wings. Like the mythological Phoenix, I rise from my ashes to once again take flight."
"Knowing that the fictional characters were based on real people and hearing about some of these people in the distant past was exciting to me. This book keeps your interest throughout and I was in tears at the end. The old saying of "Truth is stranger than fiction"...definitely applies. I learned quite a few things that were more truth than fiction. I would love to read more from this author. This story definitely lends itself to a series. I want to know more about the characters."
"The Disclosure Paradox is an extremely gripping book. It truly captures your attention from beginning, chapter after chapter. I was , as surely you will be, yearning to find out what will happen next. The action , written as a journey, builds with every page! The characters are so well developed, to the point that you can picture each of them , not only individually, but also as they progress on the journey. Even for someone, like myself, who is not really into science fiction, The Disclosure Paradox is fascinating and very thought provoking! Paul Vecchiet truly wrote an amazing book. I hope that there will be a new one to follow soon! To conclude , I highly recommend this book to anyone into Science Fiction , Spirits, etc! Enjoy!"
"I'm so glad I didn't have anything pressing to do, because once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. It's characters are very relatable. I'm waiting for a sequel!!"
"If you want a different twist on anything you've ever read about extraterrestrials this is the book for you.
Many years ago, Jimmy Carter said he'd release everything the government had on UFO's if he was elected President of the United States. If you want a glimpse, a reason, or any insight as to why Carter ultimately refused citing 'defense implications', you should probably read this book. Ultimately, Mr. Vecchiet exposes an irony about the human condition, a fallacy if you will, about the greatest threat we face, ourselves."
