ab'dəktər/ noun, plural noun: abductors
1. a person who abducts another person.
I've never technically read someone's memoirs before. Well, if I've read autobiographies, then I guess I can say Yes, but there's a slight difference. Isn't there? Well, Thomas J. Hay found me on another network for connecting. I love meeting new authors and reading their tales, but when you catch one that makes you question things- that's a good read. What I loved most about this memoir, An Abduction Revelation: The Comeback Kid Returns, I was able to laugh, sing and go "Oooooo!"

An Abduction Revelation is written as the memoirs of Thomas Hay. Written to the themes of various songs, Hay shares his life. His story is amazing, funny, preposterous and down-right hilarious at times. It's also very saddening in spots, making your heart ache at some of his experiences, but everything ties together for a particular experience(s): He'd been abducted.
Okay, so I cracked up at this story from the very beginning, when Tom was getting spanked with every mishap he constructed to when he caught a case of crabs! Without having S-E-X!? Whether this is for real or for fun, I was highly entertained by this book. I sat back on my chaise, with a cup of flavored water and read until I found myself sitting at my desk, closing the book. I read it in a few hours. Some of my most favorite parts were when Hay quoted lines from songs like Caribbean Queen, by Billy Ocean, Achey Breaky Heart, and so many more! He used them in situations that made me feel, this dude and I could be buddies. It made the story just that much more fun.
This story is like watching an episode of The Outer Limits or Twilight Zone. I found I couldn't do anything but continuously turn the pages, wondering when the big zing was gonna hit! Especially when I got to end of Chapter Eleven: The Supplementary. My imagination has always been on of my greatest tools and seeing this all play out was beyond side-splitting. Now I want to read The Comeback Kid.
The entire time I read, I kept asking myself if Hay really believes all this or if he is just joshing as a talented storyteller. I even sent him a message asking if this was a fictional memoir or a memoir with fiction. His responses were classic and fed my joy for the read even more, but I'll never tell... SPOILERS and the lot!
On to the next read!📚
