i have to start with i didn't finish the book i only got about half way through but this is what i foundthe book is deluted to fantacy, even by Darwin later in life a person he uses in part to form this book.The merging of bad science, emotion and part truths leaves a person wundering about fact checking
No he gives part truth making him unbelievable
This book gave me a new perspective on history as a. whole. I don't think most people would agree on a lot of the ideas the author has provided, but I think overall the history makes sense. And John Lee really makes the book sound like he's telling of a conspiracy. I love it!
I feel this book relied too much on one theroy and manipulated actual history to fit his theory
Maybe, I could be persuaded if it was another subject. His writing was clear and points made, they just didn't fit with actual history
I liked the narrator's reading. He did make the book more enjoyable
I did think the author has an interesting writing style. It was more the subject matter that I didn't enjoy. I love a good conspiracy theory, but his alternative history just couldn't be woven into actual facts.
Say something about yourself!
Interesting subject! Nice introduction to alternative Bible "stories". Can open your mind to pursue other esoteric studies.
Favorite character? The different gods and Gods! The corresponding myth!
All of it. Like his voice and pronouncing the words which were difficult to read!
Same headline as the book1
Not for bible toting individuals. Could be very scary for them!
I love John Lee as a narrator, though he could not save this boring book.
Provide more content and facts.
Yes many. Noble House and Tai Pan are brilliant.
On level 5 of Robot Hell
What I joy the most is it a great source to mine material if one is playing in a roleplaying game or writing a script and need crazy material.
Yes I would. He did a very good job making some of the more farcical content of this book sound more serious and digestible. He added a conversational, tempting tone.
I could see a History Channel special or mini series. I think there's just too much presented in this book. Slices could be pulled out and made into movies but there the book as a whole could not function as a movie.
This book is fallaciously titled. If you are interested in an amalgamated mythology of all the earth's cultures, this book is for you. Otherwise prepare to be dowsed in rhetorical certainties strung together with a haphazard and tenuous thread of self-aggrandizing delusions. I enjoy mythology and religious history quite a bit. I would also consider myself open to all avenues of spiritual awareness. Unfortunately this book is shot through with so much contradiction and presumption as to make it unbearable in its presentation as historical fact and only menially enjoyable as this fiction it is. If you want some fool telling you how and why humans exist -- buy this. If you want history about secret societies and some authority on their beliefs -- go join one.
. . . or, at least, find a better book.
