    "Something here really stinks to high heaven," writes Erich von Däniken. "In Twilight of the Gods," says von Däniken, "I document precisely what it was that left the first visitors breathless as they stood before the mighty stone blocks some 400 years ago. I will show you what archeologists discovered hundreds of years ago and demonstrate how much has been destroyed over the centuries. Intentionally.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I read "Chariots of the Gods" when it was first published. That book was ground-breaking and paradigm-changing. If the author spent less time in the preface of this book bragging about what he had written before and more time setting up the sparse new material and the rehash of decades-old hypotheses, I may have had a more receptive attitude. As it was, I found that his dismissal of current interpretations that correct the early-twentieth-century errors ludicrous. Sorry that an investigative author with such promise has fallen to the standards of tabloids and talk radio.


    What could Erich von Daniken have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?


    What three words best describe Kirby Heyborne’s voice?

    common talking head


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Twilight of the Gods?

    I wouldn't have published it, other than to make money to save the jobs of the employees of my publishing house.

    The complete 550 page epic historical novel covering the entire life of Hatshepsut, the ancient Egyptian queen who was crowned king and for more than twenty years ruled on the Horus Throne of the Living as the Female Falcon, Maatkare. The name she chose for herself can be read as Maat is the Ka of Re, which translated means The True and Beautiful Manifestation of the Sun's Divine Life-force. A more poetic but still accurate rendition is Truth is the Soul of the Sun.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I was looking forward to this story, but after a half hour of the narrator, I put the story down I will never enjoy this fictional story of Hatsheput because the reader was so poor. Not sorry that I bought the book, just sorry that I can't bear to listen to more than 15 min of the narrator.
