    Never afraid to put forward controversial theories if justified by the data, Erich von Daniken here examines the huge amount of accumulated evidence that points to Earth having been subject to countless visits from extraterrestrials for many years. The dawn of a new century, the building of a new space station, and triumphs in the exploration of space have brought greater interest than ever in the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

    Would you try another book from Erich von Daniken and/or Arthur Morey?

    I find this unlikely.


    Have you listened to any of Arthur Morey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but his performance was the best part of this book.


    Was The Return of the Gods worth the listening time?

    It's not fantastic. I'd say the chances of enjoying the book are about equal to your chances of finding it trite and annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    This guy has a naive and childish view of the human condition, religion, and the situation we find ourselves in at this present time. He tries to boil the complex issues we face as humans as being caused merely by human stupidity, and not the complicated and nuanced factors that are truly at play. He views aliens as our saviors, and in one chapter from their point of view we see that they are equally as naive and short sighted as he is, and share his almost comically bleak view on humanity. This book is comprised almost entirely of vague conjecture. It is about as illuminating as an episode of Ancient Aliens. If that interests you then I'd give it a go. If not you can probably find content of an equal quality for free on youtube.
