History & Speculative Science
I used to abhor the brutal conquest and massive erasure of the meso-American history and culture promulgated by pious and marauding Spaniards who breached Yucatan shores. But this work lays a sufficient backdrop for Aztec and Mayan history that can't discount how their own religious beliefs and compulsions exacted such large scale ritual human sacrifice among themselves indelible to the region.I appreciate the blending of history lesson with the open minded speculative science--such as trans Atlantic and Atlantian influences migrating to Mexico--along with the timeliness of the the subject matter.
Unfortunately the voice talent reading "2012" is all too Caucasian & wholly unsuited for narration of this title. A moderate command of the Spanish language would have helped the narrator immensely with the proper pronunciation of the multiple meso-American place names and proper Spanish names that riddle the text. This ill-fated reading hinders the authorship and the listeners' approach to the subject matter further distancing us from these mythical lands and the relevance foretold.
