    Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem, reputed to be the source of the most esoteric knowledge in human history, has fascinated scholars, seekers, and dreamers for centuries. For generations, scholars and researchers have tried in vain to discover the fabled Temple of Solomon, only to be confronted by one problem after another.

    Would you try another book from Philip Gardiner and/or Philip Gardiner?

    Only if it doesn't have the music background. Did not care for it one bit. I choose the book to listen to the narrative not the music (that is not even the kind I like). I found it very distracting and irrevelant to the book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Don't remember!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Philip Gardiner?

    N/A


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

    Again, the music!

    This is the first in-depth book to shed light on a mysterious race known as the Nephilim and to provide evidence of who built the pyramids of Egypt and Mexico, as well as the other great monuments of ancient history. This is the first book to shed light on the dark forces which roamed the earth in those primeval times and will once again be at large during the coming Apocalypse, with the purpose of visiting mass destruction on an unsuspecting world.

    What would have made The Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse better?

    I don't know if its the choices I make (maybe because I am trying the least costly priced books) or what but in all honesty until now I have not found this book or for that matter any of the books I've picked to be to my liking. I'm not saying it's anybody's fault but mine. As I said, maybe because I am picking the least expensive of the books on topics that interest me I am finding them as well the least interesting. But then again, what if I paid more for other books in hopes that they turn out to be more interesting or better and still they are just as boring then I would be doubly upset I guess.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patrick Heron again?

    No, I doubted very much!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    His accent (don't know exactly if Irish, Scottish or Australian? Sometimes I couldn't even understand what he was saying and monotonous tone.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?


    the price?

    There is startling evidence that we were visited by intelligent beings in the ancient past. Why were they here and what was their agenda? Zecharia Sitchin is the author of the hugely successful book series The Earth Chronicles. Join this amazing scholar of ancient mysteries as he makes a scientific and scholarly argument for ancient alien visits to Earth.

    What disappointed you about Ancient Alien Agenda: Aliens and UFOs from the Area 51 Archives?

    Although the topic is really very fascinating and so interesting it kept referring to slides or photos that due to the fact that it's an Audio book you have no way of seeing. I think these were very important to the whole presentation not just what was being said but also what was being shown. In this particular case I would have preferred a book where I can at least look at photos to reference what's being said. Also because this was recorded from a conference, I presume, there are parts that are inaudible as when Jason Martell answers questions. All you hear are just that- the answers but not what was asked. So you miss a lot and leaves a lot to our own interpretation and speculation as to what exactly were the questions.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The facts presented and the topic itself. It's fascinating as I said before.


    What didn’t you like about Zecharia Sitchin and Jason Martell ’s performance?

    There was nothing wrong with either of them to my understanding. It was only what I mention above no pictorials and poor audio.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ancient Alien Agenda: Aliens and UFOs from the Area 51 Archives?

    I would have somehow added either links to view the photos or figured out another way to show what they were referring to.


    Any additional comments?

    No, at this time I will check out a couple more audio books and if I find that these problems are recurring unfortunately I will have to cancel. I really enjoy the concept of audio books and in theory it's great to be able to listen to a book while being able to drive or do something else, but so far my experience with it has not been as good as I expected for the reasons I mention above and the background music on the other review I explained.
