Publisher's Summary

Discover an alternate history to the human race as the authors of Forbidden Archeology challenge one of the most fundamental components of the modern scientific world view. Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson discuss the work of researchers who, over the past 2 centuries, have found bones and artifacts showing that people like ourselves existed on earth millions of years ago. They explain how the scientific establishment has ignored these remarkable facts because they contradict the dominant views of human origins and antiquity.

    "Narrator's voice was monotone"

    The narrating sounded very robot like and made it difficult to focus on the story. It also states that it is 2Hrs 30min long but when it started it showed 1hr48 min on my mp3 player.

    I am a fan of both fiction and non-fiction with a recent bias toward fiction, possibly due to my history background. ]

    "Interesting"

    This book makes some interesting points but it would be better if you had the written version so you could check the sources. There are a lot of sources. It reminds us of a lesson that all sciences should pay attention to. Don't get locked into a particular interpretation of the facts. Leave room for further discoveries. Seems obvious but apparently it still happens all the time. And not just in archeology.
    The audio quality is not as good as other audible books. I have to adjust the speakers in my vehicle to hear the woman's voice over road noise. And as other reviewers have noted she does a poor job of reading. She sounds like a spokesperson for a large bank. She must be getting paid by the word, she seems to be in a hurry to get through it.
    Audio is disconcerting but the information is still worth it.

    Story
    "Extremely interesting subject falls flat"
    What would have made Forbidden Archeology better?

    A more lively narrator would have helped keep me from falling asleep. The information and subject matter is compelling enough that I'd recommend this book to anyone, but the delivery was dry and the narration did little to improve that fact. I'd have enjoyed hearing more of the authors voice in the writing. Instead this was just a compilation of facts that reads like a dry book report.


    What could Michael A. Cremo and Richard L. Thompson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The writing could have been more narrative in style, offering more of the authors' voice. The book meanders almost aimlessly from one anecdote to another. The story line of this book reads like a slow walk on the open salt flats. A real snore.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator did very little to enliven the already flat read. It was all I could do to pay attention through the monotony.


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

    The subject matter is extremely engaging and compelling. Had it been written by a truly talented author it would have been one of the most exciting books I've read.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd like my money back.

    "Forbidden Archeology"

    The information in this book is explosive to the standard archeological understanding. When you read this you will be ashamed of the coverup that science has put over on us for over a hundred years. After listening to the book I am now going to purchase the hard copy. What every your view about evolutionary theory you owe it to yourself to get this. Some of the information I had heard before but chapter after chapter gave me new facts to explore. I have listened to it now several times. It is great. I hope Audible will offer Cremo's new book on the impact of the 1998 publication in the scientific community.

    "So so"

    narrator sounded muffled and there are plenty of other books that cover the same sort of information that are much easier to follow.

    "Contents do not justify sensational book title."

    The book provides good archaeological information but the title seems to be a false claim. Nothing dramatic or eye opening enough to justify the book title 'Forbidden Archaeology'.

    "Audible should not promote false science"

    I must have been daft to download twaddle like this, especially with such a trashy title. I am not sure if it is all fiction concocted from nineteenth century speculations on dating or just a cynical effort at disinformation.
