It took me a couple chapters before I started liking it. Dozens and dozens of short stories from kids that left home during the depression, thinking that their parents would be better off without them. Jumping on a train and heading off to”a better place” Wow! What a different time, some of these kids were 12 years old. Such a tough generation, now we’re a bunch of weak wussies .

I love this kind of stuff, but after I bought the book, I ran into a lot of info about Sitchin. Most of the info is saying the author has been very misleading, a few saying, he’s completely making things up. So, I’m lost.
I understand arguments from both sides, but a few of the people calling Sitchin out are also believers in Ancient visitors.
So I’m confused, but I have to give this two thumbs down

I love most of this authors books. This one is written as, sort of a tail or bed time story. It just didn’t work for me.

Graham does it again, another great book! My third book from Graham. If you're interested in ancient history/ societies, here’s your book. Graham goes in to great detail, which to me can sometimes be overwhelming, and too much. I guess Graham really wants to get his message across. But I love the info and appreciate his work.
I would love to meet him and give him my thanks for his work.

After seeing the Circle in concert; and the band blew me away, I was interested in finding out more about Sammy. I enjoyed the book greatly. A very humble guy. The book reads as if you were just hanging with Sammy and he started telling you about his life. What a great attitude and respect for human life. Long live Sammy, and The Circle. Michael Anthony also blew me away at the concert

This is my 4th rock star bio. Sorry, Warrens writing didn’t do it for me. I can’t explain, I kept my finger on the 30 second advancing button and pushed it often. By the 8th chapter, things got better for me, only because the book got into all the very interesting people in Toms life, so I stayed with the book. The narrator is the worst, I don’t know if he’s high or if he thinks it would be cool to tell a story sounding high. But you can fix it by speeding him up by .50. I put three stars since I couldn’t do two and a half

A true classic. Brilliantly written. There were a couple choices of this book, I’m glad I picked this one. The narrator was fantastic, at one point, I was on the boat , fighting bad weather as we braved our way through the ocean, trying not to hit icebergs. This was truly a time when men were men.
