Publisher's Summary

The Encyclopedia of Ancient Giants in North America chronicles two distinct waves of giant humans migrating to North America. As early as 7,000 BC, strange people arrived on the North American shores of gigantic size with Neanderthal-looking skulls. Their spread across the American landscape is documented not only by their massive skeletons but by an identical material culture that was found buried with their remains. Double rows of teeth and skulls with protruding horns make them one of America's most intriguing mysteries.

At the advent of the Bronze Age, another migration of giant humans found their way to North America. A persistent legend exists with Native Americans of a people who came to trade and mine the copper from the Upper Great Lakes. They left an indelible mark upon the landscape of the Ohio Valley with their large burial mounds and earthworks aligned to solar, lunar, and stellar events. The measurements of these works reveal that they were constructed with the knowledge of advanced mathematics. The discovery of giant humans in North America is the result of pouring through over 10,000 state, county and township histories at one of the largest genealogical libraries in America. Hundreds of additional accounts were also found within newspaper archives.

Horrible narration and sloppy editing

This is the worst narrator I've ever heard on an audible book. She sounded most of the time like one of those computer voices on your gps unit that tries to sound human but doesn't quite succeed. And she CONSTANTLY mispronounces words. The other issue I have with this book is the incredibly sloppy editing. Every few passages it completely repeats entire paragraphs that I just heard moments before. And occasionally the narrator reads a sentence and then immediately re-reads it, but with different pronunciation of words or different inflection of voice. It's like whoever the editor was just took the raw audio file submitted by the narrator and published it without doing any editing whatsoever. All these issues are highly unfortunate because the content of the book is really interesting and I wanted to hear it. But between the narrator and sloppy editing I was not able to really enjoy the book. :(

North Americian giants

Would you consider the audio edition of The Encyclopedia of Ancient Giants in North America to be better than the print version?

I prefer audio books because I can get about my daily life and enjoy a book at the same time.

Have you listened to any of Heather Elizabeth Lynn Farrar’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Her performance is good. She mispronounces a word a couple times, but that's not the end of the world.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Giants were real... and they lived in your own backyard...

Any additional comments?

There's a lot of great information in this book.

Terrible audio book!

What didn’t you like about Heather Elizabeth Lynn Farrar’s performance?

Really terrible robotic reading, completely ruined any interest in the material.

Any additional comments?

Constant references to photos contained in the hard copy book isnt helpful in an audiobook!
