Publisher's Summary

The Assassination of JFK, 9/11, The Da Vinci Code, The Death of Diana, Men in Black, Pearl Harbor, The Illuminati, Protocols of Zion, Hess, The Bilderberg Group, New World Order, Elvis Fluoridization, Martin Luther King's murder, Opus Dei, The Gemstone Files, John Paul I, Dead Sea Scrolls, Lockerbie bombing, Black helicopters...In other words everything 'they' never wanted you to know and were afraid you might ask!

Jon E. Lewis explores the 100 most terrifying cover-ups of all time, from the invention of Jesus' divinity (pace The Da Vinci Code) to Bush's and Blair's real agenda in invading Iraq. Entertainingly written and closely documented, the book provides each cover-up with a plausibility rating.

Uncover why the Titanic sank, ponder the sinister Vatican/Mafia network that plotted the assassination of liberal John Paul, find out why NASA 'lost' its files on Mars, read why no-one enters Area 51, and consider why medical supplies were already on site at Edgware Road before the 7/7 bombs detonated.

Just because you are paranoid, it doesn't mean that they aren't out to conspire against you.

An Interesting and Fun Read.

The title intrigued me so I bought the book! I really did not know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised! There were a lot of facts presented that were previously unknown to me. The alert Levels at the end of each "conspiracy theory" story was quite entertaining and spot on as far as believability. Take a chance on this one!

Disinformation = Disservice 🍋 Shill Alert!

Jon Lewis? A worthless hack exploiting the conspiracy realist market for profit. He leaves out key facts that would otherwise make the case about what's really going on in this warped world of ours. He shamelessly ridicules truth at the listeners expense. This title is accurate as the book itself is a cover-up of the very theories it's purporting to expose. Swill from a Shill. Beware of his other books they no doubt have the same derailment from the path of truth. You'll find far better info on the web for free.

Gave me a headache

This is a disappointment. It gives very little information before the annoying alert blares out to signal a transition between two 4-minute chapters. When I realized that it will probably blare every few minutes in this 12 hour book, I stopped.

Either don't buy this book, or get some aspirins because you will get a headache.

great content terrible narration.

Would you try another book from Jon E. Lewis and/or Peter Marinker?

The saliva sloshing around in the readers mouth makes listening to this book absolutely unbearable.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

This book contains the entire content of the Mammoth book of missing persons and mysterious deaths and I presume also the same content from all the other mammoth books by the same author.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Marinker?

anyone else!

Could you see The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Sure why not.

Any additional comments?

Could have been greatly improved by some basic production values.

Interesting and good overall.

The book was good overall. It discusses a lot of conspiracy theories as it suggests. The one downside is that with discussing so many, it doesn't investigate each one very deeply. Still, it was enjoyable and informative.

Waste of time.

Didn't care for this book at all. British reader is hard to understand. The alert level warning at the end of the chapter is silly and hard to understand.

well written but overtly dismissive

Would you try another book from Jon E. Lewis and/or Peter Marinker?

the author basically dismisses the bulk of conspiracy evidence. the killer: "the mass of evidence regarding 911 clearly points to al queda and osama bin ladin." unbelievalbe.

Should have read the other reviews first

Would not have bought the book if I had read many of the other reviews first. Shortcuts too many of the issues and has not done enough research to look for the truth regarding 9/11 in particular.

For sciences deniers

If you are a sciences denier and climate change conspiracy supporter, you will love this book.

Stories with absolutely no scientific evidence to back up. I thought there would be scientific background. And that is precisely why I was curious. Absolutely none.

They refer to books and reports. Which , honestly, anyone can write a book about elephant flying with yoga pants .....

Summary of every conspiracy you can think of

This book covers most major cover ups with a base summary of each of them, I've used this book mostly to find conspiracies I'm interested in with a hope to find an audiobook covering the specific conspiracies in more details.
The most popular conspiracies are near the start of the book and then has a lull around the 65 chapter mark mostly talking about assassinations of lesser known government types, it does pick up towards the end few chapters again.

it also has an alert system after every conspiracy saying how plausible each conspiracy is, I assume according to the author, though some of them where higher than I expected given the evidence presented in the book.

Fascinating

An easy-to-listen-to audio book which steps from one chapter to the next each time addressing a new conspiracy and weighing the evidence with a conclusion at the end of each.

Lots of new stuff here to get you teeth into.

Nice compilation of stories.

What did you like most about The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups?

A great compilation but very annoying alarm sound after each one.

Any additional comments?

Would be really good if that annoying alarm sound was removed.

Mystery and Intrigue at High Level

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Only as an introduction to Conspiracies

What did you like best about this story?

Relatively short sections introducing well known cover-ups

What does Peter Marinker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Easy to listen style.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It was all interesting.

Any additional comments?

I liked the book, though I did feel that the author did not make any hard and fast decisions about each story. Perhaps it was best for the listener to make up his own mind?

Easy listening

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yup! I would recommend this book for the times when you want to listen to something easy to absorb without having to dedicate listening to a whole book to on one topic... in between books type of thing ;)
