The Pyramids and the Pentagon is a detailed study of how and why government agencies have, for decades, taken a clandestine and profound interest in numerous archeological, historical, and religious puzzles.
Focusing primarily upon the classified work of the U.S. Government, The Pyramids and the Pentagon invites you to take a wild ride into the fog-shrouded past.
Nick Redfern's The Pyramids and the Pentagon clearly and provocatively demonstrates that deep and dark conspiracies exist within the shadowy world of officialdom - conspiracies that have the ability to rock the foundations of civilization, religion, and history to their very core. The strange and amazing secrets of the past are just a heavily guarded government vault away.
First, this isn't my usual sort of book, but it was an interesting departure. Basically a fairly superficial overview of a number of less-publicized conspiracy theories from last-century US history. Obviously presented from the point of view of a true believer.
But the narrator's voice fairly drips with disdain for the material, and not in a funny or appealing way at all. I can practically hear him rolling his eyes as he narrates.
In most cases when I don't care for the narrator, I can at least respect that they are doing their best. But in this case it's as if the reader is deliberately trying to undermine the text. I'm already a skeptic regarding the material itself, but I'd like to hear it presented honestly as the author apparently intends.
Throw in the occasional gross mispronunciations (eh-mehr-AH-tus for emeritus? Really???) and it's hard to enjoy this.

Extremely interesting and well researched, They Pyramids and the Pentagon is a must have to anyone interested in the relationship between the government and fringe material.
The only thing that ruined it for me was the absolutely wooden narration. I think having kindle read it to me would have been better. It was easily the worst narration I've ever heard in an audiobook.

With Redfern as author I was expecting so much more.And Why? an American reader?
Miost of this is a series of statements of 'the bleeding obvious'.
If you have been in a coma or solitary confinement for 50 years then this a quick expensive update
To be fair, I did learn a little more about Radar in the 50's and the ET request to have British minders.

Very good. Lots of food for thought here, some great, some flimsy conjecture. Whether you believe in aliens is irrelevant. The sheer number of gov't schemes and coverups is bad news for the general public. Please, use your mind. Investigate.
I can't tell you how many times I've listened to this book it is well written and well narrated. I look forward to more books.
The book was fun to listen to. It has some great information and ideas. However, the narration is distracting and the sound engineering and mixing is porely done. To the point that the poor job of mixing makes it hard to concentrate on the narrative.
If you like books that explore alternative possibilities of history and the future, perhaps this book is for you. The stories are very entertaining and they will make you think.
What would have made The Pyramids and the Pentagon better?
Has The Pyramids and the Pentagon turned you off from other books in this genre?
The research was purely speculative.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
The research Nick Redfern has done for this novel is basically retelling the same stories other authors have used in previous books or just speculation. Nick Redfern also want to taken seriously as a researcher and author in a field of science but doesn't understand the scientific method. He often quotes himself, citing himself, as a basis of argument. Most of the topics covered are from late 20th century science fiction films. As the book progresses, it takes a "could it be possible" narrative. I would not recommend.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would, provided they weren't familiar with the bare essentials of the subject matter.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I think perhaps a deeper dive into fewer subjects would have been more enjoyable.
What aspect of Peter Jude’s performance would you have changed?
He came across as sarcastic to me.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Already covered in many documentaries... in greater depth.
Any additional comments?
I'm not denigrating this work, it's a solid 3 star book. I think it should have included the word 'overview' somewhere in the title. <br/><br/>Also, Redfern seems a HUGE fan of the adverb. At one point I was chuckling at the fact that he managed to get four of them into a single sentence! Right around the middle of the book it's adverb central so be prepared... or should I say listen preparedly?
If you could sum up The Pyramids and the Pentagon in three words, what would they be?
informative, interesting, factual
What did you like best about this story?
The presented facts about the CIA involvement after the discovery of the dead sea scrolls
Have you listened to any of Peter Jude’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
CIA cover-up of extraterrestrials and the deciphering of ancient text
A book of speculation and unsubstantiated rumour. Interesting rumours, maybe, but there is nothing vaguely substantial here at all. Plus, the narrator adopts a suitably patronising and semi-moronic tone entirely in keeping with the content.
Give it a miss.

Interesting,engaging ,never full worth a listen,but with the lights on.....
Nick does not disappoint with another well researched journey into all things Fortean.
Where does The Pyramids and the Pentagon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Thia book ranks highly amoung my books, it is truly fascinating and backs up a lot of information that I have gleaned elsewhere.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Pyramids and the Pentagon?
The dissapearance of the battleship, and what happened to some pf the crew, quite chilling.
Have you listened to any of Peter Jude’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No this is my first book read by Peter Jude.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I was gripped from the start, but did not have the time to read in one hit umfortunately.
Any additional comments?
If you have any interest in this area this book is a good read, however it does try to cover many topics, so you may want to do further research yourself.
