Not a Book

This is not a book it is 20 minutes of some guy talking coupled with 35 minutes of music. Not only is it not informative it is kind of like a conspiracy theory but with not enough crazy in it.

What the hell is this?

I wish I had read the other reviews. This book contains nearly continuous music behind the narration. That wouldn't be so bad, but the balance is very poor making it difficult to hear the reading. The writing is uninteresting and contains very little detail. All in all, this selection might be worth 50? but certainly not $12.33.

Weak story with distracting background music

If you are looking for enlightenment on the Knights of Malta and the Alchemists, just google it. You will get more information. Fortunately i had some prior knowledge about the Knights of Malta, or i would have been completely lost in the story line. The background music made it even harder to follow. I do not recommend this book, however, the narrator was quite good. The last several minutes of the audio book are taken up with more of the music. The actual story minus presented minus the music would be shorter than a magazine article.

More Illuminati Free Mason horsepuckery

Save the fairy tales for the Brothers Grimm. Thank Cthulhu that this was mercifully short.

Lacking in facts

Firstly, if I’d wanted a music track I’d have purchased an album. The constant music throughout and long pauses between “text” did not add value. The title grabbed me but not a word of the content managed to have the same effect. I found this to be a string of maybes and buts with no real substance. The few bits of evidence were loosely coupled with unsupported stories in an attempt to portray the latter as fact - when they are clearly not. Not worth picking up.

Irritating to listen

What would have made Order of the Alchemists better?

The removal of the irritating music in the background.

Any additional comments?

I was so looking forward to listening to this story, but I could not focus on the words because of the music.
