Captivating and thought provoking to say the least

Graham Hancock confronts us with a most utterly skilfull narration of the ancient history underlying the most enigmatic archaeological monuments known to mankind, such as the majestic pyramids and the leonine Sphinx that adorn the now barren desert landscape of the Giza plateau. His insightful and daring hypotheses are perversely bold. Is it a coincidence that this book is both perversely engaging whilst conveying, nonetheless, the grandeur of the ancients with the dual fascination of both scientific mathematical exactness and the magical mysticism of legend and myth? Alas, it is not. The calendric precision of a great vanished civilization is provocative beyond measure, to say the least. Graham Hancock comes across as a demigod, a direct heir of the wisdom cult of the Viracocha, who by means of sacred geometry and long-forgotten technological advancements, hidden beneath the imposing and impenetrable ice layers of the lost continent of Antarctica, transcended the challenges of global bituminous cataclysms through countless epochs. His account of the heroic feats by Thoth, Quetzalcoatl, and other bearers of great knowledge, are masterfully composed to evoke a grappling sense of urgency upon the world to initiate itself out from uniformitarian rigidities and into the new astrological calendric Era of Aquarius before catastrophe befalls our world engulfing it in the flames of the End Times.

'Is it unreasonable to assume?!'

Where to start, raises some interesting historical points but the whole book is case of painting a bullseye around where he's thrown his dart of research. The delivery is compelling but too many times I had to pause the narrative in order to stare into the distance at how easy he grouped events/ideas together merely because the facts didn't prove it wrong. If I hear 'Is it unreasonable to assume' one more time I might cry, the thoughts have no critical assessment and it ruins the basis of some interest points. I would recommend this if you're into a fiction based losely on facts.

Bad

Completely wasted my time with unsupported conjecture and conclusions far fetched and lacking any evidential proof.
