Thoroughlly Enjoyable

What made the experience of listening to The Ancient Alien Question the most enjoyable?

There were many ancient things mentioned which I was unaware existed.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how well the interesting history of ideas over the last 200 years is lain out in the book. It's a great history lesson of people's ideas on ancient things and the evolution of those ideas over time.

What about Kevin Foley’s performance did you like?

Very good narration. Could listen to him all day.

Any additional comments?

I also like how the author doesn't make any outlandish statements however explains the many possibilities of why and how and let's the reader make up there own mind. All round an excellent book and narration. Highly recommend to anyone interested in ancient history.
