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.

Reader/ Writer Mismatch
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.

Great book with horrible narration
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.

Nick Redfern shines again!
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.

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.
