And as the truth about prehistory and the real meaning of ancient myths and monuments is revealed, it becomes apparent that a warning has been handed down to us: a terrible cataclysm that afflicts the Earth at irregular intervals of time may be about to occur.More
"A fancy piece of historical sleuthing...intriguing and entertaining and sturdy enough to give a long pause of thought." (Kirkus Review)

Abridged edition is way too short
The time was well spent as it piqued my interest in the full print version of the work.
Chariots of the Gods due to similar content
I did not observe any detraction owing to the narrator
I am inspired to acquire and read the full edition of the book
The abridged edition was too short and I found the continuity of the story suffered. I could not follow a line through the presentation. I found the subject matter fascinating and the narration good from a storytelling perspective; however, as stated, the abridged content rendered the whole experience less effective than it might otherwise have been were it unabridged.
