Publisher's Summary

Erich von Däniken claims to have never seen a UFO. But in the fall of 1987, on a desert ride, he experienced a close encounter of a very different kind. A being materialized before his eyes, and since the "thing" had no name, von Däniken called it "Tomy". This book is the story of Tomy. Some say that Tomy is a scientific impossibility.
Yet Tomy was there, science or not. After all, Tomy had for a few weeks lived among us, and that was enough for plenty of interpersonal relationships. God knows that von Däniken was not the only one who had known Tomy; others could see him, as well. Now, after 19 years of silence, Däniken has decided to make public the incredible story of Tomy.
Here, the best-selling author of Chariots of the Gods makes his foray into the world of fiction. Tomy and the Planet of Lies is a thrilling adventure novel that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats.

We are not our body's. We are the soul or spirit in the body. It's important NOT to Lie. We don't have to speak or be an open book.

Has OBE, Teleportation, Mystery, and a Visitor

This book was an "I hope it's worth it" purchase. And, it was.

The story is fantastic, gripping, and if time and life allowed it this would have been an "all in one sitting" book.

There is one part in the book that was emotionally moving for me (your mileage may vary) when Erich von Daniken tried to describe the experience that Tomy made possible for him when Erich von Daniken's Consciousness was able to leave his body and the author got to experience the Universe, from galaxies to microscopic atomic and smaller. What a fantastic journey.

The travel, the archaeological ruins visited, the cities and hotels and various foreign intelligence operatives and the manipulations and threats and death read like a mystery book, but when the author and his companions got home, danger and death was not left behind.

The narrator was a perfect fit. The only odd thing in the story is whenever the Iranian people are mentioned as speaking Arabic. In Iran, the language is referred to as Persian and I could only wonder if this was due to an editor rather than the author, who would know better.

I really didn't like this book

Would you try another book written by Erich von Däniken or narrated by Arthur Morey?

I do enjoy Erich von Daniken's books and have listened to most of them. I liked Arthur Morey as narrator.

Has Tomy and the Planet of Lies put you off other books in this genre?

It has a little but as I've listened to so many of Erich's, I've just downloaded another one of his.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I found it very negative and Erich's writings came across as quite egotistical.
The first chapter made me want to stop listening to it all together but I persevered for another 4 chapters but couldn't finish it.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Frustration that I'd wasted money on it. Disappointment from Erich as I've really enjoyed his other books.
