Legendary UFO expert Erich von Daniken stirs up another controversy with an imaginative supposition: What if the myths of ancient Greece were attempts to describe events that really happened? What if ancient peoples were visited, not by imaginary gods and goddesses, but by extraterrestrial beings who arrived on earth thousands of years ago? The author's research into both ancient mythology and current archaeological discoveries leads him to some explosive hypotheses.

Erich has done it again. Well researched and information provided is of a good spectrum of multiple books and manuscripts. I would like to have understood the connection between this book and Greek mythology or history as it should be known, there are a lot of greek names and family trees which I would have to see a family tree for.

I love Erich's interpretations of these texts and adds his twist on things to better explain to the lay person.

"Something here really stinks to high heaven," writes Erich von Däniken. "In Twilight of the Gods," says von Däniken, "I document precisely what it was that left the first visitors breathless as they stood before the mighty stone blocks some 400 years ago. I will show you what archeologists discovered hundreds of years ago and demonstrate how much has been destroyed over the centuries. Intentionally.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, Erich and his ideas prompt all the right questions.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Twilight of the Gods?

That every culture tells the same story.

What does Kirby Heyborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I`m not a massive fan of American narrators, the emotion isn't carried well in their voice.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Dare To Believe!

Any additional comments?

I just hope Erich truly believes his books and is not jus trying to sell a story.
