3.0 out of 5 stars Too much waffle for me., 21 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Underworld: Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age (Hardcover)
My main criticism of the book is waffle. It's filled up with a lot religious theorising from India, and ice-age flood theories from a lot of other people, the information is grafted over into his book and used as fact, or if it's a myth from India, that takes him in a certain direction, where from my perspective, it is obvious, and he just doesn't get it. That's to be expected I suppose. At least he's open minded enough about the subject to write a book that lots of people find fascinating to read, going against the `academic' and establishment, where if it isn't in the books they were schooled in at college, it doesn't exist.. literally, even though the author dives to the sites under the sea and photographs the evidence. I didn't pay a lot for the book, I got a good second hand copy, so for me, I sift through to the bits that interest me most.. the sections on Malta and Japan, I found very interesting., but off the coast of India, the water was very murky, and the ruins not impressive at all. But there is a lot of information contained therein. And it probably takes a guy like this to write about this subject, but like I said, too much waffle and not enough meat and potatoes.
