This review is from: Fingerprints Of The Gods: A Quest for the Beginning and the End (Paperback)
Ok, so maybe he is. This book is a great read, it is well illustrated and strangley plausable. here is the but.... it seems to me that the conclusionhad already been reached before the book even began. The 1st chapter-"the mystery of the maps " in one fell swoop seems to prove the existence of previous now lost civilisations . Hancock would have been better served giving us a more detailed examination of this area as a means of proving his theory. The rest of the book seems to be like cutting pieces from a jigsaw puzzle to make them all fit. Everything that is written is possible - not to mention plausable and seems to fit the theory. but as the bbc horizons program on this pointed out, there are some serious errors and ommissions in relation to the orion hypothesis (his star maps are upside down), and angkor wat as a map of a constellation. That said, as a whole the book is thought provoking and intensly interesting and entertaining. Even if like me you are a sceptic, dont dismiss it. Read it.
