Von Daniken's first book was a novel idea. The fact that everyone looks to the sky when talking about God or angels made the whole concept of God being a visitor from space almost possible. An angel's halo or a spaceman's helmet? It did at least make you wonder. This book is just pure, rediculous fantasy. The idea that extra terestrials with enormous fighting space vehicles were waging war amongst ancient tribes, carrying the chosen few to the Moon and Mars for the odd outing and slaughtering thousands of people just for the hell of it and all of this recorded by some ancient Indian scribe is stretching imagination just a little too far.
It was a struggle to read this nonsense to the end which is a great pity because Von Daniken is capable of more intersting reading.
