Publisher's Summary

High up in the Bolivian Andes---4,000 meters above sea level---lies Puma punku, an ancient ruined city that simply could never have been constructed by its Stone Age inhabitants.
"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. "I will also prove that Puma punku was not built by any Stone Age people. "And in December 2012, the gods will return from their long journey and appear again here on Earth. At least that is what the Mayan calendar would have us believe. "The so-called gods---the extraterrestrials---will come again. We're headed for a 'god shock' of major proportions. "But doesn't anyone with half a brain know that interstellar travel is simply impossible because of the sheer distances involved? And that extraterrestrials would never look like us?" In his own inimitable way, Erich von Däniken picks these preconceptions and prejudices apart with a clarity no other author could manage.

I want to believe...

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.
