The Return of the Gods: He reports on his many visits to the lost civilization of Nazca, an ancient, isolated settlement deep in the Peruvian desert. He analyzes aerial views and closeups of extraordinary markings that stretched across the land for miles, forming complex shapes and designs unnoticed from the ground but unmistakable from the air. How could primitive people have achieved such an amazing feat? Forget the theories about religious rituals, irrigation systems, and astrological calendars; these are creations of extraterrestrials.
Impossible to explain or even envision from the ground, the mile-long “landing strip,” the curious etchings of beasts, and the immense geometric designs and giant mandalas are simple to execute–if their creators could see them from the air.

Lists with This Book. Oct 08, A. Shaw rated it it was amazing Shelves: I adore this book. I bought it as soon as the translation came out, because I was a weird teenager, and read it over and over. It’s a quick and easy read, with room for every facial expression from eye-rolling to grinning to actually, now you mentio I adore this book.
I love revisiting his books, and, with the increasing hindsight of time, and our comparatively rapid advances in science, his discussion of things like the human genome and computer technology are dated in particularly interesting ways. I could have sworn this was called Return To The Stars, but maybe my memory is tricking me. Anyway this is pretty standard Von Daniken stuff, but interesting nonetheless. A lot of the ideas don’t really stand up to close scrutiny!
Dec 30, Shrestha rated it liked it. It is definitely very interesting and almost convincing in certain areas. But as any conspiracy theories go everything is to be taken with a grain of salt. Jul 23, Ruth rated it it was ok.
How I love to quote from this book when conversations become boring. Remember that this man was convicted of fraud relating to a jewellery transaction in his early life. It failed to attract enough visitors to guarantee its survival. Dec 07, Kevinjwoods rated it liked it Shelves: An interesting book to read, while the basic idea that when the ancient stories and legends tell of people from the stars travelling to and fro from craft orbiting the earth in a clearly technological aircraft, they were telling the truth rather than being allegorical is not all that controversial in itself other than to “mainstream” archaeologists there are some notable flaws.
For example the idea that man could not have evolved the idea of mathematics so it must have been genetically installed An interesting book to read, while the basic idea that when the ancient stories and legends tell of people from the stars travelling to and fro from craft orbiting the earth in a clearly technological aircraft, they were telling the truth rather than being allegorical is not all that controversial in itself other than to “mainstream” archaeologists there are some notable flaws.
For example the idea that man could not have evolved the idea of mathematics so it must have been genetically installed in humanity fails to consider that the alien races must have evolved the idea of mathematics which renders the theory that it could not have evolved obviously wrong, and the final chapter on Alien Abductions seems to have very little relevance to anything in the rest of the book to the extent that it could have been already written and added later.
At this time it is the only book I read from this author. He is famous for his alien books. I do not believe his opinions about aliens, but it was interesting.
He quoted from the bible and some parts are realy strange. And I am also open for new thoughts. I think this is importand.
You can every time decide for yourself what you believe and what you dont believe, but you shouldnt close the mind for strange things. Let it in your mi At this time it is the only book I read from this author. Let it in your mind. Think about and decide then!
I picked up this audiobook edition free from Tantor audiobooks. All I can say is thankfully it was free! The premise is just crazy and the author comes across as a complete nutjob. After about the first chapter I just pretended that it was the Science Fiction it sounded like and it became much more enjoyable. Most of it was amusing, and the whole discussion of “alien abductee” rights being ignored by their alien abductors was just so darn funny I actually laughed out loud.
By that point it had b I picked up this audiobook edition free from Tantor audiobooks. Jul 17, Claudia rated it it was amazing. I am thankful for Erich Von Daniken. His books always make you think about who we are and where we might have come from. His ideas and books have largely met with derision and condemnation because there is a lot of secular and ecclesiastical power that would crumble if he is correct. Aug 09, Matt rated it liked it. I thought this was a very well-thought-out and well-written book.
Unlike many followers of the author, I have never read his first book. His analysis of humanity’s stories of the gods, in conjunction with the ancient astronaut theory, was enlightening.
He is very persuasive, and his arguments make sense. I would highly recommend this title. Apr 14, JR Simons rated it liked it. Feeding my guilty pleasures. Inspired to do so by the announcement that Fox is rebooting “The X-files” for next season.
Meh If you’re a sci fi fan then you’ll enjoy the book however, I wouldn’t take anything as gospel. Definitely better than No Mans Sky. Apr 27, Thorsten rated it it was amazing. Jun 24, Craig Wilson rated it liked it. The nutter is at it again, good light reading. Aug 17, Scott Swager rated it really liked it.
One of my favorites. It really gives food for thought. Sep 02, Ken rated it liked it Shelves: I always love ET theory books. The best part may have been at the end with the update on the Great Pyramid.
