Why did I love this book?
Graham Hancock’s Fingerprints of the Gods was written, as a successful breakthrough, with the technique of fiction rather than nonfiction, and as a result, is a very engaging read. In a way, one could state that Hancock is the pioneer of narrative non-fiction, which already is and will continue to be the literary medium of choice of the twenty-first century. Some of the book’s claims are... odd (Atlantis in Antarctica!), others, for example the actual occurrence of the Great Flood, have been since confirmed by various other open-minded scholars. If you are amenable to having your hard-earned assumptions challenged, start here.
