The Food of the Gods and How it Came to Earth

2 ratings, 1 review

Two stuffy English scientists, always looking to further their scientific knowledge, create a substance called Herakleophorbia, which in its fourth incarnation – known as Herakleophorbia IV – has the special ability of making things increase greatly in size. As the scientists begin experimentation on some chicks, the substance is misused by some “country folk” who don’t take it seriously and soon Herakleophorbia IV is running rampant throughout England and then across the globe, creating giant plants and animals that wreak havoc on the land and then the people. Then the first giant babies are revealed and for the first time humanity has to contend with the existence of a new race of giant people. How humanity deals with this shocking new creation is revealed in The Food of the Gods and How it Came to Earth.

I enjoyed the book so far, but the the reader was quite annoying in my opinion. He read the story way too fast. It was hard for me to grasp what he was saying. I may have to try this audiobook again with another person reading it..... Then Maybe I will enjoy it more....
