Editorial Reviews


"Saboe's ambitious fiction...mixes ancient mysticism with science fiction. Gives timeless questions new scope and accessibility. A gripping, first-rate epic that challenges current dogma."
--Molly Simms--Kirkus Reviews

A sci/fi plot...set in Ancient Mesopotamia...a voyage into self and a mind-opening experience.
Well written with excellent research and vivid descriptions making this a highly recommended read.

--Shirley Roe--Allbooks Review

Blends ancient history and fiction in a way that is enjoyable to follow.
Well-researched historical events and legends.
Will be appreciated by anyone seeking a different perspective on man's early history.
--Suzanne J. Sprague--Historical Novel Society

"a fantastic book...that describes a plausible history of culture, as
he weaves a tale of adventure.... I promise, when you run out of
pages to read, you'll wish it were longer."
--Matt Michell, Modern Historicus

I don't like thick books with big words. They are too often nothing more than the ramblings of an author who is trying - but has not yet succeeded - in collecting his thoughts. In this case, however, the page count is fully justified.

"The Days of Peleg" packs what appears to be a lifetime of historical, philosophical, and theological study into a surprisingly concise and easy-to-read narrative. Concise? Yes. The length of this book is not due to repetition or incompetence but to the vast scope of the work - Saboe simply has a lot to say. And it's worth hearing. All of it.

You'll probably enjoy this book more if you do a bit of research regarding "out of place artifacts" before you begin. And a familiarity with the first fifteen chapters of Genesis will help as well. But even without prerequisites... well, if you've got the time, Jon's got the book.

Format: Paperback
Jon Saboe has produced an incredibly gripping, entertaining and imaginative book with The Days of Peleg. If you are into reading about ancient technology (such as the Baghdad battery, the Antikythera Mechanism, and Macchu Picchu), then this book will delight you. Jon paints a picture of the ancient world that is familiar and yet somehow completely original. Neanderthals with geothermal heating systems; Chaldeans with bioluminescent commercial signs; Mesoamericans with chronometric water towers. None of these things are beyond credibility, as Saboe's ample research and end notes show, but to weave them into a story, as Jon does, is brilliant.

The characters themselves are memorable and even likable. You begin to feel yoursefl concerned with the fate of the characters and the book is definitely one you'll look forward to reading any spare moment you have.

It reads like a motion picture, one of the funnest books I've ever read.

The book is not perfect. My only criticism is that when describing some complex scenery or series of events, Jon Saboe sometimes lost me in the description, and I wasn't able to fully visualize what he was trying to explain. This is a small issue and doesn't take away from the readability or flow of the book, since it only happens a few times. My suggestion would be for the author to pretend he is explaining the scene to a blind man, which is what the reader is in a sense.

Overall, this book was comforting, fun and exciting. I cannot wait until Jon's next book. Buy it now if you can, you will be happy with it.

Format: Paperback
The current ruling paradigm in the industrial world is that we modern humans are the most intelligent creatures ever to have roamed the earth. After all, we came about through a gradual increase in organized complexity, and our ancestors were certainly not as capable thinkers as we here today. But there is a minority group who think differently. They have collected evidences from around the world showing that someone in the past was actually more technologically sophisticated than the majority archaeologists would lead us to believe. Of course, in order to not be too fringe, these individuals attribute the artifacts to extraterrestrials. The Days of Peleg provides another angle. What if humanity is actually in decline? What if we modern humans are only a shadow of what used to be? The novel explores this possibility in a way in which none other has that I can remember. It takes the physical evidences along with the accounts our ancestors handed to us and weaves them together into an adventure that peers into an epic period in the history of man. The story is excellent, and the writing is well done. The characters are quite memorable, and the journey they undertake while circumnavigating a new globe is one of excitement and contemplation. It is a book that is certainly difficult to put down, and one that will have you thinking for some time after it is placed on the shelf.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David Carson on February 21, 2010
Format: Paperback
The mobility and ingenuity of ancient humanity is something we moderns seriously underestimate. Since the beginning, civilizations have explored, mapped, and commercialized the world far beyond their borders. This novel envisions what that would have looked like as Peleg, a Sumerian cartographer, sails aboard the exploration vessel "Urbat" on a journey spanning years, continents, and cultures. In the still-forming world soon after the flood of Noah and the scattering of nations at the Tower of Babel, civilizations and religions are arising that will determine the course of human history to this day. The mission of the Urbat and its crew is to discover, contact, and categorize these societies for trade and the sake of knowledge itself, a worthy and honored calling in the culture of Peleg and his shipmates.

The journey offers a fascinating look at ancient cultures and lands such as Easter Island, pre-Inca South America, and Africa. Ancient technologies about which we are still learning today, like the Antikythera mechanism, are also introduced in the narrative. Along the way the crew learns more about the catastrophic flood and scattering and how different peoples have reacted and adapted to their spiritual causes. The author deftly turns a long and potentially tedious voyage into an epic sea story punctuated with landward adventures worthy of Indiana Jones.

In a parallel narrative of events back in Sumeria, a war of religious worldviews imperils the foundation of the Urbat's mission of discovery. The materialistic and objective quest for knowledge is challenged by the rise of mystery religion, changing forever the world to which the explorers will return, if they return at all.
