Publisher's Summary

Chilling initiations. Big banks and money manipulations. Possible links to the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Adamses, and Bushes. Reviewing the evidence, documents, and connections, The Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World by award-winning journalist and author Jim Marrs shines a light on the history, workings, continuing influence, and pernicious and hidden power of this secret order. 

Surveying experts - from those who dismiss the Illuminati as a short-lived group of little consequence to skeptics who dare question the government's accounts and pronouncements - Marrs cuts through the wild speculation and the attempts to silence critical thinkers to tell the true story of this secret cabal. He investigates their origin as "The Ancient and Illuminated Seers of Bavaria", the depiction on the United States one-dollar bill of an all-seeing eye and pyramid on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, the Protocols - or procedures - for usurping national governments and gaining world domination, the symbolism found in today's international corporate logos, Knights Templar, assassins, Skull and Bones, whistle blowers, the revolutions in France, Russia, and America, and much, much more.

Full on overload.

Great information within. Jim was one of the foremost knowledgeable persons when it came to the clandestine globalist groups who are neither left nor right wing. RIP Jim, god bless you and the work you did.

Waste of money

Full of errors. Conspiracy theory. Not worth the time or money. Hope this writer will do due diligence in the future.

Repetitive but Very Interesting

Jim Marrs' book feels more like collected essays than a single narrative. Consequently, certain material is repeated several times, occasionally verbatim, throughout the book. It is jarring enough that you'll check your Audible app to see if you've accidentally bumped the timeline. That said, the material is very interesting. The narrator does a fine job presenting the material in a calm manner normally not found in conspiracy analysis. If you have a credit or three lying around, this is a selection you won't regret.

Very interesting. It makes you go hmmmm.

It was entertaining to think how history connects with secret societies. I will have to read the different books, articles the author talks about. I can see heading down the rabbit hole investigating!

A significant piece of the puzzle

Although this book is repetetive and the information has been available for years, it was worth listening to.
If you are a student of history, it is important to consider these premisses in order to anticipate what is to come. If you read the Bible and worship Christ you will acknowledge that he told you this would happen.

narration was kinda bland and emotionless.

Very Interesting, It seems that here in kinds card to consciousness is expanding in growing and soon there will be no more rocks and crevices for these Illuminati folks to hide we will be able to see everything that they do and plan in the open and we will be able to stop them. Their time is limited. Narration could have been better if it just had a little bit of emotion behind it it was somewhat monotone.

a good beginning primer for me<br /><br />

my only complaint was the long summaries at the end of the chapter, almost as if there was going to be a pop quiz

Trash

You can tell from the title that this book is trash, but I thought it was going to be more entertaining trash. Mixes a certain amount of what sounds like actual history with the most ridiculous conspiracy theories and rumors, which it repeats uncritically. If you believe Bill Gates causes covid and aliens are trying to crossbreed with human elites, you'll like this book. Antisemites also will not be disappointed.

AKA the hidden hand

Great book from Jim Marrs with facts the media and education dare not share.
Shows how far we have been programmed when everything to do with this nefarious cabal is denied.
prepare to be educated

Great Page Turner..

I have read a lot of Jim Marrs books, I would rate this in my top 3, the other 2 being. Crossfire and rule of secrecy.

Rule of Secrecy being closer to The Illuminati, crossfire was about JFK. Gives a great background and has some similarities
to rule of secrecy. If you like that book you will also love this. I would a lot of the material very interesting, and like the way
Jim Marrs unravels a subject. Narrator does a solid job as well.. Value for money being nearly 20 hours of audio.

brief review

Not atall scientific, lacks any serious detail and is fraut with cherry picking and confirmation bias. Seems the author had little substance with which to write the book thus he procrastinates, an example is his over emphasis on humanity's innate longing to belong to a group it feels dragged across pages like hes filling gaps with empty words. My interest was spiked occasionally but soon plateaued upon reading conspiratorial conjecture. in my opinion, If you have a desire for knowledge of the illuminati it will be better served in the reading of Angel's and Demons.

Frustrating

This book starts off promising for about the first hour but then quickly spirals into problems. .

Firstly, the ancient alien themes of Zechariah Sitchin are promoted heavily throughout, and clearly the author is promoting the notion that illuminati members could well be Anunnaki descendants of ancient alien gods, which is quite ludicrous.

The second, and larger problem, is the constant repetition. All the way through the book, and more as it progresses, text will be repeated literally word for word, resulting in a book that probably contains 30% identical passages. Basically, you’ll be read an hour or so text, then you’ll hear the same texts word for word again, which is a total waste of time and is increasingly frustrating to the listener.

Despite these major negative issues there are some interesting nuggets of information, but due to the frustrations and repetitive boredom I would avoid this book.

Repetitive

Very repetitive,, the author writes like a teenager with a word count to reach... Spent a lot of time thinking 'I've heard this bit, has it rewound' only to realise it was repeating a story it had already narrated with slightly different wording, I suppose if you were being imcredibly generous you could call it a recap, but tbh you don't need a recap of something from 5 minutes ago.
Very much written from a right wing American xtian POV, talks about 'satanic zionist conspiracy'
