It is a beautiful book. It made me think about things, question the world, and question myself. It made me see things different. It is a book that I am going to read a couple of times to get different types of messages.
The book is educational, informative, but also has a lot of humor. I enjoyed reading it and I can't wait for the next versions to come.
The book takes you on a journey through the truth about the past, exploring different dimensions. It is a wonderful book!
Reading this book was a true experience and a journey. It really opened my heart, and resonated a lot with me.
His Story of the World is a very special book. It immerses you in a world that you are not familiar with.

This book will take you on a wild ride! I have read a bunch of books and translated quite a few. But this book is wild. You are going to see and read about an Africa you do not know. It's basically LOTR meets Guardians of the Galaxy in Wakanda.
This book connects so many spiritual concepts, also within my Surinamese culture that makes me feel very relatable with it and really touched me.
I genuinely enjoyed this book. I would love to see more works like this written, as it is a welcome addition to the current landscape of fantastic literature.

Before you even start reading this book, you notice how beautifully the cover is designed. The paperback edition I read has flaps on the sides and is well put together. I opened the book quite wide, but there are no creases on the spine. The cover image has many details with gold-colored elements that gain more significance as you read the book. Light and the Earth itself are elements of great importance in this book, and you can also see that reflected on the cover. This is the first book in a series, but you can easily read it as a standalone. You won't be left with a cliffhanger.

HIS STORY OF THE WORLD is a very special book for outsiders. You are drawn into a world that you are unfamiliar with, yet it doesn't feel entirely unfamiliar because it stems from a different tradition. Nevertheless, there are points of recognition. The history begins with the Fall of Man, just like in the Judeo-Christian tradition. And the story of gods and demigods thematically evokes strong similarities to Hesiod's Theogony (Origin of the Gods), a poetic work written by the Greek poet Hesiod in the 7th century BC. In addition, HIS STORY OF THE WORLD also carries strong Marvel vibes. Ancient aliens and monsters that seem to have stepped out of The Eternals, and a trickster reminiscent of Loki (a Marvel villain/hero and a god in Norse mythology). The ancient Greeks and the Vikings initially did not write down their heroic tales but passed them on orally, from father to son, as well as through bards who sang the epics in taverns. Does this make Gerald the African Hesiod or the African Homer, whose version of the Trojan War (the Iliad) we now know? Only time will tell.
