Lorenz Killer reviews LOST GOD.

Lorenz Killer CH: Actor, Model, Speaker

The cover of Gregor Spörri's 300-page book only gives the interested reader a hint of the secrets revealed in this fictional apocalypse. Straight to the point - it is not for the faint-hearted or romanticized souls who want to follow the old world view of religion and history. Here, concentrated knowledge, away from the mainstream media, is combined with a fictitious future story to create a gloomy, end-of-the-world read. It's a great read and puts Emmerich's "Independence Day" in the shade as gentle bedtime reading. Link to the unabridged review

Leif Inselmann reviews LOST GOD.

Leif Inselmann DE: Archaeology student, science writer

With "Lost God", Gregor Spörri has succeeded in creating a remarkably exciting and unconventional sci-fi thriller. The constantly changing perspectives create a fast-paced narrative. Nevertheless, there is still room for a lot of background information. The author combines almost trashy science fiction with well thought-out technical considerations, adaptations of borderline scientific theories, his own experiences and sometimes satirical criticism of our current social conditions. Somehow it all adds up to a rounded whole, which carries the reader along to the dramatic end. Link to the unabridged review

Sandro Stalber reviews LOST GOD.

Sandro Stalder OE: Ski and diving instructor

Author Gregor Spörri can certainly hold his own against "Master of Disaster" Roland Emmerich. From page 104, all hell breaks loose on earth and in space. One catastrophe follows another. The "divine superpower" knows no mercy. Enormous scenes arise in the mind. And yet there is a striking difference to Emmerich. While its stories and characters often come across as flat and dripping with pathos, "Lost God" turns out to be a profound end-time thriller with intelligent storylines, characters and dialog. I hope this fantastic story finds its way to the big screen soon.

Peter Hoeft DE: Author, publicist

What if the celestial beings that were worshipped and feared as gods all over the world thousands of years ago were to visit the earth again, as the proponents of the paleo-SETI thesis imagine? How would humanity behave? Would there be another shock to the gods? How would the US President or the Pope, for example, react? An exciting question. What makes this truly apocalyptic science fiction thriller so appealing to me: LOST GOD is a real page-turner that I could hardly put down, I was so captivated by the story, which is written in the style of a reportage.

Floyd Varesi reviews LOST GOD

Floyd Varesi CH: Tattoo artist

A mystery thriller that prophesies the end of the world in the near future. "Lost God" is about the return of the biblical gods from the perspective of pre-astronautics. But the book offers even more: a tangible space adventure, a dark vision of Islamist terror and much more. I really enjoyed reading it because I love stories full of surprises and connections. The beginning of the book is also exciting, where the author tells of his incredible discovery in Egypt and then cleverly links this real part with the fictional part of the story, which has burrowed deep into my consciousness like an apocalyptic purgatory.

Peter Slesaczeck DE: Geologist

As a supporter and advocate of extraterrestrial intervention on earth, I have been dealing with this topic for a long time thanks to Erich von Däniken and Mysteries. I couldn't put this mystery SF thriller down. Tension was cleverly built up throughout with reliable facts, thorough research and a lot of basic knowledge. Gregor Spörri's logical conclusions - the result of factual communication and literary freedom, of realities on earth and fiction - inevitably lead to this result. I never dared to think that far! A great book that is a real challenge to further study this topic!

Pascal Brun CH: Visual Designer

Updated to reflect current events, the new 'LOST GOD' once again offers plenty of thrills and shines with critical philosophical statements and well-researched, albeit extremely daring theses on the existence of a higher being called Ha-Shem Ha-Mephorasch and his creation: man. In his latest work, the author manages to increase the dramaturgy once again and make the ending so exciting that you automatically wish for a sequel.

Klemens Niklaus Trenkle CH: filmmaker, actor

Gregor Spörri's end-time opus 'LOST GOD - The Last Judgement' reads almost like a script for a terrifying, apocalyptic blockbuster. The story is extremely interesting, rich in detail, quite sophisticated for this genre and, above all, exciting right to the end. The characters touch you and act authentically. Uncomfortable truths are ruthlessly exposed. The various storylines create great images in your head as you read. Fantastic material that is ideal for making into a movie.

Julian von Heyl reviews LOST GOD

Julian von Heyl DE: Editor of Lost God

A really exciting read - Lost God impressed me. Biblical stories and myths are playfully combined to create an imaginative chronicle of the end of the world. On the factual side, you do have to swallow a few things; on the other hand, I was often amused at how precisely the questions I asked myself while reading were answered a little later. The ending is particularly captivating, with an open hint that lends a conciliatory note to the overall gloomy work.

Thorsten Hoth DE: Lecturer, actor, screenwriter

In 1988, Gregor Spörri came across a mysterious relic in Egypt. Since then, he has repeatedly returned to the land of the pharaohs for research. As a private researcher, he is ridiculed in academic circles, so he decides to turn his findings into a novel. Spörri skillfully blends his ideas and fantasies with established knowledge and current affairs. 'LOST GOD' is a suspenseful mystery thriller made for the big screen. I am delighted to be writing the script for the novel together with the author.

Luc Bürgin reviews LOST GOD

Luc Bürgin CH: Editor of "Mysteries-Magazin"

What is an Arabian crescent doing on an extraterrestrial object? And what is a paleo-SETI researcher doing in the Oval Office? Optimists had better keep their hands off this book, because amateur researcher and author Gregor Spörri mercilessly holds up a mirror to the supposed 'crown of creation'. 'LOST GOD - The Last Judgement' is a futuristic and realistic apocalyptic science fiction thriller that robs the stars of their romantic glow.

The divine apocalypse remains at the center of the new edition. Spörri has taken the reviews of the first edition from 2012 seriously and has given the current 2021 edition promising updates in terms of content and language. Anyone who likes well-researched, in-depth stories mixed with exciting action should definitely read LOST GOD. It would also be fantastic material for the movies.

Is the Bible right in its assertion that the sons of heaven (angels) once became involved with human daughters? Will the gods return one day? Based on his experiences in Egypt, author Gregor Spörri has intensively studied the paleo-SETI thesis. The result is a gripping mystery SF thriller that takes up the thesis and spins it further.
