Publisher's Summary

That, which is usually presented as the first 36 chapters of The Book of Enoch was originally known as the Book of the Watchers and dates to around 200 BC. This translation of the Book of the Watchers comes to us from notable scholar of apocryphal literature, R. H. Charles, who published it in 1917. The narrative of the Book of the Watchers is told from the point of view of Enoch and not surprisingly focuses on a class of angels known as the Watchers. Watchers are featured in the fourth chapter of the Book of Daniel as well as some of the other apocryphal books that have Enoch's name attached to them. Included are some opening remarks which examine the text itself.

narration could be better

I found this one hard to focus on the story because of the narration. It seemed like he was trying to create grandiose on every single phrase. As for the story-line, this was my first experience with this type literature.

Good info, but dry delivery.

It was a good relay of information, but the narrator was hard to listen to.

Interesting points

Interestingly points common with New Testament
Repeatedly talked of the elect
Eternal life is spiritual and does not involve having a wife
Mount Hermon where bad angels feel to earth

Other points
Fallen angels offspring was to be destroyed
Evil spirits came from the offspring of fallen angels and women
Women that slept with the angels became sirens
Fallen angels wanted children and delighted in them
Their children hated mankind
