    1. A friend recommended Sitchin to me, and at first I sort of laughed because of how the media portrays people who believe in aliens and because science-fiction makes them into gray creatures with big eyes that probe humans. Also, the fact that I saw his name next to David Icke's a lotTo fully enjoy this book, you have to shake off all stereotypes and just absorb the words on the page, and if you're able to do that, there is no reason you shouldn't enjoy what you're reading.I thought this book was [...]

    2. I thought this one was great! At first I thought maybe the author was a bit off, with his extra planet theroy. But I was amazed at what I learned from this one. Mostly about how the Bible stories are in fact true, but based on MUCH older stories from an ancient Sumerian civilization. It is astonishing just how much these ancients recorded and how much they knew. How advanced they were! Where did all the intelligence go that those who came before us had? Hummmm makes a person wonder!

    3. It's difficult for me to believe many of the theories laid out in this book as pure fact or non-fiction when the author doesn't site his sources on the ready as I'm reading. If the author claims something seemingly outrageous as fact, then I'd like to be able to see a footnote and double check that statement easily. Also, I'd like to be able to know where all the drawings of clay tablets included throughout the book are located, and how I can see for myself that it is real and true. I understand [...]

    4. Zachariah Sitchins books are detailed with actual translations of Ancient Cuniform (clay tablet) writings. They are Sumerian Writings , the language which brought about Aramaic, which in turn brought about Hebrew and Arabic. He is an Archeologist, and ancient script interpreter/translator. He delves into ancient texts, and clay tablet writtings, religious scriptures, artifacts, and drawings & visits museums, and sights of actual historical significance mentioned in various world scriptures, [...]

    5. I attended Christian Jr/Sr. high schools and studied the Bible extensively every day throughout those years. When I went to college I minored (more or less) in religious studies. I'm also a massive lover of history. In order to be able to learn you have to ALWAYS remain open minded. Granted, the theories and concepts brought forth by Sitchin, while at times seem outlandish on the surface, are no more so then believing in a one, true almighty being who made man from clay and woman from a rib, has [...]

    6. While many people look at Zecharia Sitchin as a kook who used questionable anthropology and archaeology as a way to sell "alien astronauts" as the basis of sentient life on earth, I find his works to be passionate and well informed studies of Sumerian lore. Even if you discount entirely the concept of the Annunaki as aliens, this series is still a masterful work of bringing some of the most ancient tales to modern man.

    7. "The Gods of Heaven and Earth of the ancient Near East not only originated in the heavens but could also return to the Heavenly Abode". "A study by Gustav Guterbock (Die Historische Tradition und Ihre Literarische Gestaltung bei Babylonier and Hethiten) ascertained that these were the "bird-men" depicted as the "Eagles" that we have already shown. The texts that spoke of their feats said of one that he "brought down Inanna from Heaven, to the E-Anna temple made her descend." This and other refer [...]

    8. I have a hard time how to categorize this book: fiction or non-fiction?It is definitely an interesting read. Zecharia Sitchin (1920-2010) spent most of his life understanding the Sumerian language and interpreting the cuneiform. His hypothesis is that men were created from the image and likeness of alien visitors some 400,000 years ago from the planet called Nibiru that is near Neptune and revolves our orbit in a strange slit-like fashion so astronomers have been missing it. So, if you are a rel [...]

    9. The opening book of the epic Earth Chronicles lays out some serious cosmogony of our solar system, based on Sumerian texts and interesting conjecture.Look people, its not science. And its not "bullshit," there are books that lie in between that spectrum and this is one of them. You can categorically disagree with everything Sitchin comes up with, but he really is not a loon, or crazy, and he is especially not a bad scholar.Read the books for fun, pause and reflect on how odd and meaningless a lo [...]

    10. This was terrible. It starts off well enough---think Eric von Daniken's Chariot of the Gods. Makes you think. And then Stitchin takes off on hugely conflicting tangents. On the one hand, he claims that the 12th planet took x thousands of years to orbit through the solar system compared to one year for Earth and that's why so much could be accomplished on Earth with, as the Bible claims, people living or ruling for thousands of years. Then he goes on to claim that the Earth itself was created whe [...]

    11. Having already read Graham hancock’s ‘Fingerprints of the Gods’ and ‘Underworld’; Christopher Dunn’s ‘The Giza Power Plant’, Elisabeth Haich’s ‘Initiation’ , this was book was in my reading bucket list for too long.Though a bit dated, 12th Planet by Zecharia Sitchin, translated now into more than 25 languages, manages to sit us on the front row to raise the curtain over the celestial epic of creation and mankind’s history. Dismissed by some as mere science fiction, but re [...]

    12. The 12th Planet is book 1 of the Earth Chronicles series, and is on part astronomic theory, one part anthropology, one part linguistics, and one part fiction. Sitchin does an excellent job of putting forth his theory of where man originated, using the Old Testament, Ancient Akkadian, Mesopotamian, and Summerian Texts as his initial building blocks. The first half of the book will draw those interested in early civilizations and languages, as well as theologists, deeply into the book. Everyone el [...]

    13. This book by Zecharia Sitchin was a very lengthy and enjoyable read, especially towards the final 100 pages. This book is definitely for an open-minded type person that is knowledgeable in quite a few areas. The ideas and suggestions about aliens generally gets a lot of people worked up about how plausible or unbelievable they are, however Sitchin incorporates science, archaeology, the Bible, Sumerian creation stories, etc. into a beautifully woven understanding. When looking at stories of Noah, [...]

    14. I found this book quite boring, even compared to von Daniken’s Chariots of the Gods. The introduction went on for a looong time, although I suppose that was a necessity. I knew hardly anything about the fertile crescent and its civilisations (sumer, arcadia, etc) before reading, and I consider myself quite well read in stuff like that. It’s quite indicative of the author that the introduction, despite its length was actually more fun than the literature-analysis proper. Basically I found mos [...]

    15. An interesting book. The author takes all the relics- all the antiquities of history- all the religious texts- all the mythologies from Rome, Greece, Israel, India and Sumer. and weaves them into an incredible tale about how earthlings came to be on the planet. Some points are interesting- some points are plausible- and some points leave you scratching you head saying huh you've got to be kidding me.I was about to put it down several times but kept with it through the end. The author has eleven [...]

    16. The first book in Zecharia Sitchin's, the Earth Chronicles, remains as controversial today as in the year 1972 of its release. The author's fascinating claims of ancient astronaut visits to Earth, a twelfth planet in our solar system and the origin of the human species are incredible but supported by ancient texts discovered in Mesopotamia dating to circa 4000 BCE. Intertwining these ancient clay tablets, of which Sitchin could proudly claim the largest private collection thereof, with Biblical [...]

    18. The world mythology aspects to this book were great, and in itself make this worth reading. I suppose the scenario is plausible, although I have misgivings about certain aspects, including the technology, and the possible cause of the Deluge. All in all this was a fun book to read, but if Sitchin was correct, it would only mean that the bible, and all the world mythologies and gods and goddesses, were not really divinely inspired after all, nor were these beings ever well intended in regards to [...]

    19. Sumeria is the father off all our civilization. Mankinds alphabet, vocabulary, legends and science. The Sumerians also had vwery advanced knowledge of astronomy. They were a civilized high point amongst a time of very primitive people. Too advanced to be explained away by such a term as evolution or natural growth. Te author uses Sumerian legend and the bible to figure it all out, in those works lies the key. The twelve Gods are present in Sumerian,Mesopatamian, Greek and Roman Lore.Who were the [...]

    20. Riveting…plausible…ensely captivating. Sitchin’s 12th Planet, the first book in the revolutionary Earth Chronicle series presents irrefutable documentary evidence of the existence of the mysterious planet Nibiru, home of the Nefilim/Anunnaki. After a lifetime of the research, Zecharia Sitchen weaves the story of man’s origins by means of biblical narrative, archaeology, mythology and ancient Sumerian and Babylonian clay –tablet texts, a story as told by the Gods themselves. He displays [...]

    21. One of the problems of most historic disciplines has been tunnel vision. A microscopic focus on one particular area, region, problem and no grand horizon or synthesis of other disciplines or knowledge. It is akin to focusing on one small tree, without taking into consideration the forest in which it sits, the region in which the forest hides, or the circumstances that first caused the seeds from a distant forest to be replicated in that regionIn some instances, the search for knowledge has also [...]

    22. 12. Gezegen, çoktan beri merak ettiğim, gökten gelen tanrılar, düşen melekler ve dünya üzerinde aklımın almadığı bazı şeyleri biraz daha anlaşılır kılmak üzere Mehmet Mollaosmanoğlu tarafından tavsiye edildi. Yıllar önce okuduğum ve hayran kaldığım Tanrıların Arabaları kitabının ardından ufkum iyice açıldı.Kitap dünyamızın çok ama çok uzun zaman önce Nefilimler adı verilen bir ırk tarafından sömürge gezegen olarak seçildiğini, uzun süre dünyam [...]

    23. Sono sempre più, ormai, gli studiosi e gli scienziati che sostengono la teoria degli antichi astronauti convalidando, almeno in parte, le ipotesi di Sitchin. Dalle tavole Sumere fino ai reperti archeologici, dagli antichi testi (Sacra Bibbia, compresa) un viaggio verso il nostro passato che potrebbe essere stato "alternativo" a quello che ci hanno raccontato. Non ho iniziato queste letture per smentirlo o credergli ciecamente, ma per ascoltare un nuovo e diverso punto di vista. E l'ho trovato e [...]

    24. I enjoyed reading the book and I find it quite fascinating. It would be a wonderful dream to go back to the past and really see the past. I have so many questions and wouldn't it be wonderful to travel to the past and go to the future to see if it really happen again? It is definitely interestingif adam and eve was created. How do the other ethnicity occur?? I truly believe the past is more advance in some area of the fields compare to this generation. There are some parts in the books that fits [...]

    25. Absolutely amazing book. I've had to go back and re-read and read again so many parts of just this first book.The author has certainly done his homework and made an incredibly strong case for his ideas. The really remarkable theories supported by so many correlations between ancient texts, biblical writings and what we know to be scientific fact really create a place in a thinking person's mind to embrace a concept that otherwise would sound like purely science fiction.I'd recommend this book to [...]

    26. If you have never read this book, go for it. It is a very interesting read if you like history and ancient myths and legends. You will question what you have believed all your life and will search out the authors other books. I could not get enough. The more I read the more I had to know. Your mind will adsorb this like a sponge and you will contemplate everything you thought you knew about life on earth.

    27. For such a short book, this is a powerhouse about the history of ancient Sumeria. The hypothesis put forward by Sitchin is extremely plausible and makes a whole lot of sense to me. I'm hooked on the subject and I see myself going through a stage where my reading materials are going to be on this subject. This is a good introduction to the ancient astronaut theory and Sitchin's work is referenced quite a lot in the recent History Channel's excellent series "Ancient Aliens".

    28. All I can say, for now, is that this book is mind-opening! Among thousands of things I've learned in this book, the fact that the Sumerians recorded our solar system so long ago I will never forget.

    29. Ok first of all: please don't take this serious. Sitchin is as close to a quack as it gets without being called a fraud right away. But god damned this is such a fun read. Just take this as some nice motivation to get deeper into REAL assyrian/sumerian/babylonical mythology and read the rest as a damn nice science fiction. I had a shitload of fun reading this, and I'm looking forward to read the other books.As I will not mention this in every review of his books, here is a link to a really good [...]
