    " I had a discussion with a friend a few weeks before reading this about how you have to filter through what people tell you, and that half of it will be truth and half embellishment, so you need to decide which parts are believable for yourself. This book is a great example. There's a lot of interesting content, and some very intriguing theories, mixed in with some less interesting nonsense and bad interpretation. I would give it four stars if it were presented in a more organized or captivating fashion, or if the author didn't use the words "obviously," "clearly, and "undoubtedly" coupled with exclamation points whenever saying something he had no compelling support for. Interesting enough that I'll read the rest of the series though. "

    " It's a difficult read, but a very interesting concept. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Bodo | 2/13/2014

    " I love reading about the Sumerians. Admittedly, some of theories put forward are a bit of a stretch, but I like the outside the box thinking. Read it with an open mind, but with a grain of salt too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne Dome | 2/3/2014

    " In this hefty thesis novel, Sitchen proposes the theory that the ancient tales of te Anunnaki were actually records of a lost civilization of spacemen who came to earth under the leader Anu, and his two sons, Enki and Enlil. This book is an introduction to various parts of the Ancient Astronaugt theory, supported by evidence found in ancient texts. It is a daunting read if all one enjoys is fiction, but if you can get around the archaeological jargon, its a fantastic well of ideas. "

    " Awesome twist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 1/24/2014

    " 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! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 1/21/2014

    " A radical hypothesis of Earth's origins and Man's celestial ancestors.The 12th Planet treats as fact, not myth, the tales of Creation,the Deluge,the Tower of Babel, and the Nefilim who married the daughters of man. By weaving together the Biblical narrative with Sumerian and Babylonian clay-tablet texts,it challanges the established notions of the origins of Earth and mankind,and offers a compelling and sometimes disturbing alternative history and prehistory of both. "

    " Reading this when I was 11 didn't leave much of a good impression.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thomas Taylor | 1/10/2014

    " When you live in a world that is run by religion, it is refreshing to read something as contradictory as The 12th Planet. Zacharia Sitchin puts across some intriguing points. I find it a lot easier to believe the Ancient Astronaut theory than any religious book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra | 1/3/2014

    " Re-read this book from 20 years ago - still the ultimate "ancient aliens" book. Yeah - I'm very open minded about how similar the Sumarian and Bible human creation and origin writings were. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 12/18/2013

    " bizarre, only read the first half, kinda outdated and complex creationist theories "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rodwen | 12/11/2013

    " World changing "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andre du Plessis | 12/4/2013

    " Learned about the 12th planet and alternative history as described in ancient sumerian tablets. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andria | 11/8/2013

    " Absolutely horrible drivel, I couldn't get through it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erik Graff | 11/2/2013

    " I read this on the recommendation of a friend, who, to his credit, later gave me a standard history of Sumerian civilization by means of which I was able to better evaluate some of Sitchin's outrageous claims. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 10/22/2013

    " Well-written, entertaining, interesting piece of pseudoscience theory (mankind was put on earth by aliens from a '12th planet'). Believe it or not. I don't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 F. John | 8/27/2013

    " Very interesting. Posits that there's another planetary body in an eliptical orbits and every time it comes close to the Earth, these superior beings visit Earth and Earth experiences these bursts in civilization... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jorey | 8/3/2013

    " An eye opening, provocative book! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 David Agranoff | 6/25/2013

    " Why did I do this to myself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven Stencil | 10/20/2012

    " Damn good book, must read and youtube watch. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debi Seymour | 2/22/2012

    " I've read this whole series and even though they are very technical, I found them to be very insightful and extremely interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 9/9/2011

    " Interestig concept, very plausible. Makes one think hard about religion. Book is hard to get through. Dense reading material but worth it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 F. | 5/3/2011

    " Very interesting. Posits that there's another planetary body in an eliptical orbits and every time it comes close to the Earth, these superior beings visit Earth and Earth experiences these bursts in civilization... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 4/18/2011

    " The Earth Chronicles series is like a thriller novel for archaeology graduates. Whether I believe Sitchin or not, I put that completely aside; the book in and of itself is quite well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amdobritt | 1/16/2011

    " Just started reading this book and find it hard to put down. Rather fascination information about the Sumerians. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Garymmark | 1/2/2011

    " Just started this one. Riveting... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zoe | 11/14/2010

    " Interesting and well researched a bit technical. some of his assumptions are far fetched but most of it seems very sane and very important t consider for anyone interested in human origins. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 10/4/2010

    " All I have to say is that if 10% of his research is correct..WOW



    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 9/13/2010

    " I am 88% convinced that aliens invented earthlings. That's an A+!!!

    Just kidding, it's a high B. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dennis | 8/14/2010

    " Sitchin interprets ancient Sumerian texts to document the formation of our planet and illustrates alien intervention since the dawn of time. "
