I’m not sure what ancient tablets he used exactly and how much of this came out of his imagination, but it was a pretty neat read either way. This was the first book I’ve read by this author, but I guess he’s real famous and has been writing stuff like this for years. It’s all about how these aliens came to Earth thousands of years ago to get gold to fix their atmosphere. Then, they made humans to help them mine the gold. I thought it was a pretty neat book, and the theories all came together n ...more

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, ...more
The revelations in this book might be "too much" for general public so I recommend you to start with Michael Tellinger's "Slave Species of God" first. Tellinger successfully waters down the harsh facts of Sumerian history by throwing some genetic, astronomical and historical information while making measured references to The Lost Book of Enki.

Zecharia Sitchin was an amazing scholar and a passionate researcher whose work is totally underrated and wrongly hijacked by the wrong sort of audience. I

You can go to YouTube and listen to Josh Reeves from The Global Reality read this Book of Truths. It will trip you out. The bible does not tell you the truth. People open your EYES and MINDS. This is the TRUE HISTORY of our PLANET and HUMANITY. Yes, this was written over 5000 years ago! They even talk about the FACE on MARS!

Awesome book. Reading this gave me a much better understanding of the origins of much of our history, religion and very make-up as humans.

I highly recommend the book to those who might be open-minded about learning of our history and origins, but do not recommend it to anyone who is either immersed in religion or religious belief systems, nor to those who are totally skeptic about anything that is outside what we have been taught and exposed to during our lives.

All I can say is Wow! Keep an open mind. Another reviewer said it was about time science and religion come together. I totally agree!
This book is weird. The whole thing is written like Yoda speaks, super hard to follow.
Possibly THE most important book written of ALL times!!!!

Let me also say that I have read all of Sitchin's books and found most, the first 3 or 4 at least, to be fascinating. I anxiously awaited this "Enki" book, because it was billed as a narrative that would fill in a lot of the gaps and answer a lot of my questions. It failed. It is written in a poetic style that is tedious and irritating; the reverse sentence structure in particular (think Yoda).

Rather than give any depth, insight, or fill in the gaps, it glosses over things as if they are a given
Kitabı bitirdikten sonra iki dakika kadar yazılanların gerçek olduğunu varsaydım ve Miğverdibi savaşından beri böylesine heyecanlanmadığımı fark ettim. Aşırı uç ve inanılması zor şeyleri amatör lig maçı anlatıyormuş gibi basit ve sıradan anlatsa da bugün inanmamız için dayatılan birçok şeyden daha mantıklı ve inandırıcı geliyor insana.

O passado irá tornar-se o nosso futuro? A humanidade está destinada a repetir os eventos ocorridos em outro planeta, distante da Terra? Em 'O Livro Perdido de Enki', pode-se observar um relato autobiográfico concebido pelo Senhor Enki, um dos deus anunnaki, que conta a história da chegada desses extraterrestres à Terra, vindos do 12° planeta, chamado Nibiru. O objetivo de sua colonização era a busca pelo ouro, sendo este utilizado para reabastecer a atmosfera que estava morrendo em seu planeta n

Rocked my world. After reading this book you may rethink our 'history.' Straight translation of the words of our true maker.
This book is the true history of mankind that we have forgotten. Everything makes more sense having read this book. It's amazing.
A fascinating read, but I suppose only those who love ancient history and ancient mysteries could appreciate it. This translation of the Sumerian tablets dealing with their myth of creation was done by Zecharia Sitchin, a proponent of the ancient astronaut theory. Regardless of his views (which I think in general may have a lot of truth), he was a scholar and an expert in the Sumerian language. Any ancient history buff would enjoy this.

The best myth I ever read. If Sitchin's translations of the Sumerian tablets this is based on are to be trusted, this is the Myth the Old Testament is based upon. Real good shite. (yes, flakey and far out too.)
well I learned about Mars..... Early humanoid life.... and how the world was made...if your trying to figure out the Book of genesis this is the perfect read....One of my favorite authors
My all time favourite one the best book on the beginning of humankind!
A must-read for all who are interested in the ancient civilizations and the beginning humanity on Earth!

Another amazing book written thousands of years before the Old Testament with the same stories set in a more congruous context. This will blow your mind.
Absolutely the most mind altering book ever read in my opinion. This one is the Rosetta stone of all time, which opened my eyes to the true origin of man.

Literal Translations of original Sumerian and Babylonian texts. Another piece of the puzzle, I do suppose...

“That which for all time construction shall determine I have laid out; Away from Eridu, where dry land begins, my quarters shall be, Laarsa will be its name, a place for directing it shall become. On the banks of the Burannu, the River of Deep Waters, will it be located, A twin thereof a city shall in future arise, Lagash I shall name it. Between the two on the plans a line have I drawn, Sixty leagues thereafter a healing city shall come into being, A city of your own it shall be, Shurubak, the Haven City, I shall name it.” 0 likes
