Book 3 didn't do it for me like #1 of The Earth Chronicles. It was too dry and laborious to get through, filled with more the theories and facts Zitchin lays out in Book 1. Maybe because it's like a dense encyclopaedia of the distant past battles & was difficult to find a thread to care about without getting bogged down or bored by all the details.
I haven't read Book 2 yet, but I'm hoping it's more enjoyable like Book 1. I like Z. Sitchin and find his theories interesting. I've rea

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

Sitchin continues his "Earth Chronicles" with the third installment, "The Wars of Gods and Men." A provocative narration, retelling the long considered myths of ancient battles as factual events of our Earth's history. Sifting through ancient Sumerian clay tablets and other sources of antiquity, such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, the author tells of a time when not men but gods ruled the planet and fate of humanity. Once again, basing his claims on texts chiseled and written by scribes of days past, ...more

This was the third, and last, of The Earth Chronicles books by Zecharia Sitchin that I read on the recommendation of a friend. This same friend had been kind enough to give me a real history of Sumerian culture as well, so I felt sort of obligated. The more I read about ancient Sumeria, the less even barely plausible did Sitchin appear.

Where is he coming from anyway? It's too elaborate to be joke, isn't it?
As with all of Sitchin's books, this one did not disappoint. He takes you back to the time when the 'gods' where in the sky for all on planet earth to see. And how man emulated them by engaging in their own wars on behalf of the 'gods' they were loyal to. A very fascinating alternative historical account.

Sodom and Gomorrah, the flight from Egypt, the conquer of Canaan---wars between gods to control Earth and mankind!
Though this begins with dry academia, it regains some of the thrill you felt when reading The 12th Planet. Well done, good read.

Now I know why there's a great desert like area in Africa. I've always wondered why as a child. Great read. On to the next in this series!

I started this book planning to be sceptical but very sure that I'd be blown away... And truth is I wasn't.
For me perhaps the most interesting thing about this book was the overview of Asian mythology and the very interesting parallels with current world religions. The fact that the symbol of the nibiru was the cross, the sacrifice of bulls in ancient Sumeria, the deluge myth were all very interesting.
Also eye-opening were the parallels drawn between different world mythologies.

★ - Most books with this rating I never finish and so don't make this list. This one I probably started speed-reading to get it over with.
★★ - Average. Wasn't terrible, but not a lot to recommend it. Probably skimmed parts of it.
★★★ - Decent. A few good ideas, well-written passages, interesting characters, or the like.
★★★★ - Good. This one had parts that inspired me, impressed me, made me laugh out loud, made me think - it got positive reactions and most of the rest of it was pretty decent too.

Ended up liking this book more than I thought I was going to. Though there is a bit of rehash from the previous volumes it isn't enough to completely bore you. This volume he moves his theory into the ancient world and how the annunaki influenced the ancient middle east. The thing that gets me is he stops short of actually naming who he thought Yahweh was, though if I was to take a stab I would say Enlil. Maybe he announces it in a future book I guess I will just have to wait and see. This book ...more

I love Zecharia's passion for his research and sharing it all with us. His book is packed full of meticulously gathered information. He is one of the most respected and foremost experts in his field. I do warn the reader if your not a big fan of the his you may not finish the book. It took me a while to finish and only read it between other books. For me it was a thirst for knowledge so if that's what your looking for then you found your book. But it will not fill your desire for entertainment.

This is one of the most fascinating books I have ever read. It introduces the "gods" of the Earth, how they made humans and what transpired until about 1950BC. This is the third in a series called the Earth Chronicles;he uses archeological evidence and translations plus the Bible as sources. Well worth reading.

This was my introduction to the Sitchin chronicles. He shares some interesting theories which are often quoted by the Ancient Aliens programs, but if you read beyond that part, the familial intrigue and soap operas displayed by the Sumarian gods makes for a lot of fun.

He is repeating himself and so busy trying to prove the Old and New Testament in each ancient text he's read. He also do not give the details which text he's translated. I do not trust his translations. I felt like I was reading a science fiction book. Cannot take him seriously.

Even if you don't believe that we are descendants of a cross breed between an alien race and earth born primates, allowing yourself to see history the way Zecharia Sitchin does causes the ground to shift a bit beneath you.

Sitchin had probably a stroke and after that used a lot of revealed or maybe channeled information. Anyway, his interpretation never holds regarding the outer space origin of the Anunnaki, the rockets or the gold mining purpose.
Otherwise, he is a great fiction wrighter.
