I admit to having read this largely because I'd just finished Memnoch the Devil, wondered where all the theological and historical theories in it had come from, and found that the answer was Enoch. As a creation myth, this is a detailed and curious one, and it adds some background to the biography of John Dee that I so enjoyed last year, The Queen's Conjurer: The Science and Magic of Dr. John Dee, Advisor to Queen Elizabeth I. It further makes me smile to speculate that Rice's next book, The Vam...more

I liked book 1 the best and book 3 the least.
Book one is believed to be the oldest - dated as 2nd century B.C.

I have given wisdom to you and to your children, and tho...more

How do I review this? I mean, it's not your typical book, is it? It's an ancient religion. But what I would say is that it was fascinating - and a little spooky. I probably highlighted half the text. It's also a really good translation in that there is a lot of annotation to explain things that might throw you. It provides context where necessary for understanding.
