Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Lots of people have been waiting for this book for a long time. Thirty years ago, Sitchin began writing the Earth Chronicle series, which posits the theory (supposedly recorded in Sumerian myth) that extraterrestrials, the Aununnaki, arrived on Earth eons ago and genetically engineered humans. Much of this book is taken up with backstory, but that doesn't mean newbies can just jump in. Although Sitchin helpfully highlights key points in boldface, there's a lot to keep straight here. Readers attempting to deal with a couple hundred thousand years of history, ancient astronauts becoming human gods, and Sitchin's attempt to tie it all into biblical prophecies may wish they were on another planet. Yet the series has legions of devoted fans who have been waiting to learn if the Aununnaki are coming back and, if so, when. Sitchin notes that it's hard to determine where to start the countdown to the end days, which may be tied to the Aununnaki's reappearance. It might come in 2012. Too soon? How about 2087? Taking the long view? Try 2240. There's more, a lot more, but we won't risk a spoiler. Ilene Cooper

Review

“Sitchin’s fans will find this an interesting, though inconclusive read. As for the inevitably skeptical majority, they will take a certain amount of entertainment from wondering what each new chapter will bring: Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed by a nuclear bomb? Solomon’s Temple built on top of a spaceport? Muslim minarets simulating rockets ready for launch? Wow.” (Kirkus Reviews)

More About the Author

Zecharia Sitchin is an internationally acclaimed author and researcher whose books offer evidence that we are not alone in our own solar system. One of a handful of scholars able to read the Sumerian cuneiform tablets, he has combined archaeology, ancient texts, and the Bible with the latest scientific discoveries to retell the history and prehistory of mankind and planet Earth. His trailblazing books have been translated into more than twenty languages; his first one, an oft-quoted classic, celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of its publication. A graduate of the University of London and a journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he now lives and writes in New York.

He wants to know everything if it's real.

This book is very interesting from a supposed historical background and it has a different point of view.

Format: Hardcover
The End of Days is Sitchin's seventh and final book of The Earth Chronicles series, and while always interesting, it adds only a small amount of new information to the on-going saga. The first thirteen of sixteen chapters of the End of Days summarizes the key points of the previous Earth Chronicles books. If the reader wants a more in-depth analysis of a topic, they are referred to one of the earlier books. Throughout the summary, Sitchin is able to reveal new correlations across some of the ancient texts.

The last three chapters attempt to provide new insights regarding Jesus as Messiah, the Last Supper, the Bible Code, the number 666, the Piscean age and symbology, the Holy Grail, the origins of Islam, the Nazca lines, the moons and orbits of Uranus and Neptune, the Phobos moon of Mars, nuclear holocaust past and present (Armageddon(s)), Divine time versus Celestial time, and concludes with various theories on predicting the time of the "end of days" which mark the return of Niburu and the Anunnaki.

Unfortunately, most of the topics in the last 3 chapters are treated in a short and superficial manner, resulting in less than convincing arguments in some cases. Consequently, one wonders if Sitchin is out of his depth here. Also, Sitchin's comments regarding the origins of Islam and the present state of Islamic sentiment towards Israel are the premise for his assertion that we are facing a potentially history-repeating nuclear holocaust (Armageddon again). Some may find controversy in these "political" comments.

Other interesting points in this book: 1) As in his previous works, Sitchin avoids the whole issue of Anunnaki technology; 2) In previous books, the Sumerian reference to the "black-headed people" was said to refer to the peoples of Africa.

After traveling in Peru, Bolivia and Central America I realized that there are far more mysteries there than answers. Archaeologists have uncovered only very small portion of the ruins there. Evidence of advanced technology, particularly at Tiwanaku, is tantalizing. All the references to these sites in Sitchin's books I saw with my own eyes. That gives him real credibility. I know of no "expert" who disputes his facts, only his conclusions.

Sitchin's gift is his ability to tie together information from diverse disciplines like linguistics, astronomy and ancient texts. He shows clear examples of how they are in agreement that have not been previously mentioned. This points to explanations that sometimes diverge from what is academically accepted. Conventional archeology is increasingly straining too hard to incorporate recent discoveries in its narrative. New scientific disciplines may soon push the envelope into a revolution in our concept of history. When that happens I suspect they will find that Sitchen was on the right path already.

I don't agree with everything Sitchin writes, but do appreciate this book's synthesis of knowledge. It is thought provoking and well written. Unless you've read some of his previous books it may be difficult to grasp his overall concept. I highly recommend it.

To enjoy this book, you need to have read some of Sitchin's prior books and\or accept his thesis that humanity is descended from extraterrestrials. His interpretation of ancient texts is exciting though he rarely provides proof so if you're looking for a heavily footnoted scientific work, this isn't for you. For me it was an interesting companion theory to Paul LaViolette's "Earth Under Fire" and all William Henry's books on humanity's past and the meaning of 2012.

I wrote a paper in high school on the cyclical nature of history and my teacher in advanced english gave me an A+ but commented that she had never heard of the theory before!! Well, now it is well enunciated in Mr. Sitchin's encyclopedic newest Summary-type book about the cosmos!!! And, what's more astounding, the "ancients" KNEW OF these things!! HOW DID THEY KNOW?? Well, you can get the full story from this well-documented and thorough book about our ancient history and how it is winding up into the present/close future. Why we don't learn more about these ancient Egyptian, Sumerian and Indian texts in school is a sad commentary on our current cultural/spiritual tunnel vision. Those ancient people knew of all the known planets in our current solar system.!!!! HOW DID THEY KNOW THIS?? - and the medieval church didn't have a clue!!(Is that because they burnt many books in Alexandria, considering the info heretical??) This is the Best scholarly AND entertaining book out in a long time other that Steven Greer's latest!!! The "Ancients" and the "End Times" are probably coming soon, and you should know something about them before they arrive undeniably . . .

Format: Hardcover
I consider it an honor to be the first reviewer of "The End of Days." I've been waiting for it since I heard Zecharia speak of it a while ago and I've already bought four copies, so you know I'm a fan. In fact, I consider Zecharia Sitchin to be on a par with Albert Einstein in terms of his genius, clarity, diligence, patience, and the courage to reveal his genius to the world. I've read this book through once and I'm starting to read it again because there is so much in this book to absorb and coordinate that I feel that I will not have gotten what Zecharia is really telling us until I know all the "players," places, and situations involved without hesitation or having to look them up. I'm already filling the pages of my own essay exploring key points raised in this book and I'm sure that once you read it you'll be as excited and ready for the future as I am. And thanks to Zecharia Sitchin for devoting his long life to the ultimate topic with such thorough and important results - this book, like all his others, has been life changing for me - the truth is in there! I hope he writes many more books. Enjoy!
