Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

One of the charms of Zecharia Sitchin is his tendency to take ancient writings as fact as opposed to myth. For example, according to clay tablets discovered by archeologists, Gilgamesh, a king of ancient Sumeria, was punished by the gods for raping female subjects on their wedding day--a particularly naughty, though not uncommon, pastime of ancient royalty. Snickering, the tricky gods created a double of him, which, as you can imagine, created havoc in the king's life. Some time later, directed by his goddess mother, Gilgamesh walked with his double to Lebanon to attain immortality. Sitchin ponders that perhaps the double had superhuman strength and en route built a second Stonehenge discovered in the Golan Heights by Israelis during the 1967 Six Days War. Hmmm. As Sitchin concedes, there's really no way to tell who actually built this hoary structure, but the in-depth archeological and historical research gathered here to support his musings concerning an extraterrestrial secret code to construct humankind is fascinating beyond belief. --P. Randall Cohan --This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.

Review

“Readers interested in the Kabbalah and in numbers mysticism will find Sitchin provocative.” (UFO Magazine)

“In terms of scholarship and research, his books are light years away from those other popular authors.” (New York Tribune)

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.

I will miss this author.

This book is great because one does not need to have read Sitchin's other books.

If he is just 50% right it stands as Awesome.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Book VI of the Earth Chronicles, "The Cosmic Code", continues Zechariah Sitchin's saga of the Nefilim and their influence on the fate of mankind. In his usual style of inciteful speculation and careful culling of evidence from ancient materials, Sitchin has added a number of new threads to the tapestry of the extraterrestrial intervention hypothesis.
If this is the first book of Sitchin's that you will read, you will find there is enough introductory and review material to bring you up to speed on the tale as told thus far. For the veteran Sitchin reader there is a wealth of new and provocative material to amaze and stimulate further investigation. Those of us who have been enthralled by the "Bible Code" research and revelations will find intelligent and useful insights into it's precursor codes in the cunieform writing system. Kabbalists will find that they too are indebted to the Annunaki for much of the wisdom and understanding contained within their field of study.
For this reader the most fascinating aspect of Sitchin's recent research embodied in "The Cosmic Code" concerns the relationship between the Hebrew alphabet and the genetic code. This is an area that I have been working in for many years. In personal correspondence with Mr. Sitchin regarding this relationship between the language of life and the language of the Torah I outlined the evidence for a deep analogy between the Hebrew letters and the amino acids of the genetic code. With his usual insight, Mr. Sitchin responded, "... Hebrew is just a form of Akkadian, and that the current Hebrew alphabet ("square letters") emanated in the Aramaic. If there is commonality, I would seek it in the earlier Sumerian phase.

This was my first Sitchin book. I finished it days ago and can't stop talking about it. It is a brilliant piece of work for its daring re-telling of ancient texts in a brave "tell it like it is" style. Whether or not the author truly believes the things he reports doesn't matter. That, I don't care. What I appreciate is the author's objective reporting. I recommend this book to anyone for its content and trust its completeness in the information presented. This book will challenge and excite everyone who is interested in religion, history, and human origins. I did find flaws in just a very few references to New Testament scripture, but don't let that slow you down. This book clearly summarizes and portrays the dawn of man, our purpose, our fate and destiny, not from human philiosophy, but from real, tangible, historical texts and tablets that are supported by hard evidence. What I love about this book is what I read in between the lines: Sitchin is on a real, personal quest and he is not afraid to turn over any stone to find "the grail." Let this book be an inclusive support to the monotheistic texts, in my opinion. Then, let yourself be the judge. Drive on, Mr. Sitchin. I'm just as eager as you.

As a strong fan of Sitchin, I was a bit disappointed at this rehash of his earlier work. While there are some new avenues to explore, they are few and far between. A new reader of Sitchen will enjoy this - but those of us who have faithfully read everything in the Earth Chronicles, plus the other books he has written, may feel a little cheated. We've been there and heard all this before. I wish he would take his series to the logical conclusion and write about where the Annunnaki went, when Nibiru will orbit near Earth again - and who Yahweh really is. Maybe I'm not reading carefully enough, but, at various times in various books, Yahweh has been Marduk, Sin and Ea, plus the Supreme Being of Nibiru.

Mr. Sitchin drives it all home with his latest book. He takes a lot of the important material from his other books and sort of "sums it all up." If you only buy one Sitchin Book, make it this one. It is certainly his best(in my opinion.)

Format: Mass Market Paperback
After a long wait, I was thrilled to finally see what new secrets Zecharia Sitchin had uncovered from his extensive studies of ancient Sumerian texts. This installment of "The Earth Chronicles" postulates an ancient alphabet, a "secret of the gods." What you'll be surprised to learn is what this alphabet is based upon, and that this alphabet could be the source of the three-letter Hebrew root words. Characteristically, Sitchin provides considerable support for his theories from many fields of study. Readers new to the Sitchin material will be happy to know that they can pick up this book and gain an understanding of the basis of the Earth Chronicles without being lost. As for the seasoned veterans, who among us couldn't use a little refresher course on the enormous amount of data Sitchin has provided? "The Cosmic Code" makes all other books written about Bible codes a freshman attempt at best. We've got it here from, unequivocally, THE MAN.

Another great book by Zachariah Sitchen, I have read all eight books of his Earth chronicles and they are all very mind boggling.
