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

“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)

i have all Sitchen's books and i had to reread this one the other day to clarify in my mind about how the deluge and possibly a space moon collision during the circa 10,900 BCE orbit, knocked Nibiru out of wack so it shortened it's orbit 150 years, which is why everyone figuring the end times is wrong. 'all those people waiting for the Anunnaki to come back should read this book so they know that in the most recent orbit which should have come about 160 BCE, arrived early in 556 BCE and almost all the Anunnaki got back on and went away don;t hold your breath waiting for them.
Mr. Sitchin has done us all a great service by his dedication to meticulously researching Sumerian tablets and other stories from the middle east, including the Bible. He's a very smart man, just trying to tell the real story as it is written. This is part of his great series about the Earth Chronicles.. The Sumerians tell an incredible story about our origins and the origins of civilization. And, similar stories of "gods" who came from the sky are found all over the world. If you think this is fiction and fantasy, well, long ago it was the news, history. We have to ask ourselves, WHY did so many ancient people tell the same stories, and record them as fact, true history? They are not myths. Try to understand what these people were saying and you'll never look at religion or world history the same. Read his series carefully and take another look at the Bible, epic of Gilgamesh, stories from the far east, China, N. America, S. America, etc. We need to know who we are as humans, and how we were "created".
And while you're reading his books, remember how much dedication the author put in to learn to read these ancient tablets. It took years of painstaking research, travel, etc. Thank you, Mr. Sitchin. Very fascinating information you are providing.
This book covers the transition of civilization away from worshipping the "gods" from Nibiru, and the movement toward monotheism. The End of Days as prophesized is a judgment day followed by peace, which was preordained by the gods... Earth's destiny. And, as a "destiny", it cannot be changed by our free will as can "fate".
But as a prophesy shrouded in codes, Sitchin explores the possible dates for it to occur. Of course, due to the many ways of keeping time in the Universe, not to mention that different civilizations had different calendars, one specific date cannot be ascertained.
With all the events taking place right now, we seem to be reliving the 21st Century B.C.E., which ended in what appeared to be (or resemble) a nuclear war. But is the End of Days actually Armageddon, or just a transformation into a new cycle? Will the "gods" return? Read the book.
