Zecharia Sitchin's Earth Chronicles series is based on the premise that mythology is not physiologically based, psychologically metaphorical, or culturally allegorical but rather the repository of ancient memories, and that the Bible ought to be read as a historical scientific document. While the debate regarding the origins of myth is far from conclusive, and the dangers of assuming that the subjectivity of the reader/researcher will not intervene are obvious, Stitchin is an expert in ancient language and history. While the reader may scoff at his unfortunately characteristic long leaps of logic resulting in conclusions (such as that gods from outer space destroyed a spaceport on the Sinai Peninsula four millennia ago), he does present some compelling ideas not easily ignored. The series, of which this is the third volume, deserves a read by those fascinated with the search for the origins of humankind who don't mind spending time separating wheat from chaff. --P. Randall Cohan --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
“With precision, Sitchin recreates a calendar of Biblical events…The saga of ancient dramatic times is told with many insights.” (Bnai Zion Voice)

These are great books and deserve a higher level of attention to accuracy in the translation to bits and bytes.
Read this and be ready for an enlightening journey through mankind's history. Be ready to put up with a poor quality translation. Given the fact that the whole premise of the story relies upon accurately translating ancient texts with an eye toward the Sumerian origins
of the original accounts share ePub does Sitchen a disservice.
Then again it perfectly illustrates how historical records are lost, mangled, or misinterpreted over time by the very people claiming custodianship.
Five stars is what the book deserves. Four stars is what it gets. If the publisher ever takes time to correct, clarify, and improve upon this poorly done OCR version of the printed books I will revise my rating.
His books are eye-opening, to say the least.
That said, it's a fun read. Additionally, I do not consider it all that far fetched that the ancient stories, even the fantastic ones, are in fact recollections of actual past events otherwise long forgotten. So if you're prepared to suspend your disbelief, the whole series of books is a fun ride involving extraterrestrials, genetic engineering, interplanetary warfare, and other things, all presented as logical conclusions of a serious and dedicated study of myth, legend, and archaeology.
