Product Description

Review

"Sitchin's works are outstandingly different from all others that present this central theme. His linguistic skills in the languages of antiquity and his pursuit of the earliest available texts and artifacts make possible the wealth of photographs and line drawings appearing in his books from tablets, monuments, murals, pottery, and seals." --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Zecharia Sitchin was born in Russia and raised in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. He was distinguished by his ability to translate and interpret ancient Sumerian and other ancient texts. A graduate of the University of London, he worked as a journalist and editor in Israel for many years before making his home in New York City. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes the New out of New World 28 Nov 2002
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Lost Realms is one of the most speculative and interesting books in Sitchin's Earth Chronicles series. The ruins and structures of Egypt and the Near East have been wondered at and studied for centuries, and there is a veritable wealth of information from Near Eastern papyri, stelae, monuments, and similar artifacts. The ruins of Mesoamerica have largely been rediscovered only in the past couple of hundred years; indeed, unknown wonders surely remain hidden by South America's dense jungles. The immensely important records and artifacts of New World societies such as the Mayan, Inca, and Aztec civilizations were for the most part lost and destroyed at the hands of greedy Spanish conquistadors, and further site degradation has resulted from the pilfering of ancient stones by recent natives of the area for use in the construction of their own buildings. Thus, the earliest history of the lower Americas remains frustratingly impossible to understand. We are left with giant edifices with significant similarities to Near Eastern constructions in size, orientation, and purpose, many of them seemingly containing very advanced structures built for unknown purposes. Even the age of the artifacts is hotly debated, with many scientists refusing to believe scientific findings point back to as early as 2000 B.C.
Sitchin's arguments fit very nicely with the history of Sumeria, Egypt, and the Near East that he laid out in his earlier books. Basically, he argues that the Americas were exploited by the gods for the production of gold and other metals such as tin, which the Andean mountains in particular hold in abundance. Metals were refined here and shipped back to the Near Eastern lands long before Columbus ever sailed the ocean blue.

4.0 out of 5 stars compelling and evocative 3 Nov 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The first three books of the Earth chronicles are set mainly in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, however book four takes us deep into the jungles of South America and onto the dizzying heights of the Andes. A land where we believe that the Mayans, Aztecs and Incas ruled and created massive cities with imposing temples and complicated irrigation systems. Sitchin takes these beliefs and turns them inside out.

The book opens with a detailed account of the avarice of the conquistadors and the savagery they inflicted upon the natives while fuelling their lust for gold and silver. Sitchin makes a very forthright and lucid argument for the South american Indians being direct descendents of Cain, with the mark of Cain playing a quite interesting part. Much of the book is taken up with descriptions of the huge structures contained within some of the cities and explanations of how this work was simply beyond the ability of the Indians. Who then were the architects and builders of such complicated and astrologically influenced marvels ? Is it coincidence that many of the buildings in Ancient Egypt match incredibly well with those in the Americas ? And indeed many of the Gods share names and histories, the spanish priests were amazed to learn of the tale of the deluge that was almost exactly the same as the one contained in the bible. How could this be ?

Sitchin provides well researched evidence that these major cities were created by the Gods and contained landing strips, mining facilities, refineries and factories for the purpose of extracting as much gold as possible for transportation to the home planet Nbiriu. The Indians merely moved in when the Gods had left.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding and intelligent offering. 30 Sep 1997
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Few persons are ready to read what this man has researched. His conclusions require an open and somewhat disciplined mind devoid of pre-conceived or conditioned response to anything considered critical to fundimental teachings. He touches what we all crave to understand! Where did we come from and what makes us the way we are. If one chooses not to think, don't read him. Otherwise, feel the thrill of a fresh wind blowing through clogged passages of the mind. I sincerely appreciate his efforts. Clifton H. Bush

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but unconvincing 23 Nov 2002
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I love all Sitchin's books but I am very cautious about his theories, since he's made very unscientific claims about languages before and he is suspiciously quiet about the later history of his postulated "12th" planet Nibiru that supposedly caused the end of the last ice age and is supposed to come close to the earth every 3600 years. According to his chronology, Nibiru should have passed the earth in 100BC, but there is no historical record of any such thing, nor is there evidence of geological upheavals at that time. The info in this book is not all original either, I have seen it before in the work of Robert Bauval, Erich von Daniken and many others. But still an entertaining read.

4.0 out of 5 stars good 12 Feb 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Interesting content - quite a difficult read. One has to get used to the names of planets, people, etc., and they are foreign to the English ear

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredible detail, I just wonder how true! 3 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book, along with the others in the series is a fascinating read. If any more than 20% of it is actually true, then we had all better re-arrange how we think about human history and about our solar system! Even if none of it is true, which I have to say seems almost impossible, then you have to take your hat of to Sitchins imagination and way of distilling historic facts from the past. So much seems to add up that the problem is now working out why the human race has been so mis-informed on an enormous scale about so many things for so many generations.
