An enjoyable read,
This review is from: The 12th Planet: Book One of the Earth Chronicles (Mass Market Paperback)
So there's another planet in our solar system on a much larger elliptical orbit, but it's there and it passes by us every few thousand years. These aliens created man as a worker ant to mine the planet and bleed us dry of our natural resources. This sounds way too far fetched when said bluntly but with further exposure to Sitchin's theories it becomes well somewhat plausible. How did the Sumerians know so much about astronomy and why do ancient clay tablets and sculptures seem to depict highly advanced flying equipment. Do the stories of the ancient Gods actually stem from real events. And what about the Bible, Adam and eve, The flood and all those epic stories ? Do we want the truth ?
I thought this book dragged its heels a little at the start owing to the sheer depth of information that had to be conveyed to the reader. The theories are intriguing and the allure of what's to come is a tantalising quest for more information. This has me confused yet deeply interested and although the Earth chronicles is a major undertaking, to leave it unread would be a shame.
