4.0 out of 5 stars First Sitchin experience, 19 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Twelfth Planet (Earth Chronicles): 1 (Mass Market Paperback)
I have just finished reading this first part of seven part series.
Indeed the content is thought provoking and convincingly written. The persuasion for Mr Sitchin's works are seemingly carefully selected. The illustrations to support his theory are all hand sketches - I was slightly disappointed that these were not actual photographs of the actual artefacts referred to in the text. I felt, that this depreciated his argument tangibly.
The beginning of the book was very interesting and read as, on the most part, quite factual.
You will find some very interesting theories behind how our solar system today formed it's modern structure (I won't give too much away).
What you will find whilst reading through the 422 pages of this theoretical works is that it indeed tends to begin quite feasibly and wavers ever so closely to the far fetched and bizarre! Progressively unsupported by definite source of reference and tends to draw from former conclusions made previously in the book by the author himself.

However, this book is undeniably fascinating and stipulates a very much alternative view on the origins of man. Indeed he almost convinces the reader that his work is factual - every last line!
Excellently written and I have ambitions to obtain the complete series (Earth chronicles).

I would definitely recommend this to the open minded.
