Publisher's Summary

The product of 30 years of intensive research, The Twelfth Planet argues persuasively that humanity sprang from extraterrestrial forebears. Sitchin provides startling evidence of a superior race of beings who once inhabited the earth. You'll hear the story of how they traveled here from the stars and planted the genetic seed that would ultimately blossom into a remarkable species - the human being.

Copyright ©1976 by Zecharia Sitchen; Recording (P)1997 by Alternative Audio

    "an interesting take on the origins of people"

    This is an alternative explanation of the garden of eden and the origins of people and religions. This explanation makes just as much (non)sense as the old testament and this book is just as (un)provable. The only this explanation is that this explanation is more fun.

    "Though a Complete Thought..."

    I am in line with a lot of the theories within the book, but I an uncomfortable with subscribing to Sitchin's overly simplistic approach. Also, simple fact checks put many of the most fundamental points on shaky ground. I went in thinking that Sitchin had more credentials and experience than he actually does (did). I'll leave the review short. It was a great listen and very thought provoking, but take it as a starting point toward this kind of research. Fact check.

    Story
    "And thats the way it was!"

    And that's the way it was, until proven differently. Very interesting topic that was described well by the author. The narration was good also. I highly recommend all people with religious backgrounds and others to get this book. Maybe a road trip to the Grand Canyon would open people's eyes more to the history of the world and the great flood. If the Great Flood could carve away all that tons and tons of rock and acres and acres of land then it can easily push some stones around at Puma Punku.

    "This explains everything!"

    This explains everything so well!
    So many pieces fall together.
    This is a work of genius.
    It is time to reevaluate everything.

    Story
    "Interesting thesis, don't expect a story."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I was hoping for more. I find the Ancient Alien Theory fascinating, and there were moments of interest in this work, but no real narrative. This felt incomplete, more like a primer for more in depth works. I have not explored any other works by Sitchin, but perhaps The 12th Planet should be considered more of a companion work?


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The relationships outlined (and that's all they were: outlines) piqued my interest, and I wished to explore them further, but that was not to be. As everything else in this book, narratives were left hanging, and massive expanses of time were jumped to and fro, in the most jarring of ways.


    Do you think The Twelfth Planet needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The 12th Planet cannot stand on its own.

    "Entertaining if you don't take it seriously"

    While this book poses some interesting ideas based on ancient texts, it's very hard for me to believe these aren't just nice coincidences. Hey, anything's possible, but extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, and simple hypotheses do not equal "evidence." That's all fine, and everyone's BS detector is set to different points, but what really bugged me about the book wasn't so much the hypotheses, because really any hypothesis is a valid one from my standpoint. It's going from there to "proof" that is really the key, and Sitchen seems to decide at some point that just piling up multiple hypotheses equals proof. He decides for us, he doesn't let us decide. He jumps into statement that either he proclaims blatantly as "fact" or at least implies it by his language. If he simply argued this as his opinion based on the sources he's used, that would have been great, but he jumps way beyond that. To me that becomes completely unscientific and thus completely invalid. Some will say that science is to constraining for things like this, and to you I say, fine, but wild, fantastic guesses don't usually prove true, and besides, in science you ARE allowed to make such guesses, but you also have to make guesses that can either be SOMEHOW proven right or wrong...
