Publisher's Summary

Over the years, startling evidence has been unearthed, challenging established notions of the origins of Earth and life on it and suggesting the existence of a superior race of beings who once inhabited our world.

The product of 30 years of intensive research, The 12th Planet is the first book in Zecharia Sitchin's prophetic Earth Chronicles series - a revolutionary body of work that offers indisputable documentary proof of humanity's extraterrestrial forefathers. Travelers from the stars, they arrived eons ago, and planted the genetic seed that would ultimately blossom into a remarkable species...called Man.

The 12th Planet brings to life the Sumerian civilization, presenting millennia-old evidence of the existence of Nibiru, the home planet of the Anunnaki, and of the landings of the Anunnaki on Earth every 3,600 years, and reveals a complete history of the solar system as told by these early visitors from another planet.

Tough listen to start with

Many names make the beginning of this book really painful but, it is a very scholarly work not, a simple fictional story. I found the connections with the bible stunning and it really held my attention. Listening to this is often like reading a text book, so be warned.

Good after the first half!

If you can make it through the first 5 1/2 hours if the book, it gets interesting. He names EVERY single mythological name in human history. The last half is good.

Bel Davies should Sitchin-pronounce "Annunaki."

The narrator has chosen to do some dubious pronunciations (AnNUnki instead of Sitchin's AnnuNAHki). Sitchin's work is worthy; Bel Davies' work not...

This book can be an eye opening for Humanity

After listening to the 12th planet from Zachariah stitching and from his interpretations it makes more since to me about the history of the Earth and of mankind. his finding helps fill holes in the story's in the Bible that are not clearly explained. I feel I have a more accepting since we're Humanity came from given if even 1% is true of his findings. I feel that as though mankind is ready for the truth for all truths to come out into the open. please listen to this book with an open mind and you'll find it more enjoyable.

Confused

I love this kind of stuff, but after I bought the book, I ran into a lot of info about Sitchin. Most of the info is saying the author has been very misleading, a few saying, he’s completely making things up. So, I’m lost.
I understand arguments from both sides, but a few of the people calling Sitchin out are also believers in Ancient visitors.
So I’m confused, but I have to give this two thumbs down

Whoa, dude!

1st off, I want to be a narrator
2nd, fascinating read. even recent discoveries and theories (2 come to mind, I'm sure alot of ppl are familiar with) that totally support his translations. every transition, comparison or tie in was super smooth and logical.

the 12th planet

such a great enlightening book. people think this is myth but in reality it's not. this is our true history. this is the human story the truth of our past and where we might going in the future. hopefully we'll be able to explore the universe and find out for ourselves. two thumbs up a must read or listen. the narrator is great. he did a great job.

Worthwhile read

An interesting take on ancient civilisation history albeit with much assumption. With that in mind you need to read with some salt. However, if even 25% of this account is true it would smash down our ideas of ancestry and history. .

I tend to agree with Graham Hancock’s work on ancient civilisations (read Fingerprints of the Gods) and importantly the evidence presented on the asteroid that ended the last ice age some 13000 years ago. In contrast, Sitchin’s assumption of an Antarctic ice shelf detachment is thus incorrect, but this does not weaken the narrative, Hancock’s presentation actually strengthens it. Moreover, Hancock’s work concentrates on the near ancient, not far ancient civilisations. . .

It is clear, in general, that what we’ve been told about our past, our civilisations, and place in this world, is largely a lie. There is so much evidence out there for those willing to look beyond the government based narratives that there is far far more going on and has gone on than we have been led to believe. Reading works such as this and Hancock’s help in opening ones eyes to the real world around us.

On to the next book!

Narrator difficult to follow

The book although well researched and very thorough, was ludicrously difficult to follow. The narrator has the most dreary and dull voice.
Because the author has tried to cram so much in, I found there to be too much mention of various gods and other historical names far too often, which just added to the confusion.
All that combined I was thoroughly un-entertained and really didn’t want to carry on and finish the book.
There’s masses of potential here, but in its current state is very unfriendly to the listener and reader!!!!
Only buy if you’re up with you ancient mythology to a scholarly level, otherwise don’t bother.

Blew my head right off

Always knew inside my mind that we came from another planet....why do the powers at be lie to use about the true history of mankind....infact the powers that be lie to us about everything...we were created by an evil bunch and we a still governed by an evil bunch...there was no hope...but we are now awakening to the truth!!!
