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.

Can't get into it

The subject matter is the kind of stuff that I'm into but this was really hard to keep listening to. Narrator was not great and the story just seemed difficult to keep interested in.

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.

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.

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

one of the best

probably one of the best books I've listened to in years on the Paleo archaeology / paleo alien and religious ideologies out there.

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.
