Descripción del producto
"In Mr. Sitchin's [work], evolution and creationism collide. He has spent his life arguing that people evolved with a little genetic intervention from ancient astronauts who came to Earth . . . He has studied ancient Hebrew, Akkadian and Sumerian, the language of the ancient Mesopotamians, who brought you geometry, astronomy, the chariot, and the lunar calendar. And in the etchings of Sumerian pre-cuneiform script--the oldest example of writing--are stories of creation and the cosmos that Mr. Sitchin takes literally." * New York Times *
Reseña del editor
Written in secret so as not to incite criticism about his controversial discoveries, this novel from the late Zecharia Sitchin brings to life the key themes of his bestseller The 12th Planet. The story begins in London as Astra arrives at the British Museum's opening for their new Gilgamesh exhibit. There she meets a handsome stranger who knows secrets about her that no stranger should know, including the source of the unusual scar on her hand. Taking her to his apartment, he reveals that she is descended from the goddess Ishtar and that he is the modern-day avatar of Gilgamesh seeking to claim the eternal life Ishtar denied him so long ago. Reenacting their sacred sex ritual from eons ago, they find themselves transported to ancient Sumer as Gilgamesh and Ishtar, where he is at last able to continue his quest for immortality. But as Gilgamesh fulfills his sacred duties with Ishtar, something goes awry and the Oracle of Anu will not renew its blessing upon his kingship. Following the direction of his mother, the Anunnaki goddess Ninsun--the source of his partial divinity--Gilgamesh flees the city for the Anunnaki forbidden zone in search of a way to the planet Nibiru and eternal life. Travel alongside Gilgamesh and his immortal companion Enkidu as they escape the fate pronounced by the oracle, discover a Tablet of Destiny meant for Ishtar, fight off Marduk's raiders, and foil the plot of the high priest, Gilgamesh's half-brother who is seeking Gilgamesh's crown for himself. Retelling the Epic of Gilgamesh in the context of his discoveries about the Anunnaki, Zecharia Sitchin weaves a tale of ancient ceremony, accidental betrayal, gods among men, interplanetary travel, and a quest for immortality spanning millennia.Ver Descripción del producto

I expect Sitchin books to give you references to historical documents and to explain where, when and by whom these discoveries were made. Documentation is important when challenging the accepted truths, and this book contains none of that. A real Sitchin book can drag along at times because of these references, but they are absolutely necessary for people seeking kernels of truth to our past history.
We as a society have become aware that we have been misled and lied to by the powerful, and Sitchin's books have helped to focus, and in some cases, expose some of those lies. I'm concerned that this book will only embolden and help those people who are critical of Sitchin and his life's work. Sitchin's books have opened our minds and led us down a path of discovery. He teaches us that history has been manipulated through time by those who were in power during the writing of it. To me that is what Sitchin's legacy is and should be. This book is not a mind opener or a challenge to accepted beliefs, but more of a whimsical telling of one of the most ancient tales of all written history. All in all, I found some pleasure in reading the book because it tried to show the life style of an ancient Sumerian. I just wish Zecharia Sitchin's name wasn't splashed across the top.
