    A departure for Sitchin readers.

    The 'Lost Book of Enki' is a departure for Sitchin from his popular 'The Earth Chronicles' series, which offered an explanation for the origins of Earth, homo sapiens, and human civilization based on a unique interpretation of ancient stories from the Bible, Egypt, and Mesopotamia. This book can best be described as a hypothetical construct of an ancient text. The text is conjectured to be dictated by the character Enki (an alien visitor to Earth, considered a god and creator of humanity, as depicted in ancient Sumerian/Akkadian/Babylonian mythology) to one of his scribes. The text is presented in prose format with reverse syntax, as was the style in ancient Mesopotamia, to give it a feel of authenticity. Aside from a glossary and a few depictions of ancient relics, there are no explanatory notes, references, maps, or timelines as one would expect from a newly discovered cuneiform clay tablet. Sitchin apparently believes that such an ancient text was not only inspired by 'Lord Enki', but in fact may yet be discovered buried beneath the sands of ancient city ruins. The 'Lost Book of Enki' is essentially a retelling of the ancient Mesopotamian stories of the 'Epic of Creation', the 'Atra Hasis', and the 'Epic of Gilgamesh'. Sitchin adds nothing new scientifically to the groundwork laid in 'The Earth Chronicles' series. Consequently, Sitchin's latest work is only interesting as an academic exercise. Sitchin concludes the book by leaving the reader wondering as to the identity of 'Yahweh', and whether Enki, and the original Anunnaki, ever left Earth and returned to their home planet of Nibiru. The last books that excited my interest were, 'Unconventional Flying Objects' by Paul Hill, 'Alien Rapture' by Brad Steiger, and 'Alien Agenda' by Jim Marrs. I highly recommend all these books.

    if you believe there is a logical explanation

    if you get religion and astology and both put together to recieve answers then this book makes a ton of sense!
