I have always been curious about the theory of the Annunaki and this book does not disappoint though it is greatly detailed and some readers may find the material quite dry and hard to work through. The main premise is that a group of alien beings called the Annunaki came to Earth looking for gold to preserve their planet, and basically "hot wired" the human race by creating hybrid workers with Annunaki genes mixed with whatever hominid existed at the time. According to Zecharia Sitchin, the Annunaki were the ancient Gods of ancient Sumer and Babylon and intermarried with the resulting hybrid workers to create the human race of today. It is very obvious that Sitchin knows the material he is discussing; mainly Sumerian cuneiform and Mesopotamian iconography and his interpretation and hypothesis is interesting to say the least. Am I convinced? No, but I have to admit that it would be fascinating to find out DNA results of the bodies found in the Royal Tombs of Ur. I received a copy of this book from the publisher (thank you so much for your patience and allowing me to read such a fascinating book) via Netgalley for free in exchange for an honest review.
