    Great book and a really interesting Armageddon stoeWow, I actually knew most of the true parts of this book about ancient history but I love how it was all tied up and lined up like it was and wow what a interesting way to have Armageddon come about and where and what Hell is. Even the tortured souls! This book was not only interesting and fascinating it also moved at a fast pace. If you like end of the world books without the religion but with interesting alternative theories ( well alternative to western religion anyways) then I think you will love this book. I read the left behind series and to tell you the truth, I think this story is a lot more realistic and would be more likely to happen than what happened in that series. Great book will be reading book two. Oh and very well and professionally written too!.

    This book was amazing! I LOVED it! The characters were great and the story kept me wanting more. Once I got through the first few chapters I honestly couldn't put it down. This is definitely a unique premise and one I had never heard of before. It really made me think about how and why we believe the things we do. It was also packed with true and very interesting facts about the ancient Sumerian race. I had no idea they were so advanced. Can't wait for the next one in the series!!!!

    As an archaeologist, the name Zecharia Sitchin sets all of my alarm bells ringing and my “Nonsense Detector” into overdrive; so when the writer presented me with this novel for review through theindieview.com, and the premise sounded very much the sort of novel Sitchin might have written, you’d think I’d have turned it away. But I didn’t. After all, I love the Assassin’s Creed games and the back story there is of a similar premise – silly but fun and enjoyable so my hope was that this would be similarly silly but a good read.The story goes that our hero accidentally injects himself with a formula translated from 7000 year old texts. This formula gives him some ancient powers that mysterious powers of the world want to harness. What’s more, humanity is on the brink of extinction thanks to this technology and the alien race that invented it. He must use his powers to save the world and most importantly, his seriously sick wife.It was an interesting enough story even though it got sillier as it went on for me and the end became a bit preachy with its quasi-religious theme. If you’re into this particular sub-genre you’ll know what to expect. It just didn’t push any boundaries and progresses pretty much as expected. If you read this sort of thing on a regular basis I’m sure it’ll tick all your boxes.Some of the language grated on me; it could have done with a beta reader to iron out the typos and grammatically jarring sentences. It is over-written in places. Sometimes I just wanted something to happen when we were getting extensive and unnecessary narrative explaining what was happening or what had just happened. This type of book is supposed to be a page turner and I’m afraid that this wasn’t – I struggled in places.The Kindle formatting is poor too. There were none of the marker tabs so you can’t hop back and forth easily through the “go to” facility. That is one of the benefits of digital publishing, the ability to go back and forth to check previous details. The ebook then is user unfriendly.There is an extensive section at the end on the Sumerians. I decided not to read this in case my inner archaeologist felt the need to tear it apart. There’s no two ways about it, Sitchin has never and should never be taken seriously for his views but I understand how his fanciful ideas appeal to people.A semi-interesting read in the tradition of The Da Vinci Code and various others. Good for a switch your brain off romp but I’m afraid it won’t stick in my mind. There are better examples of conspiracy thrillers and alternate archaeology fiction out there.See more book reviews at my blog

    Origins will appeal to the reader that is intrigued by some of the things created by the ancients; like the Nazca lines and the pyramids. The reader that doesn’t dismiss the idea that there might have been some alien influence. But even if you’re a sceptic like me you will still enjoy this book; it is a good action adventure. This is a good story due to two factors; Mr Meyer knows how to write and keep his reader on the edge of his/her seat. Secondly he knows his stuff; you can tell that he has done a lot of research into ancient cultures such as the Sumerians and this lets him blend fiction with fact in a believable way. (there is some very interesting further reading at the end of the book about the Sumerians)The main character John, is a scientist who has an ordinary but happy life with the woman he loves. Events take over and we see John thrown into a world he had no knowledge off. As he grows into his new role we still recognise the man we had at the start. The love of his family drives him. He is a guy we like and feel comfortable with. This is quite an epic work, but one that keeps the reader engaged until the very end but to find out how things finish you’ll have to read the second part. In my case that won’t be a chore. Reading through some of the other reviews, I’m happy to report that the author has corrected the UK issues.

    Mythology and the ancients so often are viewed as apart from contemporary society. Authors have borrowed from them, reshaped them and repurposed them. The epic stories revisit these in their own format and style. Star wars for example was a contemporary restatement of the classical mythology of the Greeks and the Romans. The warrior’s journey is the essential story of most epic – ancient and contemporary. S.E. Meyer has opened the doors directly on both the epic and the mythology by placing them together and uses one to facilitate the other. Of the criticisms that are made of this work I can only direct those reviewers to Isaac Asimov’s Foundation Series. I’ve long been a fan of Asimov’s but it required an abscess and root canal for me to be able to wade through Asimov’s prose in that series. S.E. Meyer is fully engaged with the characters. They are important and their lives are relevant. Asimov’s characters in his epics were often throw away outlines that failed to register as an emotional event for the reader. S.E. Meyer is clearly taking on one of the most grueling of all literary task, the epic journey narrative. I applaud this.

    I couldn’t put it down!From the moment I began reading Origins I was sucked in. The pacing of the plot and the believability of the characters that are present within them create an atmosphere within the novel which leave you craving for more. The amount of detail about ancient religions as well as the interweaving of facts from modern day religions also suggests the author has done a tremendous amount of background work in getting all the data. Did I mention he involves aliens in all of this? I highly recommend this book to those interested in Ancient Astronaut Theory as well as to anyone who is simply looking for a new and original story with fast paced action. I’m looking forward to the next part!

    A DNF book - I really thought this book was going to be a great choice for me. But, it turns out that I couldn't continue past the second chapter.I felt that the prologue was enough to keep me reading, but then chapter one dragged on and on. I found that some information was repeated, way too often, and in a manner that made it seem like the author was introducing it for the first (not the third) time.All in all, the premise of this book seemed great. There's a need for someone to go back and proofread (many unnecessary capitalization, misplaced commas, quotations, etc all in just one chapter), as well as give editing advice. If this were reworked a bit, I might throw it back on my TBR.

    So I gave three stars to this book because I was feeling generous.The author needs to really invest time into proof reading or at the very least get a team of readers to do it for him. There were some many errors in this book that I started to read phonetically to try to ignore his inability to distinguish the difference between "your" and "you're".The story is really the strength of this book although it also drags on in some parts. It also gets a bit preachy but I was able to attribute that to the character development. Quite average job. I will not be reading further.

    A good, solid read. If you are interested in Ancient Astronaut Theory and the Book of Revelations, this is the book for you. Meyers interweaves them we'll and moves the plot along at a good clip. I downloaded the Kindle edition which is a travesty. Typos on almost I every page detracted and distracted from the book, There were also a number of grammatical errors which a good editor should have corrected.
