Amazon 5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and well-written, May 19, 2012 This review is from: Inanna/Ishtar (Paperback Edition) As a devoted believer in the late Zecharia Sitchin, I loved this book. Described as Bio/Fiction, it expands on many of Mr. Sitchin's insights providing exciting and probable scenarios. I was jarred in an early chapter that described the birth of the twins, Inanna and Utu, as first of the Nephilim to be born on Earth. According to Mr. Sitchin, the twins' father Nannar was the first Nephilim born on Earth resulting from Enlil's rape of the nurse, Sud. Immediately I thought: "Oh, here is another quack who can't get his facts straight." I was discouraged, but with a two-hour wait for my flight, I continued reading Inanna. I'm so happy I did! The early bit of "literary license" that I feel was inserted to provide a more exciting opening, was my only negative response and I urge any Sitchin follower to accept it and enjoy some of the most fascinating Biblical and historical revelations you can imagine. Now, you don't have to imagine! I haven't read "Fifty Shades of Grey", but I doubt it can approach the bar established by the Goddess of Love. My only complaint is reading "END" on the last page.

Amazon 5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Must Read!!! Love this Author!!, May 22, 2012. This review is from: Inanna/Ishtar (Kindle Edition).  First, I want to thank the author, John Whitaker, for once again hitting a "home run" with his latest masterpiece. And also for finally putting the bits and pieces of our history together into a story that absorbs, shocks, and astounds us, as well as makes sense and is easy to follow. I so did not want this book to end!! The characters displayed in this book come alive on the pages before your eyes. Whitaker lets us see ourselves in the gods and godesses as disclosed in the world's oldest records. The eternal conflicts, the unstable earth we live in, our sensuality, our lusts and loves, our ambition could all stem from our ancient past. It's clearly the best book on the subject I have ever read. I highly recommend it!!!!!!  Doc0969 – (Georgia)

Amazon 5.0 out of 5 stars excellent!, May 22, 2012.  This review is from: Inanna/Ishtar (Paperback Edition)As a teacher who reminds my studnets to always be open to new reading, I found this book fascinating. While I wasn't sure if I would like it at first, I'm so glad that I finally focused in on it and took the time to read it! I loved the images created in vivid details throughout the story. The history it brought to life was very informative and creative, as well. I don't know much about the specific gods/godesses, so I was enthralled with what I was reading. My only wish was that there was less provacativeness to it, so that I could bring it into my classroom for my students to read, too.  lilly – (Florida)

Amazon 5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the book!, May 24, 2012. This review is from: Inanna/Ishtar (Paperback Edition)As I read Inanna/Ishtar, I couldn't help but visualize the story as a full-scale movie. Inanna is a true "action" hero(ine) and deserves her place in the pantheon of "gods." I have read every book by Zecharia Sitchin and I see no problem with Whitaker's fictional account of Inanna's birth. It is a dramatic opening to the life of a goddess who personifies her title as "Goddess of Love and War." The book opens our minds to the possible events of our distant beginnings which have been lurking in our subconscious as imaginative "what ifs." The combination of facts derived from ancient texts together with the sensibilities of present day understanding of the past makes for interesting and exciting reading.  M. B. Sheffield (New Jersey)

Amazon 5.0 out of 5 stars Inanna/Ishtar (the book), May 24, 2012.  This review is from: Inanna/Ishtar (Kindle Edition)Loved John Whitakers new book, Inanna/Ishtar! As another (long ago) fan of Sitchin, it was such a pleasure to see many of his concepts presented in a much more interesting, believable, exciting, and a joy to read, manner. Thank you Mr. Whitaker.  P. Lewis (Melbourne FL)

Inanna Ishtar

What’s It About?

Six-thousand-year-old clay tablets left behind by the Sumerians tell us in cuneiform script that the planets Uranus and Neptune are “greenish-blue.” How did they know? Our science could not confirm that until the Voyager II fly-by in the late 1980s. The troublesome question of the last century has to be: “Who told the Sumerians that Uranus and Neptune exist, and about their colors?

“Who told them?”

It is a rare person who will immediately grasp the significance of that question.

The same clay tablets also tell us that Inanna, a fierce and beautiful goddess from antiquity, is not a fictional character. As Aphrodite to the Greeks, Venus to the Romans, through many adventures and love affairs erroneously categorized as myth, she gained for herself a place in the Nefilim Pantheon of Twelve.

Inanna/Ishtar is a chronicle of fact-based incidents interspersed with highly probable fictional stepping stones. For the deities of antiquity, the few prohibitions regarding sex were related to royal rights of succession allowing Inanna, a Divine Child, daughter of two of the ruling pantheon, a free romp among the gods and mortals of her time.

This tale swims upstream against the flow of current teachings and knowledge. It contains theory and context objectionable to many. One day, continually emerging discoveries will require (another) rewrite of the Old Testament, giving the Nefilim and Anunnaki the place in our ancient history they deserve for it is by the Creator of all, through them, that we exist in our present form, far ahead of our time. They provided the “missing link” that has baffled anthropologists for centuries. 

Nibiru, their home planet (Planet "X" to contemporary astronomers), orbits our sun from deep space once every thirty-six-hundred of our years. It is a monarchy ruled by a pantheon of twelve including a King, his two sons, a daughter, and eight others of royal blood. To accept their reality, understand how they came to be; a subject that is not being taught in our culture. I hope the following will help make it clear.

The title, “Goddess of Love and War,” is bestowed on Inanna by history, not the author. It would not be fitting to write, “They kissed and went to bed to make love.” Therefore, the several descriptions of sexual activity herein are not gratuitous, but they are graphic.
