    Deep in the Nevada desert is the most secure compound in the United States: Area 51. The most chilling experiment of all time is about to begin there. The president doesn't know about it. Just a few scientists and military personnel working for Majestic-12 do, and they are about to make a very big mistake.

    William says: "10 hours of setup for a sequel"
    "A really good story! Thoroughly enjoyed!"

    What did you love best about Area 51?

    The subject matter was interesting - bordering between fact and fiction, stimulating the imagination!


    What other book might you compare Area 51 to and why?

    Daniel Suarez's books. Thriller tech story theme


    Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The ending was kind of abrubt, or at least it appeared that way. The story was going at a particular pace throughout, then near the end, it seemed like things just moved so much faster, but perhaps that was just the adrenaline of the moment!

    Linda McKinney is a myrmecologist, a scientist who studies the social structure of ants. Her academic career has left her entirely unprepared for the day her sophisticated research is conscripted by unknown forces to help run an unmanned - and thanks to her research, automated - drone army. Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into the faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets.

    Madeleine says: "What's that droning sound?"
    "A scarily possible story! Accurate and thrilling!"

    AccurateScaryThrilling


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything in the story was something that could happen right now, today, which adds to the thrill factor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was the incident in Colorado (I don't want to elaborate and spoil it for folks who haven't read it yet!).


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    We're at war - and no one knows who started it


    Any additional comments?

    Daniel Suarez gives a glimpse of what is possible with autonomous drones and bad intentions. The scary part is, everything in the book is technically possible! A great read (listen!).
