Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Bob Mayer, writing as Robert Doherty....

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....

Former Green Beret Mike Turcotte, assigned to Nightscape, security for Area 51, begins to realize things aren’t as they seem. Deep inside the Great Pyramid in Giza, an archeologist makes a startling discovery in the lowest chamber. On Easter Island, what are the giant statues guarding? What was Thule and why were the Nazis so intent on finding it during World War II? What are the strange stones off the coast of Bimini? All these clues and more add up to a frightening countdown that could bring about the end of our planet. Turcotte and Presidential Science Adviser Lisa Duncan must race against time to save the world from the secret hidden at Area 51.

Over 1.5 Million copies of Area 51 sold—also author of the best-selling Atlantis series.

    "I was surprised"

    At first, I didn't think this was going to be my "cup of tea," but as the story advanced, I found myself more and more interested. If you'd asked me after my first 3 or 4 hours of listening, I would have told you I don't intend to download the second book. Now I'm adding it to my wishlist.

    "all your favorite theories in one story"

    Nazis, Aliens, ancient Egypt and area 51, oh my! had to listen on premise alone. predictable but well put together story. fast pace and good for a weekend vacation drive. not a waste of time, but a OK way to waste some time. if it were a movie I'd give it 7/10

    Story
    "interesting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would, the book was interesting, it made me wonder if stuff like this was really going on.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that the book incorporated stories that we hear about today. We have all heard about Atlantis and we know there is an Area 51. So it just put different thoughts in my head..


    What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emotion


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    None

    Story
    "Expected more from the description of the book."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am not sure who would have enjoyed this, just not myself .


    Would you ever listen to anything by Bob Mayer and Robert Doherty again?

    Possibly.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think the narrator was very good.


    What character would you cut from Area 51?

    Maybe the reporter...


    Any additional comments?

    No

    Story
    "And so it begins!!!!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Area 51 to be better than the print version?

    I had read this book first as I could not get the audio on tape or cd as it was published many years ago. For me audio is always better.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Area 51?

    The build up giving you info about area 51, very visual.


    What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is an excellent narrater, he has a very descriptive way of telling the story.
    It flows very well. Shame he did not do the whole series i.e. The Grail


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think its when the military with all their tech come across the phew Fighters


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this series of 10 books. the story finishes at "the Truth" but the rest really add to the area 51 universe. "The Grail" apart from the worst narration I have ever heard is an excellent story so you have to suffer to get the full story.

    "Great Story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Area 51 the most enjoyable?

    Easily written, but not too simple. I like that it has all the criteria that I love in a book: science, fiction, history, aliens, military action.... This is a great story and I look forward to reading the rest of the series!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely! I could barely put it down.

    Story
    "Pleasantly Surprising!"

    I have been interested in Area 51 and the UFO thing ever since I saw one myself…many years ago. When I saw this book, I purchased it with some trepidation, expecting a way out SciFi. But as the story went along, I found myself more and more intrigued until the book completed! Amazingly, I had listened to the entire book and had NOT become bored or disappointed with it. Warning…if you have any interest in this story line, it will lead to the other books in the series. I'm on book 4 now. Still intrigued!

    Any additional comments?

    This is an 8 book series and the incredible thought process that went into this is amazing! Love the blending of history, SyFy, and the military. Prefect. Makes you think...
