Publisher's Summary

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

Over 1.2 Million copies of Area 51 sold in print-also author of best-selling Atlantis series

Area 51 was the most secret place in America. But it was only one piece in a puzzle that stretched from Egypt's Pyramids to the mysterious face on Mars.

Part of a plan begun 5,000 years ago by those who had been here before. And are coming back.

When scientist Lisa Duncan and Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte uncovered the stunning truth about Area 51--a "training area" on Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada--they opened up a Pandora's box kept hidden from the American public for 50 years.

What they uncovered explained decades of UFO sightings--and the most baffling mysteries of history from the Great Pyramid to Easter Island.

But these findings were only the beginning. Now a signal has come in from outer space: our first contact with extraterrestrials. The message said they were coming. It didn't say they had been here before...and left something behind. But what waited deep within the Rift Valley of Ethiopia and inside an ancient Chinese tomb would determine Earth's fate. The dawning of a new age. Or the destruction of us all...

    Story
    "Interstellar conflict!"
    Would you listen to Area 51: The Reply again? Why?

    Yes, I was impressed with the concept and development in Area 51 (the first book in the "Area 51" series.


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

    It's a worthy follow-up to Area 51, the first book in the series.

    Story
    "Alternate Universe!!!"

    Alternate Universe!!! is the only explanation, because some of the basic laws of physics are completely misrepresented,aerodynamics,hydrodyanmics,gravitics and factual history have the biggest number of mistakes I ever seen in science fiction.
    Everything else is much better than in the first book.

    "Dont do it"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one who truly enjoyed the first


    Any additional comments?

    In all honestly reading the first book was great. The second tries to ride its momentum and fails miserably. The first books story makes the narration bearable. The plot truly fell apart in the second. It hurt that I listened through the entire thing.

    Story
    "interesting"
    If you could sum up Area 51: The Reply in three words, what would they be?

    The mysteries of History.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Area 51: The Reply?

    The most meme able moment was when they were in the cave and talking to the Germans about what was going on and why they were there. The story of the alien war and how there is life in Mars was another part that stuck with me. Not knowing which aliens where the good one and which were the bad one is a bit confusing and hard to keep up with but overall the story and book are a continuation from book 1 and just as good.


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

    Jeffrey brings the emotion to the book.


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

    Yes it was and I actually did listen to it all in one day not necessarily one sitting because I had to stop a few times but I finished it in one day and going on to the third book curiosity has me. I'm interested to see what happens when the aliens wake up and the results of war..


    Any additional comments?

    None

    Guilty, you sort-a kind-a hope that something new in terms of ideas is going to come out but it doesn't, it didn't.

    "Blahhhh"
    What disappointed you about Area 51: The Reply?

    Rather boring and frankly a little over the top for me. I personally only continued to read because i wanted to know what the story was behind Area 51, otherwise, i wouldnt have finished it.

    Story
    "Can't stand to listen"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Possibly a different reader


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Jodi picoult


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeffrey Kafer?

    I don't know but someone who didn't pause after every sentence as if it were the news


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Area 51: The Reply?

    I couldnt get into it


    Any additional comments?

    I really wish I could have listened to this. I think this one should not have been an audible one for me.
