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

    Yes, if the friend was into action/adventure stories (Cussler, Rollins, Child, Preston etc.). There is nothing complicated here just a good adventure based on the myth (?) surrounding Area 51. And if you have not read any other Event Group thrillers you can still enjoy this story. Light but very entertaining listen.

    Story
    "Outstanding in the desert"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Fantastic narration by Poe, and a fascinating ( if not at times somewhat unbelievable ) story arc. It's the mother of all conspiracy theory lovers books/series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Event?

    The supporting story for the Roswell Incident is entertaining.


    What about Richard Poe’s performance did you like?

    Each character comes to life. An award worthy presentation.


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

    The Truth!


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this BOT, and urge Audible to upload the entire series IMMEDIATELY!

    "A Great Series."

    A wonderful syfi adventure series. Well written excellent character development and imaginative stories. Also, the narrator does a excellent job.

    The one problem is that we do not yet have access to the full series. Not only that, some of the books in the series have been skipped. The reading order should be:
    Event -- Available at audible.
    Legend -- Available at audible.
    Ancients -- Available at audible.
    Leviathan -- Missing
    Primeval -- Missing
    Legacy -- Missing
    Ripper -- Available at audible.

    If Audible had all of them I would probably add them to my library.

    Story
    "Area 51 shenanigans"

    Event by David Lynn Golemon creates a supersecret United States agency started by Abraham Lincoln to investigate archaeological sites. The proffered rationale was to "learn" stuff, but why the US would feel the need to run covert military ops for national security reasons in recovering buried treasure was never made clear. So with such an organization in place, Roswell, NM takes on a a different flavor. Furthermore, the alien artifacts from 1947 were stolen by someone believing that they could protect the nation better than the US government. 60 years later, some of the original players are still around ready for round 2 with the alien return.

    The sci-fi elements are limited to alien "stuff" mainly little green men and a rabid, killer, engineered alien lion like creature designed to eat humanity. At the same time, there is a freelance former French legioneer with a penchant for old things who simply gets in everyone's way. All the action occurs against a backdrop of military and espionage lite action.

    The narration is quite good with a solid range of voices and excellent pacing.

    Story
    "death springs from the earth and sky"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend it since its take on alien encounters is so different from most.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the author took popular ideas and wove them into the story.


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

    Poe was at first boring, but when he began to speak for the individual characters, I was excited with his style. I will be looking into other books just because of his ability and gifts as a narrator.


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

    Gus holding the green's hand, and then finding he was still alive. he thought he had lost a buddy, but was given a friend.


    Any additional comments?

    I have looked at this series several time and never took the hook, but the author has me now. I hope the additional books ill be as well put together as this one. I will probably listen to it again.

    "good story"

    liked the story, a little cliche at times but overall it was good. However the narration was a bit slow. I cranked the speed up x1.5 and it was better.

    Story
    "Great intro to a series. Highly recommend"

    I'll be honest; I considered not getting this book based on some of the reviews, but I've read everything else my other favorite authors have put out so I took a chance. I'm glad I did.

    I started with the first book in the series because I hate coming in to something halfway through, so I took a risk backing up to the beginning with this one because of some of the negative reviews from others - again, I'm glad I did.

    The story lines the Event Group plots surround are reminiscent of the Alex Hunter novels, the Joe Ledger series, and even some of the Chess Team novels, all of which I enjoyed immensely. Outlandish to be sure, but with enough military and tactical action to keep me intrigued and there's always something lurking behind the scenes with the sub-plots going on. If this is any indication of the quality of this author's writing, I'll be enjoying the entire series in short order.

    I wasn't familiar with the narrator previously either but I think he did a great job of bringing the story to life. All in all I've found a new author I think I'll enjoy and a great narrator to accompany him. It's worth the credit in my opinion!

    Story
    "Even better in audiobook form"
    Where does Event rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The background on the Event group,the introduction of some great characters and the way the author interwove the various antagonists and time periods in the story.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Poe – was your favorite?

    They were all great! I liked them all.


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

    When the friendly alien is saved by the prospector.


    Any additional comments?

    I have this book on my Kindle, but liked it so much I wondered how it would be on audio. It made the story really come alive.Richard Poe is one of my favorite narrators and does a great job with all voices. I really liked him on some of the Dan Brown books and was delighted to know he narrates the David L. Goleman books, too. I think this is the best of the Event group series, so far. It gives the listener a really good background on the mysterious Event group and their mission to investigate and preserve as many unexplained phenomena as they can locate. It also introduces the main characters that reappear again and again in the other books. There are many exciting and unexpected twists and turns and the variety of characters are great. It was refreshing to listen to an audiobook that is really SciFi and not involved with current geo-political problems. It is one of those kinds of stories that I had to listen to whenever I could, to see what happens next and I was almost sad when it ended. Great ending, by the way. I highly recommend this as a fun book that really keeps one interested from start to finish.

    "disappointing"

    I was looking for an intelligent science fiction story. After I started listening, I thought I could settle for a conspiracy adventure story. Unfortunately, the author is unable to describe police procedure in a believable manner, let alone anything related to physics or computing.
