    "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.

    "Fun, edge of your seat."

    I has as much fun listening to this, as I did reading it. Loved it and loved the voice for Gus and Matchstick - exactly how I heard them in my head when reading the book.

    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.
