Saucer: Savage Planet: Saucer, Book 3

A year after young engineering student Rip Cantrell discovered the first flying saucer buried deep in the sands of the Sahara, another saucer is brought up from the bottom of the Atlantic. The recovery is funded by a pharmaceutical executive who believes that the saucer holds the key to an anti-aging drug formula that space travelers would need to voyage between galaxies. But one of his technicians, Adam Solo, an alien marooned on Earth for a thousand years, steals the saucer, hoping to summon a starship to rescue him.

Publisher's Summary

Aliens are coming!

A year after young engineering student Rip Cantrell discovered the first flying saucer buried deep in the sands of the Sahara, another saucer is brought up from the bottom of the Atlantic. The recovery is funded by a pharmaceutical executive who believes that the saucer holds the key to an anti-aging drug formula that space travelers would need to voyage between galaxies. But one of his technicians, Adam Solo, an alien marooned on Earth for a thousand years, steals the saucer, hoping to summon a starship to rescue him. Unfortunately, the stolen saucer has damaged communications gear.

Solo goes to Rip Cantrell and his partner, ex-Air Force test pilot Charlotte “Charley” Pine, and Rip's uncle Egg, for help in summoning a starship. Meanwhile, as a terrified world fearful of space invaders approaches meltdown, big pharma moguls and their thugs are hot on the trail of the foursome.

In a world turned upside down, it may be the arriving aliens who offer limitless possibilities. Rip and Charley face an incredible decision: Do they dare leave the safety of earth to travel into the great wilderness of the universe? Full of UFO’s, futuristic technology, edge-of-your-seat flying scenes and unforgettable characters, human and otherwise, Stephen Coonts' Savage Planet is classic storytelling at its best…and pure, unadulterated fun.

    "Okay finale for the series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Any book done by narrator Dick Hill has to be decent and this one was better because of the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I had read the other books written years back and was surprised to see this new one on Audible. It is worth the listen though it maybe of help to have followed the characters in the earlier books.

    "Pretty Good Story ruined by terrible reading"
    Would you try another book from Stephen Coonts and/or Dick Hill?

    I have several Stephen Coonts books and look forward to more - but with a different reader


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    The performance got in the way of the story and the readers terrible attempt at voicing elderly characters made me wince.

    "First 2 were great"

    Well I did like the story. liked charters. This saying words & letters left is crazy.


    The narrator was a very good speaker. He was not to good as changing the voices, but got in to it.
    I really love these kind of books. Really liked the Author, in all was good.

    Story
    "Exciting"

    This action-scifi book is a comment on society and heavily laden with tongue-in-cheek. Coonts uses the story to explore consequences of new advanced technology in a society. He does ask the question what would happen to the economy if people could live for a 1000 years? However, the Petty Officer adviser (man on the street) to the POTUS is a bit over the top. Also, I don't believe that he deals with first contact very well--a White House reception? Give me a break. Maybe I missed the humor in that one.:-)

    "Stephen Coonts is a natural storyteller"

    Stephen Koontz is a natural storyteller, he spins a yarn like he's dreaming a dream. Rip and Charlie are great partners in this dynamic adventure and Uncle Egg makes sure to bring common sense to an uncommon world. If you read the previous two books you will enjoy this one. If not you've got some catch-up to do. Get on with it "saucer" is your starting place.

    Story
    "I miss performer Eric Conger."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The performer and/or producer of this third installment has diverged so far from the tone of the second volume that the characters are unrecognizable.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Mr. Hill reads this installment as if we've been dropped into the mob culture of the roaring twenties. Our heroine, an accomplished pilot and confident woman, has been transformed into a sheepish maul. Our hero, a punk. Everyone else a mobster or thug.
