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...

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.

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.

Time to move on from 51

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.

Disappointing

This was disappointing. It does not relate at all to the nightstalkers book. The writing is weak with almost no editing and lots of redundancy within sentances such as “the difficulty of executing the difficult maneuver”. Get a thesaurus. The author regularly switches names within paragraphs for the same person, and uses a lot of jargon that doesnt support the story but breaks the story. The narrator would be fine if he slowed down. This is the first of many audiobooks that i had to slow down. The plot is disjointed and the listener doesnt get enough info to be working it out. Like a mystery where the killer is a character revealed in the very last chapter. Finally, the characters are fairly two dimensional and not realistic. Such as the reporter who is briefing the president and national security group.

Great Sci-fi!

Another great addition to a captivating story. Makes you wonder how much of this could actually be true.
