5.0 out of 5 stars REMINDED ME OF STARGATE IN PLACES-- BUT BETTER
I had to think of the movie Stargate after reading this book. I checked the copyright date and realized Doherty had written this well before the movie which was interesting. I thought the ending was a great twist. Why does the biggest rock in the world sit in the middle of the Australian outback anyway? Very enjoyable and interesting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining - too many errors
This book, as well as the area 51 books, is a very entertaining read. Mr. Doherty (Mayer) spins a good tail. There are a few mistakes in the book, however, that are distracting (I won't ruin it for you, they are worth looking for.) I recommend this book if you like a good story and don't get put off by mistakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting-- lots of action with some deeper issues, 1 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rock (Mass Market Paperback)
Had a heck of a good time reading this book. Got it after reading this author's Area 51 books. In some ways enjoyed this even more. If you want action woven in with science fiction, check this one out.

5.0 out of 5 stars BETTER THAN AREA 51, 30 Aug 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rock (Mass Market Paperback)
I liked AREA 51 but this was even better. I thought the story was going one way, then all of sudden it changed. Awesome ending. Wonder if there will be a sequel to this book?

1.0 out of 5 stars Seems like anything can get published these days., 28 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rock (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm an avid science fiction reader and English teacher. This book is poorly written, the plot jumps around and is unresolved at the end, and the characters are poorly developed. I wonder who actually wrote all these reviews on the book? My husband, a History Professor, threw it in the trash can at about page 100. I really think this book is a waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars AREA 51, THE OMEGA MISSILE, what else?, 17 Aug 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rock (Mass Market Paperback)
I've checked this author's web site out and he's written these books and many more. Glad I've found them. Plus he's got a book coming out on Atlantis next year. Can't wait. This book reminded me a lot of Stargate but with a better ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is entertaining and it makes you think., 12 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rock (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the best story I've ever read. It's good because the story is entertaining. I read this book in 4 1/2 hours. I couldn't put it down. I love his Are 51 books, but I definatly think that this story was superior. I'd love a sequal, but the ending didn't seem to lead to another. I guess I can just hope! Jesse
