4.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first in the series!
Area 51: The Reply is even better than the original Area 51 novel. I really can't delve too much into any of the key plot elements because that would spoil crucial events, but suffice it to say that there are enought plot twists and explosive events that keep the pages turning. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that there were a few technical errors in the book...

1.0 out of 5 stars Even more errors than the first one.
While the story was interesting enough, I won't be buying any more in the series. Reason? Even more typos and wildly inappropriate use of the dreaded hyphen than the first book. There are now errors on every single page!!! This is without a doubt the worst book in terms of errors that I have read on kindle yet. Amazon should be ashamed for allowing quality this poor to be...

Area 51: The Reply is even better than the original Area 51 novel. I really can't delve too much into any of the key plot elements because that would spoil crucial events, but suffice it to say that there are enought plot twists and explosive events that keep the pages turning. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that there were a few technical errors in the book (that was the only thing keeping me from giving the book 5 stars), most of them relating to military aircraft, but still those errors didn't take much from the storyline. A thourougly enjoyable read, just make sure you read "Area 51" first! Can't wait until "Area 51: The Mission" comes out...

5.0 out of 5 stars Even beats the first Area 51 novel!, 22 Mar 1998
By A Customer
Robert Doherty: title - Area 51: THE REPLY

The characters from Area 51 are back! In the first novel The Guardian sent a message into space. Humans could do nothing but ponder who made The Guardian and where were they now. In the second novel, The Guardian gets a reply. All military branches of the world look toward the starts for the mother of The Guardian. But the aliens were not on a ship heading toward Earth. They had been much closer for a long time. They had been sleeping...deep within Mars.
The Guardian is not alone. There is another Guardian in Mars and it was reviving its creators. And there are other things to worry about.
A tomb in China turns out NOT to be a tomb, but an alien chamber...A giant ruby turns out to be a doomsday device to destroy Earth...The aliens say the are coming in peace, but proof shows they are not.
FIRST CONTACT has finally come to us...and we are not ready!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, 30 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Reply (Area 51 series) (Kindle Edition)
Read the others before you read this one or you enter the plot out of sync. Very exciting, it could be true.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hyphen problem fixed, 18 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to admit I was a bit hesitant about buying the Kindle version of this book due to the comments left by other reviewers regarding the over use of hyphens which I think is a throwback from the paper version of the book. However it looks like the author or Amazon has taken notice, I'm now half way through the book and not a hyphen in sight. The story itself pretty much follows on from where book one left off, fast moving, griping and a real page turner. I will certainly be purchasing the remainder of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first, but still a nice read, 10 July 1998
By A Customer
After flying through "Area 51", I was somewhat disappointed that the characters in "Area 51: The Reply" weren't as well developed. I thought the character of Kelly Reynolds was especially flat after such a great introduction in the previous book. I would still recommend this book, it is goot, but I think the author put more thought into the development of the characters in the first book.
Now, to the strengths of "Area 51: The Reply". The action sequences of "Area 51: The Reply" were very well done. Definitely Mr. Doherty's forte. I also enjoyed the development of the STAAR conspiracy, and look forward to more of that in the next book.
I hope that for the next book, "Area 51: The Mission", we get all the action of "The Reply" combined with the well thought out and detailed characterizations from the original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel!, 23 Aug 1998
By A Customer
I read this book before I read the first Area 51 book. It was confusing, but extremely helpful after I read the first book. The book starts off exactly where the first one left off. With the discovery of the Airlia held up on Mars, as well as a strange device in Ethiopia's Rift Valley, six craft head for Earth to land in Central Park. But with a discovery of another gaurdian computer in China, it seems the Airlia aren't as nice as they were imagined in the first 'Area 51' book. Characters differed very much from the first book. Mike Turcotte seems more of an easy going guy. Lisa Duncan becomes more of a character, and a romance seems to be blooming between her and Turcotte. A good deal of suspense and action keeps this book going. Eagerly awaiting for the release of "The Mission"

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read for a rainy day., 19 Feb 1998
By A Customer
Robert Doherty has a great knack for interconnecting enough real events with his fiction to make you stay allert. A little bit like Tom Clancy but over a wider spectrum. There is authentic sounding descriptions of military hardware and procedures, and enough far out stuff to make even the most ardent UFOlogist feel at home. The combination somehow grounds what would otherwise be just conspiracy fluff with enough reality to make for a good yarn. (Exactly how did the Men In Black connect to both the Great Wall and secret bases in Antartica again? Area 51: The Reply has at least one possibility covered.) Highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very intriguing follow-up!, 5 Aug 1999
By A Customer
AREA 51: THE REPLY picks up from where AREA 51 left off, and it turns out there are more mysteries to uncover! A signal is picked up from Mars. Two major archaeological finds are discovered in China and Africa, while scientist Lisa Duncan is abducted by the alien computer on Easter Island and links herself telepathically with it. I won't say anymore, just buy this book, it is amazing. I read it in two sittings, and was left thirsting for more. What is the tie-up with the aliens' message from Mars and the discoveries . . .? BUY THIS BOOK NOW!
