Area 7 Matthew Reilly Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
It is America's most secret base, hidden deep in the Utah desert, an Air Force installation known only as Area 7.
And today, it has a visitor - the President of the United States.
He has come to inspect Area 7, to examine its secrets for himself. But he's going to get more than he bargained for on this trip. Because hostile forces are waiting inside.
Among the President's helicopter crew, however, is a young Marine. He is quiet, enigmatic, and he hides his eyes behind a pair of silver sunglasses. His name is Schofield. Call-sign: Scarecrow. Rumor has it, he's a good man in a storm. Judging by what the President has just walked into, he'd better be...
Matthew Reilly dazzled the world with his electrifying thrillers Ice Station and Temple. And now, Shane "Scarecrow" Schofield returns with his most harrowing and explosive adventure yet.

User reviews about this book
This book was amazing, enough said, but there were just some moments where the most ridiculous thing would appear, or save scarecrow. For example. "A Komodo dragon popped up and saved schofield!" That just made me put the book down and sit back in my seat, thinking "who writes this kind of stuff?" But overall this is a story I could visualize, and remember for a long time. Just like all the other books.
A Bit Familiar
I loved without question his first book, Ice Station. This one was very good, but it didn't have quite the same 'draw you in' sort of effect. It also felt a bit like deja vu in terms of the storyline, the characters' last minute heroics, etc. Still, definitely a good read and worth the purchase. I'm sure I'll read another of his books in the future.
Please take this book back.
The fault is my own. I could only manage a few chapters before abandoning those within to whatever fate awaits them in Area 7. This book shouts at you. Imagine a book written by Michael Bay. Now turn the volume up to eleven. It is obviously difficult to craft good fiction that satisfies a broad readership, clearly over stimulated by the clamoring host of action writers today. Mr Reilly delivers his in a style that I can only liken to watching an action movie while your brother-in-law screams a running narrative directly at the side of your face.
Those comparing him to early Clancy require medication.
Shame on Apple
The book is a great read but this version I chock full of spelling errors, and the formatting is terrible. I counted easily a hundred errors in the first 300 pages. I wonder what Apple will do since I bought a book that obviously wasn't checked before being released on the store. It should be pulled immediately and actually inspected before being offered for sale again. This is ridiculous.
