Publisher's Summary

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.

Over the top action

Area 7 once again contains over the top action scenes, an unbelievable plot and the awesome Shane "Scarecrow" Schofield and his team of marines, including Buck "Book II" Riley the son of Buck "Book" Riley Senior who died in Ice Station. It is read by Sean Mangan who reads nearly all the Matthew Reilly books and who gives an excellent performance in all of them. Scarecrow and his team need to keep the President alive to prevent most of the Northern United States from been blown up. They also need to fight against a rogue military unit led by a supposedly dead racist military genius, fight against the countries most dangerous criminals including a cannibal serial killer and prevent a sino-virus been unloaded on the world, whilst also protecting the vaccine, a clone named Kevin. This is a typical Matthew Reilly book, fast-paced and just a great fun read and listen.

An 11 Hour Captain America Comic Book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

complete with "Biff" "Bang!" "Swoosh!" "Clang!" "Snap!" "Slap!" "Boom!" and even an - no I'm not kidding - "Holy Batman" line. I don't know who would enjoy this book, but they have my condolences for trying.

What could Matthew Reilly have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Write a believable, or at least SOMEWHAT believable book. This was really nothing more than comic strip super hero takes on notorious bad guy and a couple hundred of his henchmen almost single handily, kicks their butts, saves the world and gets the girl in the end. It's just silly from start to finish.

Which scene was your favorite?

The whole thing just runs together, one big race from start to finish

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The narrator did a very good job. If it wasn't for him, I would have turned the book off an hour into it.
