Area 7 product reviews

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. Rumour has it, he's a good man in a storm.

Judging by what the President has just walked into, he'd better be...

Well, well, well, Mr Reilly, someone's been watching too many James Bond movies. My main fault with the book is that, though some small details are changed, one part of the book is a dead ringer for the opening scene of a James Bond movie (I wont say which, because that'll spoil the book). Tut tut tut. Never thought I'd say it, but this didn't impress me very much.
But the rest of the book, dont get me started. Admittedly the first M.R. book I read, this book got me hooked, so I can't really complain. I loved this book from the beginning. The best thing, (which was actually one of Matthew's goals when writing the book) was that the reader didn't need to have read the first in the series (Ice Station), they could pick it up and just start reading. Though, as with most things, reading the prequel did help. Unlike most sequels, which ruin the name of their predecessor, this book, if it is possible, improved the series.
A great book, well worth the $25.00 cost, though it is available at most second hand bookshops for about $9.00 for a copy in decent condition. Realism, as with all his books, a wee bit over the top.
Will definitely read it again, and definitely lost track of time (Read it on the way to Wellington, and almost missed my stop, very engrossing.)
