Una missione del capitano Schofield, nome in codice Scarecrow
Il capitano dei marines Shane «Scarecrow» Schofield è assegnato alla scorta del neoeletto presidente degli Stati Uniti durante la sua visita all'Area 7, una base militare segreta nel deserto dello Utah: una missione di routine. Se non fosse che Charles Russell, un ex generale dell'Aeronautica accusato di alto tradimento, ha fatto installare nel cuore del presidente un microchip collegato a un satellite: l'arresto del cuore causerebbe l'interruzione della trasmissione e attiverebbe le testate nucleari collocate negli aeroporti più importanti degli Stati Uniti. E l'Area 7 è proprio lo scenario migliore per attentare alla vita del presidente e consumare così una vendetta covata da anni. Nella base, infatti, c'è un laboratorio batteriologico in cui si sperimentano virus micidiali. L'Area 7 sta per trasformarsi in una trappola mortale e Scarecrow e i suoi uomini stanno per precipitare in un vero e proprio incubo: cosa li aspetta infatti là dentro?

Warning: Do not read this book if you cannot suspend your disbelief about the seemingly improbable events that occur during action sequences. If you can’t do this, you will not enjoy this book. If you can, then hang on for the wild ride. No one, and I do mean no one, writes action scenes like Matthe Leggi tutto
When I’m reading an action novel, I want to be able to turn a page as quickly as a camera angle changes in an action movie. Matthew Reilly has an amazing ability to be able to create this and Area 7 is no exception. While this is essentially a ‘sequel’ to Ice Station, it can easily stand alone on its Leggi tutto
Like many of these Shane Schofield books they take a bit of suspended disbelief and a lot of accepted probable impossibility. The one thing though you can always depend on with this series is non-stop action and an escape from reality. They are just good, fun stories. Matthew Reilly is a genius when Leggi tutto
Hard to review because 1) it was a ton of fun to read, but 2) ultimately disappointing at just HOW freekin unbelievable the story was. I mean if this were taking place in the year 2200 and every character had bionic abilities or something, but there is NO way the action sequences are plausible. If n Leggi tutto
An experiment to see what all the hype is about. If you like non-stop action movies, video games etc with plenty of Wam! 🥊, 🚀Boom! ⁉️Kapow! descriptions and the body count increasing on every other page, along with one-dimensional characters and a nonsensical storyline then enjoy!
4 stars Oh wow what an amazing adventure I had. Weeeeeeeeeeeee. I loved previous book. It was uber thrilling. Area 7 isn't lacking too except that I enjoyed it less, though. Perhaps it might have got something to do with less gruesome? Or maybe it's my brain's finally able to cope with some grueso
This is the second book I've read by Matthew Reilly and just like Ice Station (the first book in the Scarecrow series) it's an action packed read from start to finish! The setting for this story is the mysterious Area 7 a secret U.S. military installation hidden underground in Utah. U.S. Marine Shan Leggi tutto
This book SHOULD be read only if you are waiting in the airport to catch a long-delayed flight, or while pursuing some other (similar) pursuit. This book is undoubtedly rather difficult to part-with while in the middle of reading, but it stretches the border of incredulity to such an extreme point t Leggi tutto
Blam! Blam! Scarecrow's back! While the start of this book reads as though you're in for a predictable action-thriller, it is anything but. Scarecrow, Mother, Fox, and 'Book the Second' are locked in a super secret military facility, alongside the president, and are up against a team of genetically e Leggi tutto
