I read the first book "Saucer" and it was good and so is this one, not great but good. The book starts off about year later after the events in the Sahara Desert and it takes off from there. At times the story line is unbelievable and you kind of wonder why the author would insult the reader's intelligence but I guess it is a fun read. Just something to pass the time.

The story line is steady no thrills or chills with some action. The characters are more defined in this book than in the first book. It's an okay read. Nothing spectacular and fairly predictable.

The sequel to The Saucer, this book picks up where the first left off and proceeds to answer many of the unaswered questions we had from the first book while still leaving us wanting to know more. These two books are thrilling as well as informative and fascinating. As with all of Coonts' writings, they are well researched and extremely knowlegable but let me warn you - do not expect to come away with a trust or deep and abiding love for the politics and governmants of the world - including our own!

I did not expect a book from Coonts to be written at a teen level, so I was disappointed. The conversations are somewhat silly, but would work fine for a 12 year old. Sort of like the early Heinlein.

The story tends to drag on, and there are a few good surprises, but also some obvious things you expect.

For adult Sci-Fi, try something else... :) If you have kids, this would be a good series for them!

I gave it 3 stars because the publisher did not make it clear it was written at the "young adult" level.

Coonts writes great military techno-thrillers so why not write about saucer technology too. This is book 2 of a Trilogy and it's imperative that you read book 1, "Saucer", first to understand the derivation of the craft and the main characters. This is an easy read since it basically follows on continuous plot line and only a few personalities. After reading it, you will wish that it was non-fiction instead of Science Fiction.

Another novel with new believable characters, a plot second to none, and I could not put this book down. I had to finish reading it. Coonts three Saucer novels are not to be missed. The Saucer series continues to put Coonts as one of all time favorite authors.

This was a quick read but fun sequel to Saucer. Read that first. I liked Coonts' use of humor and his not trying to show how smart he is with more science detail to back up the plot. You have to suspend belief in science 101 anyway to enjoy the tale. On the other hand, science today is still hung up on Evolution, which does not hold up to modern scrutiny. And the story assumes millions of years. So as one who sees evolution as a bankrupt theory and a defacto false religion of the atheistic, who cares? Just enjoy the story. It's not Star Wars, but entertaining enough. LOU

Coonts highly popular "Saucer" Sequel. The hero/s Charlie and Rip are back with Mr Egg. Great stuff basically. Highly predictable plot but Mr Coonts has our attention once more as we imagine his narrative as addressed to us in person around a campfire.

This is engaging and readable Si-Fi.

I am now 62 years old, I still hugely enjoy the magic of story-telling - done well. And Mr Coonts measures up well against the masters of his craft.

Enjoy.
I've always enjoyed Stephen Coonts starting with "the Flight of the Intruder." The "Saucer" series combines his unique storytelling capabilities with a marvelous, fantasy saga of a saucer discovered Sahara Desert. Amazingly self-sustaining, the saucer and the folks who found it become engaged in the defeat of a fanatic who plans to rule the Earth. Most entertaining, and isn't that what a book is meant to do?
