I was very sceptical when looking at the author Tom Delonge, given the medias portrayal of his interests in ufology and conspiracy. If you are anything like me and have had this thought, please do yourself a favour a dive headfirst into this book.
You will NOT be disappointed.
What an outstanding adventure filled with more than enough alien / ufo / black-ops military action to settle anyone's appetite.
I tip my hat to A. J. Hartley for bringing together all of Tom Delonge's knowledge and beautifully threading together a multitude of stories into a suspense-filled ending.
A well driven, grippingly intense FUN story for young and old!

The biggest downside I had, was even though this book is just shy of 18hrs long, you cannot put it down.. so those 18hrs go quick. But like those great movies of old, Tom Delonge thought ahead and has made a sequel!

Enjoy!

Simply, WOW!

Of course if you are reading this book, you no doubt already have some information on Bob Lazar and his story.
This is a fantastic reenforcement of the facts previously told, from a much more intimate perspective.

If you don't know a single thing about this story, prepare to have your scepticism mode activated while simultaneously in a state of utter shock and disbelief.

Bob, if your story is true. Thank you.

In Dan Browns classic overly detailed take, this time on the very conspiracy filled history of the capital of the United States.

A little disappointing to realize that I guessed the ending around halfway through the book, however, this does not take away from any of the exhilarating action-adventure that is The Lost Symbol.

A must-read if you're a fan of Dan Brown!!

Absolutely nothing against Annie Jacobsen and her amazing investigatory writings, however, this was a difficult one to follow.

The abundance of people involved in this horrible point in history makes for an incredibly hard book to follow. If you're fine with following multiple people (oh and by the way, they aren't your normal John Smith, Jane Clarke, but instead turn of the century Germanic names).

The historical facts are breathtaking however, I couldn't complete this 100%, purely as I was becoming increasingly lost...

What a ride of a story! Annie Jacobsen draws you in with every sentence and every chapter giving you more and more on the top-secret military base that is, AREA 51!
I'm sure anyone who picks this book up is secretly a lover of conspiracy theories and most things 'war', but the historical information Annie describes, from the start of the Manhattan Project to the creation of the Lockheed U-2, is nothing short of breathtaking.

A book about life, with a lifeless narration.

An amazing read, that takes you through the annals of human history. With every sentence, a new breath of knowledge so intriguing it's hard to put down.
With such an abundance of information, the use of modern metaphors to help understand these historical facts is only hindered by the lackluster narration.
If you're not fazed by a slightly boring narration, I could not endorse this read more to anyone searching for a better understanding of the history of humankind.
