AREA 51 An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base

by | Read by Annie Jacobsen

History • 16.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This exhaustive history of Area 51 describes the secret military base that sits on a thousand square miles in the Nevada desert. Jacobsen reveals much about its nuclear testing site, black-ops training ground, test flights, and rumored encounters with aliens. The author’s reading is straightforward as she recites detail after detail, pulling stories from recently declassified materials and personal interviews. Her delivery has little emotion or differentiation between narrative and dialogue. Listeners expecting a tell-all about UFOs and aliens will be disappointed, yet secrets are revealed. Sixteen hours are more than enough to convince listeners that there’s more in this desert country than sand and scorpions. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
