    Great book

    This reminded me a lot of Stargate. Some interesting concepts with lots of action and good characters.

    Good good.

    I really enjoyed this book. I actually put off other work that I really should've gotten done in order to read it. To tell the truth, I've had this book for about 2 or 3 years and put off reading it and put off reading it and put off reading it. Since eigth grade I've been reading the Area 51 series (same author) and the Atlantis series (same author, different penname); I've really enjoyed those books and I figured while I'm waiting for the next books in those series to come out, I'll read The Rock. I almost wasn't going to read it. As it turned out I wasn't able to put it down. Now I'm very glad I did. I thought that it might have started out a little slow, but that could've been due to my not wanting to read it. After I got into it a little more it was like, 'Whoa!' It was a lot more interesting and supprising than I'd anticipated. The paranoia in it got a little irrating but other than that I loved it. Anyway, now that I've rambled on forever, if you read this book I don't think that you will be disappointed (at least I hope not anyway).
