    "Saucer Savage Planet' is the third book in a fast-paced science fiction series that begins when the Roswell saucer buried at the bottom of the Atlantic is stolen by Adam Solo, a marooned alien whose objective is to summon a starship, but regrettably the communications system has been damaged. He turns for help to Rip Cantrell, Charlotte (Charley) Pine and Arthur (Egg) Cantrell the guardians of a second saucer recovered from the sands of the Sahara. In a world that's terrified of an alien invasi [...]

    I am always in the mood for a good sci-fi book. Sadly, I did not find that in this book. Although I would not classify this book as just sci-fi. It also has the makings of a good thriller story. Yet, I found nothing interesting about the story or the characters. Maybe if I had read the first book I would have developed that character background and relationship better. What my problem was with this book is that a lot of the times the conversations between the characters did not seem to go anywhe [...]

    Saucer: Savage Planet by Stephen Coonts concludes the series originally began with Saucer (2003) and Saucer: The Conquest (2006) and is recommended for those who need closure.Rip Cantrell, discovers a flying saucer buried in the Sahara desert with help from Charlotte Pine and his uncle Arthur “Egg” Cantrell. Only a year later a second saucer is discovered buried in the Great Barrier Reef. Pharmaceutical baron Harrison Douglas is behind the funding for the recovery efforts because he believes [...]

    About a decade ago Stephen Coonts told about a flying Saucer (paper), 140,000 years old, discovered in the Sahara. Rip Cantrell discovered it, got it working, and with test-pilot Charlotte Pine gets away from an evil rich man. In Saucer: The Conquest another saucer in Area 51 is stolen by a bad man and ended up deep in the pacific. Now in Saucer: Savage Planet (paper from St. Martin's Griffin ) we are introduced to a 1300 year-old pilot marooned on Earth and looking quite human. The whole world [...]

    I think this book wanted to be funny, but somehow did not tickle my funny bone. Characters were all cardboard cutouts and probably dependent upon development that occurred in earlier books in the series, none of which I've read. The aliens were just regular guys, hardly alien, and there was no sense of wonder. The goofy interplay between the president, politicians, and drug czars was simply too weird to be funny, and in no way was I able to suspend my disbelief in order to enjoy the story. I've [...]

    Listened to on CD. Was pretty good. Never read the the first one but got caught up pretty quick. There was a little unrealistic stuff with the President, but on the whole was a good story. Nice interpretation of the Roswell incident.

  • Patrick Shelly Jr

    Overall, not a bad read. Quick pace, good characters. I liked it!

  • Marc

    While I enjoyed the story it was also frustrating as it had so many inconsistencies both within the story and with science. Adam Solo has a long history of escaping tight spots and twice in the story has a campfire going that allows searches to locate them and to start an attack. He had two saucers at his disposal and yet was unable to hide for a week and was unable to defend himself each time he was discovered?(view spoiler)[The major issue with the science is reconciling that an anti aging dru [...]

  • Linda

    I found this a very easy read. I do love stories about aliens. This one brought in the story of a new saucer found and the one at Area 51. I think it was pretty tame as far as sci fi stories go but still quite enjoyable. Some interesting ideas about how it could go with aliens different from most movies you see.

    One memorable line. “Bad news travels on a fast horse”. Kind of sums this novel 4 me.

  • Dennis

    This is the last book in the Saucer trilogy and I enjoyed all three books. Coonts may not be a world class author but his stories are fun to read and pretty inventive.

  • Greg

    Fair as a YA book. Poor for adults

  • Mel Harris

    Not such a fan. I started with this one as I grabbed it randomly, and I was kinda bored. Sounded goodke a good sci-fi book. :(

  • Stuart Austwick

    A trilogy well worth readingI have just read Stephen Coonts' Saucer trilogy and from Saucer to the last book I had to read the entire series. In my opinion this represents some of his absolute best work. His understanding of everything from A to Z when it comes to the human race is phenomenal and well represented in his Saucer trilogy. Don't miss this series. I am sorry I did not read it earlier.

  • Paula Kramer

    This was a good but typical and predictable science fiction book. Two flying saucers have already been found on earth and the belief is that aliens have on their computers the secret to extra long life since they are able to travel so far for so many years. The truth is there have been a few living here for years and have fit into out society for years and even though the main starship is coming back for them, they don't want to leave. Big pharmaceutical companies are of course trying to find ou [...]

    From My Newsletter Number 75:This review is on Saucer, Savage Planet by Stephen Coonts. I read this book before I realized it is the last book in a three book Saucer series. It just sounded interesting to me since I needed a good book to read at the beach.It starts out with a human looking alien named Adam Solo on a salvage ship in the Atlantic Ocean with the CEO of World Pharmaceuticals named Dr. Harrison Douglas. No one knows Adam Solo is an alien and needs the ship to communicate with his peo [...]

  • Ed Tinkertoy

    I teetered between a four or five star rating for this book. I loved it; read it in just a couple days because I couldn't put it down. Lots of action until the ending which was kinda slow.In this book rich pharmaceutical guys have the saucer that crashed into the ocean lifted with the goal of finding and marketing the secrets for longer live. But then the saucer is stolen right off of the barge by a guy named Solo, who we later learn is an alien who came to Earth in the first saucer and had been [...]

    Saucer Savage Planet is continuation of Stephen Coonts Saucer series. It revolves around a UFO with advanced alien tech that is found in the Libyan desert and is affect on the main characters and their greater world. Out of all the books in his series it's the longest and the weakest. Where the prior books had action or humor going for them, this story aims at and fails to hit the target of political commentary. To his credit Coonts does use the story to look at consequences that the sudden intr [...]

  • D.L. Morrese

    I wasn't sure what to make of this book at first. It was kind of funny because the characters, events, and science were so simplistic, often absurdbut I wasn't sure if this was intentional. Was it comic science fiction, or was it bad pulp science fiction? I finally concluded it must be the former, but it could have been funnier. It has its moments, but it lacks the kind of intelligent wit or insightful social commentary that marks a great work of comic sci-fi.The story is about the recovery of a [...]

    When book 2 ended, the Roswell saucer had crashed into the ocean, and Egg, Rip, and Charley had returned to Egg's farm in Missouri to live. As this story opens, the Roswell saucer is being raised from the ocean by a pharmaceutical CEO who has hopes of recovering information from its computers for the development of new drugs. Unknown to him, one of his technicians, Adam Solo, is actually an alien, marooned on Earth for thousands of years, who wants to use the saucer's communications gear to call [...]

  • The Book Breeze

    Without having read the first two books in the series, I easily stepped into this one and I enjoyed it so much I’ve added the first two in the series to my TBR pile.I really liked the characters and thought the story was well paced. It flowed nicely from scene to scene so much so I didn’t want to put it down. Earthlings and aliens alike came across a little better behaved than most sci-fi offerings. The bad guys in this story were the money-grubbing pharma moguls and their quest for eternal [...]

  • Phillis

    I really enjoyed this book. It finally finishes the "Saucer " trilogy.The storyline picks up a few months after the last book ended, even tho real time is many years later. I liked the bits of humour in the absurdity of some of the plot. This book doesn't take itself too seriously. We can only hope the humans on this earth act in a semi decent way if we were to ever get a visit from an alien race. There were a couple of bad guys trying to cash in on the saucers hidden treasures. Their greed out [...]

    Audiobook Review1 1/2 StarsWhere, oh where are Mork and Mindy when you need them?Having read the reviews as well as some of the previous Saucer series, I thought why not? Just a lark, and some fun. Like a half-hour sitcom. NOPE. Had to stop after an hour or so of listening. This is a foolish, simple-minded tale about aliens, flying saucers, a little history, and a bunch of really dumb and greedy people. It was touted as humorous. I didn't laugh once. The author does a lousy and sloppy job of pul [...]

  • Michael Tuccillo

    Fun readThe authors look on life vibrates throughout all three books. Life is an adventure, grab it by the horns and have fun with it. Don't take it so serious, and enjoy it. Good things to remember, so you don't get so board. The things our heroes get away with are pretty big and sometimes unbelievable. But it works to get the story out there. You even get to kind of like the president! Kind of, after all, he is a politician. Anyhow, great fun story, totally different than I thought it would be [...]

  • Eric

    Coonts' "Saucer" series was a hoot. The media and politcians didn't stand a chance."The president and his advisors were serious men (and one serious woman) engaged in the serious business of politics, i.e dividing the pie in such a way as to create maximun advantage for themselves.""Glenn Beck, the gadfly, quietly lights the fuse and walks away."Really, these books are filled with one liners that had me in stiches. The story line was fun and light, but Goonts' satire made these books a delightfu [...]

  • Carey

    Having read the first two, I felt the need to read the third to see how Coonts would wrap it all up. A few paragraphs in and I remembered how bad this author writes. I can't even believe this drivel or its predecessors were even published. The writing and dialogue is so unrealistic and juvenile! I'd say it should be a kids book but that would be insulting to the intelligent ones who see it for the none sense it is. Really too bad. The storyline had such potential but was, unfortunately, executed [...]

  • Jeroen

    The third book in Stephen Coonts' Saucer series appears to suffer from a sense of purpose. When reading it, it feels like the president conveys the thoughts and emotions of the author, of having enough of the main characters and not knowing how things will end. Given the books ending I am still a bit curious about where the series will go from here (if at all), but currently don't care if it will or won't continue. The first book is still the best of the three and neither of the follow-ups has c [...]

  • Robert

    The third and what should be the final book in this series, hopefully. The aliens are among us us and E.T. wants to phone home. However this will bring more aliens and what will happen when they get here, perhaps they may have brought their recipe books with age old recipes containing humans. Oh no! Panic in the streets and all that. Rip, Charley and Egg will be right in the middle of this mess of course. This series has been a tough one. Overall with all three books averaged out I would go some [...]

  • George

    This action-scifi book is a comment on society and heavily laden with tongue-in-cheek. Coonts uses the story to explore consequences of new advanced technology in a society. He does ask the question what would happen to the economy if people could live for a 1000 years? However, the Petty Officer adviser (man on the street) to the POTUS is a bit over the top. Also, I don't believe that he deals with first contact very well--a White House reception? Give me a break. Maybe I missed the humor in th [...]
