Rodger and Savannah are travelling along the interstate when they enter a storm. This storm is weird though and they know they need to find shelter soon. As they look, they hit something, an animal of some sort. Savannah recognises it, but it can't be what she thinks, because they are extinct!! When the thing attacks her husband she kills it and drives to the first place she sees to get help, a diner. While in the diner, the people inside realise that Dinosaurs are roaming around and extremely weird things are happening. Just what is going on?
This is a short listen and as such suffers a little with the character development and the plot. The plot is fast paced and entertaining but it just doesn't make much sense and really needs to be expanded upon. I felt like that if the book was a little longer, it would have been great! Same with the characters, I didn't connect with any of them nor did I really care what happened them.
Saying that, it was still a fun listen. The action starts right from the get go and continues the whole way through. Its an intriguing idea and I would love to see another book!!
The narrator did a good job with this. He portrayed the feelings and emotions really well and gave life to some of the characters. I will have to check out more by him.
I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Spitzer puts a pretty good book together, there were a few problems, but I can overlook them to a certain extent. One thing that bugs me is when people write about something based only on a movie they have seen, such as the Jurassic Park francise. Velociraptors were never so big that they could tear through a car. They were the size of turkeys for pete's sake, some as big as chickens. This is a legitimate issue for me, becuase when the past is catching up to the future it should be accurate. Secondly, it is most likely that Spinosaurus was a fish eater. So, research helps.
As for the story it moved pretty quickly, and had a Mist (Stephen King) feel to it. I enjoyed how you got into different character's heads, and each of them was believable. The ending was satisfactoy, but went out more on a bang than an explosion.
Baldree does a good job narrating, and utilizes numerous voices for the characters.
