Decent, But Not Excellent

I'm a little at odds with myself in regards to this book. It was definitely entertaining enough to keep me attentive, but I wouldn't say that it was anything like a great work of literary genius.

The book starts with the owner of a small coffee shop in Denver. One morning while serving customers, the coffee shop and everyone in it are transported back in time to an era filled with jungles and dinosaurs. I thought the concept was interesting, but a little cheesy.
Most of the story read like Jurassic Park or the Lost World, but not quite as well thought out.
Most of the characters were very predictable, stereotypical, and one-dimensional.
Also, the ending was practically a rip-off from the second Jurassic Park movie...

Narration was top notch, despite the story.

Having said all of that, I did enjoy this book, but probably won't re-listen like I do most of my audiobooks...

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Such a fun read!

This was such a fun and entertaining read. I thoroughly enjoyed it!!

The story follows a group of people who are in a coffee shop and get transported back to the age of the Dinosaurs. Just how and why, is something they have to figure out while trying to survive in a world where everything seems to want to eat you.

The plot of this, while completely unbelievable, was so much fun. Imagine going for coffee only to exit and you are in a different age, one where the animals will stomp on you or eat you! What would you do!! Well we find this out when a group of strangers get transported to an age with Dinos. They have to work together to get answers, but also to get food etc.

The characters were all well written. There is one particular character that I disliked, but that's the way the author wrote him. He was creepy and gave me chills! Each of the characters have their own strengths but can they work together? I loved the dynamics between the characters. Some hit it off straight away, while others were complete a88holes. It made them so much more believable because you know that in a room full of strangers, it takes time to trust them and not everyone will get on.

In all, this is an action packed, engaging, entertaining and addicting read. Going into it I wasn't executing to like it as much as I did, and that's in big part thanks to the writing style. The author just grabs you from the very first page and doesn't let go. This is also his debut book I think, so I'm equally impressed with that.

Nick Podehl did a great job. There were quite a few different characters but he managed to give each their own voice and personality. He also managed to portray the fear and confusion each felt when they realised where they were.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affects my thoughts.*
