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.

Great concept, entertaining story

I can't remember when 'Jurassic Park' was published, but I believe it's been that long since I read a book that mixed modern-day humans and technology with prehistoric dinosaurs. Nothing against Mr. Crichton, and I'll admit my memory is fuzzy, but I think I enjoyed this story more.

I thought the author had a creative and enjoyable take on the 'Humans meet dinosaurs' trope. Pacing was good, the narrator was excellent, and the story kept me engaged. It was definitely a worthwhile listen.
