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.

the overall story was pretty good. the only criticism i have is the constant talk of a cetain characters erection and urges. it was completely out of place and random from the whole story.

Where does The Dinosaur Four rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Wow. I've not particularly read A dingo book like this before. I've seen the Jurassic park movies and the old lost world type stories but this really got me. How long would you survive if you were zapped from your local coffee shop to the time of the dinosaurs? A great book that I couldn't stop listening too.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved the premise. The characters and their interactions are great but I really enjoyed the story.
What does Nick Podehl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I thought the narration was great adding tension and pace in all of the right places. The characters are also well drawn out. Nicely done!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
If I was to bring anything our from the story without spooling it I'd say that the story itself is good and that the description of the environment and the prehistoric creatures that inhabit it is really well done.
Any additional comments?
