Classic Pulp Adventuring
Honestly, no, but that's because I love reading books myself and imagining my own characters. That said, this audiobook is definitely one of the best I've listened to. Looking forward to more in this series from the same narrator.
There are loads of fantastic scenes, full of comedy, action and adventure, but without wandering into spiler territory, let's say the opening fight around the Empire State Building. Don't cross FDR!
His character voice work was fantastic! His Professor Khan took a bit to get used to as it was the most dramatically different from my own imagination, but after a chapter or two, it started to feel right, and I really got into it. I think it'll always be how I hear the Son of Khan from now on! Mr. Wyman's pacing is fantastic as well, and the chapters flowed at about the pace I expected them too.
It made me alugh throughout, from the wonderful characterisations to the action-packed combat. The finale was suitably dramatic and emotionally charged, and leads directly into the sequel.
Dinocalypse Now is a wonderful piece. Having read it myself prior to the audiobook, I can also say that the audio is a faithful presentation of the story, well crafted and narrated with genuine life. If you've been starved for some new pulp adventures in the style of the classics, such as The Lost World, or Doc Savage, then Dinocalypse Now is a must-read, or, in this case, a must-listen!
Just what I was looking for
