Classic Pulp Adventuring

Would you consider the audio edition of Dinocalypse Now to be better than the print version?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dinocalypse Now?

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!

What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

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.

Any additional comments?

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

My husband and I have been craving some good pulp fiction. It's been surprisingly difficult to find. It occurred to me that the creators of the spirit of the century role playing game may have written material to coincide with the Rpg templates; like legend of the five rings or 7th seas. We were delirious with joy to see they had!
It's witty and the best kind of ridiculous. A quick read. My only minor complaint would be the authors aversion to writing fight scenes. He tended to "skip to the end" of a scene which means the story always moved along at a brisk pace but was an obvious break.

Fun pulpy tripe

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes. It's just a fun action packed story. A tribute to pup adventures of old, without any pretention to be high art, and without feeling the need to mock or parody.

Any additional comments?

The main reason I wanted this was to get a feel for the universe of the role playing game on which it's based, and to get some idea of how 30's pulp action stories flow. I'd say it does the job brilliantly.
