Publisher's Summary

"I am often left to wonder why a zombie, walking around in the sun, smells better than a pooping dinosaur."
Two worlds collide in this action novelette. Zombies have destroyed civilization. Gasoline fuel is no longer an option, but humanity must find a way to survive. In response to trying to restore our way of life, we engineer franken-monsters. Because of their small brains and massive sizes, these beasts make quick work of farming and clearing land. These large creatures are immune to the zombie virus and perform excellently in loud conditions. They are easy to train. They behave like war horses, prone to help charge in and defend our livelihood.
In honor of the past, and to help build our future, we named these creatures dinosaurs.

What side are you on? Zombies or Dinosaurs?

My rating: 4 stars
Audiobook narrator Michael C. Gwynne rating: 4.5 stars

I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was a fun and short book. I have read a few zombie books but this one was certainly different. I really like the world that was created by James Livingood involving dinosaurs and zombies. I never thought of the farming profession as a deadly and thankless job. I think I have a lot more respect for farmers due to this book (of course farmers in our world are not dealing with zombies and dinosaurs… lucky…).

I was driving through a very rural area with lots of farms at night while I was listening to this book (and a full moon too – not that it had anything to do with anything). Needless to say, I was quite creeped out. I kept expecting a “blue blood” zombie to pop out of the cornfields while riding a dinosaur! This book could certainly be made into a longer novel with more backstory and description of the dinosaur creation/riding.

I thought the narrator did a great job with breathing life into this story. His voice inflection varied along with the tone of the book and really made the book that much more exciting.

Thanks for the free book, James!

* I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Zombies have destroyed civilization. People are struggling to find a way to survive now that gas supplies have been depleted.

Looking to create a source of powerful and cheap labour monsters are engineered. Dinosaurs seemed to be the perfect option. They are big. They are powerful, and their brains are small and best of all, they are immune to the zombie virus.

What could possibly go wrong?

I was not sure what to expect from this short audiobook. Zombies vs. Dinosaurs? I assumed it would be silly and a fun read. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the author actually made the scenario of both zombies and dinosaurs existing seem plausible. I was also pleasantly surprised by the storyline. It was interesting and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.

The description of how people were reclaiming farmland and the sub-culture of jobs stemming from that necessary process was well thought out and came across as believable.

All in all, PALE RIDER: ZOMBIES vs. DINOSAURS was an enjoyable audiobook.

The narrator had a very deep, manly voice. It was easy to picture that voice belonging to the lead character who was a man's man. The narrator also did a great job with the pacing of the story. He has a gift for using just the right amount of inflection in his voice at any given moment.

I rate this audiobook as 3.5 out of 5 stars.⭐⭐⭐
