This is another of Dan's great works... suspense, thrill, moving, and an excellent progression thru the whole thing! Lots of technology, and a long climactic ending keep you drawn in thru the whole thing! Whether or not it's factual I don't know, but he writes like it is, and because off that, the story builds on its own foundations. I would love to read more stuff like this.
I like the story, but there are a few little nit-picky details that get left out in the abridged version that really need to be included. The idea of a dinosuar succesfully wearing a human "skin" suit and speaking english is crazy, but it adds a little twist to a typical "Dick Tracy" detective story. Some of the imagery is a bit hard to imagine with the given descriptions, but it's still worth the read. I'll be looking for the sequels soon.
You will get caught up in this book. I am not cathlic, but I still found the references interesting, and I found myself thinking ahead constantly to what could be happening. A lot of people argue about the right and wrong of religion in this book, and whether or not it is true and factual I do not know... nor am I here to debate that. Whatever religion you do or don't believe in, this is a very fine work, and it deserves to be read (or listened to) by EVERYONE!
I like dogs, and this book plays them out in a complex way. The story moves along at a good pace, and the readers' voices (1 male, 1 female) are very good to the parts. Although the mechanics of a humanoid canine are quite awkward, it's past to look past that into the story. If you like German history and large breed dogs, you'll like this story. I was bummed in the missing Rottweiler, a must-have German breed, and my favorite... and that the story was too short. At least, I don't recall hearing anything about rotties.
