    "Tyrannosaur Canyon"

    Excellent read. Made me want to stay in the car to finish the book, not easy to do for someone who is on the road as much as I am.

    "Great fun"

    This was a surprise. A nice twist on the treasure hunt / pirate genre. Definitely one of Douglas Preston's best efforts.

    "Great book!"

    Started off quick and pulls you into what's going on. I feel a bit educated after each of Preston's books!

    "Crichton Lite"

    Standard chase fare wrapped around the kind of science based story that Michael Crichton does a whole lot better.

    "Very Good"

    Interesting story line with enough twists & turns to hold your attention all the way through, though you could see a few of them coming from a mile away. The characters are very believable & I will definitely listen to more books by this author. For me, this is a straight ahead action/adventure & I was a little hard pressed to see why Audible includes this title under Science Fiction. Either way, a good read.
