    Story
    "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!

    Story
    "Probably my last Oliver Wyman-read book."

    I'm anxious to read another book by Wendig; most of the reviews of his horror and adventure books are very promising. Unfortunately I can't seem to get bast Wyman's reading style, which suffers from a cadence which, once noticed, I found gratingly predictable. Wyman's a fine actor during the dialog parts, and manages a nice range of characterizations, but his narrative tone just frustrates me.

    I'm going to re-read the book in text format and see if I have a different impression. As it was, I couldn't wait to be finished and move on to a different book.

    "Pulp Adventure"

    You are going to want to go ahead and pick up "Beyond Dinocalypse" at the same time you get this one- just TRUST ME. This is a good story- lots of action & adventure. There are a lot of characters to keep track of but each one brings something unique to the story.

    Oliver Wyman gives another wonderful performance with this book.

    Note: Knowledge of the Spirit of the Century game is not necessary to enjoy this book.
