Institute of Antiquities: Very Large Lizards (Episode 4) | [Barbara Goldstein]

Institute of Antiquities: Very Large Lizards (Episode 4)

Two picks from the warehouse arrive at the Institute: an ancient medallion mostly encased in granite and a map with an "X" near edge of the North American continental plate. The Institute members who stay to research the medallion need the help of a specialist and find themselves contending with a persnickety metallurgist. To get to the answer about the medallion, they break the rules, and what they discover is amazing, yet so scientically simple. Linda and Virgil have family issues.

Publisher's Summary

Two picks from the warehouse arrive at the Institute: an ancient medallion mostly encased in granite and a map with an "X" near edge of the North American continental plate. The Institute members who stay to research the medallion need the help of a specialist and find themselves contending with a persnickety metallurgist. To get to the answer about the medallion, they break the rules, and what they discover is amazing, yet so scientically simple. Linda and Virgil have family issues.

Those diving the Atlantic face rough conditions at every turn even before reaching their destination; Cynthia almost loses her life. But they do ultimately end the "horror" they were told to expect. Relationships are explored, paving the way for a more comfortable one between the Colonel and Irina.

    Story
    "I can't wait to read the next installment"
    Would you listen to Institute of Antiquities: Very Large Lizards (Episode 4) again? Why?

    Yes I would. What a hoot that something so tied to fantasy can also be hard science fiction! Institute of Antiquities has delivered yet another original science fiction story with a new concept.


    What other book might you compare Institute of Antiquities: Very Large Lizards (Episode 4) to and why?

    Arthur C Clarks 2010, the use of actual science leading me to believe that this is all possible.


    Have you listened to any of Barbara Goldstein’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have, and this one held my attention until I just could not wait till the end. The others each built up to this one, yet I was riveted by the pure and actual science used in each story.


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

    I was glued to every word that was read and delighted by how actual science was used in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I just can't wait for the next installment of Institute of Antiquities.
