Publisher's Summary

Ex-cop Henry Shore has been Chief Park Ranger at Crater Lake National Park for eight years and he likes his park and his life the way it's been. Safe. Tranquil. Predictable. But he's about to be tested in so many ways. First the earthquakes begin, people begin to go missing, then there's some mysterious water creature that's taken up residence in the caves below Crater Lake and it's not only growing in size, it's aggressive and cunning and very hungry.

And it's decided it likes human beings. To eat.

And it can come up onto land.

So Henry, with the help of his wife, Ann; a young paleontologist named Justin; and a band of brave men, must not only protect his park and his people from the monster but somehow find where it lives and destroy it before it can kill again.

Now DINOSAUR LAKE by Kathryn Meyer Griffith is a 2014 EPICS EBOOK AWARDS *FINALIST* in their suspense/Thriller category.

Good Escape Listening.

If you could sum up Dinosaur Lake in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining, light, fun.

Which scene was your favorite?

I loved the descriptions of Crater Lake and the Park. The book is not particularly deep or wet your pants thrilling but if you're looking to suspend reality and be entertained by a lake monster for a few hours this will fit the bill. If you read the description and think you might be interested you probably won't be disappointed. The writing and narration are good.

Dinosaur Lake

Would you try another book from Kathryn Meyer Griffith and/or Johnnie C. Hayes?

Yes,I already have

Was Dinosaur Lake worth the listening time?

yes

Any additional comments?

There are monsters in Crater Lake!Although I didn't LOVE this book,I enjoyed the story.I found the science side lacking.I was expecting a specific dinosaur to be named,not just referred to as 'monsters' throughout the book.I liked the storyline.The narrator seemed completely wrong for this book.His reading seemed lackluster and needed depth and feeling. I think this book would be great for the YA crowd.I'd have loved it as a teen.

Scary Adventure!

Where does Dinosaur Lake rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Pretty high up there. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dinosaur Lake?

The last few chapters had me a nervous wreck!

Which character – as performed by Johnnie C. Hayes – was your favorite?

The main character. He felt very likable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes.

Any additional comments?

Mr. Hayes gave the characters a very down-to-earth feel, which I thought was very appropriate for this book. Loved the book, too.

Scary good!

Purchased as Whispersync on the cheap courtesy of EBooksHabit.
I have several works by this author, and bought this because I was delighted to get one of her books so cheaply, a real win-win!
Great lead-in and mood setting, characters established early and well. Characters are well developed and there is no problem relating to the reactions and dilemmas of each. The plot is well developed and nicely paced with some really good plot twists.
Narrator expands upon the characters and is an excellent audio performer.

Fun and exciting dinosaur adventure!

If you could sum up Dinosaur Lake in three words, what would they be?

Dinosaurs are Awesome!

What did you like best about this story?

The story was a straightforward adventure, not a lot of over done military weapons or insane carnage. I also liked the characters, and the setting was wonderful. I appreciate the lack of bad language and explicit sex scenes too.

Have you listened to any of Johnnie C. Hayes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't, but I would definitely listen to another one. His "down home" style was perfect.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There's Something in Crater Lake ... and it's Hungry!

Any additional comments?

I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, which I already own.

Dinosaur Lake

Any additional comments?

Dinosaur Lake is an exciting and frightening story that places big and powerful dinosaur never before discovered right in the park's midst. This violent creature must survive and has discovered that those screaming, silly little humans make great nourishment..It reminds me of Jurasick Park.

A dinosaur thriller with a 1950's B movie flavor!!

If you could sum up Dinosaur Lake in three words, what would they be?

I can't. Theres dinosaurs, good ole boy park rangers, and 1950's Mayberry feels. <br/>Maybe I'm interpreting this book a little different from others, but to me, this book had a definite Sheriff Andy saves the town from Dinosaurs! vibe to it. I'm not complaining at all, I enjoyed this book very much, as well as the narrators interpretation.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Park Ranger Henry Shore. During the entire book I was feeling "Sheriff Andy and the Valley of the Dinosaurs" in a mix of 1950's B movies, which I happen to love, so this was a great book for me. I enjoyed all the side characters introduced. The world building was good, and the author definitely captured the essence of an old fashioned state park atmosphere.

What does Johnnie C. Hayes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

At first I was a little put off by the deep slow drawl of the narrator, but as I got into the book, and got to know Henry and company, I found his voice and interpretation to be just right.

Who was the most memorable character of Dinosaur Lake and why?

Henry Shore

Any additional comments?

This is not a great book, but its a fun read and worth a credit. a PG rating suitable to younger listeners. Some gore and tense moments, and some characters do get "eaten" by the dinosaur.

Started off slow but ended well

It took some time for me to get use to the narrator. He sounds like he's reading down to the audience, like he's reading YA lit. The story picked up
Significantly towards the middle and never faltered after that. Not sure if I'll continue this series but I will listen to more of the author's audiobooks.

A good listen and fast paced

I really liked this book, it rolled together very well and I thought the narrator did a pretty good job. Not as full on or as descriptive as say jurassic Park but definitely had its own type of gripping story. Definitely not a boring 10hrs, Ide recommended it.
