I liked Carnivore a lot as a B movie kind of creature/monster genre book.
Amazon Customer
The characters are a bit cliche'd but done so in a way that suits the story and fits with the overall theme and cheesy feeling.
William
I almost gave up on it a third of the way through, but decided to give it a chance, as I dislike not finishing a book I start.

Format: Paperback
This is not a bad book, but it simply could have been much better. The story concerns a remote Antarctic station and a discovery of a frozen dinosaur egg. The egg is broght back to the station, where it hatches through a speed-up process using nuclear waste. What hatches is a T-rex baby, which very quickly grows into the scarriest man-eating machine ever to walk the Earth. What follows is alot of gore and violence as the T-rex kills and eats anything in sight. What kills the book is the stupid, idiotic female character. Her lines and actions are so dumb that the author destroyed a good idea by placing her inside this novel. Otherwise, it was fun.

I loved this book. I couldn't read it fast enough and hated to see it end. Where the hell is the sequel Mr. Clark!?
Carnivore uses numerous situations/plot elements from both versions of THE THING as well as Roger Corman's Carnisaur movies. And anyone who knows anything about the quality of life at the South Pole will find the whole thing laughable. But I'll be dipped in t-rex dung if I didn't finish this thing in a day or two. Mr. Clark...bring me a sequel! A real guilty pleasure, but I loved it!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By WMTHOMASJR@AOL.COM on September 28, 1997
Format: Paperback
The premise is simple enough. An Anartica expedition finds a dinosaur egg. The egg hatches and a T-rex runs about gobbling them like a starving child at a candy bowl. The story is predictible, but it is told well with the story moving swiftly. There is great tension at several story points. However, this is undoubtly the bloodiest story I have ever read. The author could have tone down some of the smashing and grinding of bones, the blood spurting, and the smell of rotting flesh. Not exactly the book to read while munching on something. But it will hold your interest.

I found this book to be excellent as that I love dinosaurs. I also found it to be quite tense and at times, thrilling. You know what the whole thing is about after the first raid, but along the way Ms. Clark adds a few details that may surprise you. If you like gore, then this is a book for you. I found that the carnage and blood only added to the book's intensity. But if you don't like dinos, blood, or the antarctic, you'd better veer away from this one.

Pleeeeeese, The book is very good but the girl has got to get an attitude adjustment. I'm female and I love animals in every shape and form but her obsession with 'DON'T hurt the big lizard' was a bit to much. Other than that I really enjoyed this book and could stand a few more like it...Bravo...Bring on a sequel. Love those dinos.

Format: Paperback
This wasn't a excellent book in the sense of I'll ever read it again. But I was not disappointed in this book. There is alot of carnage, and I mean ALOT. This dino eats everything in sight. He's intelligent, works things out. I didn't care that the dino never seemed to get "full". I didn't find this book scary just gory. You pretty much know who's going to survive until the end. It reads like a horror movie, this isn't a bad thing. It's easy reading and I found it be a page turner. The dino is relentless too, just like a horror movie where the bad guy just never seems to die once. If you are looking for a gory, quick, dino horror novel, this is for you. Whether the author did research on the subject at hand, I could really care less. I don't read for facts, not a fiction novel. The whole point is to just be a good story.

Is this a good book? No. You can tell right from the cover that it is not going to be a good book. Is it an entertaining book? YES!! The story reminds me a lot of John Carpenter's THE THING, only instead of an alien it's a magical tyrannosaur that can swim and survive subzero temperatures so that it can terrorize a base of people. My suggestion? If you can't have fun in a B-movie, you won't like this book. HOWEVER, if you love B-movies like I do, read and enjoy. This is definitely a guilty pleasure book!
