This book is a wild ride. From the first page up until the very end, the action is gripping and non-stop. The story pulls you in, carries you along, and threatens at numerous points to throw your emotions into a meat grinder, so often are the characters on the brink of disaster.

But that's the way pulp novels are supposed to be, and Dinocalypse Now delivers in spades. I could not put it down, and am eagerly awaiting the next installment in the trilogy.

My only complaint? Having to wait for the next book to come out. The ending is a cliffhanger and oh man, is it a doozy!

Dinocalypse Now is a grand return to the style of Pulp Adventure. Silly, impossible, scientifically questionable, all true, but none of it matters. It is fun, witty, clever and packed with action, adventure and even a little bit of romance.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who is into light hearted action and adventure.

Do you hate books that take a chapter or two to gain some speed? If so, you'll like Dinocalypse Now. The cover is how the book starts -- a dinosaur invasion. DN starts at ramming speed and doesn't slow down. Two-fisted heroes, dinosaurs, and more all deliver action that's worth every penny.

Role-playing publisher Evil Hat's first outing into novels is a stunning start to what looks to be a beautiful new relationship! The first in a trilogy, and also the first of a series of seven novels based in the universe of the Spirit of the Century role-playing game, Dinocalypse Now features a cast of daring heroes and wonderfully imaginative and realized villains.

The writing is slick and evocative of the pulp era of Burroughs or Howard, and author Chuck Wendig (Blackbirds) proves to be equally at home writing pulse-pounding action and quiet (and not-so-quiet!) character moments.

Dinocalypse Now is a great read for fans of the pulp era of action and adventure, featuring the classic pulp tropes of dinosaurs, apes, jet-packs, portals and lost civilizations! A true page-turner from start to finish.

Dinocalypse Now by Chuck Wendig is an excellent pulp novel. The first part of a trilogy that is rife with interesting characters, interesting locations and amazing adventure. If you enjoy over the top adventure this book is for you. If you enjoy intelligent Gorilla's that happen to be professors, this book is for you. If you like the idea of a psychic dinosaur invasion, this book is for you.

It is a quick and fun read. Just like it should be.

If you take your sci-fi seriously then this book is not for you. But if you yearn for the marvelous pulp stories of yesteryear then pick this book up now. I had an amazing time reading this book.

Based on the characters and institutions established in the Evil Hat role playing game "Spirit of the Century" this book is a non-stop roller-coaster ride filled with over the top heroes and ridiculous villains that you can't wait to read more about. The Conqueror Ape? Psychosaurs? Pterodactyls in NYC? Yes! And MORE!

I wanted to like this more than I did. Chuck Wendig seems to be very prolific lately, and his subjects are right in line with my interests. So I was a little sad that this book covering an RPG in a fantastical alternate history setting was something of a chore to get through. I liked the characters and their personalities, and especially enjoyed the feeling of an RPG party being voiced, but several plot twists were oddly telegraphed. That said, I will likely read it again at some point.

This is part of the "new pulp" movement. And like most novels I have read in that vein, the author seems to have captured the overall energy of the pulp era without any of its real charm or thoughtfulness. The story never falls below a superficial threshhold of action and cardboard characters. This would have been far better as a comic book.
