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.

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!

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.

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.

After receiving a tip that FDR is going to be assassinated, the Century Club spring into action, only to find they've been led into a trap! Psychic dinosaurs invade the world from seven dimensional portals, led by Khan, the Conqueror Ape, and his simian horde! But who is pulling Khan's strings? And can his son, Professor Khan of the Century Club, help his friends defeat his father and avert the Dinocalypse?

Psychic dinosaurs, talking apes, yes, this book is that much fun. Set in the world of Evil Hat's Spirit of the Century RPG, the real kind, not the video game kind, Dinocaypse Now is a tribute to the pulp magazines of the 1930's, from it's relentless action to it's intentionally purple prose.

The characters are an interesting mix. There's Sally Slick, a smart inventor who resembles Rosie the Riveter, Mack Silver, the pilot/Doc Savage type, Jet Black, the stand-in for The Rocketeer, Benjamin Hu, mystic detective, Professor Khan, the talking gorilla who's also a teacher at Oxford, and Amelia Stone, lady Indiana Jones.

The plot is pretty simple. Super-villains, supposedly led by Khan the Conqueror, are capturing members of the Century Club and subjugating the world with psychic dinosaurs. However, there's someone lurking in the shadows with a much more sinister plan.

Like I said, it's a lot of fun and didn't have much chance of being otherwise with all the dinosaurs and talking apes in it. Wendig works some modern sensibilities in as well. Sally Slick is no shrinking violet, that's for sure. I was really glad the love triangle between her, Silver, and Jet Black didn't become the focal point of the story. Professor Khan wound up being my favorite characters, his jungle instincts conflicting with his academic nature.
