Dinosaurs, Nazis, Time Travel and a lot of fun, that is what goes together when you read Operation Montauk. Having spoken with the author a bit about this book, I went out to find and read it and I pleasantly surprised. I find a lot of "pulp" scifi to be boring, derivative and formed of pieces of other better books. This was not the case with Bryan Young's story here. Its fresh, its fun, and full of a lot of great characters. As mentioned in other reviews the side characters are a bit more interesting than the leads but honestly, I didn't mind. Together they form a great group of characters I could not put down.

Great Job Bryan Young! When's your next book?

I really, really enjoyed Operation: Montauk. It took a few chapters to get into the meat of the story, which is fitting as the main character is finding his way in an unexpected land.

I don't want to give away anything more than what is already in the other reviews and description of the book. Yes there are Nazis and dinosaurs and time travel and romance and all sorts of things. There is drive behind the story that compels you to keep reading, guess what may happen to the characters, and then does something completely different in a good way.

The only criticism I have for the story is a difference of opinion regarding the ending. To me I clicked to go to the next page and was shocked to be at the end of the book. WAIT a minute I hollered, thinking I've got a bad file or a glitch or something... I was really upset to see the end of the book become apparent. I enjoyed the characters and the story entirely too much to see it come to an end without at least a "Coming soon, Part II"!

Kudos to Bryan Young for writing an engaging and interesting story!

When I heard the premise for this book I was immediately interested. Who doesn't want to see all of these things wrapped up in a single narrative?

And Young knocks it out of the park with a perfect, pulpy summer poolside read.

He also creates some amazing characters along the way, including a chimp and a sexy starship captain named Valentine.

My only criticism? The side characters are more interesting than the main character, much in the same way Han Solo is more interesting than Luke Skywalker.

I laughed, I cried (I did-- a little, at a death late in the book. I won't spoil it. But it's so sad.) I flipped pages as fast as I could on my e-reader as the story pulled me along at breakneck speed, and I was left wanting more-- something the ending of the book teases. . . that there might be a sequel?

I just hope they can use their time-travelling powers to go back and save poor (character who dies who made me cry).

Operation Montauk is a FANTASTIC Sci-Fi, Action, YA...to be honest; the only category it falls into is EXCELLENT. It defies genres. This novel is an intense, fast read cover to cover. I don't like spoilers so I'm not going to get into specifics but lets just say that the time travel model used here is something I have never read and/or experienced before. The kindle price is a steal at $3.99. Highly recommended.

In the interests of full disclosure, I know Bryan. We've been at several science fiction conventions together, have chatted on several occasions, and appeared on a few author panels at the same time. He was nice enough to sign a copy of Operation: Montauk for me at GMX in Nashville last year and it finally made it to the top of my "To be read" pile.

The story is well written and fast paced. I liked the innovative treatment of time travel, which is refreshing to see as that trope is really difficult to bring a fresh perspective to.

It was a quick read and I was able to complete it in a single sitting of about four hours with lots of action and character interaction.

As for criticism, the romantic element felt a little forced to me and the villains could have been developed more, but these are minor comments when compared to the overall entertainment the story provided.

I loved this story. It was a fresh very fun read, with enough meat to it that I didn't feel like I was re-reading another story with different names. I absolutely loved the characters, and found each of them very interesting. I especially liked Valentine and felt I could relate to her need to always seem in control no matter what she was feeling. Loved the way you wrote such a strong woman! Also, I thought the way you wrote about the injured Tyrannosaurus was akin to the spider in “Do androids dream of electric sheep”. I always think it is very clever if you can make a reader feel empathy to something usually thought of as scary, or disgusting, or even a predator. Also, your description of the raptors was a fresh take, at least for me.

I'm not usually a reader of science fiction but a friend told me this book would be impossible to hate if I just read the first two chapters, I'd see.

I did that, then read more... and more.... and more.... the story really doesn't let you put it down. It keeps you turning to the next page to find out what happens and I was literally under my sheets balling up with tension.

Its so good and tense...

and I wish I could give it 5 stars, but the ending kind of left me hanging. It was a good ending and gave me a pretty complete picture of what happened, but I didn't want ti to end, so when it ended where it did I was satisfied but... grrrr....

I'll be checking out more by the writer. For sure.
