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?

This is a great adventure that combines time travel, Nazis, space travel and dinosaurs. That may sound like a lot of things to cram into one novel, but Mr. Young did an admirable job in writing a fun adventure. This is a break from the norm for science fiction, and I recommend you give it a read.

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 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).

Yeah, i'm not going to finish that review title, you already said it in your head.

Anyway, I'm here to review this amazing work of American literature called Operation: Montauk. I read the authors other books... Lost At The Con, Man Against the Future, God Bless You, Mr. Vonnegut, Confessions of an Independent Filmmaker to name a few and I must say that all these works have been fantastic.

This book stands up with and perhaps beyond the others. Time travel, soldiers, dinosaurs, Nazi's, a love story, a sexy strong willed female captain... I read through this book so fast the first time because I couldn't put it down and upon reading it again I had the same experience.

The author isn't predictable and I had no idea what was going to happen next. His descriptions and imagery bring you into the book much like when you were a child and you could experience everything like it was first hand.

My review will be short because you should already be reading this book, not the horrible typings of some guy you don't know on the intertrons.

Get the book, love it, come back here and admit to me that I was right.

Thank you Bryan Young, you brought the world of wonder and reading back into my life. Read a sample if you must but I'm telling you, you'll want the whole book for your collection forever. Purchase now.
