The story consists of three teenage characters who complement each other, giving diverse personality and experience for a lot of dialogue which the author seems to have a knack for and fun with: Jack, handy with science and bit of a walking encyclopaedia Britannica; Mike, a high school star surfer/player/jaunty talker with women always on his mind; Casey, young, adventurous, head over heels with Mike, and equipped with an honesty, spunky heart, and a drive for 'doing the right thing'. The content has wide popular appeal, and with quick pacing and crisp dialogue and short narration makes the story hum along.
Casey is a fun character, and although she's in the throes of teenage heartache, she is still savvy. I chuckled at the following line:
Heat rose in Casey's cheeks. She couldn't believe she was acting like one of Mike's girls at the beach, falling for the same dumb crap they did.Read more ›
As an adult reader, however, I found the constant bickering between the boys became annoying beyond belief. As a teen reader, I would probably have found it cute. Peebles did an awesome job of portraying teens as they are at their most annoying and it defiantly brought out the mother in me in that I wanted to smack their heads together! I'm not sure, though, that I would change anything. Maybe tone it down a bit or let them grow up a little. After everything they go through I would think they would get some level of maturity. Maybe.
I very much enjoyed reading this book with its twists and turns, constant adventure and even the time I wanted to smack those boys for being so immature! This is a definite must read.
I have to say my favorite character in this book is Jack. He's intelligent, he's witty, and he really gets Casey. The poor guy can't catch a break since Casey is clearly infatuated with Mike. Like any schoolgirl with a crush she is oblivious to anyone outside of her little obsession. Toward the end of the book, Casey seems to start noticing things about Jack that she never did before, making me hope desperately that Casey would turn her affections from Mike to him. The dynamic of this love triangle adds just one more interesting layer to an already complex and multi-dimensional story.
Peebles creates a world like something we would see on the silver screen, and creates visual effects through writing that you can literally picture in your mind's eye. Fierce dinosaurs will remind you of Jurassic park, giant man-eating snakes and spiders will make your skin crawl, and mutant bugs will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Space invaders in laser-shooting UFOs will make you look twice at the night sky. But even in a world inhabited by the deadliest creatures imaginable, the author manages to create some beautiful moments filled with singing flowers, butterflies that leave trails of fairy dust, color-changing sand, and glowing water.Read more ›
This book is fast paced, peppered with humor with lots of twists and turns with a cool, prehistoric setting and a mystery to be unwound. A refreshing read for those who love YA. If you like Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park or Robinson Crusoe you will love this story as it seems to have a little bit of each. It is the first book in a coming series. Great storytelling!
