Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The dinosaur known as "raptor" first became well known through Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park (Knopf, 1990). Revolutionary paleontologist Bakker (The Dinosaur Heresies, LJ 11/1/86), who consulted on the special effects for the film adaptation, has written a novel that might be subtitled "A Year in the Life of a Dinosaur," as he tells the story of Raptor Red, a giant carnivore of the Early Cretaceous period. Having lost her mate in a botched hunting attack, Red (so-named because of the red stripe on her snout distinguishing her from other raptor species) joins forces with her sister and her sister's three chicks to survive in a world of hostile natural forces. Bakker manages to mix scientific theories?some of which are definitely on the cutting edge?with a rip-roaring narrative. Perhaps even more miraculously, he has created a sympathetic nonhuman heroine without anthropomorphizing her into a Disney character. This astonishing and successful novel will appeal to a wide audience and belongs in all fiction collections.

From Booklist

Introducing his superb animal biographical "novel," Bakker reveals that the "velociraptors" in the movie Jurassic Park were of just speculative provenance. No bones for raptors that big had been found. Then, during filming, they were. Bakker, once paleontology's bad boy for insistently advocating such heresies as that dinosaurs were warm-blooded, imagines a year in the life of such a dinosaur, a young adult female he dubs, on account of her distinctive species markings, Raptor Red. She has come to Utah over the land bridge from Asia in a pack including her sister and the sister's two chicks. Her year is action filled, featuring an on-and-off-and-on relationship with an eligible male, conflicts with the impulsive sister, the oversight of an old dactyl (i.e., winged dinosaur) who is symbiotic with her pack, and vivid encounters with prey and rival carnivores that Bakker loads with biological and evolutionary information. Analogizing the raptors to modern wolves and eagles, Bakker attributes considerable cognition and emotion to them, which makes his book all the more exciting and provocative. Good reading for animal lovers from 10 to 100. Ray Olson
