O, I was a bit annoyed with all the lecture moments, in which the author felt he needed to explain various issues. If you love paleontology, you already know about the Brontosaurus/Apatosaurus issue, Continental Drift, etc. etc. I guess it helped those who are on the fringe of the dinosaur world, but it would seem that 90% of the readers of this book would be dinosaur lovers already and be very familiar with those points. I could be wrong about the readership, though.
The naive young hero's elected to 'test drive' a newly invented time machine. When something goes wrong and he's marooned in the Jurassic era, Dawson's inspired to write a message in the river mud before fleeing for his life from a hungry predator.
So far, so good - an interesting premise for a novel that would be a 5-star one for me with a little more editing, until the following questions rose in my mind:
a) How do the scientists happen upon Dawson's plea for help in the mud?
b) How are they able to work out what time-period he's actually in, as the machine was clearly
c) Was the machine programmed to go to the 'Dino-era', or somewhere else originally?
d) Did the Machine return to the laboratory? (if so, why not send someone else, back to get Dawson,
using the same settings already programmed in)?
e) If it didn't return, but went somewhere else, how would they communicate with Dawson?
f) If Taggit was so hell-bent on getting specimens, why didn't he go himself in the first place,
rather than Dawson?
The amount of dino-talk, though initially interesting, soon became lecture-like and more suited to an educational text book rather than a novel that, (despite the rather 'flat' interaction between slightly undeveloped characters) would make an excellent action movie.

This growing trend of having endless sequels to what would have been a good novel on its own, is exhausting... What ever happened to letting our imagination take flight after a enjoyable read?
It’s a good one, get it.
