He’s Very, Very Hungry – Carnivore by Leigh Clark #LeighClark
Carnivore by Leigh Clark (1997-04-01) - Leigh Clark

I borrowed Carnivore by Leigh Clark from my sister, Laura, at fuonlyknew.

We both love creature features and will drop everything to read one.

 

Here’s a tease for you:

 

“This isn’t going to work out the way you think!”

 

Carnivore

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

As the death count rises, with body parts, and blood and guts flying, this creature feature shows no mercy to anyone for their arrogance and overstepping their bounds with this TRex.

 

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos  4 Stars

How Do Dinosaurs Go to School? - Jane Yolen,Mark Teague

I love how Jane Yolen and Mark Teague used a dinosaur as their main character. Seeing a dinosaur in a school setting is not the ordinary, but in this book is fun and engaging to read about. The dinosaur tries to do just about everything a regular student would do in a school. The only difference is, he is a dinosaur. I can use this book in my classroom when back to school starts and I can show the students examples of school setting. Especially to the students who have never been to school before. 

RL: 1.9

LS: GRE

The Lost World
The Lost World: A Novel (Audio) - Michael Crichton,Scott Brick

Sequel to Jurassic Park. This audio version is also narrated by Scott Brick. Despite being streamed across Overdrive courtesy of the library, it was still broken up into CD sections and announced the change of CDs and repeated the last line of the previous CD section before continuing with the narration - overall, distracting.

 

I admittedly listened to this mostly while lying in my sick bed and didn't pay it the same close attention as I did the first one. I'm not sure if Scott Brick's individual character voices were less distinct in this adaptation or if I was not aware enough to pick out the subtle differences. As I am already biased in favor of the story, I only mentally docked a half star for the (perceived) performance.

 

One thing that occurs to me about the story in general though: is Sarah's father actually the vet, Dr. Harding, in the original Jurassic Park? And, if so, WTF, Malcolm? That one, seemingly inconsequential, teasing hint is still bugging me. Plot holes, plot holes...

Amazing
Weird Dinosaurs: The Strange New Fossils Challenging Everything We Thought We Knew - Philip J. Currie,John A. Pickrell

We’re in a golden age of discovery – and the fossils coming to light show dinosaurs were stranger, bigger, scarier and more diverse than we ever imagined.

From outback Australia to the Gobi Desert and the savanna of Madagascar, award-winning science writer John Pickrell sets out on a world tour of new discoveries and meets the fossil hunters leading the charge. Discover the dwarf dinosaurs unearthed by an eccentric Transylvanian baron, an aquatic, crocodile-snouted carnivore bigger than T. rex, the Chinese dinosaur with wings like a bat, and a Patagonian sauropod so enormous it was heavier than two commercial jet airliners.

Why did dinosaurs grow so huge? Did they all have feathers? And what do sauropods have in common with 1950s vacuum cleaners? Weird Dinosaurs examines the latest breakthroughs and new technologies radically transforming our understanding of the distant past.

My rating:4.5
What did I think
First off I want to say that this would have been a five star read for me if it had 2 things and they are:
1: how to say the dinosaur's name
2: the mean of said name.
Other than that I loved it ,but then again I love reading anything that talks about dinosaurs ,so if you love to read about them and learn about them then you need to pick this one up and add it to your collection, I know I will be , there was so much information about some.of the old ones and about new findings that made this book amazing to read. With that said I would love to say thinks to Netgalley for giving me a chance at reading this and for finding another amazing dinosaur book to add to my collection, in a change for my honest opinion which this is.can't wait for it to come.out to buy.

Jurassic Park
Jurassic Park: A Novel - -Brilliance Audio on CD Unabridged-,Michael Crichton,Scott Brick

Streamed this off Audible. This edition is 15:10:10 exactly and narrated by Scott Brick.

 

I love it. That's it. Scott Brick's voice is amazing and he maintains the individual voices of each character perfectly 99.9% of the time. (I can excuse that slip on Muldoon's dialogue in that one scene because the character was drunk at the time anyway; let's just chalk it up to method acting.)

 

Nedry's death scene in particular was extra chilling despite how many times I have reread this book in print.

 

5 stars, would listen again.
