Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 8^-12. An irresistible blending of dinosaur lore, future science, and nonstop action make this a first-rate, very scary thriller. And the dinos return in Crichton's The Lost World (1995)."
From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bioengineers clone 15 species of dinosaurs and establish an island preserve where tourists can view the large reptiles; chaos ensues when a rival genetics firm attempts to steal frozen dinosaur embryos, and it's up to two kids, a safari guide and a paleontologist to set things right. PW called this, ``A scary, creepy, mesmerizing technothriller with teeth.'' (Dec.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
