Publisher's Summary

Jason’s lifelong dream was to study history at the prestigious University of Cambridge in England. But when portals started opening all over the world and thousands of hungry dinosaurs began to pour out of them, Jason suddenly regrets being in a country without guns. 

With the London police outnumbered, and the British military outgunned, it will be up to Jason to protect his two beautiful girlfriends from being eaten by prehistoric beasts. Together, the three of them will need to learn how to survive in a world that now belongs to the dinosaurs. 

Disclaimer: Like most of my books, this series contains descriptive love-making scenes with multiple women, horrific violence, and other mature themes.

Doesn't disappoint much if you don't expect much

Dinosaur World is not impressive. To be fair I didn’t really expect otherwise, but I’d hoped to be pleasantly surprised after reading the glowing reviews of this novel.

Not badly written, Dinosaur World is simply too juvenile to be good. Beginning with the ridiculous contrivance of having all three main characters—all strangers to each other—completely alone on campus and yet conveniently very near one another in the same part of the same chamber of the same floor of the same building at virtually the same time that three ravenous dinosaurs appear in—yes—the same place, nothing really improves. Is it impossible to imagine that these three could conveniently be near each other when the portals begin opening? Not if there had actually been any other people on campus. At all. Granted, it's the beginning of a break, but there should still be a few people around elsewhere. Turns out, however, that the only other person in the entire building was conveniently (and silently, it seems) eaten before Jason even notices his soon-to-be bedmates and the trio will cross campus multiple times over the next days without seeing anyone else at Cambridge. Ever.

And isn’t it equally ridiculous that the only other two students remaining on campus are unbelievably beautiful girls? Okay, I’m not actually going to complain about that, having truly enjoying Jacobs’ delicious descriptions of his leading ladies, but this, in fact, points up the real problem. While I’d like to think Jacobs hasn’t exhausted his imagination in producing his premise, his stunningly beautiful main ladies, and the highly detailed, lengthy sex scenes, he doesn’t seem inclined to exercise this other tool anywhere else. He jumps smoothly from bottom-rung Scholastic writing to Penthouse Letters and back without even a nod at all to the things he’s overlooking.

For example, even off campus other people are virtually non-existent in this book, only appearing few and far between, and only when needed. For example, the man who briefly contests our protagonists’ right to take his car, only to be immediately whisked away by a pterodactyl. And the smallish crowd that have gathered to loot a neighborhood market watch the well armed and well prepared trio walk away without any suggestion to—well, anything, really. No team ups? No right to rule? No “who are you and where did you come from?” Not even a “Do you know what is going on?” Nothing more than a weak “aren’t they taking a lot of food?” Why not? Can it only be that Jacobs doesn’t want Jason to have to share his ladies’ affections?

And where is the carnage, by the way? Aside from a little raptor blood and a few dead dinos, we see virtually no evidence of the bloody Jurassic Park style take-over. Anywhere. When the trio conveniently finds a stalled truck on the street, with a .308 rifle and fifteen rounds of ammunition, not even a bloody streak is left to hint what has happened to the driver. And what little Jacobs gives us, a few scents, bullet holes, and did I say blood already, is never describe with anything even remotely approaching the rapt attention he gives to his one big sex scene--which covers the better part of an entire chapter..

None of this, of course, means that Logan Jacobs is a horrible writer. I still like the premise as well as some of the dialogue, his settings and the few things he chooses to describe are described well enough, and his characters do think (somewhat), apply logic, and make some rational decisions. Jacobs simply hasn’t challenged himself to be a good writer, content to earn five stars and a basic income from his fan base of overstimulated fifteen-year-olds.

Nor do the voice actors sound at all impressive. With the world collapsing around them, there is seldom a hint of frustration, desperation, or much of anything.

Return of the Dinosaurs

Stuck in school for the Summer, Jason just wants to do a bit of Studying in the Cambridge library. But when Dinosaurs arrive in the present, you make allowances for a bit of ruckus, especially if it means being a hero for two beautiful women. Jurassic Park meets Survivorman with a dash of Threes Company in England in this first installment of what I'm sure will be a long running series. Lots of fun, lots of excitement and a whole lot of dinosaurs. Incredible Dual Narration, I have got to find some more books these guys have done. Also, Thank you Logan Jacobs for not using Katanas like everyone else seems to do. Seriously.

Wow just wow

Ok so I feel your on a roll Logan Jacobs, I’ve now bought and listened to most of all your books on audible you and Eric vall are my go to favorites. That being said I don’t know what it was but some of the first books just seemed to lack just a little something each was different so I couldn’t really pin point it but Good lord! Souls gem collector was the first I noticed just seemed to be above the rest I absolutely loved it it easily became one of my top 5 favorite series of all the authors I listen to and titles I own over like 300 on audible. But Dinosaur World blew it out of the park I can’t get enough I’ve already listened to the book twice. I can’t wait for the next! Keep up the fantastic work!

Great Book

I chose this book because it was an Actors Everywhere production. I have loved all of the books Alex and Marissa have done so chose it on that face alone. I wasn't disappointed. Can't wait for the next book. Not a worked over storyline so is fresh and interesting. like so many others you don't know what is next on every page.

Story is good but.

The female narration is awful, they make one of the characters sound like she had a stroke and can’t talk properly (she is foreign and her English isn’t supposed to be great but doesn’t mean she needs to be narrated poorly) male narrator does good, and story is fun and full of dinos, only real complaint would be the MC kind of sounds like he is playing a game with everyone being NPCs waiting for dialogue choices and giving quests and not really having there own characters.
But I like this and it’s a rare dinosaur book and can’t wait for more!

Another great story by Logan Jacobs. Alex Perone and Marissa Parness did an excellent job with the narration.

Amazing Story

This book is amazing, and the audiobook only added to the story. The voices of the characters are very well done and I can't wait for the next book.

Ok story, great performance

The story was only alright. Though it was an interesting survival novel. The main characters are decent human beings which is refreshing. Though at times I found myself thinking "how could you be that dumb".

The narrators were absolutely on point! Great performance and I will be looking for additional books narrated by them.

Overall, decent and worth a listen if you want something that you don't have to think too hard on, but still be entertained.

enjoyable story.

It is a good story of its kind. Sometimes the MC's are a bit stupid, for example they spend a time worrying about what they will do when the internet goes down but the story started in a major university library. I enjoyed the narration, but the accent for the Korean character is never quite right. It tends to drift between Korean and stereotypical Japanese with the occasional southern US popping up.

A good storyline

I started this to feel in some time between books. Didn’t expect much but I was pleasantly surprised. I must say the storyline could be possible and could happen. The interaction between the characters flowed well which makes it a great story and really makes you want to know what happens next.
The narrators do an excellent job of bringing the story to life. What caught my attention was the difference between the two females. The accents were pretty good. So well done!
5*
