Publisher's Summary

First came the time-storm, which erased half the population. Then came the Dinosaur Apocalypse...

How did it all begin? That depends on where you were and who you ask. In some places it started with the weather - which quickly became unstable and began behaving in impossible ways. In still others it started with the lights in the sky, which shifted and pulsed and could not be explained. Elsewhere it started with the disappearances: One here, a few there, but increasing in occurrence until fully three quarters of the population had vanished. Either way, there is one thing on which everyone agrees - it didn’t take long for the prehistoric flora and fauna to start showing up (often appearing right where someone was standing, in which case the two were fused, spliced, amalgamated). It didn’t take long for the great time-displacement called the Flashback - which was brief but had aftershocks, like an earthquake - to change the face of the Earth. Nor for the stories, some long and others short, some from before the maelstrom (and resulting societal collapse) and others after, to be recorded.

Collected herein are the stories in which love mattered.

Title is a bit misleading

First off, this story is pretty well written and narrated, though the British accent for mostly American characters was occasionally odd. Not bad, the quality was good, just odd.

Story wise there is a lot of mystery about what is going on, and zero direct answers. Again not bad, just so long as you like that.
These are several short stories that are loosely tied together by all being after an apocalypse. I would have liked to have had a little bit more of a connection, but that's me. Characters are believable for the situations that they are in, so that is good.

About the title; these are not love stories, except maybe the last one. Most of them are very nihilistic, and none of them have much joy or hope, except maybe the last one, kinda. It did leave me thinking about it, and I am left wondering about the mysteries behind it all, but if you were in that situation you wouldn't know anything more, so it works that way.

One thing that negatively colored my opinion early on was bringing politics into it in a jarring way, but thankfully it wasn't a running theme.

I did receive this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Love in the Age of Reptiles

there are several stories that sorry of merge together. it's the story of humanity's will to live even in the face of adversity. The listener learns about how different individuals hold on to love it but as adversity becomes suffocating.
Helen Rule is a wonderful narrator as she leaf us through these stories.
Fantastic audio and stories.

Cool Concept

As is typical with a story collection, I enjoyed some more than others. Overall, the concept of having dinosaurs re-introduced to the modern world makes for some creative situations.

The narrator skilled but not a great fit for this particular title. The stories seem to take place in the United States, yet she has a British accent.
