    It's been awhile since I've read a kick-ass action/adventure, let alone a kick-ass dinosaur thriller. I tore through this like a T-Rex going after an afternoon snack - which in this case, is a group of Denver city folk who get zapped back to the time of the dinosaurs and have to figure out how to get home without getting smushed, stomped, or otherwise gobbled up. Solid, believable character ensemble, smart sci-fi that's not too geeky, and amazing set pieces and chase scenes that just scream out [...]

    I enjoyed this very much. There was only one disappointment, the "villian's" (because even in a book where dinosaurs are killing you, there has to be a bad person too, I'm not complaining, it was a good story line) ending was very anticlimactic, and I was hoping much worse was in store for him.

    Very good action packed thrilling novel. Couldn't put the book down! The idea of people in a cafe disappearing back in time to the age of the dinosaurs appealed to me and I thought I would give the book a try. Great job on the character development and their interactions with each other. Found myself disliking one character immensely which is the sign of a good writer who can evoke the reader's emotions. The author brings the book to life and one goes along with the fictional characters on the r [...]

    Ever since they were first described in 1815, dinosaurs have fascinated and enchanted almost everyone. They were so different to anything living today that we all wished we could travel back in time to see them. The reality is, even if we could, our fascination would give way to terror pretty quickly. The prehistoric world was a pretty violent place.Like most kids, I certainly became spellbound by palaeontology and have maintained a keen interest ever since. I just love any dino-related fiction, [...]

    It might not be saying much in its favor, but The Dinosaur Four isn't the worst time travel/dinosaur tale I've read. The opening drags, the minimalist environmental description makes envisioning the Cretaceous world difficult, and we spend way too much time in the perverted mind of a particularly odious character, just to name a few issues, but the dinosaurs are fairly up-to-date and the latter half of the story moves pretty fast. If you need a dinosaur yarn to pass a few hours on a plane, you c [...]

    Well done!Well paced, written, and edited, "The Dinosaur Four" is a fantastic read. A twisted tale of disastrous accidental time travel back to when dinosaurs ruled the earth, and 15 hours later back to the future again. In a landscape full of territorial herbivorous and carnivorous giants, how long do you think YOU would survive? Highly recommended!

    This was a surprising fun read. The book is quite short, but manages to move along at a nice pace. It's essentially the classic adventure / survival tale, with a bit of time travel thrown in for flavor, and manages to answer its own time travel questions at the end.On the whole, a quick, enjoyable read.

    This book is part of the Kindle Unlimited library. Reading free books can be a really mixed bag. Some of the books are okay and most are blasé. Part of me feels really bad about reading a book and then shredding it to pieces in the review but then I feel that I have to be completely honest about what I think and why I think that way. So here it goes. Note: there will be spoilers.Readability: Honestly, this book was a little hard to stick with. Descriptions of scenery were confusing and not very [...]

    This was such a fun and entertaining read. I thoroughly enjoyed it!! The story follows a group of people who are in a coffee shop and get transported back to the age of the Dinosaurs. Just how and why, is something they have to figure out while trying to survive in a world where everything seems to want to eat you. The plot of this, while completely unbelievable, was so much fun. Imagine going for coffee only to exit and you are in a different age, one where the animals will stomp on you or eat [...]

    This story falls firmly into the category of brain popcorn. A group of people in a café become collateral damage when a time machine goes off directly above their heads. From a sunny and beautiful day in Denver, CO they are transported to a prehistoric landscape with them having no idea of how they got there. The rest is typical survival drama.The dinosaurs are all pretty well depicted and relatively up to date. These are not the dinosaurs of Michael Crichton/Stan Winston, they are feathered an [...]

    The Dinosaur Four is a great book about time travel, survival, dinosaurs and people behaviours. While few first pages of the book seem to last forever, introducing the story slowly and idyllically, the rest of the book is keeping the reader alert. The biggest asset of the story is that the author really shows what every character is thinking and why they are making specific decisions. The whole plot seems logical. I was suprised by the truth shown in dangerous moments of the story as well. There [...]

    Part of a coffee shop, on the first floor of a building in Denver, along with the floor lying directly above the part of the coffee shop, is transported back in time to the late Cretaceous period. Those in the coffee shop at the time, had to figure out how to survive. They also needed to discover how to get back home. Any more information would reveal too much. Some characters were reasonably well developed and others weren't. The action was, at times, not so well developed. Some scenes were ver [...]

    I don't expect a lot from these dinosaur/prehistoric creature books, based on bad previous reads. But I still read them, because they're amusing for a short amount of time. (I can amuse myself by yelling at characters in my head.)Surprisingly, this book was not only entertaining but the characters weren't infuriating. Well, I should amend that - their actions didn't seem utterly ridiculous in the face of what they were experiencing. My first impression was that the characters were acting real. D [...]

    A fun, thrilling read with plenty of action. This would make a great summer popcorn movie on SyFy. A group of people in a café are transported back in time to an era when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Enter survival mode as the group tries to sort out the best way to remain alive-- especially when they become the favored prey of a hungry Tyrannosaurs Rex. But it isn’t just the T-Rex that’s the problem. There are plenty of dinosaurs here, each presenting its own unique danger. Toss in the usua [...]

    I had my doubts about this book when I picked it up for free on Kindle, but I really enjoyed it. It's about a group of ten people, mostly strangers to one another, who enter a Denver coffee shop and are somehow transported back in time to a land of dinosaurs. The author's descriptions of the setting and the dinosaurs are very realistic. The ensemble cast is diverse and the characters well developed. They are not standard stock character types, but real people with strengths and weaknesses. There [...]

    I liked it. It was fast, different and original. 10 people are in a coffee shop when suddenly, a loud ticking occurs, and then a pop. We find out that part of the shop has been transported back to the dinosaur area. The book occurs in a 15 hour period. We discover that some geniuses on the second story of the building invented a time machine, that goes off before they had planned. It is set to return in 15 hours. During this time period, the people are introduced to several dinosaurs, some okay [...]

    Poor descriptions, stilted dialogue, mostly unlikable characters, an unimpressive opening, and a supremely disappointing ending. The dinosaurs, by virtue of not being POV characters, are the best written part of this. When the dialogue and character thoughts aren't stilted they're just repetitive.I'll give the author one thing, he is really good at making some of these characters unlikable. Al is a creepy goon and fills in the "man is the real monster" part of the story.I paid a dollar for this [...]

    Excellent!I did not want to put this book down. It was engrossing from the first and never failed to keep up the pace. Unexpected ending, but made complete sense not easy with a story about time travel and all that can possibly go wrong with that technology.If you love dinosaurs and enjoyed Jurassic Park, you'll love this updated version of humans/dinosaur interactions.Awesome overall!

    I wasn't expecting this to be up to much. It's advertised by the author as a 'B-movie' novel, and he's been promoting it to death for a couple of years.What's great is that it is what it says it is. I like that honesty. You signed up for a B-movie novel, you get a B-movie novel. It is unpretentious, but quite well-written. The plot keeps you going nicely, and chapters finish on page-turning events. The characters have their flaws and hidden motives, so there's plenty of conflict and tension. The [...]

    This was really good. I mean really, really good. It was worth staying up for and losing sleep. I really hope the author has another story to tell because I enjoyed this one so much.The characters are slowly shaped just as they are shaped before the eyes of their companions. This is very well written.

    It all happens so fast. Ten people in a coffee shop, going through their morning routine. Then a ticking sound. Tick. Tick. Tick. Tick. Tick.And all of a sudden the group of strangers find themselves and the coffee shop at the end of the Cretaceous, on a prehistoric riverbank.From there, author Geoff Jones puts his characters through the wringer, as they struggle to comprehend what happened to them and why, while dealing with injuries and dinosaur attacks.First, there’s Edmontosaurus, a deadly [...]

    It was only 30 minutes or so into “The Dinosaur 4” that I began to compare this fun audiobook to the various “creature features” available on any given weekend on the SyFy Channel. Whether it is Megladon vs Mecha-Shark or Sharknado, there is an inherent joy to be found in a little escapism mixed with the blood of characters that were too slow to get out of the way of something with rediciously large teeth. Especially so when it is well done within these mainly low-budget movies. Dinosaur [...]

    This was a fun ride. It was a short, entertaining page turner that kept my interest with it's quick pacing and the brief life spans of its characters. I wasn't sure what to expect but was happily surprised to find that it was cleanly edited and written in a style that was easy to read. My criticisms are slight and may not bother other readers. The book begins with a lot of characters and I wasn't sure I needed to be inside the heads of as many of them as I was. (also was surprised to hear what t [...]

    As other users have noted, inconsistent descriptions make the characters, settings, scenario, and action hard to imagine/follow. The scenes become repetitious and forced, as if the characters have read the script and are just killing time till the ending. The author views the word 'off' as a lonely creature, needlessly and incoherently appending 'of' to it as if to help (which is to say, there are some proofreading issues). But the most egregious sin is that the character deaths, and the overall [...]

    The Dinosaur Four by Geoff Jones starts as innocuously as possible in a coffee shop during morning trade. When a loud ticking sound starts up, followed by the chunk of building housing the café being transported 67 million years into the past, those unfortunate enough to be within face what few could even imagine: survival during the time of the dinosaurs.What we have here is a novel that combines action, intrigue, and the examination of the human psyche, all tied up in what could easily be a B [...]

    5 Stars (June 2014) but it deserves 10!The Dinosaur Fouramazon/The-Dinosaur-FoWhen I received this book review request in my inbox, I was a little hesitant about reading it. One reason was that the author described it to me as a ‘Stephen King-style sci-fi thriller’, sorry that’s an immediate red-flag for me, I’m an SK purist, and no one can do his ‘style’. My second concern was the book blurb on , it just didn’t grab my attention. However, I plowed forward with it, and this is how [...]

    This review is for the AUDIOBOOK version of this book.This Audiobook was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.A small coffee shop is suddenly transported back in time to the Cretaceous Period, now a group of strangers must work together in order to survive and maybe even get back home.From the beginning this book is a non-stop action thriller, delivering plenty of dinosaur action and gruesomely detailed deaths, so don't get too attached to any one character, and p [...]

    The Dinosaur Four is an adventure in style of those horror/sci-fi movies from the 70s and 80s that I love. Movies like Alien or The Thing. Movies that are rated 'R' (not PG-13). Movies that create a sense of realism despite their fantastic premises.Like those movies, The Dinosaur Four makes you think to yourself: That makes sense. That's what I would do. It takes its premise of Time Travel seriously without getting bogged down. The story is smart and fast-paced. The characters are interesting an [...]
