Beyond Nathan's naivety and clumsiness, a gentleman adventurer would not be a suitable career for anyone. There was no future in it. Men like Richard Francis Burton, Henry Morton Stanley and my own father had been the great heroes of a previous age, one that had vanished with the advent of the radio, the automobile, and the airplane - and with the horrors of the World War. I remain, of course - one of the last of the gentleman adventurer in a changing worl

I absolutely loved this novel. It had me as soon as I saw the title and the cover. The summary was just an added bonus because as soon as I saw it I requested it from NetGalley. How could I not? It's no secret that I have a minor major obsession with dinosaurs, prehistoric beasts, and hominids and have been since I was a little kid.

Dinosaur Jazz had everything I could ask for. It was as though I were reading a mash up of an Indiana Jones novel, The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Tarzan

*Pulp Warning* My ereading pretty much revolves solely around epulp. My reviews are thus skewed. Reader beware :) *Pulp Warning*

Overall score: 4 stars (Recommended)

This is a story about Jazz Age dinosaurs. And whacky people who spend lots of time within close proximity to said Jazz Age dinosaurs.

If that doesn't excite you then check your pulse.

This is a fantastic read about a world that anyone with an adventurous bone in their body should want to visit. It's pulp at its pulpiest with genre smash

This book had an interesting concept. It is not something I normally would have read but it was somewhat enjoyable. My favorite character was Clara.
