Something simple I read to report on in high school. As I recall, I don't remember it being bad. Just a nice read and easy to follow.
Remember those stories you and your friends would make up when you were ten years old? The ones that always involved giant dinosaurs coming to life and eating everybody you hated (especially your teachers at school, your parents, the annoying kid down the street, etc...)? Remember how you grew up and forgot all about those kinds of stories now that you had discovered sex, driving and alcohol (hopefully not all in the same night)? Well, Leigh Clark didn't forget and the result is Carnivore.

I didn't expect this book to be great but I was unprepared for how awful it was. The 'science' makes Jurassic Park look like a documentary. For example: radiation apparently makes dinosaurs not only hatch but grow to adulthood in about three days!

The characters are mere stick men, the token woman expert is whiny and over-sentimental and the plot just goes into a loop of endl...more

Awesome! Jurassic park meets the thing! A lot of fun! This could easily be a summer blockbuster! Pulpy popcorn fun!
