In an Antarctic research outpost, a group of scientists made a discovery. For the first time, modern man would come face-to-face with the ruler of the prehistoric world, the king of the dinosaurs--the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

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 LOVE creature features in isolated places, you get something like Shakma where the movie could be intense but the characters are morons who don't know how to open a window or call the cops. In the isolated type story such as this they have a plane, OF COURSE they want to capture the

Wow -- this is one of those books that makes me wonder how it got published in its current form. The book reads like an unedited (or maybe roughly edited) Nanowrimo novel. The plot is rough, full of holes and completely implausable. If you are fan of the 1950s monster movie, then this is the book for you.

There are so many plot holes, you can easily imagine other characters coming in: Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jurassic Park) warning everyone about T Rex behavior and/or ranting about chaos theory; Dirk Pi

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! I could have forgiven that if there was the slightest evidence of wit of style but the writing is crude to say the least. 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

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.

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

I really wanted to like this book but it just fell short. Basically its the same kill scenes over and over and over. Half way through the book i found myself bored and thats weird because im a nerd for creature themed horror novels. It seemed immature and lacked certain character traits that would of kept it interesting.
