Read from August 15 to 20, 2011

As I said earlier, the plot wasn't anything spectacular. Cowboys and dinosaurs sounds like a cool concept except the main character spent most of his narration telling you how something happened only to then tell you "Oh actually it happened this way." For a former cop, he only remembers to be on once a dead guy is found and only then he does it in a half-assed manner. The paleontology parts would be interesting if they didn't seem so contrived and the ending was complete with a Jaws moment where a 65 million year old T-rex skull pops out of the mud to save the day teeth and all.
