Finished this today on a busride back from New York City. It was an engrossing and a quick read but I found it a bit lacking. The story idea was very interesting and I found myself reading just to find out what happens. The pacing is a trifle slow, but that is forgivable since it is setting up the basis for the rest of the series. My main problem with the book was a very small one, but it bugged me because of my biological background. It was the biological infeasiblity of large lizards dominating the ecosystem of the Americas while still having a rather large population of mammals--both small rodents and buffalo. But it was a very personal nitpick and probably would not bother anyone else. It was a very interesting look at what if's and I already own the second book so I will read it.
