Future Remains by Robert Jack is an action, adventure, time travel, terrifying fun book to read! I don't like many time travel books because they often forget certain aspects of time travel but this was so spot on. I loved this book for the varied people, the times (robot era and dinosaurs), the danger, and the exact time period he places them in. Wonderful! This is a non-stop pulse pounding book! It was great, I love dinosaurs, I just never grew up! ...more

Reading Future Remains was a little out of my usual genre—dinosaurs aren't really my thing, but right from the start I was drawn in by Robert Jack's writing. His prose is lively and vivid, and his characters grabbed me right from the start—sympathetic, but not mawkish. They were well drawn—deep enough to make me care, but not too heavy with backstory—in fact, the backstory, skillfully woven into the narrative, always left me anticipating new bits of information. I also have to say that his villa ...more

This book rocks and no profanity. Lots of action and suspense. Believable characters and a rolling plot. Time travel at its best. Definitely recommend. Running action to the end.

I took this book with me on a 2-day business trip & finished it! I couldn't wait to get back to the hotel & read further. I've read Michael Chrichton & Dean Koontz novels, this rates right up there with there's!
It's one of those books that you think about later, it was put together really well & beautifully written.
I will be looking for future books by this author, the way he writes has a way of allowing the reader to "see" what you're reading!
I don't think you have to enjoy a certain genre to

When we think of time travel stories quite a lot of times the characters in the story want to jump straight to the age of the dinosaurs. So typically there would be one group of well meaning and nice people and a second group of nasty and arrogant folks. Both get hunted, poetic justice is served and so on proceeds the story. This has repeated time and again in books, movies and other media avatars that originality has long since departed from these shores .

Robert Jack walks the same path and wh

Thrilling and fast paced, the breakneck read almost renders the adventure too slight. More detail and a little more time with some of the characters would not have been to the book's detriment.
That said, the book is well thought out, adventurous and compelling. An exciting, if well-worn premise, presented with aplomb and directness.
The villain of the piece turns a little too short sighted, pig headed and mustache-twirly for my sake. As is his comeuppance; while well deserved, it seems a little

Dinosaur-based fiction seems so sparse these days, so I was really grateful for this particular installment, taken with a lot of enthusiasm, to construct a prehistoric adventure-style story which also felt original and creative. The depiction of the world and some of the speculative behaviours of the animals (I was particularly delighted by the author's new take on raptors, differing from their Jurassic Park portrayal, but using informed speculation to make them possibly even more terrifying). T ...more

On a near future, Professor Erhardt Steiner is about to make the greatest announcement in science history... after spending his whole life seeking that goal, he finally managed to complete a fully functional time machine! Unfortunately his 12-year old son Emil decided to borrow the machine and go visit pre-historic times, because he loves dinosaurs (ahhh, those meddling kids!), so Erhardt and Sara his wife return from that glorious evening to a empty home, no kid, no machine, no Siobhan, the nan ...more

Recommends it for: dinosaur lovers
The story was fairly entertaining but nothing groundbreaking. Could not connect with any of the characters. Most of them are so snappy and cranky. Furthermore, it’s hard to feel invested in a story that centers heavily around rescuing a character I cannot sympathise with. Emil makes plenty of foolish decisions despite his mother touting him as being “smart for his age”. And for someone who just found out he really messed up (from making his parents spend 25 years searching for him, to having str ...more

What a great trip into the past!!

I found this book to be absolutely compelling! The plot has no moments that detract from the flow of edge of the seat adventures. Lovely descriptions of the setting and scary descriptions of the dinosaurs. The characters are sympathetic and make you root for them to succeed! I loved the ending! I really liked the robots! Mr Jack you are a really skilled writer! Send us more!
Real Surprise!

I bought this book on my Kindle, not expecting much, but in desperate need of a little Jurassic adventure. It more than surprised me,it wowed me!! I loved the characters, the story, the writer's way of telling his tale...all extremely well done and will be read again 10 years from know, just because I will want to! Thank you Mr. Jack for a wild and wonderful ride into the future, present, and past!

What a great book......

This is a different story about time travel. It really grabbed my attention and held it to the end. The characters are fully developed and you will luv some and hate a couple but that's alright. It has a bit of a slow start but once it starts moving it never slows down as it takes you on a crazy trip to the past. Lots of dinosaurs and action. Highly recommended.

I wanted to read something about humans and dinosaurs,and this novel by Robert Jack.....was awesome.I could not read enough,each day,and never wanted to stop. The way it comes to the end of the story, was well worth every moment spent reading.

Appealing bloodbath

I will be looking for more from this author. Good, but not excellent, character development, great story, okay villain, and good ending. This is someone to watch.

It is a good read.

It was a different book to read and they keep you wondering what will happen next. It leaves you wondering how you could mess up the future, but they don't bring it up.

An extremely entertaining read!

I chose a five star because I was unable to put this one down. Read it straight through. Full of suspense and lots of action! I would recommend this little gem to any who love the Jurassic Park movies

Good Book

Kept my interest. It was hard to put down. Time machine and Dinosaurs makes for a good story. I don't like feathered dinosaurs that kept my rating 4 stars instead of 5.
Wendi Leigh Wells
An easy, exciting read.

Action packed and quick reading. The combination of past, present and future navigated quite well. The ending was not predictable but was likeable

Future remains

Good story. Would recommend to Dino lovers. The author did a pretty good job with the idea. I would read another of his books
I really loved this dino story!

It was scary and original! I know that the author said some of the Dino facts where changed but honestly it was far closer to the truth to me, especially when I looked up some of the Dinos on Wikipedia.. I never knew raptors looked like birds and not lizards and the descriptions of them in here are scary! Esp the mimic...creepy! I don’t know if they really do that. It was a good mystery although not sure what happened to Barlowe I think his name was.. maybe raptors
