Review of 'Dinosaur Summer'

Dinosaur Summer by Greg Bear

A great “boy's own” novel about a young man who gets involved with the return of dinosaurs from the last dinosaur circus to their home on the plateau of El Grande in Venezuela. This is an alternate world where dinosaurs were found during the late 1800s and now, in 1947, the dinosaurs have lost their appeal leading to Lothar Gluck to close his famous circus. <p>It is a fairly slow moving novel up until they actually arrive at the plateau and, of course, it does not go according to plan…otherwise, short novel. A great read but I must admit that I never really got into the characters but it really does capture the style of the writing of the time and has it's fair amount of action.</p>
