Help! Dinosaurs have invaded my reality.
le 5 décembre 2012 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Two things I really enjoy reading about are zombies and dinosaurs. Classics like "The Lost World" and "Jurassic Park" are fantastic and now I can add James F. David's tale of dinosaurs roaming the modern world. "Footprints of Thunder", as well as the sequel "Thunder of Time" is an original tale of time travel and adventure in which the very fabric of our world is thrown into disarray when pockets of our prehistoric past collide with our modern day reality. The result? Dinosaurs now roam the earth! From a family lost at sea only to be helped by an unlikely creature that has stepped out of time's past to prehistoric monsters walking the streets of New York, this novel has it all. It's an original idea brought to life in vivid words that the author uses to weave the story that both terrified me and made me smile at the same time. This book is written with a lot of heart for the characters and it shows. A good read!

Does a foot "print" make noise?
le 11 avril 2005 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Let me apologize ahead of time. I must have read a different book from most of the previous reviewers. It has the same title and even some of the same action, but I missed the majority of what the other reviewers read. I will agree that the action is good when it is good. I will agree that the book has a great premise. But when the back cover blurb compares it to "a classic end-of -the-world novel in the tradition of Lucifer's Hammer",ARGHHHHH! (That's dinosaursese for "PU-lease!) About the only comparison I could find was the "dramatic personae" listing. This story has WAY to many characters and none as richly developed as Harvey, Tim, Maureen or Arthur. The time quilting premise is novel, although the explanation of the origins are a little fuzzy. The "fix" is worse than an angora ranch. What was the deal with "the group"? How did the moon and the future, etc. work it's way into the relevance of the story? Did the President's science advisor ever get anywhere with his theories? The cruise missiles fly, but what happened? Did the plan work? Was the science advisor right or wrong? Which science advisor had the correct theory? What happened to the Willamette, and so on? Did Atlanta cease its flux? There are way to many loose ends in this story. I realize that not everything has to be all nicely wrapped up at the end, but dang, there were more starts and stops than rush hour traffic! What happened to Kenny? Terry and Bill's excellent adventure to D.C., Huh? Let's go into a forest and explore and then when a T.Rex comes by and eats a few idiots, lets not get the hell out of here! The whole moon theory that just kind of lies there. The ending with Petra and Colter and the burying of notes, etc, I just didn't get the explanation. The sequence with the sailing family was great. The novel could have been so much better! I guess that's what editors are for. Compress the character list, snip off some extraneous story lines (the whole Hawaiian connection) and you have a leaner, meaner plot line. By the way, there was zero mention of what happened to the quilted areas that were shifted into the past. That could have been a great parallel story line. And just to be one, did you notice the footprints on the cover. I didn't realize that dinos hopped around leaving side-by-side footprints. Maybe it's just me. The moral of the story is be sure to have plenty of sugar on hand for any guests that might wander by, and oh, watch out for street gangs, I've read that they can be hazardous to your health.
Started out great

I have read all of the Footprints books. I really really liked the first one. But with each one, the plot got more and more strange. I ended up not finishing the last one. To much sci-tech and not enough down to earth stuff that normal people like me could understand. Jut got to far out there for my taste. Don't know how I would have explained the quilting, but I don't think it would have been that way.
Yes, the science is a little over the top ...

Yes, the science is a little over the top and far from realistic. This tech is not just around the corner. But the story line is entertaining and original.
Wanted this to be good..

...but it simply wasn't. Not only did the author choose one of the least swallowable plots I've come across in the past many years, but he tried to present it in about 1/2 the number of pages it would have needed to be meaningful. Too many characters, too many shifts in perspective, too many sub-plots, and very little satisfyingly wrapped up. There were a few bright points - Granny and her pet dinosaur were cute and diverting, for instance, and some of the other characters were amusingly drawn - but these are not enough for me to recommend the book.
