An Antarctic research team hoping to study microbial organisms in an underground lake discovers something far more amazing: perfectly preserved dinosaur corpses. After one thaws and wakes ravenously hungry, it becomes apparent that death, like life, will find a way. Environmental activist Alex Ramirez, son of the expedition’s paleontologist, came to Antarctica to defend the organisms from extinction, but soon learns that it is the human race that needs protecting.
You have to take this book for what it is and not expect a whole lot from it. It would make a great syfy horror movie…lol.
What I thought of this book.
Okay, yeah. Somebody went there…zombie dinosaur. 🙂
So Alex is an environmentalist and he is up in the Antarctica…where of course all things scary always seem to come from. There are some organisms that he is trying to save but what they find is something way all together different. His father is a paleontologist who is there to uncover what ever is there while Alex is there to protest what is going on.
Alex knows that something is not right with the frozen dinosaur they found but nobody will listen to him. Then when they were trying to transfer it to take with them, the dino opens it’s eyes and bites off Marcus’s hand (Alex’s father).
So now they have this thing on a ship, and things are not going well. They are monitoring Alex’s father because he was bit and something bad happens to the captain. Those that are on the ship are not real nice people and Veronica who is a CIA operative trying to find out more information on one of the guys gets a bit more than she bargained for as she is now on the ship with them. They think she is a medic.
The bad guy (and I can’t recall his name) is a crazy scientist who thinks he can take the dino organism and figure out how to make himself like a zombie, but without the wild crazy need to feed. He would just have the brute strength. Yeah, it’s crazy!
Jurassic Dead has a lot of zombie gore and there is more than just dino zombies as solider start getting bit and then Marcus goes all zombie. I love how their eyes turn all weird like the dinos eyes. This is just one of those books where you have to suspend your belief, set back and enjoy the action and have a bit of a laugh out the outrageous story of zombie Dinosaurs. 🙂
This is the first time I have listened to the Narrations of Andrew Tell, and I really enjoyed it. He has a great voice for this type of book. It was very commanding and helped me enjoy the book more than if I just read it. His female voices wasn’t real bad either.
