Ok - lets see what you all reckon - I gotta go for ;
1. The Land that Time Forgot - Edgar Rice Burroughs
Great old school adventure yarn with T-Rex, dinosaur eggs and ice age men, and german u-boats!
2. The Banshee Engine - Harry J Jones
A cracking fast paced short story about when the dinosaurs return to modern day and wipe out the entire human race. No messing here, straight to the action.
3. Bones of the Earth by Michael Swanwick
Great stuff. Modern tech vs dinosaurs. No more needs be said.
4. Jurassic Park - we all know and love
5. Dinosaur Planet - Anne McCaffrey.
Let me know your thoughts! Kept it to 5 to cause some arguments :)
Easy. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton for me.
"Part of the journey is the end..."
Although I can’t say I’ve read many dinosaur books.
“Banana oil.”- George Takei, Gigantis: The Fire Monster
Hey I was going to say Jurassic Park but then my PC took an arrow to the knee
The top 2 are Crichton's Jurassic Park and The Lost World, full stop.
Dragon Teeth may or may not be considered a "sci-fi" novel, but according to Crichton's letters, he always considered it to be the prequel to his "other dinosaur book".
I've read only Dinosaur Planet by Anne McCaffrey from this top list. However, I have 56 sci-fi and fantasy books about dinosaurs on my list. One of my favorite: Of Ants and Dinosaurs by Liu Cixin. Only 7 are left to read from this list: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/22548.dinosaur_fantasy_and_science_fiction-by-essay writer
