While on the subject of page turners, re: my last post ‘Book Junk Food’, I feel compelled to mention another fun, page-turny series concerning the wonderful world of weirdness in story-telling.
I don’t even really know how to describe the series from James F. David, but I’ll give it a whirl….The series starts with “Footprints of Thunder”, which concentrates on large portions of the Cretaceous Period ending up switching places with present day Earthly locations, complete with man-eating dinos with large teeth, and how people cope with this bizarro situation, then onto the second book, “Thunder of Time”, where there is mind-bendy stuff going on with strange energy gathering pyramids that invoke time jumping to ancient Mayan civilization, where sacrificial rituals are going on(eek!), to alternate time scenarios, to hanging out on the moon with a few more dino predators, and crazy people, too…very fun read! (my fave of the three, btw). The last, “Dinosaur Thunder”, completes the series with more time travel through mysterious portals, and a fast paced race to escape the dino extinction asteroid before time is altered FOREVERMORE! dun, dun, dun! lol Throw in a little “past-life on Mars excursion”, and voila! Perfect, delicious, escapism.
I loved every one of them. Read them fast. More “book junk food”. “Far-fetched”(duh…hahaha), imaginative, fascinating, and SO FUN to read!
