    One thought on “Smilodon”

    1. I am a total sucker for a great cover. This one dug its fangs in, the blurb sunk them deeper, and the writing locked Smilodon’s jaws to hold my attention until I reached the high-octane ending. Again, WOW! Cougars are one of my favorite animals, and big cats in general are just plain awesome, but the thought of the big cat in this book loose in wilderness is downright chilling. Nayes’ descriptions brought the scenes alive in my head and raised the hair on the nape of my neck at times. Lastly [...]

    2. Once again, I'm wading against the tide.I got this story because I'm still looking for books to fill my Crichton void, and I do love me some giant animals eating people stories, and this one had a lot of good reviews at . It was okay, but it never really got me. It took until 20% through the story for me to feel like it really got started.Now, I like the movie JAWS, but I felt like a lot of elements in this story were just pulled from that, moved inland and changed into a giant cat. This might n [...]

    3. This wasokay, in the way that mindless explodey popcorn movies are okay. It's a cliché storm. This is the type of book you might enjoy if you were suffering through a long layover and felt brain dead, or if you were trapped in an elevator alone and you'd tired of reading the buttons. Or if you're a guy--not to insult men and their tastes, but this book was clearly geared toward men, and a particular brand of men, at that. There are detailed lists of what type of gun each character is toting, as [...]

    4. Fun readWell-written and believable. Well defined characters. Smilodon is one scary kitty! You won't be disappointed! Take a look at it!

    5. This is my kind of book! If the language was PG I could've given it 5 stars. But overall I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't as predictable as I thought it would be, although when doesn't the "bad" guy get what's "due" him in the end & the "hero" do heroic things. But I liked the main character, Jason & that the author didn't feel the need to put him & Norah, in a "relationship" but kept it a friendly attraction. It flowed great from chapter to chapter. And unlike some other review [...]

    6. I'm into odd books, so that might explain the high rating. This book involves a living fossil and the typical back country hunt for it. I love the tracking sections of the book. It reminds me of James Byron Huggins book Hunter. If you like environmental arguments, back country survival, tracking, and hunting, then you'll love this book. Jaws is in the mountains.

    7. I love a book about monsters, especially pre-historic, and the hunt to kill them or try to capture them. This book did not disappoint. Lots of action and flawed characters trying to do their best, or some of them anyway. Enjoyed this read very much.

    8. Meh. Two stars for the attempt to give characters some depth. But the writing was clunky and got in the way at times - e.g. "He radioed their position on the radio." Plus I think lots of missed opportunities to scare us with this big cat. C'mon Mr. Nayes, it seems you can do better.

    9. Oh I dearly love a book prehistoric animals fast forwarded, to current time. The subject is awesome, and I do appreciate the authors work. Three stars for all the animals who are the stars of the book, the humans were a bit stilted and boring.

    10. An excellent medium paced book that is well written & kept me guessing. The story is believable, & neither it nor the characters are overly complex so you can focus on all of the good stuff. Never a dull moment either, & I would highly recommend it.

    11. Excellent book about a sabre tooth tiger on the lose. I enjoyed this book. I thought it was bloody enough. I know some say not enough blood, gut, gore.This is a new genre for me. I loved this story.

    12. If you liked Jurassic Park, you should enjoy this book. It can hold your attention and tell a good story of how a meteor crashing in Russia can effect a future in the US. Be ready for a page turner.

    13. Smilodon delivers a believable resurrection of a prehistoric foe coupled with the insidious blindness of human greed. The result is a cataclysmic slap-down from Mother Nature herself - and a whole lot of bloodshed. What sets this book apart from many similar works is that the "monster" far more loveable than the humans upon which it preys. Nayes has an opinion on humanity's rapacious devouring of habitats, and the story makes that opinion abundantly clear, but does so without turning the story i [...]

    14. If you are a fan of Michael Crichton style novels, then you will definitely want to read this sci-fi thriller, Smilodon. Alan Nayes manages to make the scenes so gripping, that the read went by very fast, despite the fact that this is a 300 page book. The writer weaves in touching backstory as Jason Bristol is still struggling with his son's mauling by a bear while he's also tracking a killer Saber Tooth Tiger. There's a large cast of characters, even a few villainous guys that I was really hopi [...]

    15. Love itI can't tell you how much I enjoyed this. The action was great. The romance was wonderful. The only thing I can say bad about this is the fact that Alan likes the many technical words that I had no idea what they ment. I had to go to many times. BUT, I really did enjoy reading it.

    16. The book was really slow. It was interesting enough to keep me reading, but really didn't get exciting until the last 100 pages. Then it just ended abruptly. I won't be reading it again. One good thing the author used "big" words like enucleated, so at least my vocabulary has increased.

    17. Ok book.a little predictable at times. Characters we're strong. I'm glad it ended without cliffhangerst sure a sequel would be good. Happy Reading :)
