Sintesi dell'editore

Roadkill...

A funny thing happened to Roger and Savanna Aldiss on the Interstate - they hit a dinosaur. But that's nothing compared to what awaits them down the road. For something is at work to reverse time itself, something which makes the clouds boil, glowing with strange lights, and ancient trees to appear out of nowhere. Something against which Roger, Savanna, a motorcycle gang, and others will make their final stand. Prehistory lives as ferocious dinosaurs run amok! Science-fiction and horror fans (and especially B-movie lovers) will enjoy this gory, action-packed thriller in the tradition of Roger Corman and George Romero.

Dinosaurs in the Mist

Fun quick listen. This book has a lot of great elements, motorcycle gang, dinosaurs, and the apocalypse. Reminded me of The Mist but with Dinosaurs at gas station instead of a grocery store. Totally had the glorious B movie feel with people holed up in a building waiting out the disaster outside. Since the story is so short you get right to the action and it keeps up the entire time. You meet a few different people but only get a short glimpse of them as they battle the dinosaurs and each other. I think this book was great at this length but could make for a fun full length novel and even a great SYFY channel movie.

Travis Baldree is a fantastic narrator and I enjoyed his narration on this story. His character voices are always spot on and this book wouldn’t have been as fun without him.

Dinosaurs, Bikers, and the Apocalypse!

Spitzer puts a pretty good book together, there were a few problems, but I can overlook them to a certain extent. One thing that bugs me is when people write about something based only on a movie they have seen, such as the Jurassic Park francise. Velociraptors were never so big that they could tear through a car. They were the size of turkeys for pete's sake, some as big as chickens. This is a legitimate issue for me, becuase when the past is catching up to the future it should be accurate. Secondly, it is most likely that Spinosaurus was a fish eater. So, research helps.

As for the story it moved pretty quickly, and had a Mist (Stephen King) feel to it. I enjoyed how you got into different character's heads, and each of them was believable. The ending was satisfactoy, but went out more on a bang than an explosion.

Baldree does a good job narrating, and utilizes numerous voices for the characters.

Fun.

Rodger and Savannah are travelling along the interstate when they enter a storm. This storm is weird though and they know they need to find shelter soon. As they look, they hit something, an animal of some sort. Savannah recognises it, but it can't be what she thinks, because they are extinct!! When the thing attacks her husband she kills it and drives to the first place she sees to get help, a diner. While in the diner, the people inside realise that Dinosaurs are roaming around and extremely weird things are happening. Just what is going on?

This is a short listen and as such suffers a little with the character development and the plot. The plot is fast paced and entertaining but it just doesn't make much sense and really needs to be expanded upon. I felt like that if the book was a little longer, it would have been great! Same with the characters, I didn't connect with any of them nor did I really care what happened them.

Saying that, it was still a fun listen. The action starts right from the get go and continues the whole way through. Its an intriguing idea and I would love to see another book!!

The narrator did a good job with this. He portrayed the feelings and emotions really well and gave life to some of the characters. I will have to check out more by him.

Fun and just the right length

You have to love a book about dinosaurs and bikers. The other reviews are spot on about the flashback and pace of the book. However, I would also recommend this book because it is fun, exciting, and just the right length. Some books have really great stories but drag on in sections that make the book look like an EKG with excitement and downtime. This book was fun but did not keep going and going just to fill in pages. The narrator has a great voice that adds to the story and seems to fit right into the story like it's 100% natural. This could very well be one of those books that gets a very loyal following.

So. Much. Fun.

I couldn't have loved this book any more than I did! Though, as a lover (and maker) of horror, I believe I am the target audience for this kind of tale.

'Flashback' is a story about a couple living their lives, driving down the interstate, when they suddenly come face to face with what appears to be a living dinosaur. As the story evolves (hah!), we discover what forces may have caused the world to roll back in time, for the weather to boil and for prehistoric monsters to rise. I can't say more for fear of spoilers, but I will say that this book has a fantastic cast of characters - dynamic, compelling and authentic.

I also can't say enough good things about Travis Baldree. He is out-of-this-world fantastic with narration and he doesn't disappoint here. I would recommend this story to absolutely anyone who enjoys fun horror - this one is really a doozy! I will likely listen again! 10/10

Short but fun ride!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was like Jurassic Park but on a much bigger scale (and much more gory). I really enjoyed it. I wish the dinopocalypse reason would have been explained, but that wasn't a big deal on this one. If you want a short, exciting listen, this would be a good choice.

The story we all wanted to write as a child

It’s the story every little boy wanted to write as a child. Aliens have caused the end of the world as we know it, they have used dinosaurs to do it. A lone band of bikers and the people they hold in a fiber face off against these prehistoric beasts. So little boy checklist: aliens check, bikers check, dinosaurs check, end of the world check. Great stuff. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Bikers and dinosaurs and people, Oh my!

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This book was a lot of fun. At first, you don't have any idea of what's going on, the same as the characters. All any of you know is that there's been some catastrophe and things are going downhill fast. Then Roger and Savannah run into their first dinosaur and things go from bad to worse. This is a very short book, nice for a long car ride but well worth the trip. There's a lot of drama, some good humor and a lot of "wtf is going on?" but I enjoyed all of it. In such a short time you come to care for some of the characters, I even was upset when some didn't make it. Others I was very glad they didn't make it. I want to know what happened, why everything is going the way it is. Granted, Savannah's vision/dream probably does explain it but we don't know for sure. I want to find out what happens after, do the people survive going up against all the dinosaurs? I wish there was another book. The narrator does a great job of bringing the characters alive, making the voices different enough that you don't have too much trouble figuring out who is talking. Overall, a fun quick book well worth a listen.

Man what a ride!

Here we have an exciting tongue-in-cheek horror tale of dinosaurs verses bikers! Yep, you heard me right; dinosaurs verses bikers! While this may sound silly, the writing is well done and the narrator brings the story to life. Our main pair of victims, err… characters Roger Aldiss and wife Savanna are driving home one night when they literally run across a… dinosaur! Not appreciating being road kill the dinosaur, a Velociraptor attacks! The sky turns black and the clouds boil as if in the midst of a tornado. Savanna dispatches the raptor, takes over driving, and makes for the near gas station. Within the station are an attendant, a traveling couple, and a group of bikers. The balance of this short story is a fast paced high octane rush for our survivors to escape the growing number of dinosaurs or become lunch! Why and how did this craziness happen? There is some speculation that we as a culture finally reaped what we have sewn. Perhaps this is true, but man what a ride!

Flashback Was a Blast To Listen To

Flashback was an action-packed adventure from the start. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. The storyline was good; apocalyptic-ish as well as noir-ish while having a realistic feel. The main characters, Roger and Savannah were likeable as well as the supporting extras.

While this is the first audiobook I've listened to by Wayne Kyle Spitzer it won't be the last. I have listened to Travis Baldree before and he is an exceptional narrator. He took this story to the next level. He was the perfect reader for this story. He really puts the listener into the story and gives it that extra element of excitement.

Flashback is an overall great listen and I hope there's a follow up. I'd reccomend giving this a listen.
