Dean Koontz is one of the great classic science fiction authors and this, in my opinion is his greatest work. The contrast between the lovable Einstein (Golden Retriever) and The Outsider is night and day, and yet somehow both of them have the capacity to capture the heart, in totally different ways. My husband and I loved this story and its narrator and it has become a firm favourite.

Not to be missed!

Having loved books 1 and 2 in The Lost World series, I eagerly downloaded, this the third book, and was not disappointed.A thrilling adventure on the lines of Jurassic Park, Primordia III adds to the story a pinch of Planet of the Apes, yes indeed, this the third book is one not to be missed.

Greg Beck does it again!

Book 2 in the amazing Lost World series, fans (like me) of book 1 will not be disappointed in this second book. Emily, a character in the first book is compelled to return to the Venezuelan Amazon rainforest, and this time she her companions are not convinced she is telling the truth about their destination. However when they arrive at Primordia their opinions change and they embark on an incredible mission.

A brilliant science fiction story.

With great characters, this audiobook is a fitting contender against Michael Critchon's Jurassic Park. When Ben discovers a letter in his parent's attic, its contents send him and his friends on an incredible adventure deep into the Venezuelan Amazon jungle, and what they discover there will amaze, horrify and ultimately be the death of some of them.

A truly unforgettable adventure!

Great science fiction story.

I am a great fan of Grieg Beck and really enjoy listening to the adventures of Alex Hunter. This spooky science fiction set in the middle of the jungle is a really good example of the excellent story telling of this talented author.

Science fiction at its absolute best!

This story has it all! The story-line is excellent, there are wonderful characters, and the alien species, well you will just have to listen to it yourself to discover how clever and cunning they are!

This is the first book my husband and I have listened to by this talented and well known author, and we are now totally hooked. His fantastic plot kept us on the edge of our seats as we listened eagerly to discover the next stage of the adventure.

A true thrilling roller-coaster of a ride, not to be missed by lovers of great science fiction.

An amazing and enlightening coming-of-age story

In this engaging audio book, the author through the wonderful narration of Nicola Rene, takes her listeners on an incredible journey of discovery. It is fiction yet based on a world which is very real, yet hidden from many. It is harrowing and yet uplifting as the listeners are taken on a rollercoaster ride through Anna's life. Full of a myriad of emotions, I found this this wonderful audio book totally engaging and have no hesitation in recommending it.I was given a free copy to review by the author.

If you're looking for a great story... this is it!
