Summary

Charles Dawson is trapped 100 million years in the past. Trying to survive from day to day in a world of dinosaurs, he devises a plan to change his fate. As he begins to write messages in the soft mud of a nearby stream, he can only hope they will be found by someone who can stop his time travel.

Professor Ron Fontana and Professor Ray Taggit, scientists with opposing views, each discover the fossilized messages. While attempting to save Charles, Professor Fontana, his daughter, Lauren, and their friend, Danny, are forced to join Taggit and his group of mercenaries. Taggit does not intend to rescue Charles Dawson, but to force Dawson to travel back in time to gather samples for Taggit's fame and fortune.

As the two groups jump through time, they find they must work together to make it back alive as this fast-paced thriller climaxes at the very moment the age of dinosaurs is ending.

Hoping for more

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I love time travel and thought i would take a chance. Unfortunately the writing especially the dialogue was sophomoric at best and sometimes just plain bad.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Better and more believable dialogue. The characters acted and spoke more like grade schoolers than adults.

Would you be willing to try another one of Andy Cowell’s performances?

Hard to say

Could you see Written in Stone being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No
