Edgar rice Burroughs is one of the best adventure authors. In written fight scenes, it can be difficult to really feel like you’re there, but he writes them perfectly. And Snelson narrates them perfectly. He narrated this excellently. And, as a female myself, I tend to get annoyed by the ridiculous voices male narrators tend to give their female characters. Thankfully, Snelson does an decent job at that too! Wonderful book and wonderfully narrated. My only complaint is that the book isn’t longer. Lol.

A Compelling Story and a Convincing Reader


(5 stars)

I love the intrigue between an early submarine and the contrast of the terrifying and primitive life of the earliest creatures on Earth. The romance during this narrative gives the reader a sort of addiction to the story, which is indeed believable.

Fantastic story!! Very well done !

Enjoyable, but the plot is somewhat convenient

Secret dinosaur world is all I knew and came for and all I wanted, so I was disappointed at how late in the book they get to it. I didn't know it was a trilogy then. It is more understandable now. Little relevant conflict comes from the environment. For the most part this is a convenient hero's tale fighting evildoers and savages in a outdated prehistoric themed wildernes. There is some original lore surrounding the hominids that I like and I'll continue reading for it. It is nicely read.

I loved everything about these books.

The entire Caspak Series is by far the best trilogy of books I have had the honor of reading. Mr. Burroughs did an excellent job with them. My only regret is that his brilliant mind will never produce any more of these wonderful works that I can only compare to parchment that fell from the heavens. I have read it 3 times and that number will increase as time passes. If you have not read them you are doing yourself an unforgivable injustice. And Ralph Snelson is hands down my favorite reader. I don't think I would like the book read by anyone else but Mr. Snelson.

I have inherited my dad's collection of E.R.B. novels. Having read some of them in my youth, I somehow missed this series. I quite enjoyed both the narration and the story. Not sure what I can say that would not be considered a spoiler. Suffice it to say, I was impressed and somewhat surprised by the characters and setting. It helps the "science fiction" feel vastly more plausible.

Amazing tale


(5 stars)

The story is so unusual because the title implies a story about prehistoric times. However it turns out to be a war story.with a very unusual twist. Ralph Snelson was an excellent narrator and I thank him so much for his endeavours to bring this book alive.

Excellent. Good 1st story in this series.

First time listening to this book. So different than the movies. Quite a surprising ending. I'm looking forward to the continuing story in the 2nd book. Very well read
