Its about the "Bone Wars" though so I'm not sure if it'll really have dinosaurs in it or just fossils. Not that Im not excited about it just wish it was a secret JP book they found instead.

I didn't like Micro, but I hope this is good. There seems to be a lot of these 'unpublished' works of his, and I'm sure we'll be seeing them over the years.

Is this one of those he wrote the whole thing and never published, or it was sort of worked out and someone else comes in to smooth out the details and finish what wasn't done? I always find those books troublesome, because even though I know it wasn't the author's fault they couldn't finish them, I can't help but think how much was the original author's words, and how much was the other person. Is this how original author wanted the book to end? I'll still enjoy it if it is a good book, but just can't help but think about that sometimes.

Ah, thank you! Sounds interesting, I may give it a shot, especially as I haven't checked out a Crichton novel in a long time.

It occurred to me that we don't really have that many novels or films that are actually ABOUT paleontology, definitely keeping an eye out for the book to reach the UK!! Very Happy

Whaaat? How the hell did I miss this? Call me excited!

Yeah Micro was somewhat bland (although made better by John Bedford Lloyd's always-amazing voice in audiobook form) and another author's input certainly didn't help, however I LOVED Pirate Latitudes through and through, so I have high hopes for these final works.

Somewhat surprised that it's only 304 pages, for that is quite short
https://www.amazon.com/Dragon-Teeth-Novel-Michael-Crichton/dp/0062473352/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1479250602&sr=8-1&keywords=dragon+teeth

The cover is decent even if pretty standard

only 304? Should be 350, but I just hope it doesn't end up feeling rushed

Well to be fair now that I checked, Pirate Latitudes was just around the same ballpark at 313. But yeah I think 350 is around the minimum I usually want
