Natural Selection

5.0 out of 5 stars TREMENDOUS FUN!, 5 Jan 2008
This book reminded me of the way Crichton used to write: instead of genetically engineered dinosaurs it's about the evolution of a never-been-seen-before predatory species that, get this, is evolving to fly. Brilliant, tremendous research, impossible to put down. I read this cover to cover in literally a day and a half. This is much more than your typical dumb fiction. Like Jurassic, the science here is precise (and real) yet still riveting. Very entertaining stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moves like a rocket!!, 5 Jan 2008
Brilliant, fast, a whole lot of fun. Another book I also LOVED: NATURAL SELECTION by Dave Freedman, all about the evolution of a new species of flying predator! Like Jurassic, it was absolutely riveting, a fantastic mix of real science and fast-moving fiction. Impossible to put down too, literally skipped work to finish it, cover to cover in a day and a half.

5.0 out of 5 stars A FANTASTIC CLASSIC, 5 Jan 2008
This review is from: The Origin of Species (Hardcover)
Yes, it's dense but a must for evolution buffs. A vastly more entertaining read: NATURAL SELECTION by Dave Freedman, all about the evolution of a new species of flying predator! What makes it fantastic is that while a work of fiction it's brilliantly researched, actually teaches you what evolution really is. It gets into the evolution of the brain, the lung, flight - really cool stuff - but unlike dry textbooks, does it at warp speed. I literally could not put this book down, read it cover to cover in 2 days. A tremendous "fictional complement" to Darwin's master work.
