I loved "Raptro Red"
I purchased _Raptor Red_ Friday evening on my way home from work and began
reading it imediately. I could not put this book down. I finished it at
2:30 am Sunday morning because I wanted to find out if Raptor Red survived.
I loved this story! I dont care how many fanas, periods and continents may
have been merged. People could label it as an anthropamorphic projection
of dinosauria, but I was enthralled by this story. It was new and
foreign to me and I was captured. I could relate to Raptor red!
I grieved for her and her family. I found the epilogue compelling and
my amature spirit was filled with motivation to learn more. My only
dissapointment was that the story wasnt longer.
Please, excuse me I am an "amature." I follow the debates on this list as
best I can with a library of books I have purchased mostly to fool myself
that I understand the material shared by professionals and students. This
book really grabbed my heart, my love of dinosaurs, and my respect of
Bobs "creativity" asside, he tells a story like no other. He may be
right, he may be wrong, but he captured my amature imagination. I guess
he helped me put things in perspective. He wrote it in a way that I "The
Amature" could understand AND appreciate.
Mr. Bakker, if this happens to get forwarded to you I hope I have the
pleasure of meeting you some day, or better yet helping you on a dig and
being treated not to a signature, but to a dinosaur story by a warm camp
fire on a warm summers night with your furr ball at our feet.
