Dinosaur Audio Book by Stephen Llewelyn, read by Chris Barrie.


DINOSAUR by Stephen Llewelyn.


An insane plan is hatched to save humanity. Fighting to stop it could doom us all. When every action and decision may determine the fate of everyone who has ever lived, the right choice is not always clear. However, for one man, there is no choice at all…

Captain James Douglas sets off on a mundane transport and supply mission that quickly descends into disaster. Leading a fledgling society through a wild and hostile world was not part of his brief. Nor was the custodianship of all human life, history and endeavour. Worse still, the knowledge of a boy, just days out of school, may be all that stands between mankind and extinction.

The crew and passengers of the USS New World are lost almost 100 million years ago in Mid-Cretaceous Gondwana. It is the time of the dinosaur.

The castaways follow a trail of mystery. Battling conflicting evidence, misinformation and baffling discoveries they hope to reveal who has placed them in such terrible danger, why, and most importantly, what on ancient Earth can they do about it?


Tim Norris was a nerd, an outcast, a ‘nobody’. When his lifelong fascination with natural history and paleontology became crucial to the very survival of over a hundred people, he was suddenly a ‘somebody’.

In his wildest dreams he could never have foreseen that he would travel to Patagonia and document such incredible creatures as Mapusaurus roseae and Argentinosaurus huinculensis, in context and from their own time in the Mid-Cretaceous. The ancient world was both a place of awesome natural beauty and bowel-clenching terror. The crew and passengers of the USS New World are surrounded by peril without and stalked by enemies within, but when compared with the desperately overcrowded, dystopian 22nd century in which he grew up, Tim wouldn’t change a thing.
