    About "Douglas Preston Jorge Colaço"

    1. Douglas Preston Jorge Colaço

      Douglas Preston was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1956, and grew up in the deadly boring suburb of Wellesley Following a distinguished career at a private nursery school he was almost immediately expelled he attended public schools and the Cambridge School of Weston Notable events in his early life included the loss of a fingertip at the age of three to a bicycle the loss of his two front teeth to his brother Richard s fist and various broken bones, also incurred in dust ups with Richard Richard went on to write The Hot Zone and The Cobra Event, which tells you all you need to know about what it was like to grow up with him as a brother As they grew up, Doug, Richard, and their little brother David roamed the quiet suburbs of Wellesley, terrorizing the natives with home made rockets and incendiary devices mail ordered from the backs of comic books or concocted from chemistry sets With a friend they once attempted to fly a rocket into Wellesley Square the rocket malfunctioned and nearly killed a man mowing his lawn They were local celebrities, often appearing in the Police Notes section of The Wellesley Townsman It is a miracle they survived childhood intact.After unaccountably being rejected by Stanford University a pox on it , Preston attended Pomona College in Claremont, California, where he studied mathematics, biology, physics, anthropology, chemistry, geology, and astronomy before settling down to English literature After graduating, Preston began his career at the American Museum of Natural History in New York as an editor, writer, and eventually manager of publications Preston also taught writing at Princeton University and was managing editor of Curator His eight year stint at the Museum resulted in the non fiction book, Dinosaurs in the Attic, edited by a rising young star at St Martin s Press, a polymath by the name of Lincoln Child During this period, Preston gave Child a midnight tour of the museum, and in the darkened Hall of Late Dinosaurs, under a looming T Rex, Child turned to Preston and said This would make the perfect setting for a thriller That thriller would, of course, be Relic.In 1986, Douglas Preston piled everything he owned into the back of a Subaru and moved from New York City to Santa Fe to write full time, following the advice of S J Perelman that the dubious privilege of a freelance writer is he s given the freedom to starve anywhere After the requisite period of penury, Preston achieved a small success with the publication of Cities of Gold, a non fiction book about Coronado s search for the legendary Seven Cities of Cibola To research the book, Preston and a friend retraced on horseback 1,000 miles of Coronado s route across Arizona and New Mexico, packing their supplies and sleeping under the stars nearly killing themselves in the process Since then he has published several non fiction books on the history of the American Southwest, Talking to the Ground and The Royal Road, as well as a novel entitled Jennie In the early 1990s Preston and Child teamed up to write suspense novels Relic was the first, followed by several others, including Riptide and Thunderhead Relic was released as a motion picture by Paramount in 1997 Other films are under development at Hollywood studios Preston and Child live 500 miles apart and write their books together via telephone, fax, and the Internet.Preston and his brother Richard are currently producing a television miniseries for ABC and Mandalay Entertainment, to be aired in the spring of 2000, if all goes well, which in Hollywood is rarely the case.Preston continues a magazine writing career by contributing regularly to The New Yorker magazine He has also written for National Geographic, Natural History, Smithsonisan, Harper s,and Travel Leisure,among otherscmillan author dougla

    1. A thief in broad daylight, scurries over and around the windy badlands of northern New Mexico, someone is following, he is a little concerned the geologist Marston Weathers, having just found his treasure The dreams of a lifetime at long last, becomes a reality not gold or gemstones, not even ancient coins Mr Weathers is the top dinosaur hunter in the nation, but lacks honesty some would say, a stickler for obeying every rule he doesn t claim to be, that the law demands A free man, until caught [...]


    2. Tyrannosaur Canyon Wyman Ford 1 by Douglas Preston is a great thriller mystery based around an archeology find It is fast paced and exciting I enjoyed it on many levels I loved exciting stories of archaeological finds, stories that puzzle, those that might involve the government, and a new scientific find Murder, mayhem, and suspense is the bonus Good story


    3. What I wanted What I got That s what you get when you don t check up the book you reading before Anyway, the book wasn t that bad, it was just not what I wanted I wanted a t rex, perhaps a couple of t rex, and people being hunted by t rex, instead I got t rex.il and a lot of people after the fossil I had a bit of trouble getting into the story of Tyrannosaur Canyon and Wyman Ford isn t really working for me I prefer his agent Pendergast books with Lincoln Child The part of the book I liked the b [...]


    4. There s a lot going on in a remote area of New Mexico.Somebody shoots an old prospector and hides the body The old prospector had a map that leads tomething Somebody is stalking a woman There s a mysterious alphabet soup agency poking around.Lots of drama, for what I felt wasn t a lot of payoff.


    5. After finishing Impact, I was intrigued enough to try another book by Douglas Preston I selectedTyrannosaur Canyonon the basis of the reviews on.I feltTyannosaur Canyonwas a much better book even though it was written beforeImpact.I loved the irony of the plaque in Beezon s office of a minnow in the belly of a fossilized fish, itself in the belly of an even larger fossilized fish It cleverly foretold of predators chasing victims in the plot only to become the victim of even larger predators.As b [...]


    6. You know it s a bad sign when you keep flipping to the end of the book to see how much further you have to slog til the end I consider myself a fan of the Lincoln Child LC books At the time of this writing I ve read seven Pendergast books back to back earlier this year Although I wouldn t categorize them as tomes of High Literature I do find them well written especially for the thriller genre , suspenseful, interesting, and almost always entertaining Having blazed through those seven co authored [...]


    7. I picked this book up expecting to be entertained I m perfectly able to suspend disbelief if they story is good enough Oh my was I disappointed This book was about as interesting as watching paint dry This author is according to the blurb hailed by Publishers Weekly as better than Crichton My ass I ve read most of Cricthons books and although not all of them were to my liking, not one of them came close to this in sheer stupidity.If you hate something you re supposed to be specific I ll give it [...]


    8. WHAT WHERE ARE THEM DINOSAURS Misleading titles Fffffffffffffff I don t know There was something essential missing that should ve been part of such an action incorporated, part science fiction thriller.Wish I could pinpoint it out but I wouldn t want to waste thoughts on this.Mediocre.Or maybe just missing a live T Rex.


    9. I just read Preston s 2017 non fiction Lost City of the Monkey God and someone mentioned Tyrannosaur Canyon in a review I recall being on the disappointed side with Canyon , as I was expecting something like a combination of Preston s great Relic and Crichton s great Jurrassic Park But no, this is a rather weak outing by this author Best to stick to Preston s Pendergast work and his latest aforementioned Monkey God.


    10. A thriller by Douglas Preston, copyright 2005 It must have been reasonably good, because I couldn t put it down Mind you, I am a sucker for mysteries and or thrillers that involve the science of paleontology.I found the pacing excellent the point of view changed regularly, but there was no confusion about whose POV each chapter captured There was a perfect number of characters I could keep them all straight and their names did not blend together to perplex me.The book begins with the moon landin [...]


    11. This was a very action packed book and I loved every moment The plot was clear and I loved the story I definitely recommend it.


    12. A techno thriller for dinosaur nerds Although the cover art and blurbs present Tyrannosaur Canyon as a Jurassic Park knock off, this book is about humans who chase fossils for both the brief glimpse into a lost world and the financial rewards which accompany it, all wrapped in the cloak of a fast paced thriller Here s a bit of a disclaimer I grew up wanting to be a paleontologist, and am predisposed to favor any story about this topic which is at least competently written Douglas Preston s prose [...]



    13. I have learned over the years of reading in the same few genres and from reading the same authors that you will come across similar situations Most of the time this is not a bad thing but when you read your sixteenth novel by Douglas Preston, it starts to feel familiar but not in a good I have had this pizza and loved it kind of way but like man, the same pizza that used to taste god until I ate it until my taste buds revolted against the repetitive taste kind of way The book is fascinating at [...]


    14. It s strange that I could enjoy this book but still have a lot to complain about I cannot continue without SPOILERS As a dinosaur enthusiast, I was intrigued by the title and while the back cover didn t say TOO much about the plot, I suspected there would be a T Rex somewhere in the story I knew the treasure had to involve a dinosaur somehow and this intrigue helped me plow through almost 100 pages, cordially accepting each of the many characters and their different POVs, when all of a sudden, a [...]


    15. I would be ashamed to acknowledge that I read this novel, if it were not for the fact that my story may serve as a cautionary tale for others I have never read Douglas Preston before this book I likely will never again read Douglas Preston The blurb on the cover states, If John Grisham had written Jurassic Park, he couldn t do better than Tyrannosaur Canyon I think, if John Grisham chose to sue for libel he would have a compelling case This book was meant to fill the desperately needed void of l [...]


    16. Fast moving and complex, Tyrannosaur Canyon kept me on the edge throughout It was hard to stop reading since every chapter left the characters in dicey situations and you wanted to know what happens next Preston uses Crighton s technique of short chapters, moving among 3 4 major characters Unexpected new developments kept happening right up until the climax The last few intense action scenes were over the top, I kept wondering how the characters could keep functioning and stay alive after all th [...]


    17. I just finished this book for work, which was on loan from a good friend who recommended it to me For the type of book that it is, it is all right.Basically the plot revolves around a group of people trying to be the first to lay claim to a mummified Tyrannosaurus Rex I ll grant you that the moon rock virus bit was a nice unexpected twist, but this book suffers from what many books of this age suffer from Sparse character development, lots ofswearing and solving problems by violent means I was r [...]


    18. I was not sure if I would be able to get into this book as much as I have other books by the author, but I was The science was kept understandable and it was interesting.


    19. Fun action packed read Imagine if Dan Brown was a better author and wrote about fossils and government coverups instead of Church conspiracy theories.



    20. Not as good as the 2nd and 3rd book Or could have been my fault as I started reading from book 3 going to book 1 Lesson to self ALWAYS start with the first book


    21. Carte tipica de aventuri Reuseste sa te tina in intuneric in privinta unuia dintre elementele importante ale actiunii, particula Venus, dar dezvaluirile finale nu m au impresionat Fiind vorba de o serie de 4 volume, ramane de vazut Sfarsitul cartii ridica niste intrebari interesante legate de provenienta particulei Venus si a asteroidului care a eliminat dinozaurii.Seria se numeste Wyman Ford, dar prima carte pune in centrul actiunii pe Tom Broadbent Ford apare doar ca personaj secundar.


    22. I read this book for a challenge, otherwise I probably never would have picked it up I saw this quote better than Crichton and though I have not read Jurassic Park I have seen the movie and I could not imagine if this book was made into a movie, I would not like it near as much However, I liked the direction the story went, and I enjoyed the way the author chose to explain things Decent read, way better than I thought it would be for its content.




    23. Had a slow start for me I mean the content was good, but just seemed to move slow but was worth the wait in the end.


    24. Est aqui outro grande romance de Douglas Preston, um dos meus autores favoritos um daqueles livros que nos prende a aten o na primeira p gina e n o nos larga at acabarmos de ler o ltimo par grafo Para al m disso, desperta em n s ideias, pensamentos e reflex es que nos acompanham muito para l de termos terminado a leitura do livro Douglas Preston definitivamente um mestre na constru o de hist rias que combinam ci ncia, religi o e as implica es do confronto entre ambas Neste livro, o autor parte d [...]



    25. I just finished Tyrannosaur Canyon, by Douglas Preston, clearly my favorite book of his so far I think I am always excited when I am reading a good book, but I think this was the best yet My reasons are partially negative ones There were no gory, gruesome murders in this one, and fewer killings than in the others I ve read However, I think he still describes dying in a lot detail than is necessary.The story begins with a murder just not a terribly gruesome one Bad enough, of course, but not lik [...]
