What an extraordinary experience it was. Ordering up a fragment of your past, your memory - and seeing it plop through your letterbox in a jiffy bag. And yes, it really is a fantastic book, because of its outrageously non-PC emphasis on how carnivore dinosaurs were really good at fighting, how they loved ripping each other limb from scaly limb. And the book loves imagining what would happen if a certain type of dinosaur squared up to another sort - and what would happen when it all kicked off. I remember it all so well.
