I actually read a book about dinosaurs very recently and while I haven't watched the television series that you are talking about, I think you might enjoy it. The book is called End of an Era and the author is Robert Sawyer. It's about this paleontologist who wants to know what really killed the dinosaurs and makes use of an experimental time travelling device to go found out. What the paleontologist and his partner who accompanies him did not expect was to find that there is a war going on! Despite going back to the Cretaceious period, the two humans discover that dinosaurs are not the only live on earth, but that Martians are also wreaking havoc. These Martians are actually using the dinosaurs as pawns, which I know sounds like b-movie schlock, but the story is actually very good.
Pet Sematary by Stephen King, but only because I was way, way too young to read it when I did so the first time. That book legitimately gave me nightmares for weeks and I was too scared to tell my parents why I was suddenly waking up in the night screaming. From what I've heard King himself considers Pet Sematary to be amongst his scariest work and even all these years later I'm inclined to agree. Funnily enough, I didn't find any of the movie adaptations to be even close to as scary as the book.
One of my professors in university saw me reading Starship Troopers right after the movie came out and asked me if I knew what it was really about. I proudly told him that Heinlein was obviously parodying facism and making fun of military culture and that these subtleties went straight over the director's head when the movie was made. The professor then pointed out to me that Heinlein was in actual fact being critical of democracy and making a point that nobody deserves a vote purely because of automatic citizenship due to birth. This kind of blew my mind because it was so at odds with the way that democracy works in our country. Heinlein was American himself, so I don't know where he came up with this believe and then managed to hide it so cleverly in his book that nobody else appears to have picked up on it.
This will maybe a controversial response, but I really think that Daenerys Targaryen from the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin is overpowered. Just think about it, she's beautiful, she's cunning and she has enough charisma to convince virtually everyone around her to die for her cause. On top of that she has got a couple of dragons and armies at her beck and call.
Becki Willis - Christmas Crimes in a Small Community
FEATURED AUTHOR - As an avid reader herself, Becki Willis likes to write about believable characters in believable situations. Many of her books stem from personal experiences. (No worries; she's never actually murdered anyone.) She's won several awards, but the real compliments come from her readers. Becki loves spending time with her family, unraveling a good mystery, traveling, dark chocolate, and strong coffee.  As our Author of the Day, Willis tells us all about her book, Christmas in The Sisters.
