    "This book is meant to be about a Bigfoot but in reality it's more about a relationship between a father and his son. The characters are well developed to some extent and the plot moves at a relatively normal speed. The events are more or less believable but the book never manages to become amazing. From the beginning to the end it's just mediocre... "

    "Everyone knows Jurassic Park! Reading this book will not disappoint. It really is one of the best novels I have read that features monsters (or dinosaur monsters)! I will be giving this book to my teenage son to read when I am finished so we can chat about the differences between movies and books. Great read!"

    "The Shining is a classic novel from Steven King who always provides rich stories that are great reads. This book is very imaginative and the story is engrossing. You will never feel the same about staying at a hotel after reading The Shining. "

    "I wanted to read a good novel that features monsters and found Relic (Pendergast Series). This story is well written and it has a great monster and horror background. Its also part of a series, which means I can keep reading more. Overall, I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in monsters. "

    "I have always been fascinated by monsters and the stories of people who interact with them. I first saw this book when I was searching for a different title but, after reading the synopsis, knew this would be something I am interested in. I patiently waited for it to be delivered but, once it got to my home, I could not put it down. "

    "This is a really great book with some nice monsters, but you have to really give it a shot, for my liking it started off really slow and I found it hard to get into. I decided to keep with it and I'm so glad I did because it just keeps getting better and better and the book ends off a lot stronger than it starts. Definitely worth a read and if you're bored after starting it just remember this and power through that boredom and it gets better."
