My opinion on The Beast of Cretacea is that the book was awesome. The author, Todd Strasser, was able to get Moby Dick and Avatar into a book that had so much unique quality, that it left me on the edge of my seat and racing to the end of the story. Each chapter provided a new outlook on the world of Cretacea leaving the reader to use his imagination on what would come next. I think it was an amazing book and I would read it over and over again. I also would recommend this book to any young person between the ages of 12-16 who enjoys science fiction. I would not recommend this book to those younger than 12 as there was some pretty harsh language and goriness also. But all in all, I enjoyed the book.
