TIM: Defender of the Earth

Sometimes you just want to read about a giant dinosaur fighting a robot.

TIM: Defender of the Earth by Sam Enthoven is that book.

This is a fun read, especially if you liked Cloverfield or any Godzilla movie. The story focuses on mainly the mad scientist and the giant dinosaur’s perspectives. (Yep. You get to jump into the mind of a rampaging reptile as it swats helicopters and jets.)

It reads like a movie. I made a new rule. If you promise to be a monster book, some part of the city needs to get stepped on by page 30. By page 30, that hope was fulfilled.
