Friday 56 – The Great Zoo of China

great zoo of chinaThe Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple – turn to page 56 in your current read (or 56% in your e-reader) and post a few non-spoilery sentences.

Today’s quote is from The Great Zoo of China, by Matthew Reilly. (Think Jurassic Park, but with dragons!)

Hamish shrugged. “It’s all pretty cool and impressive . . . if you never saw fucking Jurassic Park. Did you see the fangs on those things? How do we know they’re not gonna go all medieval on our asses and start munchin’ on the juicy little humans? I like old-fashioned zoos where they keep the animals in cages.”

And how prophetic those words turn out to be… tune in Thursday for my full review of this thrill ride of a book, and later today for a review of Clock Dance, the second book in Barnes & Noble’s nation-wide Book Club!

    • It is definitely an imaginary zoo; the dragons are free to roam and fly in a gigantic dome. They’re kept in – and away from people – by some kind of ultrasonic shielding. There are stationary shields around buildings, and portable shields that emanate from watches for the people. (Which is all well and good until the technology fails….)
