T Rex and the Crater of Doom

characters T Rex and the Crater of Doom 107 What happened largely because Walter Alvarez synthesizing the findings of experts from a variety of scientific fields has written a gripping story of the decades long search for the cause of the dinosaurs' extinction Painstakingly assembling clues from the Italian Apennines and the depths of the Pacific and presenting them with the excitement of a great novel T rex and t. This doesn t focus in on the dinosaurs around the time of the extinction event so don t go in wanting that This focuses almost entirely in on the geology used to determine how the extinction event occurred and where This was absolutely fascinating and Mr Alvarez s writing made it approachable and easy to understand for a casual reader He took the time to explain size and speeds in ways I was able to grasp uickly and the pacing of this worked almost like an adventure novel but non fiction I was a bit hesitant with this one but I really recommend it if the topic sounds interesting at all It s one I ve already bought a copy of for my own shelves
