'Over twelve novels and two collections, Lydia Millet has emerged as a major American novelist, writing vividly about the ties between people and other animals and the crisis of extinction. Her exquisite new novel, the first since A Children’s Bible, tells the story of an Arizona man’s relationship with the family next door, whose house has one wall made entirely out of glass. The story delivers attraction and love, friendship and grief. But Millet also evokes the uncanny. Through close observation of human and animal life in the desert, she captures the daunting scale of human society without losing sight of the real difference one person can make in the world. Written with humor and benevolence, Dinosaurs asks big questions: Can a person be good? Can a man be good? Compellingly told, emotionally moving, and intellectually rich, Dinosaurs may be Millet’s finest novel yet.'

Dinosaurs is a book full of philosophical inconsistencies and veiled misandry.

Not really my taste. A story about middle-aged rich Americans; absolutely nothing happens. Any anticipated drama quickly fizzles out. An easy listen but if I'd been reading it I would have donated it to charity a few chapters in

Interesting, but a little disjointed due to switching from current time to memories. Not what I expected from the title, but I liked it, especially the realization at the end.

I liked the main character and his opinions on life, people, etc resonated with me. It was interesting following his experiences with new neighbors, moving to a new state, volunteer work situations - I saw the book as a way to see those experiences through the eyes of someone different from myself. I did not relate to the author’s theme of animal extinction in the world.
