WtAFW: Dino Stud by Lola Faust


DNF @ 57%

What is this? It almost reads like a tribute to the newest Jurassic Park movie. There's no dino-fucking, though; instead, there's the eponymous studly scientist-- the dino stud-- who's working on a secret dinosaur ranch that, whoops, somehow got leaked to Buzzfeed. This book is quite a bit different from WET HOT ALLOSAURUS SUMMER, which really leaned into the whole dinorotica thing. This book is almost trying to play things straight. The writing is a lot better and the author made an attempt at world-building and even, as a pleasant surprise, diversity in the cast (one of the staff is nonbinary).

Idk, it wasn't weird enough to be fun but it wasn't fun enough to be good. I LOVE the cover and how it pays homage to the old 60s and 70s pulp novels, but this one just wasn't it.

1.5 out of 5 stars
