I'm very fond of the Moby Dick reference. It's ridiculous, but somehow having the ship captain chasing the great white pleisiosaur to make the plot move conveniently was fun rather than annoying.

Senior moment -- I was wondering how anyone could accuse Robert J. Sawyer of egregious self-promotion until I realized I was confusing Robert Charles Wilson. Saw the cover and thought Darwinia, which doesn't make a lot of sense but then again with increasing age a lot of associations don't make much sense.

Clearly, the Arisians used their visualization of the Cosmic All to set things up so the the dinosaurs would evolve intelligence and science just as their planet came to an end, thus ensuring they would develop space travel and make it to Earth in time to cash in on the merchandising for "Jurassic Park V: this time, they're on a spaceship."

Still can't get over the dino-fucking scene.

"Quintaglio Ascension" is about the clumsiest name ever.

I don't know how it got past the QA department.

Not only that, but I fixated on the "quint" part of the name, and managed to convince myself it was a five-book series instead of a trilogy. And then kept being annoyed because I couldn't find the last two books, and doubly annoyed because I wasn't sure I wanted to because the third book was so weak.

The third book was so weak.
