    PDF NEW [Dinotopia First Flight] Yes it's a children's book but I still think it is way too simplistic especially compared to the first Dinotopia book And the whole ancient high tech civilization angle always felt out of place so it is hard to like a book focused on that aspect

Dinotopia First Flight review Æ 103 In Dinotopia First Flight the third book in the best selling Dinotopia series we travel back to Dinotopia's ancient past where the empire of Poseidos is about to use its robot technology to exterminate the peaceful dinosaurs of Dinotopia O. Dinotopia series has always been a curious series feeling like something out of another age It s a story which feels like it s been written right from the age of classic Dan Dare comics but with total sincerity never once winking at its audience or feeling like a homage That nature allows the often simplistic storytelling or sometimes out of time nature of each installment to retain your interest long enough to recognise some of the brilliant elements of world building It s the level of thought behind certain elements of the world itself which always seemed to make it stand out as well as the truly brilliant artwork which helped bring it to life These elements remain a part of the work here but it does feel like creator James Gurney took things a little too far this timeSet during a time of war the book sees Dinotopia on the verge of a massive conflict which could rip the island apart The mechanised empire of Poseidos is seeking to expand into the otherwise peaceful world with its leaders spurred on by visions of conuest and power Rebelling against the society which raised him the orphaned Gideon Altaire prepares to fight and save another world from extinctionLet s get the obvious out of the way The art is breathtaking The number of details uality and sheer brilliance of each illustration is truly a marvel to behold and are easily the strongest point within the novel Brightly coloured and intricately designed everything from the futuristic environments of Poseidos to the rustic jungles are brilliantly penciled There are few to no bad things which can truly be said about them and it is with these that the book earns a recommendation Even if this had simply been an artbook it would be well worth the price of purchaseThe other positive thing is that there is a definitive arc to the story which fits with the classical feel of the series Altaire s story is traditionalist to a fault completely embracing every trope and idea of a lowly hero opposing an empire but it oddly works due to the simplicity of its presentation You clearly see what separates him from the rest of his people very early on and just why he accomplishes his victories as the story goes by It might be extremely simple to the point of being borderline archaic at times but the storytelling does hit all the basics without any glaring flaws in his tale Unfortunately the problems begin to creep in once you move away from thisSpeaking personally for a moment what made the original Dinotopia work was that its story was mostly an excuse to see the world the book was set in The journey there traveled the length and breadth of the island briefly touching upon each area of interest in turn before coming to an end It built up a real idea of how this society could exist with a number of surprising factors which would normally be overlooked by other authors Here it seems that strength has been forgotten in favour of a much straightforwards story of an evil empire and a hero as a result it unfortunately makes the book all the unremarkable For all we see of Poseidos with all the additional notes added it looks as if the book is skipping past them to instead emphasise upon the war This would be fine normally but the book s format simply isn t suited to detailing conflict and suanders far too much of its potential by focusing upon this aspect This is also ignoring the other big problemWhile not nearly as bad as James Cameron s venomous screaming production about the evils of science and how great nature is there is obvious moralising going on here The good guys are the ones with primitive weapons who are attuned with nature The evil ones are a technologically advanced empire who are seeking to expand their borders for power s sake We ve seen this song and dance many times before and given the later paradise shown in the books it comes across as heavily anti technology and anti progress Combined with how extremely ineffectual the machines of war are and that many seem to be designed as poor copies of dinosaurs you can t help but feel the entire thing was weighted in favour of one sideNow obviously any industrial age metropolis is an easy bad guy for a book but so are towering towering flesh eating lizards of war ridden by savages The few points where First Flight does try to show technology in a good light feel like concessions highlighting a few exceptions in their society than saying a technological civilisation is bad It might be children s fiction but that doesn t mean that it should demonise one side so easilyThe book isn t especially bad but it s not exactly good either The previous books simply do a better job at presenting the world at large and feel less like they are pushing a message

Dinotopia First Flight review Æ 103 Fought side by side to save their world from extinction As an added bonus the front cover opens up into a beautifully illustrated board game Complete with game cards in the back this book and board game offer hours of family entertainment. Yeah I m not loving this one It seems solidly aimed at young children with its very simple story of good vs evil and the length of the story The artwork is still fantastic but I m a bit confused at the abundance of the most amazing technology in Dinotopia s past and none of it is available in the present There s also the addition of a lot mammals in the past that we ve also never seen in the present Are we to determine that some catastrophe happened to send Dinotopia s evolutionary and technological advancement backward The second half of the book also confuses me There s a whole second story of a different character fighting against the Poseidians that would have been great to see illustrated alongside Gideon s story Why do we only get one illustrated story The end materials don t explain the reason for this There are also extensive notes on places characters creatures etc that we don t encounter in the book I m not sure what the point of that is either Is Gurney just sharing his thoughts with us I wish the bonus materials had explanation Overall the artwork is still beautiful and worth looking at but I couldn t get into the story and found the bonus materials confusing Concepts of Programming Languages reason for this There are also extensive notes on places characters creatures etc that we don t encounter in the book I m not sure what the point of that is either Is Gurney just sharing his thoughts with us I wish the bonus materials had explanation Overall the artwork is still beautiful and worth looking at but I couldn t get into the story and found the bonus materials confusing
