  • All and everything returning to the fresh death, the seed death, the green death, to the time before the beginning. The reference of death multiple times almost certainly means it will be a part of the story (pg 72)
  • Suddenly it all ceased, as if someone had shut a door. Silence. A sound of thunder. This references the title of the book as well as a recurring theme of the book. (76)
  • Sheathed over in a gleam of pebbled skin like the mail of a terrible warrior. Compares the pebbly skin of the tyrannosaurus to that of a shirt of chain mail.  (pg 77)
  • "There's no way of telling if this expedition was a success, if we got our monster, or whether all of us-meaning you, Mr. Eckles-got out alive." In this Lesperance mocks Eckles with the possibility of death. (75)
  • "For want of a lion, all manner of insects, vultures, infinite billions of life forms are thrown into chaos and destruction. Further explains the butterfly effect that would occur should anything change in the past.(pg 74)
  • The genre of this piece could be categorized with the overwhelming presence of foreboding over any change in the past, a kind of horror places upon the characters as they go on their hunt.
