“I never really got into this book, but for the sake of the "Tolerance" Unit I'm reading it for in English, I tolerated it and finished it. It was okay, got me thinking, but definately not one of my favorites. Read it if you dare. :)”Hannah E. J wrote this review Sunday, April 29, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“A book which led me down a path of inquiry and and asked me to question even more deeply the pervasive story of Mother Culture.
Talk about suspension of disbelief! What could be more implausible than a telepathic dialogue with a highly evolved gorilla? The logic and far-reaching implications of this book's organizing principle fell in line with many wordless questions already stirring in my mind. I like books which rattle paradigms and this is one of those.”
“I had to read this for my philosophy class, and I feel like I would have enjoyed the book better if I didn't have 3 days to finish it.
Overall, it's a thought provoking book that causes the reader to think outside the box. It's not for those who would enjoy an exciting, and fun book. Honestly, I wouldn't have read it if it wasn't for the class. I'm glad I read it, and it was worth my time.”

“I found this to be very boring because the characters did not move in 90% of the book (the scenes didn't change) but I liked the fact that it thought about the inaccuracy of religion.”Kelsey C wrote this review Sunday, January 1, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
