“Well, I don't know if this is because I skipped the first two books in this sequence or I am just not a fan of simians as the star of the book (I don't think that is it, since I am a fan of the original Planet of the Apes movie), but I am not enjoying this book. It is another book that I am listening to at double speed, in an effort to get through this as quickly as possible. I am getting to a point where there the story is starting to show some potential (3/4 if the way through) . . . however, I doubt that I will be reading any more in this series. I had about a 25 hours of driving from Lauderdale to Toronto with a pitstop somewhere just west of NY City, and I still did not make it all the way through this book.
Now as I am listening to the rest of the book during my bike rides - I am getting more into the story. The characters are memorable, and I must admit that I am interested in reading how it all turns out. Will the Earthlings become respected? Or will the birds have the last laugh.”
