Humans

by Robert J. Sawyer

Tom Doherty Associates | July 6, 2010 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review

Neanderthal physicist Ponder Boddit, a character you will never forget, returns to our world and to his relationship with geneticist Mary Vaughn, in this sequel to Hominids, winner of the Hugo Award for best novel, as cultural exchanges between the two Earths begin.

Robert J. Sawyer, an award-winning and bestselling writer, hits the peak of his powers in this trilogy about our world and a parallel one in which Neanderthals became the dominant intelligent species. This powerful idea allows Sawyer to examine some of the deep-rooted assumptions of contemporary human civilization, by confronting us with another civilization, just as morally valid, that made other choices. As we see daily life in a present-day world that is radically different from ours, we experience the bursts of wonder and enlightenment that are the finest pleasures of science fiction.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed After reading Hominids I was expecting the same or better from Humans, but it wasn't there. The story was slow and pretty boring. There was no real development of the story beyond what happens at the end of the book. The book seemed to focus entirely on the conflicting emotions of the main characters and largely ignored the science, politics and suspense that made Hominds a great book. This book was a page turner not becasue you wanted to see what happened but to see if anything would happen. I hope Hybrids is better.
