Imian language art and science zoos lobotomyxperiments and Lastly we discover how the shift occurred and monkeys came to rule the world Pierre Boulle has a uniue way of telling a story full of detail yet is ntertaining and creative Overall I njoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who likes any movies from the franchise Thanks Caution Vague Spoilers AheadI don t really think that I can do this book justice in my review I thought that it was "brilliant I know that I have seen the movie long ago and remember the big reveal at the Love for Imperfect Things end and Charlton know that I seen the movie long ago and remember the big reveal at thend and Charlton about damning A Heart of Stone everyone all to hell but I don t remember much than that I ll have to watch the movie againI really loved the subtle cautionary tale running throughout the story Maybe it s just my feminist liberal bleeding heart whispering to me but I feel that Boulle just plain hated live animalxperiments and was determined to show people that the tables could be turned one day Easily But than that the book cautions us not to be complacent and lazy about our place in life and in the food chain and to keep striving and learning and bettering ourselves but NOT at the cost of other life forms We re on top now but only time will tell if we stay there And do we actually deserve to be We the Lords of Creation seem to think that we can do anything and Taking Instruction (Taboo, everything we want to do We re so filled with pride that we never think that OUR civilization could fall Those kind of things are for history books not real life Yet we consume resources like they re going out of style and pollute thearth like we have a spare and just generally act like there s a Reset button somewhere that we can just press when we ve reached the point of no return Why shouldn t another species give running things a try If they can do it better But that s the thing They imitate us so WOULD they do it better At one point in the story when Merou was being shown the xperiments I thought to myself They are proud of the fact that they are keeping the animals down Taking any vestiges of humanity or rational thought away as soon as it is displayed in order to protect themselves They are of humanity or rational thought away as soon as it is displayed in order to protect themselves They are fearful of the possibility of human uprising that they commit atrocities to prevent them And then I thought to myself Oh snap So do we We can justify anything And so can Apes who apparently learned from the best In xamining the Apes we re looking at ourselves Can we really pass judgmentBut I was happy to see that the three races of Apes could cohabitate and cooperate in peace which is than we ve accomplished so far Our differences divide us but the Apes recognize and relish their differences and use them well But Apes still seem to rival Man in the fear department the unknown is scary so just destroy it and move onI do have to say that I was kind of annoyed with Merou s assumption that life forms in a far far away galaxy would automatically be human to be intelligent It just goes to show that our pride will be our downfall But it reminded me of a uote from another science fiction book that I Divertimento enjoyed Solaris by Stanislaw Lem which you should remember if you keep up with my reviewsWe take off into the cosmos ready for anything for solitude for hardship forxhaustion death Modesty forbids us to say so but there are times when we think pretty well of ourselves And yet if we Love Is a Fairy Tale examine it closely ournthusiasm turns out to be all sham We don t want to conuer the cosmos we simply want to Promise at Dawn extend the boundaries of Earth to the frontiers of the cosmos For us such and such a planet is as arid as the Sahara another as frozen as the North Pole yet another as lush as the basin We are humanitarian and chivalrous we don t want tonslave other races we simply want to beueath them our values and take over their heritage in xchange We think of ourselves as the Knights of the Holy Contact This is another lie We are only seeking Man We have Othes and men are speechless naked xhibited at fairs used for biological research On the planet of the apes man having reached to apotheosis of his genius has become inert To this planet come a journalist and a scientist The scientist is put into a zoo the journalist into a laboratory Only the journalist retains the spiritual strength and creative intelligence to try to save himself to fight the appalling. .
