Really enjoyed the parallel universe scenario. Can't wait to read the next two books.
1) Full of product placement - Coke, Taco Bell, Tim Horton's, McDonald's, Ford Explorer, CTV, Global etc. 2) Having made enough on the product endorsements, who needs a story? A man from another dimension arrives, then leaves. 3) We are subject to preaching about how bad we are as homo sapiens and summaries of anthropological studies. Choose the research instead. 4) The characters make unbelievable decisions: the worst is that three humans are quarantined in a house with a Neanderthal from another dimension and all two want to do is have sex and smoke pot. They are supposed to be scientists and yet they seem to have no interest in asking this guy about his world! I quickly lost interest.
If you're interested in paleoanthropology, this is a Sci Fi book that you won't be able to put down. It's a fast read!
This sci-fi book is pretty hard to describe, but fantastic to read (and Robert J Sawyer is Canadian - yay!)! Parallel universes collide, one is our world and the other is an alternate history where neanderthals evolved into the superior race. Those who loved the classic Stranger in a Strange Land will be able to appreciate the alien aspect of this book, and all humans will begin to ask "what if?".
I found this to be very thought provoking. Loved it.
One of my favourite SF books of all time. This was the first Robert J Sawyer book I read, and have since read almost everything he has written. One of the best SF authors out there.
