Publisher's Summary

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.

Go Ape

Any additional comments?

Excellent novelization by Alex Irvine, and in fact, in considering this Audible performance by Christian Rummel, it is better to think of this media art as something other, and perhaps better than a "movie version" or even an original novel (if it existed), and I think this is much closer to the old-time radio experience, where a story comes alive and plays more than a movie in the imagination. You have an exciting story that furiously knocks you over, and yet you have all the deeper questions, thought sparks, and fantastic nuances of Pierre Boulle's original work. Rummel's reading is deep, aggressive, and musical, and if there is any minor complaint, it would be in his voice interpretation of the one female character, which is somewhat cringe-worthy (but it is a very small criticism, and does not detract from the overall production). This is a great "Ape-pocalipse" story that rivals the horror of any zombie end of days (and yet, we find ourselves rooting for the apes, well, you know, mostly). All in all, this is a credit-worthy listen. Art et Amour Toujours
