In the novel Planet of the Apes, the three Frenchmen making the first interstellar journey discover a remarkably Earth-like world orbiting Betelgeuse--Earth-like, with one crucial difference: The humans are dumb beasts, and the apes are intelligent. Captured during a terrifying manhunt, locked in a cage, and ignorant of the simian language, Ulysse Merou struggles to convince the apes that he possesses intelligence and reason. But if he proves he is not an animal, he may seal his own doom.
Like the first movie, the novel Planet of the Apes has a twist ending, but a twist of a different--yet equally shocking--sort. --Cynthia Ward

Quick read and fun to catch up on a classic sci-fi book. Read in one day spent in an airport.Published 15 days ago by Mike
Typical mid-20th century space/sci-fi opera. Predictable plot even though it greatly differs from the Heston film (haven't seen the more resent reboot). Read morePublished 17 days ago by L.Jay
