Format: Mass Market Paperback
Buy this book for the cover alone.
Seriously. Is it just me, or did book covers used to be a lot more fun? I look at this, I see a chimp with a spear fighting a thunder lizard, I have to buy it. I would buy anything from a geometry text book to a Harliequinn romance novel if it had an ape fighting a dinosaur on the cover. I just look at this thing, I'm twelve again.
But what about the book itself? Well, it's based on Tim Burton's 2001 remake, and a follow up to the same author's PoTA: The Fall, a decent book with a sadly dino free cover. The story follows a group of apes setting out to found a new colony in strange, uncharted land. Problem is something reptilian has gotten there first, and is developing a taste for ape. The story almost totally ignores the humans living on the planet, which is a bit of a letdown as a reunion between some of the characters in the first book would have been welcome. Also, though there is no cliffhanger ending, there does seem to be a lot left unsaid. I get the impression that Mr. Quick thought he'd be able to flesh out the story in further books, but the backlash against the movie put a premature stop to his plans. Still, if you enjoy the Apes movies at all, I recommend this book wholeheartedly.
Plus- Apes vs. Dinosaurs!!!
