What other readers are saying about this title:
Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
As in Water for Elephants, Gruen’s love for animals shines through in this rollicking ride. This novel is much more fun than “water”. Ostensibly a story about great apes in a language acquisition study it’s really a satire of everything from Hollywood’s obsession with appearance and reality television to activists, tabloids and even what makes a marketable novel (blow something up!). Gruen does in this novel that’s more fun than a barrel of bonobos.
