So I guess with the idea of “why mess with a winning formula” we’re back for the conclusion to the trilogy and if you were hoping for some kind of shift back toward a broader cultural exchange or even people discussing stuff that didn’t directly impact Mary and Ponter’s lovelife.

Until the final few chapters, one might have had trouble deciding what Hybrids actually was – an anthropological thought experiment, a cautionary social treatise, a hard core science fiction novel or an eco-suspense thriller, and that was great! Even the dilemma the book gives her with her husband feels contrived.

Mary struggles with her entry into the concubine and eventually rejects the idea, but she has no thought for other women, except the only one she got to know well, whom she also rescued, taking her back to live in Canada to help her escape an abusive husband. Then the book ends, abruptly. Foremost among those is the rape of a main character and the consequences flowing therefrom over the course of the book.

On the other side of the divide, we’ve got Ponter suddenly appearing in Ourworld, and learning how stupid and wicked we human are. Everyone in these novels seems to use extremely short and simple declarative sentences, even when they aren’t trying to communicate across a language and species barrier. I heartily recommend Hominids to anyone interested in a glimpse at a world where Neanderthals became the dominant species.


Originally, I thought she was selfish.

Well, I’ve got something cribbed from Dawkins about the evolutionary advantage of social behavior Maybe he knows much more about rape and its victims than I do. Morrese rated it liked it. I love fish out of water stories. Hominids is a pretty good first book in a trilogy with a cool premise, namely, that there is a parallel universe where Neanderthals became the dominant hominid species on an otherwise-identical Earth.

If he had more confidence in his beliefs, he would have presented nexnderthal readers with the evidence and allowed us the luxury of coming to our own conclusion about humanity rather than bludgeoning us over the head with his ideas. He also wanted to tackle a controversial issue and deal with it head on.

The terms of the debate, the information exchanged, the facticity of what is said, none of that is relevant to reader satisfaction. This article needs additional citations for verification.

The story ends before any large-scale intermingling and rationalization of the two races’ science can begin, so the ultimate outcome of detailed comparison between these viewpoints is unknown. The rape is pretty well known at this point and it happens very early in the book. This book raises several disturbing questions.

Your paaralaje of the site and services is subject to these policies and terms. Does Sawyer really intend to continue presenting the alternate world as so preferable to our own? Or as a head note at the top of each chapter by the way, those head notes go nowhere in the end, and have zero relevance to the story.

The Neanderthal Parallax

So make my Paaralaje Sci-Fi greatness Ms. The conclusion to a bafflingly successful series. Robert Sawyer grew up in Toronto, the son of two university professors. Want to Read saving…. All barasts would consider themselves bisexual by the gliksin definition; they form same-sex bonds while two are not one. It wasn’t a big deal to him though.


The author slams too many massive ideas together. Jul 01, Jonathan rated it it was ok Shelves: I am definitely developing a taste for Robert J.

Yes, there were a few ideas that are pretty interesting, but they’re lumped into this giant messy heap of characters and substories that just left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Even the book’s valiant attempt to turn itself into a sort of “Case of Conscience”-lite falls flat because the religious arguments never excite.

That noted, this is great biological sci-fi, and is recommended. So I wonder if what it comes down to is this: Its not deep and despite his attempts to spice things up intellectually by including debates on religion or Neanderthal ethics or the environment, it can’t disguise that none of this is very interesting unless you are specifically invested in these characters and their travails because that is literally all the book is concerned about.

No eBook available Amazon. It is not that I object to these points being argued as possible sometimes definite demerits; it is the fact that Ponter’s human interlocutors do not seem to raise any even half-hearted attempt at explanation of long-held beliefs or the state of our world.
