  • Go ahead and yuck it upbut I ll have you know these books were my only friend that long lonely summer when I was thirteen and stuck on my grandparent s farm in the middle of South Dakota with nobody to talk to except a fat shetland pony who chewed her oats and stared all drowsy eyed at me and a dog named Brownie who refused to learn to shake And I had the coolest Planet of the Apes sweatshirt I d give up my Planet of the Apes lunch Box to get that sweatshirt backwell no, no I wouldn t I saw them [...]

  • A few years after he wrote his very strange novel, Black in Time about Black Power militants using a time machine to change history, John Jakes got a paycheck for writing the novelization of the most racially loaded of the Planet of the Apes films, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes Released in 1972, just four years after than one hundred American cities erupted into race riots following the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King the movie and book kicks off back in time, with apes serving as s [...]

  • Ugly and hate filled, the Conquest of the Planet of the Apes novel lacks all of the subtlety and nuance of the film After living a life in hiding in Armando s circus super intelligent chimpanzee Caesar visits a metropolitan city and learns that humans have enslaved apes and brutally mistreat them, leading Caesar to stage a rebellion Author John Jakes goes to extremes to paint humans as monstrous villains, and by the end even Caesar becomes a callous egotist who sees other apes as animals There s [...]

  • Rise of the Planet of the Apes blew me away It is by far my favorite film of the year, or many years for that matter I am a huge movie tie in novelization addict, and since Conquest is sort of the Rise of the original film series, I had to track down a copy of the novelization.I have always enjoyed reading John Jakes I first became aware of him at a young age when I read his Brak the Barbarian novels Conan ripoffs to be sure, but I loved them at 12 or 13 and devoured them Later on I read The Bas [...]

  • A fantastic read that was perfect as a commentary for the times when it was published To be fair, it was a novelization of the movie, yet it used the original, darker ending that was omitted from the film The novel cuts better What s even better, and profoundly sad, is that this book is still relevant today in the age of Trump and the white supremacists he surrounds himself with and motivates A book for our timesrhaps a handbook

  • I like this book As I write that, I notice my shoulders reflexively squaring and my expression shifting into defiant So what mode Admittedly, the writing is uneven, but there are moments in this book of intense drama and conflict The writing is only passable, but I think the way that the subject matter is dealt with was masterful It almost feels like a comic book conflict epic and profound and maybe a little ridiculous, too.

  • Probably where i first got my disgust for both slavery animal abuse This is not subtle, but it is a clever premise and holds undeniable appeal to see the fascists of the future get stomped by a bunch of pissed off simians.

  • one the best of the screenplay adaptations, this is the most violent obviously based on the first cut off conquest which was re edited definitely worth reading.
