Ape House

Sara Gruen’s latest book, Ape House, is now out in paperback and I just finished it. As with her other books, there is a strong animal theme. She captures the human like characteristics of the bonobos, particularly their communication skills.  Ape House, is more of a mystery novel than her previous works.  In addition to the central characters, John Thigpen and Isabel Duncan, there are a myriad of others, both animal and human.  It was a good read, but I did not enjoy it as much as her other books. Now, I am looking forward to her previous book, Water for Elephants, being released as a movie next weekend.
