The plot itself is paraalje your cliche “anthropologist from Mars” story, dripping with liberal guilt. Book three of the Hominids trilogy. Fortunately for him, his arrival is noticed by the nice research scientists at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory where he came through.

The Neanderthal Parallax

Banks Scotlandno Richard Morgan Englandn This is going to be one of those reviews where I’ll sound much more negative than I really feel, so please bear with me. View all 3 comments. The danger of speculative fiction is always the author’s visions getting in the way of plot. The thing reminds me of all the horribly outdated parts of a Robert Heinlein novel, but at least Heinlein had an excuse and knew how to write.

Hominids (Neanderthal Parallax, #1) by Robert J. Sawyer

See 1 question about Hominids…. Hybrids Neanderthal Parallax 3 by Robert J. Still, this is first-rate science fiction and it is no wonder that the book won the Hugo Award paraalje for Best Novel. Jul 16, Matthew rated it it was ok. Their world is unspoiled, ours is a hell hole.

I thought a lot of things during and after reading this book. Other books in the series. Sawyer’s novels are fun, but they are also very preachy. Then I reach the end and I feel like it could have been more.

So I actually finished the third part of the trilogy. The story here is thin and not very satisfying. Obviously the author was not. There were many joyful moments Nevertheless, the Barasts do accept religion as a part of who the gliksins are.

Much like SpinI’m kind of curious about where this Neanderthal Parallax series goes – but not enough to overcome my reservations. I loved reading the Locus Sci-Fi Award winners so I’m going to crack on with the Hugo winners next but only the post winners, I’ll follow up with pre another time. So what’s new with Hybrids?

Occasionally, the author seems to insert an idea he likes too much to pass up, even if pxralaje doesn’t fit.

It is heavily implied that the barast did not spread to large areas of their world until after they had achieved a high level of civilization. Sawyer Volume 1 of Neanderthal parallax. It — like its author — is just okay. To create a series or add a work to it, go to a “work” page. I really don’t see how an extremely uncomfortably graphic depiction of a woman’s rape in the first book was remotely necessary, unless you count the ridiculous castration of the rapist leading to some kind of epiphany about the “cure” for violent urges in males being the removal of testosterone.

Sorry this is kind of harsh but I really wish somebody had told me these things before I spent money on this. All barasts would consider themselves bisexual by the gliksin definition; they form same-sex bonds while two are not one. If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg.


Even the Captain Science portion of the book fails. Ultimately, though, I was a little disappointed given the awards and attention this book has received.

In an alternate universe Neanderthals survived instead of our branch of the evolutionary tree. The contrast of the worlds was especially poignent in the first book, Hominids, when every chapter conveyed simultaneous events in each of the parallel worlds.

Therefore, it appears to be awesome. Neanderthal Parallax 3 books. The first chapter just sucked me right in. I thought Flashforward was generally good, if a little mediocre in term of prose neandertyal a silly ending. And Ponter becomes an instant celebrity on Earth. This seems to weaken the comparison or argument that mankind might consider its own relationship to violence.

Therefore, I am rating the series as a whole, so that those who are interested in the series know what to expect. While this could be an important plot point in its own right, the way Sawyer included it at the end of the book turns it into an afterthought and undermines the intriguing ideas he advanced in Humans about the link between consciousness and Earth’s magnetic field.

The book itself was good, but I took one remarkable thing from it, something I consider every time E talk about “work”, more than a decade later. Sawyer is just okay, and Hominids is equally okay. It’s a little demoralizing.
