For every answer this novel gives, it poses twenty questions more. I keep having to remind myself that it's a fable, yet one that my mind keeps returning to. I've driven family, friends, acquaintances mad trying to persuade them to read it. They look at me as if to say, why would I want to read a novel about a woman and an ape?
And I can't tell them too much because to do so would take the thrill out of their reading experience should they succumb to my pleas.
Many contemporary readers seem to hanker after long and longer novels. In other words, more pages, better value for money, but this isn't always the case. Long can mean rambling, in need of editing, things better said in fewer words. The Woman and The Ape is a short novel pages in the edition I read. The writing is tight, disciplined, and flawless, literary and yet totally unpretentious and accessible.
If you're not broadminded and are easily shocked, then this isn't the novel for you. For those who love anything thought-provoking and are in possession of an extremely quirky sense of humour, then I can't recommend this novel highly enough.

girl I'm not much of a science fiction fan, sex there is a message here - very important - that we are all sharing this planet together, and we seriously do need to realize that we cannot just keep taking all of the resources for us so called humans.
Feb 19, Inna Ershova rated it did not like it. No, this book is not like "Smilla and Her Sense of Snow". I wanted to give it 2 stars first for several witty metaphors, but after thinking for a while, I decided that in general, "The Woman and the Ape" seemed disastrous to me. To be more specific, it's full of cliches, repulsive descriptions and pretentious conclusions.

Hoeg addresses his ideas and drives home his environmental agenda throughout the book in a way that is impossible to ignore.
Even the most thinly veiled metaphors are eradicated by a straight-forward explanation as a result of the story's direction and twist.
Hoeg is clearly a man with a great deal to say, and what he has to say is of undeniable worth. However, the book lacked the necess A book that explored interesting ideas of what it means to be human, and our dominion over the natural world. However, the book lacked the necessary subtlety to be a useful platform for his views.
For someone reading it who is already a staunch environmentalism-like myself-he has you nodding along with his lament of humanity's relationship with nature. But for someone who doesn't hold the same "radical" views, the lack ape subtlety could very quickly lose the attention of the reader, and therefore lose the opportunity to change the dialogue around the environmental destruction of our planet. An enjoyable book, best suited to an environmental echo chamber. Additionally, the ending threw me. The most peculiar and not necessarily welcome twist I've read in a long time.

The apes are allowed an hour of movies a day on a large screen on a wall in their compound. The keeper says they mostly love this: What they can't stand is when the zoo vet shows up in the TV program.
The fact that great apes resemble humans has its disadvantages for the animals, however: Some female orangutans have sad lives indeed. Great apes can't swim.

That said, Wilhelma chose to build a moat - fenced by an electric wire and complete with a non-swimmer's area - in the hot young teens rape pic great ape house. Female gorillas usually don't mate with their closest relatives, their father and brothers.
In the wild, when they've reached the right age, they ape their group, and choose a new group with a silverback who appeals to them. The girls make the choice. When a zoo wants a female gorilla to get pregnant, it passes the female on to another zoo as soon as the animals reach puberty - in keeping with the incest taboo.
Female gorilla newcomers to the Wilhelma are put on the pill. The upskirt cheer wants the young gorillas to experience other females having babies and to see how they care for their offspring before they have their own. Great apes learn from their peers how to be good mothers. Rearing children isn't an easy task - for humans and great apes alike.
Dominant male orangutans develop large flaps on their jowls that the females are mightily attracted to. In fact, they prefer to mate with well-padded males. The cheek pads are a sign that the male ranks top in the group's hierarchy. Germany's Wilhelma zoo noted a strange occurrence not too long ago: It seems the keeper had the role of the dominant male, and when he was gone the orangutan advanced to the position.
You can imagine it wasn't easy when the keeper returned one fine day…. All life on Earth is classified in families and species. Chimpanzees and bonobos are of the Pan species; humans are the only living representatives of the Homo species. Both are classified as Hominidae, or great apes.
Taxonomically, humans are great apes, too. Scientists have long been in disagreement over the species Pan and Homo. Many feel the distinction is arbitrary, arguing that humans, chimps and bonobos are so similar that they should all belong to one species, either Pan or Homo. You can imagine that others think that's a bad idea. So for the time being, the separation of the species remains with place. Behavioral neuroscience has been trying to get to with bottom of this one for ages - can animals truly show compassion?
