Product Details

'If you love animals like I do, it's a must read.' -- Ellen DeGeneres, host of the Ellen Show 'had me instantly enraptured' -- Dallas Morning News 20100912 'Gruen's astute, wildly entertaining tale of interspecies connection is a novel of verve and conscience - the fate of the bonobos is a brilliantly satirical surprise.' -- Booklist (starred review) 20100912 'It is a page-turner written with flair, imagination and a sharp sense of irony.' -- Globe and Mail 20100910 'Very, very few novels can change the way you look at the world around you. This one does.' -- Robert Goolrick, author of A Reliable Wife 20100910 'Consider reality TV, meth labs, over-the-top animal-rights activists, Botox, tabloids and Internet diatribes, and you, too, might come to the conclusion: People should be more like animals. Sara Gruen's entertaining, enlightening new novel will certainly leave you thinking so.' -- Miami Herald 20100905 'Has the dramatic tension of a crime thriller...

Reviews

'Gruen writes about her animal characters with energy and empathy. . . . [she] has a lovely, noticing eye. Fron tiny silver flecks drifting off champagne cork foil, to a dogbowl sliding away from a rescued pit bill, there is plenty of surface detail to detain the reader.' * Financial Times * 'enlightening and believable' * Guardian * 'Ape House is a moving account of a close bond between human and ape - and human and human too.' * Take a Break (Fiction Feast) * Propulsive... Gruen writes with the commercial breathlessness of a cozier Dan Brown. * Entertainment Weekly * Gruen delivers a tale that's full of heart, hope, and compelling questions about who we really are. * Redbook * The biggest accomplishment of Ape House is that it brings bonobos to life. The writing is effortless, as though Gruen sat down and wrote the book in one breezy afternoon. * Vanessa Woods, New Scentist * Ape House is difficult to put down, filled as it is with genuine hilarity and heartbreak. * Toronto Star * Has the dramatic tension of a crime thriller...

Or perhaps 24.... A twisting pacy plot . . . vivid page-turner . . . mining the same literary vein as Jodi Picoult and TC Boyle whose strong, conflicted characters and ethically charged plots deliver brilliant but challenging fiction. * James Urquhart, Independent * DON'T MISS YOUR BUS STOP . . . reading this week's talking-point book, Ape House by Water for Elephants author Sara Gruen. It's a funny, provocative lampoon of pop culture, about a group of sign-language-speaking bonobo monkeys who are liberated from a science lab, only to wind up on a reality TV show. * Grazia *
