Hominids

Robert J. Sawyer has written the most delightful book! Why can't all authors who write about other cultures do this kind of rigorous in-depth research? Hominids takes sophisticated paleoanthropological data, cutting-edge theoretical physics, and characters that will warm your heart, and mixes them into a charming, witty, and provocative novel. Hard-bitten anthropologists may or may not agree with Rob's slant on "The Neanderthal Question" but they as well as anyone who is interested in what it is to be human will be enchanted by Ponter and Adikor, the story's charming protagonists. Hominids is anthropological fiction at its best.

Hominids

I own every book Sawyer has written, from The Terminal Experiment, FlashForward, and Calculating God to his latest and greatest, Hominids. Sawyer's books — always rich in science, action, and profound thinking — never fail to surprise, delight, and cause us to transcend our ordinary thoughts. I've read Crichton, Asimov, Heinlein, Clarke, King, and Koontz — and Sawyer outdoes them all.

Robert Charles Wilson on

Hominids

Rob Sawyer has carried the banner of Asimovian science-fiction into the 21st century. Hominids is based in cutting-edge contemporary science — paleoanthropology, quantum computing, neutrino astronomy, among others — and furnished at the same time with touching human (and parahuman) stories. Precise, detailed, and accomplished. The next volume is eagerly anticipated.

Jane Fancher on

Hominids

Robert J. Sawyer's Hominids hits another SF home run: an utterly intriguing conceptual seed, solid state-of-the-broadband-scientific-art theory, challenging social consciousness, and characters you want to take home for dinner.
