Discovered by chance browsing in the library, this is a fascinating and deeply intelligent book. It also introduced me to a remarkably and wonderful writer.

I think this is in all ways the very best novel I have ever read (-aged 62).

1.0 out of 5 stars Only one earrring received, 25 Nov. 2014

These earrings arrived (eventually) with just one earring and a broken bit of wire - presumably the hook from the missing earring. Unwearable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Whose reproduction?, 11 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For an ordinary reader this wasn't always an easy read, but I followed it pretty well and am glad I made the effort - the whole dabate on whether or not EarlyHumans and Neandethals interbred has interested me for years, but till now the arguments have been just from the fossil research. It's always interesting when a puzzle finds a resolution. But honestly, Svante Paabo - this is not an appropriate place for details of your own sexual history! Somebody should have had a quiet talk with you before publishing. It isn't your reproductive behaviour that the public is interested in, believe it or not.

Wonderful book - have read it twice already. It's like reading a poem. Makes me want to kiss Colm Toibin.
