Planet of the Apes (Vintage Classics) by Pierre Boulle
3.0 out of 5 stars Memorable, 16 Jun 2014
I have lost count how many times I have watched the film 'Planet of the Apes', the original 1968 film and I always wanted to read the book and I was pleased to see it was released in the kindle edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh!, 16 Jun 2014
This is the final instalment of 'The Women of the Otherworld' and I had always dreaded the series ending but after reading '13' I am glad it has come to a end. As with the previous two books, Savannah is the main character and despite a huge change in her life, she has not changed for the better.

The redeeming feature of the book was Elena, Clay, Jeremy, Paige and Lucas, I enjoyed reading their points of view. The book has a lot of excitement which is good and keeps you entertained. The downside is the changes to a character which are very sudden changes which I found frustrating.

I am glad I read 'The Women of the Otherworld' and I will re~read the earlier books… Read more
