Book Review: The Brothers Cro-Magnon by Roger Pepper

The Brothers Cro-Magnon was not what I had hoped it would be, but I still think that it is a great idea for a novel, and that many would enjoy this book. I was hoping to start the year off with a bang, but so far, I have read 2 poopers and this “OK” book.  My to read pile looks promising however, and it is my hope that I will be reading some amazing stories this coming week.

The Brothers Cro-Magnon

by Roger Pepper
TrekkerPress (2014) Paperback, 324 pages

I didn’t love or hate this book- I enjoyed various aspects of the story, while at times, I felt that
certain points of the dialog were either unnecessary, or bloated. The story revolves around a small, clandestine  group  of  scientists producing Cro-magnon/Human hybrids, as well as some Mammoths, via insemination of frozen, ancient sperm is a stretch, but leaves room for an exciting, or at the least, entertaining story. This book may have just been ok for me, but I can see how it would appeal to many readers of Michael Crichton. I really believe that if the writing was a little more cohesive, and the story tightened up some, this would be a 4 star book, because it is a great idea, just not executed as well as I had hoped.

*** (3 out of 5)

When I wasn’t wishing for a better book, I was listening to The Bad Brains – Rock for Light. This was produced by Ric Ocasek of The Cars, and when the volume is raised, it will send chills up your spine.
