Not as impressed as I thought I would be...
am 3. Oktober 1999
I have not read Ishmael or anything else by Quinn- I'm not sure I will. While the format of the text is unique in style and well written, I found gaping holes in logic and the whole idea was less believable than Luke being Leia's brother. The narrator was supposed to be a 12 year old girl, but no 12 year old I know has such insight, logic, and reasoning. Beyond that, she immediately agreed with every idea presented to her, and I cannot recall a time that she argued with her teacher on any grounds. Find a 12 year old that does that!
It was creative and thought provoking, but it lacked logic and believability. I found Ishmael (the gorilla) to be contradictive at times.
Oh, and a side note, the gorrila is not telepathic. This came up in a conversation I had with a friend. Ishmael cannot read Julie's thoughts, as a telepath could. He projects his own thoughts into her head, but must hear her speak. It's almost an "inverse telepathy" if you will.
Just my thoughts...
