Wow! What a fun ride. I flew through this novel and enjoyed every second of the adventure and intrigue. If you’re a fan of dystopian genres or just want to read an excellent, creative, and thought provoking novel-this is the read for you! -Amazon Review
Two strangers, a man and a woman, meet on a deserted island, where neither remembers when or how they arrived. Eventually they realize they’re undergoing a deliberate unorthodox experiment.
Omar and Shadia are continually exposed to hazards that reveal their true selves. Their captors’ research explores which experiences can transform a regular individual into a fearless superhero, and what it takes to force that same person into submission, becoming an obedient puppet.
Neanderthals: The Experiment is a disturbing novel, one that questions modern humans’ assumption that we stand at the pinnacle of development. Not only a thrilling adventure, the story focuses on a person’s most difficult choice: that between freedom and safety. Omar and Shadia’s love is triggered by an ultimate hardship, while the story’s theme delves into human pride—how the instant we face a hard choice can lead us to throw our old fears behind.
From the moment I started the book it was a page turner for sure. The author was descriptive, but still had the fast paced style that kept me hooked and wanting to keep flipping every page to find out what was going to happen. I highly recommend this book! It was a creative and thoughtful idea, executed brilliantly. Five stars from me! -Amazon Review
