    I haven't finished this book yet but I probably won't because it sucks First of all it's supposed to be a novel but it's entirely didactic The author has simply substituted this gorilla to preach at us in the author's voice The viewpoint character is simple minded and vacuous to the point of not existing In fact he's just there as the foil or receptacle for the gorilla's teachings The central thesis of the gor

Nder branch You are the teacher he asks incredulously I am the teacher the gorilla replies Ishmael is a creature of immense wisdom and he has a story to tell one that no other human being has ever heard It is a story that extends backward and forward over the lifespan of the earth from the birt The reason I like uinn s style in Ishmael is that he doesn t assume a pedantic perch atop humanity and force feed a philosophically driven A Z laundry list of how to make yourself a better human being and save the world one person at a time mantra down the reader s throat His style of writing is intimate Reading Ishmael kind of reminds you of sitting in lecture with that one professor in college whose class you earnestly enjoyed and looked forward to attending each week those lectures where you felt as if taking notes was of an inconvenient distraction than simply opening your ears and listening for 60 minutes You got out of it by just sitting there like a blob taking it all in as opposed to fretting over particulars You can tell uinn is or was a good teacher A good teacher defined as one who guides hisher students to the answers to their uestions not one who regurgitates spoon feeds or paraphrases concepts principles and opinions down your throat systematically Like Ishmael s narrator I too found myself excited to come back each day via turning the next page to learn another part of the story What I find fascinating about this book is the power of its seemingly simplistic message Man unto himself is temporal phenomenon uinn doesn t waste his time extrapolating the myriad of problems that affect our world to make his point He doesn t bother to persuade or guilt the reader into action with doomsday scenarios statistics outcomes or make sententious arguments to bolster his credibility as a thinker Instead he plainly examines the most basic function of the human species and how the organization of its functionality became well dysfunctional Regardless of whether you factor God evolution or little green men into your respective paradigm to help you make sense of humanity its purpose and ultimate destiny refuting the message in this book is unreasonable Human beings are the most evolved intelligent and capable species on the planet As such we find ourselves amidst a paradox We are progenitor to the earth as well as the root source of its impending or at least eventual devastation Ishmael is not a book whose scope is easily confined to the adverse effects of humanity on the environment or excess population or invasion of one civilization by another throughout history or how we re killing the polar bear into extinction etc Its message is simply that man has forgotten his place in the order of nature in a very large context and that happened the moment man was cognizant of his innate ability to differentiate good vs evil as a species As a result man began to use that acumen as an instinctual instrument to serve as justification for what lives and what dies pursuant to ensuring his unlimited growth at any expense KL Banned in Britain replies Ishmael is a creature of immense wisdom and he has a story to tell one that no other human being has
