I suppose the most unique aspect of this novel is the roster of characters. Many of them are characters that, while being in the films, only played minor roles. Seeing characters like Galen, Dr. Milo, and Landon be the main focus was a genius decision by the author. These characters range to being anywhere from enduring to tragic. While all are interesting, the most compelling of all of them is Landon. In the film, it is made quite clear that him and Taylor were opposites. Luckily, the author was well aware of this. The '68 film was a story of a pessimist to an optimist in the case of Taylor. This novel brilliantly tells the story of an optimist becoming beastly and non-human in the case of Landon. Seeing him stoop to the level he does at the end is really heartbreaking.
Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes is genius. My only complaint is it hasn't had a sequel, yet. I heard rumors of a sequel that would tell what happened to Taylor during Beneath the Planet of the Apes. I think that would be a brilliant idea! I really hope the author, Andrew Gaska, makes this novel someday. It's clear he is a fantastic writer that has lots of talent and passion for the Apes franchise.
The main characters can definitely be whittled down to a select few. Don't get me wrong, its a lot for a book this length and will bother some, but its great. If you're looking for a specified character study or a real human protagonist you will be very disappointed, if you are looking for expansion this will work out just fine.
Landon is indeed the main character to a degree. He is introduced as more prominent than Taylor development-wise, and through him we see more of Earth's foray into interplanetary exploration (Mars, Jupiter, hibernation sickness, etc...). He is presented as the first link to the civilization in the ruins of New York City as well, and helps with their story in the second film. He also links to Milo and the Icarus, which helps explain how the franchise lead beyond 2 films.
Marcus, gorilla leader of the secret police in Ape City, is one of our other protagonists. He is the first real gorilla character to receive development beyond just a soldier. We see a family dinner, we see interaction with other soldiers and even the desire for raising up a replacement so he can retire. For a gorilla character we see someone willing to self-sacrifice and to take control but also to play the game when faced with the orangutan political leaders or his superior, Ursus. His father issues come into play and make for a fascinating character, possibly my favorite of the novel.
Galen is one of the other big characters in this book. Many of you will be able to remember the chimpanzee that complained about work space and funding while stitching up Taylor in the first film. Here we see a mad scientist who wants to be able to transplant human organs to simians, therefore removing the need for same species organ donors and giving humans a purpose in ape society. He is seen butchering them into pieces and even gets a grisly scene where he removes a head but leaves enough of the arteries and such attached that it can remain alive for a few minutes, all in the name of science. His wife, Liet, and her half-gorilla lover (whose name escapes me at the moment) lead to not only a love triangle, but a strong and exciting conclusion to 3 storylines all at once.
Milo is the final character to receive a lot of attention. The only one who believes that Taylor and Landon came from the stars, his slight friendship (sort of ) with Landon and his work on different things around the city create a good backstory for him that the 3rd film just didn't go into. It ties up a massive plot hole within the franchise as well, but I won't spoil it for you.
This was a great study and I'm hoping for a second book that ties together some issues with the last half of the franchise. Cheers to a well done novel with simply stunning artwork by several comic book artists.
If you have seen the move you know the writers unfold events in wonderful sequential order so you are never lost as too what is going on. Their is even a little mix of the mutants of Beneath the Planet of the apes hat is done rationally and insightful and fits the overall story like a glove.
As I said, I am only halfway thru, but I am hoping that some insights on Dr Zaius, defender of the faith, keeper of the terrible secret are maybe a page or two away. But if Dr Zaius is not dealt with in depth as other characters are, I would only hope it would spur the writers to further write another book dealing with only with Dr Zaius for what he is, why he is and everything else about his role in the simian society.
Apeophiles, you will get your moneys worth from this wonderful book. I can only hope they have something else in the hoppper waiting to astound us. But I will let you in on a secret. The Conspiracy of the books Title, can only refer to the extraordinary writing and love the books authors put into it.
Thanks guys and keep it up. And dont stop.
