4.0 su 5 stelle An Excellent Companion to the First Three Films 24 marzo 2016
Di RDD - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
The first three "Planet of the Apes" films have a tenuous link based on shared characters, but their overall approach and tones are completely different. This makes sense, as Pierre Boulle's original novel was a standalone book and, while the 1968 film changed several details, it retained that sense of closure with the final twist giving away the author's message. In "Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes", Andrew E.C. Gaska links the three films with a story set during the original movie. He focuses on John Landon, who had disappeared for some time following the crash in the film and thereby offers an opportunity to explore more of the Ape's world. With flashbacks to Landon's early career, Gaska links the astronaut to the physicist Dr. Otto Hasslein, who appeared in the third film, "Escape from the Planet of the Apes". Finally, Landon serves as an unwitting mole in Ape City, controlled via long distance telepathy by the mutants from "Beneath the Planet of the Apes". Gaska's writing is more than up to the task of the legacy he has inherited and the accompanying art from the likes of Jim Steranko, Joe Jusko, Andrew Probert, Dave Dorman, Chandra Free, Lucas Graciano, and more adds to the overall feel of the narrative. The title refers to the conspiracy led by Dr. Zaius to suppress any information that might threaten Ape society and the overall tone of paranoia compliments elements from the films. Though the book contains mild spoilers for the three films, it should be a necessary companion volume as it serves an essential purpose in building up the connections between the films.
5.0 su 5 stelle A beautiful, well-written, and layered masterpiece.of Sci-Fi 4 settembre 2016

This was the most fun I've ever had reading a novel. As a fan of the 5 original Planet of the Apes films, this spoke to me. Every page is like a love letter to fans of the franchise. Conspiracy does something that is truly marvelous. It not only does well in recapping the original films but manages to expand upon them. It shows more of the characters, of the plot, and even succeeds in fixing some of the plot holes found in the films.

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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Exactly What the Classic Series Needed 11 luglio 2013
Di Collin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
For those of you who are fans of the classic Planet of the Apes films, this little nugget is the perfect companion piece. Written through the eyes of several minor characters from the first film, this novel tackles some heavy issues that were only briefly mentioned and further flushes them out into fully realized plot points integral to the timeline of the apes. What's nice about this book is that it gently weaves its way through the original story without disrupting anything already established. It doesn't go back and rewrite things to suit it, but rather writes around things to enhance their dimensions. As an avid Plant of the Apes fan, I found this to be exactly what the classic series needed; a breath of fresh air. The book doesn't feature any crazy monsters, helicopters or snow monsters that have managed to penetrate the Apes realm, but rather, at first glace, simple characters who develop throughout the novel as interesting and conflicted people/apes who we as the readers want to know more about. While the ultimate end is always on the horizon (spoiler! Taylor blows the Earth up), it's the journey there that's really the best part and I'm sure Mr. Gaska will provide us readers with a few more novels about how we get there. Until then, start at the beginning and relive the classic story from a new perspective.

5.0 su 5 stelle Filling in the Gaps of the Apes Franchise 2 gennaio 2013
Di Guitarist of the Midwest - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
When this was pointed out to me it was billed as a book about the character of Landon and a chronicle of his adventures leading to a tie-up of some plot-holes in the Apes franchise. What it is, instead, is a build-up of a lot of characters leading to a background story that would have been more fascinating than any of last 3 Apes sequels and either television series. From Dr. Galen (the ape who was helping Zira save Taylor) to Milo (the ape barely introduced in Escape From The Planet Of The Apes ), and of course the ridiculously deep character of Dr. Zaius these characters are all given more to look at. We get more of General Ursus as well as a few other gorillas who never had much representation in the films. We get love, betrayal, political manipulation, and even some economical glances that are all put into context of the ape society that we only got a tiny glimpse of onscreen.

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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Bravo!!!! A wonderful contribution to POTA lore. 15 settembre 2011
Di Boz - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
The writers have proven themselves truly worthy of being added to the canon of POTA lore. The 1968 film and movie together with this illustrated novel equal a Directors cut of the POTA as it would have deserved to be. I feel I am truly getting to know more about Taylor(Hestons)counterpart John Landon and Dodge. I know I should have waited until I finished the book but I am so excited about what I have read so far that I couldn't stay silent. The artist depictions are consistent with what we know from the movies and at times, when depicting certain events are very disturbing.

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.
