    Reread July 2017 for my SF Group Just as good the second time around A very thoughtful and well thought out book A Different Flesh is actually a linked series of stories about an alternate history in which homo erectus survived and peopled North America Although each story stands on its own and can be enjoyed on that basis, they get increasingly sophi...

    Outstanding alternate history In short stories Turtledove creates an alternative history populated by believable characters and events which also examine historic and current practices in our culture The titular characters are Homo Erectus like subhumans who inhabit the New World instead of the native humans actually found there The altered natural and cultural impacts are explored.Samuel Pepys is so well drawn that he was recognized, by one who d read his diary, before revealed His developm Outstanding alternate history In short stories Turtledove creates an alternative history populated by believable characters and events which also examine historic and current practices in our culture The titular characters...

    This is one of the most thought provoking books I have ever read This is not a single novel, but rather a series of short stories on a single theme That theme is a species of primates discovered in America, which are just called, Simps The first story begins with the English beginning to colonize America in the 1600 s Much to their suprise, they discover a species of ape which walks on it s two hind legs, covered with short hair, and is very gentle It looks almost human, but does not speak This is one of the most thought provoking books I have ever read This is not a single novel, but rather a series of short stories on a single theme That theme is a species of primates discovered in America, which are just called, Simps The first story begins with the English beginning to colonize America in the 1600 s Much to their suprise, they discover a species of ape which walks on it s two hind legs, covered with ...

    I enjoyed the book The individual stories chapters were well put together, and showed a pattern of progress over time with regard to human rights and sim homoerectus rights Slavery of blacks ended much earlier, and in apeaceful way in the book, than in our history The author implied that with another species of less intelligent humans around the differences in our races and cultures are not significant enough to allow people to justify slavery of other humans as long as occurred in I enjoyed the book The individual stories chapters were well put together, and showed a pattern of progress over time with regard to human rights and sim homoerectus rights Slavery of blacks ended much earlier, and in apeaceful way in the book, than in our history The author implied that with another species of less intelligent humans around the differences in our races and cultures are not significant enough to allow people to justify slavery of other humans as long as occurred in our history I think maybe that is a simplistic view of the issue, but maybe that was for the readers benefit to make the story less complicated The only thing that really bothered me about the book, was they way each section was written like an independent st...

    This is a collection of a series of chronological short stories set on an Earth where the Homo Erectus of East Asia colonized the Americas while Homo Sapiens were still evolving in Africa Homo Erectus remained the dominant species in the Americas until Columbus discovered the western Hemisphere The stories begin with Jamestown colony and progress through an alternative American history where Amerindians never colonized As a result the Homo Eructus hunter gatherers survive until discovery in t This is a collection of a series of chronological short stories set on an Earth where the Homo Erectus of East Asia colonized the Americas while Homo Sapiens were still evolving in Africa Homo Erectus remained the dominant species in the Americas until Columbus discovered the western Hemisphere The stories begin with Jamestown colony and progress through an alternative American history where Amerindians never colonized As a result the Homo Eructus hunter gatherers survive until discovery in the simian primale state and they are called sims for short by the English colonists With an upright human posture and a relative IQ nearly on par with a f...

    An interesting and thought provoking concept Story was OK I have read dozens of Turtledove s books and though the basis of the storyline was intriguing, the story was just average.

    The flickering firelight revealed the awe on Charles s face That awe was there even though he was of the third generation of sims to grow up as part of Virginia In the wild, sims used fire if they came across it, and kept it alive as best they could, but they could not start one To Charles, Kenton s simple tools conveyed a power that must have felt godlike As with The Years of Rice and Salt, an intriguing alternative history theme European c...
