Review: Monkey Talk By T. Lucas Earle

Product Details 4star

The first paragraph of this short story is pretty startling. It’s starts very basic with someone giving a speech, some internal dialogue of the speaker and he seems… human. There was no indication to suspect otherwise, but the realization is so sudden and jarring and is a great setup for the rest of the story which is about the emergence of intelligent apes and their struggle to integrate into human society. The prose is the main accomplishment in this short and the character interactions are very natural which lends to the acceptance of the ape as an intelligent being. While the ending of the story is not overly ambitious Monkey Talk is definitely thought provoking.

About Literary Titan

The Literary Titan is a book review website which consists of mostly fiction books, but we do enjoy non fiction works that we're excited about. All reviews are the reviewer’s honest opinion. We love books and read constantly (seriously, it’s an addiction). We're always open to book review requests and have aspirations of one day being sucked into the Twilight Zone episode with Burgess Meredith where all he wants to do is read, but can’t until the world ends; you know what I mean?
