A Book Review, by sirpeterjamesdotcom
This book, for me, was a very appealing read. Aside of the many pages of scientific technicality (Bryan Sykes is after all, – a scientist and not a novelist). Yet, I thought, considering the scientific information that was required to explain how he and his team achieved what they did, he managed very well in keeping me glued to the pages. Toward the end of the book I was rewarded by seven chapters of novel styled writing, which gave me an insight into how the seven daughters of Eve could have experienced their earthly term.
