    Sam, Bonzi, Lola, Mbongo, Jelani, and Makena are no ordinary apes. These bonobos know American Sign Language. Isabel Duncan, a scientist at the Great Ape Language Lab, doesn’t understand people, but animals she gets—especially the bonobos. Isabel feels more comfortable in their world than she’s ever felt among humans...until she meets John Thigpen, a very married reporter who braves the ever-present animal rights protesters outside the lab to see what’s really going on inside.

    "Female characterizations detract"
    Overall

    I kept listening because I was intrigued by the ape story and wanted to see it through to the end. I was never pulled in by the human story and was annoyed by all female (human and ape) dialogue. The narrator must feel that all women sound pouty or bored whenever they speak.
