Ape House Ch 13-25

Ch 13-25 of Ape House

1. Would you watch or be tempted to watch a show like Ape House?
Yes I'm sure I would tune in but once I realized what it was all about I would be pretty upset. I think its horrible the way they are treated and how thy are making it about the sexual conduct.

2. Do you think John did the right thing by quitting his job and moving to L.A.?
Yes, I think it was right. His boss was wrong to give Cat his article and I think John should find a new employer and be with his wife.

3. We haven't seen a whole lot of Isabel in this section, but what do you think of Peter now that we know more about him?
I think Peter is a lying, no good scumbag. He lied about his prior "experiments". He lied about being faithful to Isabel. I'm thinking he lied about knowing what happened to the apes. I really dislike him.

4. Can John turn the ape story for the tabloid into something he is proud of? Is he getting a little bit of redemption by being assigned to his dream story again even if it is for a tabloid?
John is defineatly getting redemption with this story. I believe he will be very proud of his work and I think it's gonna end up in the times not the tabloid. It's going to be to good of a story.

5. Have your thoughts on John and Amanda's marriage changed since last week? Where do you see their marriage headed?
I think they love each other but I still don't think it's gonna work. Of something first happen with Isabel I think thy are going to split die to the differences they have. I don't believ John wants children and I think L.A. is changing Amanda.

6. What do you think will end up happening to the apes?
I think Isabel is going to save them but I think a tragedy is going to happen first.

Ape House Questions Chapters 1-12

1. What was your initial reaction to the idea of a language lab with bonobos who are capable of having conversations with humans?
I was very shocked at how the apes could communicate! Its amazing how they underfoot what the people were signing/saying to them. They responded back so well.

2. Isabel said early in the book that the apes know they're apes and know that the humans are humans, but they don't see any superiority with either... What do you think the major difference is between the two?
I think the big difference is that the apes love and care about everyone equally there's no difference between the species to them. Whereas the humans just see them as animals.

3. What are your thoughts on John and his feelings toward Isabel? How do you think their relationship will play out?
I think John connects with her on a deeper level than he realizes. I think they might end up together as the book goes on.

4. How do you think Isabel will respond to the apes being taken?
Isabel is going to be angry and heartbroken. I think she's going to fight to find them and get them back.

5. Do you think Celia is part of the team that ambushed the learning center?
I think Celia could have originally been part of the group but once she seen how things were with the apes I believe she opted out. I think she cares for the apes and Isabel.

6. What are your thoughts on John and his relationship with Amanda?
I don't believe their relationship is going to make it. Once she moves I think they are just going to separate more and more. They just don't seem right together.
