    1. I won this book in a First Reads giveaway, thanks Roger!This was a very entertaining read and I enjoyed it. The story was original and kept me wanting to find out more. Obviously, the reader has to have a suspension of disbelief but if you read a lot of fiction then that shouldn't be an issue. The writing for the most part was good, there were a few mistakes and some parts that didn't seem to flow with the rest of the language, but it was overall very well done. Corky was a great character. She [...]


    2. Roger Pepper is a retired aerospace materials engineer and his “The Brothers Cro-Magnon” is an imaginative attempt at melding prehistoric elements with modern environmental and biological science. It’s an adventurous quest that’s often attempted but seldom ends with any authenticity. Pepper has done better than many others.The plot of this novel, exploring the use of both human and animal sperm (that has been preserved in pure ice from prehistoric times) in impregnating modern humans and [...]


    3. Where do my book ideas come from? During a flight from Moscow to Kazakhstan, it struck me how beautiful the Tien Shan Mountains looked all decked in white and how ugly they could become with global warming. But what about when the permafrost melts in Siberia, now there really had to be a story there. Gradually, Corky Mason, the heroine of The Brothers Cro-Magnon, came into being and told me the story of how she fell in love with a baby mammoth and came within a polar bear’s whisker of being a [...]


    4. I did not win this book on First reads. The author contacted me in order to send me his book. I am very glad that he did!! This is an awesome story. It's a little violent and action-packed, but with a lot of touching moments in between. When I was unable to read this book, I continually wondered what was going to happen next and did not want the story to end. The characters are well done and the scenery descriptions makes you, almost, think you are in Siberia in your mind. I could picture every [...]


    5. Liked this book. I would rate it 3.5-4. Sort of Incredible the Russians found "sperm" on a frozen Female and were able to impregnate modern women with it AND to raise 4 cro-magnon brothers and mammoths in a secret facility in Russia.


    6. An Editor could make this a five-star read “We’re all clay, created by evolution and molded by life on Earth.” – Dr. Stu Uhlig, The Brothers Cro-Magnon  “The tissue cut clearly shows blood vessels with strong walls. Inside the vessels there is haemolysed blood, where for the first time we have found erythrocytes. Muscle and adipose tissues are well preserved. We have also obtained very well visualised migrating cells of the lymphoid tissue, which is another great discovery. The upper [...]

    8. Roger Pepper is a retired aerospace materials engineer with a love of science, travel, The Brothers Karamazov, the Arctic, Cro-Magnons, woolly mammoths and all sorts of cool things (and really, really cold things!).If you love woolly mammoths, elephants and all things prehistoric and big, this novel is a must-read. Never mind that willing suspension of disbelief is a gargantuan “must” as well. Sure, there’s a lot of poetic license going on here, but as the award-winning speculative novelis [...]


    9. I really enjoyed this book. The concept was very intriguing and even though some people believe the idea to be too far fetched, especially for the time period the inseminations were to have taken place, I believe anything is possible. Technology released to the public is always behind the technology the government has, and governments of all countries are always performing experiments that the public has no idea is happening. That being said, I thought that it was great that Corky was a strong f [...]


    10. This proved to be an exciting book, using prehistoric animals and Cro-Magnon man and blending it with modern day scientific approaches.Corky, a reporter from New York, is on her way to Siberia, to find out about her parents who were killed when she was young. Once there, she finds out that she might be one of the Cro-Magnon experiments, a sister along with three brothers. She goes in search of finding the real truth, finds that mammoths have been created as well. Corky finds out that the brother [...]


    11. I'm afraid I couldn't get into this, despite being intrigued by the outline of the story. I didn't find it well written, and it seemed more like a book for children or teens than one for adults. It doesn't appear to have been edited or proofread at all. Here's an example of an odd sentence with poor grammar 'Not a lecherous scare, he scrutinized her as if he were studying a scientific specimen.' Having previously abandoned another book ('Davide') by this author, I must say to Mr Pepper - please [...]


    12. I thought this was going to be a historical fiction but turned into something completely different. When I first began reading it seemed like watching a four-hour movie in thirty minutes. I read some deleted scenes after finishing the book and thought parts of them should have been included. That would have explained more to take away my confusion.I liked this because it was so unusual from any book I've read. Once I figured out what was happening I really got into the book. I have no idea of th [...]


    13. I didn't love or hate this book- I enjoyed various aspects of the story, while at times, I felt that certain points of the dialog were either unnecessary, or bloated. The premise of scientists producing Cro-mag/Human hybrids, and Mammoths via insemination of frozen, ancient sperm is a stretch, but leaves room for an exciting, or at the least, entertaining story. This book may have just been ok for me, but I can see how it would appeal to many readers of Michael Creighton. I really believe that i [...]


    14. This book has a very interesting premise. It opens with finding frozen pre-historic sperm, bringing it back to life, and inseminating humans with it to create hybrids, I. E. The Brothers Cro-Magnon. The story kept my interest and included several complex characters . Although I enjoyed the read, I think this could have really benefitted from a good editor. Particularly in the beginning, pronouns and narrators switched mid paragraph causing me to re-read passages to parse the meaning. There were [...]


    15. My rating is 3.5 stars.I enjoyed the first 25% of the book very much. The premise of using prehistoric sperm to impregnate a modern woman is interesting. My problem is that the story is disjointed with several major breaks in logic and reality. It is definitily an easy quick read for those times when you want to veg out in your reading. The writing reminds me of YA fiction. I wish the last 75% of the book would have been as interesting as the first part.


    16. I was lucky enough to receive this book in Epub form from Roger Pepper through . It was a fascinating take on the things that could happen if scientists could recreate life from the DNA of prehistoric times. It held me captive from start to finish. There were enough twists and turns to keep you guessing as to what would happen next. I hope that Mr Pepper keeps up the good work and I sincerely look forward to reading more of his work. Thanks again and Cheers


    17. An action adventure set in the Arctic, a journalist sets out to search for her roots and comes face to face with some living prehistoric animals and finds herself being chased by the KGB, and by men who believe she may be their sister. The problem, these men are half present day human and half cor-magnon. This is an excellent read for anyone who loves action/adventure with a touch of fantasy.


    18. ExcitingThis book was very exciting from the beginning. It has prehistoric people and mammoths in a modern Siberian setting. The main hero is Corky who is looking for her birth origins and finds the story and adventure of a life time.



    19. Pretty good storyGood writing, a few times hard to keep up with the action. But that's from how it got digitised, not from the author I think.
