The title of the book is The father of our fathers, written by Bernard Werber. This book has two part which are told together. It is not two parts divided, its two story has few pages of the first story and after the second story, that ultimate change; first story partly written, second story partly written after that , and then repeated... first story, second story... The first story is about today in Pris, and the sencond is about groups of weird human looking creatures wandering over the land...more

I can reccomend this book to everyone, just because it's not only interesting, with a lot of action, adventures, little-known facts about the human brain, consciousness, rational mind, pleasure and motivation, but also with the whole truth that is converted and adapted for the mass public. It teaches basic human merits, gives a great description about human behavior in certain situations and has a good dose of humour too. The plot is as original as it can be, the main heroes are symphatetic, eve...more
Mon premier Bernard Werber... Et bien, je crois que je n'y reviendrai pas ! Je n'ai pas accroché, mais alors pas du tout. Le sujet était pourtant sympa, mais c'est la manière dont c'est écrit qui m'a gênée, je pense. Comment expliquer mon impression ?

Peut-être est-ce que c'est venu de cette succession de tous petits chapitres et des allers et retours incessants entre notre époque et la préhistoire ? Ou alors du fait que tout semblait toujours aller trop vite ? Les évènements qui s'enchaînent à...more
Yawn. So glad I read the sequel first as it was MUCH better and had I read them in the correct order, I don't think I would have ever tried the second book. I wasn't that impressed with this book and as it didn't capture my attention as much, I think I found it harder to understand as I didn't feel like putting the effort in. A shame and a disappointment seeing I enjoyed "L'ultime Secret" so much!
A series of interesting hypotheses on the missing in the evolution of man that vary in credibility and seriousness. I think the author cared more about laying out the possible (or whimsical) origins of humanity than crafting a storyline. I was willing to go along with it for the first three sections, could have done without the fourth.

Bernard Werber's "Ants" trilogy of made him one of France's most popular science fiction novelists in the 90s. Werber began studying journalism in 1982 in Paris, where he discovered the work of sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick. In 1991 he published the novel Les Fourmis (Empire of the Ants), a complex fantasy novel in which ants were the heroes and humans the pesty antagonists. The novel became a cult...more
