Before Adam 



Before Adam is a novel by Jack London is the story of a man who dreams he lives the life of an early hominid. The story offers an early view of human evolution.


The story offers an early view of human evolution. The majority of the story is told through the eyes of the man's hominid alter ego, one of the Cave People. In addition to the Cave People, there are the more advanced Fire People and the more animal-like Tree People. Other characters include the hominid's father, a love interest, and Red-Eye, a fierce "atavism" that perpetually terrorizes the Cave People. A saber-cat also plays a role in the story.

Review by Nick 
Unexpectedly awesome. This is technically a work of science fiction, I suppose. Its premised on an idea of "genetic memory" which Im pretty sure is wholly discredited. The narrator has a genetically imprinted memory of his ancestors, particularly one ancestry: A prehuman ape. But its just a premise to get you into the real story. The story of that ape's life. Its fascinating to read a narration of such a life.
