The People That Time Forgot (Caspak, #2)
EPUB EBook by Edgar Rice Burroughs
EBook DescriptionTHE PEOPLE THAT TIME FORGOT is an absurd (and unintentionally funny) sequel to Burrough's marginal classic, THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT. The People That Time Forgot (Caspak, #2) EPUB EBookPeople hoping for something along the lines of Michael Crichton's JURASSIC PARK or Arthur Conan Doyle's THE LOST WORLD will be severely disappointed.Yet, there is an element of fun to be had here, especially if you treat it like an old- EPUBfashioned YA novel and grant it the same kind of leeway as you would, say, a PERCY JACKSON adventure.
Interestingly, it took people in the first Caspak story half the book just to reach the dinosaur-infested island, but the characters in this sequel accomplish the same feat within the first chapter—meaning a stronger focus on fighting prehistoric creatures and making out with voluptuous cavewomen.Despite the scientific pretensions of the first-person narrator, little about the story comes across as logical or even vaguely plausible.The narrator is the kind of action hero who can fly an airplane, shoot like Annie Oakley, and learn a new language within a few days.He also has a perfect sense of direction and is very handy with a lasso.
It drove me particularly crazy how characters always showed up in the nick of time whenever someone desperately needed rescue.Very lazy, from a storytelling perspective.Then there's all the evolutionary science mumbo-jumbo that comes across not only as being stupid, but borderline racist.The "savages" in the story are even able to pass through several evolutionary stages within a single lifetime.As they reach each new stage, a strange inner voice tells them to move away from their homes and go live among superior beings of their own kind.
In other words, racial segregation at its finest. Like this book? Read online this: The Man That Time Forgot, Two Minute Warning, Why It's Time To Honor Jewish People Before The Clock Runs Out.
