Overview

A young man in modern America is terrorized by visions of an earlier, primitive life. Across the enormous chasm of thousands of centuries, his consciousness has become entwined with that of Big-Tooth, an ancestor living at the dawn of humanity. Big-Tooth makes his home in Pleistocene Africa, a ferocious, fascinating younger world torn by incessant conflict between early humans and protohumans. Before Adam is a remarkable and provocative tale that thrust evolution further into the public spotlight in the early twentieth century and has since become a milestone of speculative fiction. The brilliance of the book lies not only in its telling but also in its imaginative projection of a mindset for early humans. Capitalizing on his recognized ability to understand animals, Jack London paints an arresting and dark portrait of how our distant ancestors thought about themselves and their world.

    London Departure

    An interesting take on evolution, written during a time when the concept was taking center stage. Enjoyed the book.

    Decent

    Decent enough of a copy to read, less spelling errors than most copies. Story-wise, it's interesting enough. I was pleased with the writing.

    Interesting yet sad

    This book gives you a lot to think about. Good writing, but a bit abusive to the reader by battering around the protaginist.

    Enjoyable

    Well put together, this copy has fewer errors than many scanned copies so was pretty easy to read. The story itself was well thought-out and a satisfying read.

    A very meaningful little book

    Yes, I am a big Jack London fan. And this little book with it hidden metaphors, is typical of the genius of Mr. London. Although not meant to be so scientifically accurate, the meanings are presented in a brilliant manner. So for you Jack London fans or otherwise, enjoy the read.
