Ape HouseA group of bonobo apes is being studied (sympathetically and humanely) - and taught sign language in the process. The lab is blown up, the project is finished and the apes get sold to a TV company which makes a reality TV show called Ape House. A journalist and one of the original project scientists endeavour to rescue the apes from this fate.

Very contrived feeling to the plot and characters. Simplistic and very 2-dimensional. But see next review for Gruen's Water for Elephants. Read at the beach house in Oakura - a book Hilary bought because she enjoyed W for E.
