Summary Lucy Author Laurence Gonzales Lucy Author Laurence Gonzales Characters ´ 102 Hat Lucy is the result of a shocking experiment and that the adorable magical wonderful girl she has come to love is an entirely new hybrid species half human half bonob I know a lot of reviewers on com panned this novel I still decided to go ahead with it based on the reviews on NPR last fall Even with a master s degree in anthropology I still enjoyed this novel The gene splicing technology is similar to that proposed for bringing back the Woolly Mammoth Whether or not science is there yet is another uestion altogether and I suspended my disbelief for the purpose of the novel I also suspended my disbelief that a hybrid would exhibit suprahuman intelligence In human evolution and its forks in the road homo sapiens have the second largest brain capacity at about 1200 ccs to a homo neanderthalensis approx 1400 ccs We have far greater capacity for abstract thought language and tool making than our great ape counterparts No one myself included would contend that brain size is the only correlate to intelligence and humanness we have physiology that makes our complex spoken language and tool making possible but impossible for great apes Yes great apes have been shown to use tools but experiments in teaching them to create tools on even an early humanoid level haven t been promising Again because the science is outlined in a rather sketchy manner even a reader well versed in primate evolution can be allowed to suspend disbelief because I don t really know what Lucy s brain configuration looks likeThe real part of the novel is the ethical considerations No one uestioned that it was wrong to create a pan paniscus homo sapiens hybrid but we re left to grapple with the conseuences and how things would play out in the media and legal arenas once knowledge escaped Here the one area I think Gonzales overlooked would be the resulting explicit bans on similar gene splicing experimentation I found the ultimate resolution to be a smart choice if not somewhat predictable
