The Murderer's Ape

by Jakob Wegelius Year Published: 2017

Sally Jones, an engineering-minded gorilla, narrates this fast-paced novel. Our story opens with Sally Jones and her captain, Chief, coming into port in Lisbon. They are looking for work, but when they find it, they find themselves in a pickle that brings the reader to India and back. 

This is a great read for those students who want something with short, action-packed chapters. It keeps you turning pages quickly and despite it being a 600+page book, it feels much shorter.

I enjoyed Sally Jones’ voice very much.
