What the community says about Origin Of Species
- "This is not a good book for biopunk fans. It's not fiction and it's one of the most important factual books ever written on evolution. If you're looking for a biopunk novel, this will disappoint you because while it does feature biology, it's not going to be any type of science fiction novel."
- "As a devote Roman Catholic, this blasphemous book offends me on so many levels. I was given this book as a gag gift by a fellow churchgoer named Nancy. I only read it as a polite gesture to her kindness. In his research, Mr. Darwin comes to the conclusion that man evolved from Apes because of various similarities in our anatomy with those animals. Human beings aren't Apes, and certainly aren't animals! God created everything, including man, in seven days. Do yourself a favor and burn this book if you happen to come upon a copy of it."
- "Charles Darwin's masterpiece on the theory of evolution is a must read book about the origin of species. It's been used for teaching for the past century, and is a cornerstone of any biological species study. I would recommend anyone that has interest in the subject to get a copy of it."
- "Origin of Species is definitely a great book from the perspective of an evolutionary biologist, but there's also another aspect of the book that is frequently overlooked. The truth is it's also a story of adventure and exploration, detailing Darwin's voyage and quest for knowledge and understanding of the natural world."
- "The Origin Of Species is pretty dry, but it lacks in interesting prose what it gains in importance. It sets up our modern understanding of biology and evolution, something that was an entirely new idea up until that point. It's hard to imagine where we would be without this important work."
