    Tom Cook is a science journalist working on an archaeological dig in Gibraltar, when disaster strikes in the form of a boat accident—his pregnant fiancée is missing. When Tom goes searching for her, he slips through a time portal that takes him back.... way back, to 40,000 years ago. Neanderthal man has yet to become extinct, though the threat of Homo Sapiens is on the horizon. Tom finds ways to communicate them and become part of their world.

When Tom goes searching for her, he slips through a time portal that takes him back.... way back, to 40,000 years ago. Neanderthal man has yet to become extinct, though the threat of Homo Sapiens is on the horizon. Tom finds ways to communicate them and become part of their world. Quite early on, I saw that this was not just a time travel adventure, and that Tom's actions would have repercussions, which added interest, as I looked forward to finding out how great these would be. Tom has a wealth of knowledge to teach his new family, and draws on his own research about Neanderthal man to find the best methods to help them, especially when they come face to face with the more ruthless Sapiens. In the notes at the back, the author mentions having read Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari; I've read three books by Harari and could feel the influence; I actually thought 'ah, he's been reading Sapiens' a couple of times, before I read the notes, but this wasn't a negative; I liked it. Neander held my interest all the way through; of course time travel stories always depend on disbelief suspension on the part of the reader, but the fantasy must be believeable within the fiction, and for the most part this was; I'd give it about seven out of ten, because I needed to know more about how he communicated with these prehistoric people in order to be completely convinced by the fact that he did. Also, I was so looking forward to finding out how Tom's actions of 40K years ago impacted on the world we know now, but there was less detail than I'd hoped for. On the whole, though, this book is fun and an easy read, an inventive, interesting and original story, as well as providing questions and ideas on which to ponder, which makes it a win-win as far as I'm concerned; yes, I recommend it!

    A lot to think about. What if? A perfect way to think about the history of Homo Sepians and the beginning of mankind. Well written with great characters and think about it moments.

    A well written and engrossing story which has been carefully researched, with the behaviour and capabilities of the Neanderthal characters fully in line with the latest archaeological and anthropological evidence. It's one of those books which keep you wanting to know what's going to happen next. Will he...? Will she...? Even if you're not a fan of sci-fi, this book is certainly well worth the read. Eagerly awaiting the sequel!

    This is a simple straightforward book written at the young adult level. If it was a movie, I’ll guess it to be rated at PG due to some violence.

If it was a movie, I’ll guess it to be rated at PG due to some violence. It’s the adventures of a guy wallowing in his OCD who accidentally finds out how to commute back and forth from the present to the Pleistocene. Given the wide variety of possibilities such fourth or fifth-dimensional travel offers; he plays it rather unimaginatively going for living the tribal life among some Neanderthals whom he happened upon at the start of his first trip. Unlike other time travel books, little attention paid to the various paradoxes and physical impossibilities that usually form the core or at least an important side issue of such books. Rather, the protagonist shows no fear in acting in a manner that he figures will likely affect the future or the present from his initial time frame. I found his carefree attitude toward what he was doing a refreshing change from the usual handwringing dialog I expected to find. Here’s a guy bopping about 40,000 years ago having as much impact then as he can muster unconcerned that he may be killing billions of unborn or fomenting an alternate timeline that has Neanderthals wiping out Sapiens. As I said, refreshing. This isn’t a serious attempt at a fish out of water setup or an educational try at presenting Paleolithic life, but instead, just a lot of fun skipping over the unlikelihood of a modern Sapiens being accepted into ancient Neanderthal society or accepting the various issues of going from the current time to the Paleolithic. Personally, I’d miss my microwave oven not to mention running water and the availability of dentists. Yet, as a Y.A. lightweight adventure, it spins itself out nicely.

    New Perspectives A different look at Neanderthal people and culture, wrapped up in a well-crafted story. I’m fascinated by the Neanderthal humans. This was accurate, contained facts I hadn’t known, and the author even lists resources and other fiction works about Neanderthals and the interaction between them and Sapiens. One of the many things I like about SciFi/speculative fiction is the thought-provoking ability to imagine, “what if...” This book offers a great, “what if.” I look forward to rea New Perspectives A different look at Neanderthal people and culture, wrapped up in a well-crafted story.

    Excellent Depiction of Neanderthals This was an excellent story, wrapped around one of my very favorite genres of speculative fiction, time travel.. In this case, it's used merely as a tool to get the reader to the heart and beauty of this story, describing the Neanderthal as kind, loving and empathatic beings, who are at the end point of their exsistance, perched upon the Rock of Gibraltar. I highly recommend!

    5 Stars Tom Cook, while working with a paleontology dig. Discovers a Neanderthal hand with an engagement ring on it. The same ring that he has in his pocket. He goes through a Time Warp and ends up 40000 years in the past where he joins a group of Neanderthals and finds out the mystery about the ring. Good book.

    Escape to the pleiosten! I enjoyed Reading this travel into the pleiosten era. It brought back memories of Earth's Children The series Jean Auel wrote years ago. This novel is less complicated and a quick read. Add in the concept of time travel and interesting ideas bound. Going back that far in time would be as challenging as exploring other planets. Thank you Harald Johnson!

    A very enjoyable read! This story has a bit of everything a Time Travel story needs! Aside from the usual worries of the Butterfly Effect “ possibilities, I loved this Time Travelers journey into the past, and the connection a special cave has on the whole story. I wish we had more evidence of what their (Neanderthal) lives were like. This was a great glimpse into a ‘what if ‘.

    Neander Fabuloso!! This we This story, characters and location engulfed me from the very beginning! I have lived in Spain and spent a lot of time in Gibraltar! Also been inside the caves and visited sites from thousands of years ago! Harald Johnson took me back there like never before. Loved it to the end!

    Time travel fun. I like speculative science fiction and this book did just that, it took me back in time to hang out with neanderthals and of course it had a few twist and turns with a feel good good kind of ending, it was a quick read so I had to pace myself to enjoy and not finish the book to fast!

    OK. I wished it was a bit more, well, everything. It seemed a bit thin and could have used more work. Characters, situations, and depth of the story all needed more "meat" on their bones. Overall, intriguing concept and interesting development.

    Fun Read I enjoyed the read. Can we change history? What were Neanderthals really like? The book was a quick read and as I like time travel books it was enjoyable.

    Recommend I enjoyed this book but thought it seemed too short. I could see a much more in-depth and extended story as to how Tom and Brassy's family played out.

    Easy entertaining read. Interesting premise. I don't recall any time travelling books covering the Neanderthal world. A well paced and easy to follow story. Good beach book.
