Loved the story. Saved at birth though orphaned. Happy human adoption subsequently. Laughs. Many gratifying moments. Then back to some sad and challenging times for Jennie and her family. Jennie, is the mischievous ape/chimp , playful, loving, intelligent, humanized animal who learns sign language. The confusion for this lovely creature as to whether she is human or an ape, accelerates as she ages. The ending was somewhat predictable as the story develops, and then again, it wasn't. Another must read by this author.

This book was deeply touching. It was warm and funny and ultimately heart breaking. It made me laugh and cry and I can see myself reading it again!
I would abosolutely recommend this to a friend and aggressively try to convince people to read this book.

Jennie was both an enjoyable read and a great insight into the similarities between ourselves and one of our closest genetic relatives, the chimpanzee. The book also raises the interesting moral question of whether or not it it acceptable to raise a chimpanzee as a human child.

If I had one qualm it is this: though the story is a fictionalized rendering of actual events, I found it hard to know how much of Preston's story was based on hard reality, and how much if it was filled in by his wonderful imagination. How much were these various journal entries, interviews, notes, and memoirs based real ones, and how much were they the creation of a talented writer?

I found that the book left me wanting to know more, but that's not necessarily a bad thing: Jennie prompted me to learn more about the actual events surrounding the life of this amazing chimpanzee.

JENNIE deserves American Classic status on a par with The Grapes of Wrath or Stranger in a Strange Land. Preston's little chimpanzee touches so many disparate places within the reader that she becomes absolutely real. No wonder the author takes such pains to remind us that JENNIE is a work of fiction.

The book makes serious emotional demands upon its reader. At the outset, JENNIE seems like a nice little monkey story, but that's an illusion, which vanishes like spring ice beneath an unwary skater.

JENNIE is not for the faint of heart.
Buzatus
This is fiction that rings with truth...about what it means to be human; we must look deeply into ourselves and question our attitudes and treatment of animals...these amazing other beings.
Burilar
Written in a journal type mode the story surrounds a family, associates, friends and scientists all interested in Jennie, a chimpanzee taken as a baby from her dead mother and raised by a scientist and his family in the regular world. The story is compelling and engrossing and will draw you in without you even knowing it. Great read.

I love Douglas Preston and this one doesn't disappoint. It was awful at the end because I was crying and could hardly read but he is such a good story teller that even true stories are more funny, more exciting, and more touching than others could possibly even try. Jennie was amazing creature and should have had a better end life but for the time frame I can see how all of it happened. Its a lesson in humanity for everyone.
Once again, Douglas Preston has shown us that he is an exceptional writer.

Love made it possible to bring Jennie into a family home with love. The story had a very sad ending and, unfortunately, it proved that wild animals should not be treated as humans. They belong in the wild or in zoos where they can be appropriately taken care of as well as being treated with respect.
