Item description for Monkey 99 by Michael Doyle Amspaugh...
The next major evolution may not be physical; it may not even be human! What if you and a few of your friends were the only people in the world with strong ESP powers? What if you also knew that literally overnight and without warning, everyone in the world would develop marvelous psychic powers? These powers would vary considerably from person-to-person in types of powers, number of powers, and amount of power for each type. Almost everyone would know other peoples' deepest thoughts and memories and many would be able to kill or destroy with a thought, conscious or unconscious. No controls, no mitigation, no reprieves! Would you try to stop it? Would you try to help it along? Would you run and hide? Or would you do something... else?

Reviews - What do customers think about Monkey 99?
Evolution has never stopped progressing Jun 14, 2005
Evolution has never stopped progressing. The results in humans are now within the mind rather than obvious physical manifestations. What will happen though when more and more people come to realize that their mindful abilities make them superior to your average human being? In "Monkey 99" Michael Doyle Amspaugh offers a theory of widespread psychic knowledge and a story in which someone with great abilities attempts to control those who come into their own.
In the beginning we are led to believe that the people at the Institute are trying to prevent evil from taking over those who have abilities. Unfortunately, not everyone has this goal in mind. Sometimes the evil is within.
The focus group of characters includes those who are teachers and those who have been recruited into the institute based on their powers. They are invited in an abductive way, but nonetheless become willing participants in their training. Of course they would, for the alternative is to be frozen until a later date.
The plot of the book is at once futuristic yet current and is a twist of almost believable science fiction and fiction in the psychic/paranormal realm. It is an adventure story within the mind and full of action and intrigue. The book will get the reader thinking of the possibilities all the while giving an entertaining read.
I was impressed with the plot twists and the depth of characters. On the other hand I was distracted by numerous typos (though my inner editor always is.) "Monkey 99" is a good read with very minor flaws that are far outweighed by its positives. Review by Heather Froeschl.
Captivating Innovative theme written in classic Sci-Fi style Jun 1, 2005
As a Sci-Fi lover Monkey 99 hit the spot...innovative themes reminding me of Isaac Asimov or Ursla Le Guin yet written in the classic style reminisce of Robert Heimlein. Excellent villians/heros with captivating plot surprises, could not put it down. Believe it is destined to be a movie and cannot wait for the sequel!
