Two strangers, a man and a woman, meet on a deserted island, where neither remembers when or how they arrived. Eventually they realize they’re undergoing a deliberate unorthodox experiment.
Omar and Shadia are continually exposed to hazards that reveal their true selves. Their captors’ research explores which experiences can transform a regular individual into a fearless superhero, and what it takes to force that same person into submission, becoming an obedient puppet.
Neanderthals: The Experiment is a disturbing novel, one that questions modern humans’ assumption that we stand at the pinnacle of development. Not only a thrilling adventure, the story focuses on a person’s most difficult choice: that between freedom and safety. Omar and Shadia’s love is triggered by an ultimate hardship, while the story’s theme delves into human pride—how the instant we face a hard choice can lead us to throw our old fears behind.
