Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

What does it mean to be human?



Imagine you're in a tragic accident.
You expect to die!
Instead, you awaken in a body that is not yours.
Not even your own species.
Not even your own gender.
In a desperate attempt to save your life your brain has been transplanted into the only body available, the body of a genetically engineered slave.

Everyone is quick to assure you that you are still “legally human,” but you know that when any stranger sees you they see property or perhaps a Frankenstenian abomination.

It is a transformation that causes Todd Herschel to reevaluate his sense of self, his gender identity, her sexual orientation, and how humanity relates to its biological creations.

If your brain is in a new body, whose soul do you have?


Available in paperback through Amazon and most major book sellers. May requre a special order in brick and mortar stores.

L'autore

Born in Salt Lake City Utah in 1970, I have been writing for most of my life but prior to 2012 only had research papers and technical documents published. A cancer survivor, my day job, ironically, used to be as a biologist in a lab that looks for genetic markers for hereditary cancer. When not working or writing I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter, reading, gaming and going to the movies. So far, my only published novels are The Face in the Mirror: a transhuman identity crisis and Chained Reflections. The two volumes of my Reflections series. If you did enjoy my book please rate it and let your friends know. Even better submit a review and let everyone know.

5.0 su 5 stelle I don't often re-read a book 12 marzo 2014
Di davewa - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
So many books... so little time. So I must really like a book to re-read it. This is one of a very small number of eBooks on my Kindle (less than 2% of the total) that I have marked "save for re-reading". Of those, this is one of only half a dozen that I actually have re-read. I'd give it ten stars if I could. Well, except for the annoying transposition of "they're" <-> "their", "you're" <-> "your" and use of plural for possessive. But I can forgive the author for that to some extent because the story is beautifully done. Another reviewer complained about the pacing; I must disagree -- for me, the point of the story is entirely the exploration of what it means to be who you are. Is it morphology? Gender? Sexual orientation? Memories? All of the above? Or something else?

I love that kind of story. [Aside: I reviewed Bernard Doove's "Transformation", which has a similar theme.] Justin Leiber's "Beyond Humanity" was the first book I read -- three decades ago! -- that dealt with this theme and ever since I've been looking for another story that examined the topic to the degree of detail it deserves. This book emphatically does. The author has created a situation in which almost nothing of his protagonist remains the same and then asks "Is this a different person and if so by how much? And if the difference is significant, is this person still human?" -- and that's just an amazingly great concept for a science fiction novel.

When the story is told well the result is a book I will sing the praises of. This is such a book.

5.0 su 5 stelle interspeiceis gender bender. 23 novembre 2013
Di Joy F Friedberg - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Wow I just finished Face in the Mirror and can't wait to read the continuation. This is a fascinating story of human animal hybrids and one mans brain transplanted into a feline hybrid. Todd Hershal, after having his body mangled in a traffic accident is on life support. His wife ops for an experimental surgery to have his brain implanted in the head of a female cat hybrid solider, who was brain dead after a battle. Todd faces the daunting task of dealing with being a female and another species. His wife is repulsed by him, though she okay end the transplant. The story unfolds with the cruel treatment of the hybrids, their status as government property, no rights to their offspring, and lifetimes of servitude. Todd's unique situation will cause societal changes. This is a terrific imaginative sci fi. The story would make for a great discussion for a book group.

4.0 su 5 stelle What if...? 26 aprile 2015
Di KMacK - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This story takes a difficult subject and looks at it long and hard: the enslavement of others. The story itself consists of the reactions of someone whose body is destroyed but whose brain is transplanted into a brain-dead slave species. Add in the problem that the brain is a male brain but the body is a female body.
This is not the usual gender-bender story. It looks at a sickness that still afflicts the human race; the enslavement of others on some pretext or none at all. It is a decent novel and properly leads us to the second novel of the series. Worth reading.
5.0 su 5 stelle Well worth the price... 22 febbraio 2015

I enjoyed both this story and it's sequel, "Chained Reflections." I thought the story was compelling and the character development engrossing. I also liked the moral questions posed--I hope we never "manufacture" living, sentient beings to involuntarily fight our wars for us. Leave that to the drones. Alas, the author has discontinued his story telling for the foreseeable future for personal reasons. I find that a shame and hope his circumstances improve to the point where he can continue the saga...I'll be happy to purchase the follow-on works if they're ever written.

5.0 su 5 stelle Awkward....But hits on a lot of interesting things. 30 ottobre 2013
Di BobBoberson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Well first off being a guy I figured this might be a really really weird book to read, but one day I said what the heck why not and tried it out. Honestly I didn't want to set the book down once I got into it. Some parts of it are well beyond awkward, but having your body let alone gender changed on you without your knowing would make anything a bit awkward.

I suggest it. But be wary of possible overload of thoughts about this sort of thing in real life.
