Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

According to Dr. Darold A. Treffert of the University of Wisconsin, there are fewer than one hundred reported cases of prodigious savants in the world. Those few who possess the savant syndrome all have an island of brilliance that allows them to excel in some remarkable talent. Unfortunately, they all share various developmental disabilities.

In Burlington, Vermont, 1962, seventeen-year-old Gavin Weaver survives a dreadful explosion, six hours of brain surgery, and thirty days in a coma, to awake possessing not just one savant talent, but several, including art, music, mathematics, and memory—and all without suffering any of the usual mental disabilities associated with head trauma.

The odds are slim that Gavin will survive both the internal and external conflicts, which keep him from the one thing he wants most, the girl he’s loved since childhood.

From the beginning to the last word, JJ White has you glued to the couch. You seriously have no idea what is going to happen next, but you have to find out or go mad. I knew savants were exceptionally smart people, but I did not know about the dark side. WOW! More!!! I heard White has two more coming out soon. I cannot wait!!

Enjoyed the book very much. Normally read only sci-fi , but I had work with John when he was an engineer so I thought that I would give it a read. Hopefully John will try some science fiction in the the future. I loved how he wove his story with actual historical events.

Great story. JJ White spins an unlikely hero. You must stay with it as the author sets you up nicely for an end you will not expect. I will say no more.

4.0 su 5 stelle Something completely different. 1 gennaio 2015
Di Diana M. Hockley - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
I have read books where the premise is somewhat the same - a person is in an accident or gets injured and attains powers hitherto denied them. However, JJ White's plot takes this premise a lot further.

Gavin is injured in an explosion which kills two other people, the one who caused it and an innocent bystander. For thirty days Gavin is in a coma but he awakens to a different world, one of colour and fame. Having been set for the future as a sportsman, he is bemused to find that his talents now lie in mathematical equations, art, classical music and chess! Life is looking up, especially for his ambitious father who sees financial possibilities in his son's changes. As Gavin's life deteriorates, the reader soon becomes aware that someone has been paid to put an end to him and all he holds dear. The reason behind the attempts on Gavin's life become apparent toward the twist at the end when a master manipulator reveals himself.

Sometimes readers and certainly people who fancy themselves as art critics, try to put their own spin on the writer or artist's motivations. In this case, it would seem to me that the author asks the reader to examine whether fame and fortune is all it's cracked up to be and is it what we really want? Could we handle the responsibility that comes with fame and fortune?

The ending leaves the option to continue the story - but does not leave the reader up in the air.

With the exception of Gavin, the characters do not come across as sympathetic, and nor should they. Sharon, who comes into contact with Gavin's dark side, can be forgiven for not wanting to repeat the experience. Gavin's increasing paranoia and decreasing control over his own destiny are and cleverly drawn. The writing flows articulately.

I agreed to review this book - I do not know the author and have never read anything by him previously - but I will definitely read another of his works if given the opportunity.
