Présentation de l'éditeur

“Vaz” is the story of Vaz Gettnor, a scientifically brilliant but socially inept man who falls somewhere on the Asperger’s/Autism spectrum. He verges on the nature of an “idiot savant,” having a very low emotional quotient but absolute brilliance in science/physics/chemistry.
Vaz is struggling to get his company to let him do the research he loves instead of working on the drudgery projects they assign him. He barely recognizes that the company is cashing in on his inventions while paying him a pittance and giving him no respect.
But then... a new manager fires him without realizing just how important he is to the company’s bottom line.
Once fired he joyfully finds himself free to work on the research he wants to work on at home, instead of what his managers assign him to do. He has a lead on a Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (cold fusion) that fascinates him.
Meanwhile back at the company some decide that they can force Vaz to rehire, or to give up even more rights to his existing inventions.
They make the mistake of assuming that his social ineptness somehow means that he won't be able to protect himself or his family.
That assumption is a serious mistake - with enough scientific know how, almost anything can become a weapon!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A quick-paced near-future thriller, with an interesting hero 3 mars 2013
Par David Brukman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
At the start, Vaz is research physicist in a near-future world. He has horrible people skills, but very creative. One of his supervisors calls him, without affection, an Idiot Savant. Vaz has been fortunate--his skills are valued at work, he has a wife who understands his Apsberger-like limitations but is still in love with him after almost twenty years of marriage, and two kids.

His equilibrium is disturbed when his boss retires, and a new manager is appointed for the R&D team. Vaz's strange work habits, his incomprehension of office politics, and the new boss's ego lead to Vaz's loss of the job. Hijinks ensue when Vaz continues to pursue his fascinating ideas at home, his family get increasingly concerned over what they think is an average lab technician's joblessness, and his employer's desperate realization of what they lost.

Vaz is a likable character; his scientific brilliance, and his remarkable physical strength paired with inability to read emotions, and childlike dislike of change. The science-fictional ideas are interesting, but are mostly a vehicle to expose character development. Still, Dahners has built a plausible world, with social aspects of technology development showing consistency and thought. The book is short, with a rather streamlined plot: I found it pleasantly entertaining.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny, interesting 10 mars 2013
Par Morisei - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book somehow makes the reader root for a socially incompetent nerd. Not just incompetent because of lack of experience, but because he doesn't seem to have enough of some abilities that we all take for granted: being able to easily infer other people's feelings from their displayed behavior or speech, and to react appropriately. Some of the funniest parts are where he's trying to figure out what someone's thoughts or feelings are, even when it is totally obvious to the reader. It shouldn't be hilarious, but it is. This is combined with a love story, some decent science, some nasty bad guys, and some action. All in all, a great read. Be warned: you're likely to come away with a bit more sympathy for the socially incompetent amongst us. Good stuff.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Story: Hard science - Really disfunctional protagonist - Real personal family interactions. 11 avril 2014
Par Bug Finder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is not a book I would have just picked up. A good friend recommended it to me.

It is about a true genius that has negative interpersonal skills that is forced out of his comfort zone at a company and just gets on with his life. His genius is in visualizing and inventing strange things.

In some respects, this is a relatively simple story. You can kind of anticipate how it is going to progress.

The really strange part is that for such a simple story, I Could Not Put It Down!

This story is contemporary and reflects, in an extreme way, challenges in the work place, at home with your spouse, and dealing with teen age kids that are also really smart.

This book will also make you feel good when you get to the end.

Buy it and read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I have read this novel twice and would love a sequel. 15 novembre 2014
Par Michael Huston - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I've enjoyed in all Dahners novels how he likes to change one element of a situation and then writes a story on the ramifications. You can't help comparing this novel to his Ell Donsaii series. The protagonist, Vaz, is middle aged, male and married, but he seems to have the same nerve mutation as Ell without her unusual concentration of fast twitch muscle fibers. This expresses itself in the muscles with abnormal strength and little fatigue after enormous output. This would make for an interesting story all by itself. The same mutation also makes Vaz's brain cells more densely packed and quicker, like Ell. What makes this story unusual is that due to the structure of Vaz's brain he is autistic and he views the world very differently than the average person and the story plays out from there.
If you compare the human brain to the Central Processing Unit (CPU) of a computer, then the nerve mutation in the Ell Donsaii and Vaz stories would be comparable to making the electronic structures of the CPU smaller and therefor faster and with more on-chip memory on the same size silicon. This is one way we increase the power of a computer. Different designs of CPU's work better for different applications, like human brains. Ell, Zage and Vaz have very different brain structures, turbocharged.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love of a woman 2 mars 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I gave this book 5 stars because it revolves around a improbable love. A beautiful lady falls for the brilliant emotional cripple and truly loves and understands him enough to be with him for a lifetime. The story is gripping and entertaining enough that I read it in one sitting. The action is violent but in a strangely therapeutic way for Vaz that makes it nonthreating. I hope that there's book 2 in the works as i would love to see what develops next.
