Présentation de l'éditeur

“Vaz” is the story of Vaz Gettnor, a scientifically brilliant but socially inept father, struggling to be allowed to do the research he loves, to be treated fairly by the company he works for and to send his kids to college.
Despite some phenomenal accomplishments, he isn't getting much respect.
But then... some people decide to take advantage of him. 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 was a serious mistake!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A quick-paced near-future thriller, with an interesting hero 3 mars 2013
Par David Brukman - Publié sur
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

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love of a woman 2 mars 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Story: Hard science - Really disfunctional protagonist - Real personal family interactions. 11 avril 2014

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.

Enjoyable reading. Vaz may not have been the most like able character but was fleshed out nicely in the book! All character were well created which made a better read. No true evil characters just motive driven, mostly greed!
I am old enough to have met a few people similar to Vaz. One of them did have a very pretty wife how we never knew! Another what if - why is it men are this way or at least I have not met a women yet? Something to think about?
