Read full description of the books Brain Child:

Compré éste libro hace tres años para una clase de ingles. Se suponía que leeríamos un libro y al finalizar el ciclo daríamos una reseña, sin embargo, nunca llegamos a realizar dicho trabajo. Ahora, después de todo éste tiempo, he leído el libro y estoy aquí para escribir esa reseña.

Me gustó. La historia logro interesarme en muchas ocasiones aunque luego daba giros que me parecían malos, pero bueno, estaba bien. La narración era bipolar: algunas veces era bastante descriptiva e intensa, como debe ser en un libro de terror; y otras veces era más bien sencilla y algo floja. Los diálogos también eran tan buenos cómo malos: algunos personajes, como María Torrer mantenían conversaciones realmente interesantes mientras que otros, como la pareja de policías, me parecían tontos y exasperantes.

Alex, un adolescente popular y carismático, sufre un accidente en su auto que destroza su cerebro, el Dr. Torres está dispuesto a arreglarlo usando los milagros de la tecnología. Alex logra sobrevivir la cirugía pero ahora Alex ha perdido la capacidad de sentir emociones, empieza a escuchar voces en su cabeza y a recordar cosas de hace más de un siglo. Ahora Alex ya no es el mismo.

(view spoiler)[
Hay escenas que creo pudieron haber sido más extensas y más detalladas. Por ejemplo cuando Alex asesina a sus dos primeras victimas: ahí no hubo nada de emoción, nada de acción. Fue aburrido.

El uso del español en el libro me gustó. No sonó estúpido ni forzado, fue bastante bueno. Era un toque realmente grandioso para cuando Alex entraba en una especie de trance para convertirse en Alejandro.

La ciencia aquí me gusta, suena bastante creíble y eso siempre se aprecia en un libro de ciencia ficción. El Dr. Torres creo que fue un personaje muy poco explotado, daba para más.

El final pudo haber sido mucho mejor, de hecho estaba yendo bastante bien hasta que Alex regresó a su casa. La forma en la que es asesinado por su padre me pareció muy rápida y aburrida. El libro tenía la capacidad de emocionarme en algunas escenas, pero me falló completamente con ese final.

Read information about the author

Ebook Brain Child read Online! John Saul was born in Pasadena, California on February 25, 1942, and grew up in Whittier where he graduated from Whittier High School in 1959. He attended several colleges—Antioch, in Ohio, Cerritos, in Norwalk, California, Montana State University and San Francisco State College, variously majoring in anthropology, liberal arts, and theater, but never obtaining a degree.
After leaving college, he decided the best thing for a college dropout to do was become a writer, and spent the next fifteen years working in various jobs while attempting to write a book someone would want to publish. Should anyone ever want to write a novel concerning the car-rental industry or the travails of temporary typists, John can provide excellent background material.

Those years garnered him a nice collection of unpublished manuscripts, but not a lot of money. Eventually he found an agent in New York, who spent several years sending his manuscripts around, and trying to make the rejection slips sound hopeful. Then, in 1976, one of his manuscripts reached Dell, who didn't want to buy it, but asked if he'd be interested in writing a psychological thriller. He put together an outline, and crossed his fingers.

At that point, things started getting bizarre. His agent decided the outline had all the makings of a best-seller, and so did Dell. Gambling on a first novel by an unknown author, they backed the book with television advertising (one of the first times a paperback original was promoted on television) and the gamble paid off. Within a month Suffer the Children appeared on all the best-seller lists in the country and made the #1 spot in Canada. Subsequently all 32 of his books, have made all the best-seller lists and have been published world wide. Though many of his books were published by Bantam/Doubleday/Dell his last fourteen books have been published by Ballantine/Fawcett/Columbine.

In addition to his work as novelist, John is also interested in the theater. He has acted, and as a playwright has had several one-act plays produced in Los Angeles and Seattle, and two optioned in New York. One of his novels was produced by Gerber Productions Company and M.G.M. as a C.B.S. movie and currently one of his novels is in development.

John served on the Expansion Arts Panel of the National Endowment for the Arts. He is actively involved with the development of other writers, and is a lecturer at the Pacific Northwest Writers Conference and the Maui Writers Conference and received the Life Time Achievement Award from the Northwest Writers Conference. John is also a trustee and Vice President of The Chester Woodruff Foundation (New York), a philanthropic organization.

John lives part-time in the Pacific Northwest, both in Seattle and in the San Juan Islands. He also maintains a residence on the Big Island of Hawaii. He currently enjoys motor homing, travel and golf. He is an avid reader, bridge player, golfer and loves to cook.
