Imagine a time and space traveler from another planet. One that looks human and exemplifies the ideal world he comes from, a world free from human nature's greed and cruelty. That creature would be prot, as he calls himself, the newest patient at the Manhattan Psychiatric Institute.

Prot seems to know more than he should about faster-than-the-speed-of-light-travel. And besides drawing constellations as viewed from K-PAX, the name of his home planet, prot can describe its orbit around double suns in unpublished detail. Who is prot and where did he really come from? Why does he have the ability to cure severe mental cases? And to disappear at will? And to charm everyone he comes into contact with?

Bizarre delusion or reality? Listen in as a psychiatrist who specializes in delusional behavior documents his sessions with the man from K-PAX. Download and start listening now!

    " Brewer has created an unfortgetable character in prot, and a novel that while Science Fiction, excels beyond the genre (not that there's a thing wrong with the genre). prot's tale is tragic, and though he be from K-Pax, so very human. "

    " 9/10. What a great book! Very, very funny. If you've only seen the film they made based on this book then you've missed out. Nearly all the humour is lost in the film. Very highly recommended book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan Paine | 11/16/2013

    " K-Pax by Gene Brewer (???) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 10/16/2013

    " The movie was pretty good, so I decided to pick up the book. The book was good too, but science fiction really isn't my genre of choice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chad Gibbons | 10/1/2013

    " This is a good book unfortunately made into a lackluster movie. Prot is a terrific character. Read it and decided for yourself what's going on with him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 9/13/2013

    " One time I have to say that the screen play was just better, and if you liked the film, or the book, then do not read the second in the series... it works hard to strip all the magic from the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roger | 10/4/2012

    " I watched the movie first and have watched in many times since .. We had 3 weeks in the Maldives where I read 1 book each week .. The books were well written and because the acting in the movie was so good , when you read you heard their voices .. I said from the start of the movie prot was from space .. With the flash of a light and a mirror ! He was gone .. I loved the books and the ending in the book is what i wanted from the movie .. Watch the movie first .. then read the books it is like watching the conclusion of the movie in your head .. "

    " Saw the film first. This is a great read. "

    " I remember enjoying this years ago, and dusted it off recently when looking for interesting books for my 11 year-old son. He's really enjoying it, too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 1/2/2012

    " The movie really did justice to the book, I don't feel like it really added to the experience to read the book, which for me is a first, but I like the store and the characters and it was an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 11/8/2011

    " One of the few books I've read after seeing the film, and for once I wasn't disappointed. It is a beautiful reflective tale of the nature of difference, the persistence of some beliefs in the face of opposition, and above all for me, compassion. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Roddy Williams | 10/18/2011

    " There have been far far better treatments of the 'Is he an alien or not?' concept, and in this the suspense is... non-existent. How it got picked up for a movie is a more intriguing mystery. Derivative pap. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcelo Soares Schlindwein | 6/22/2011

    " A very good idea and story, but unfortunately poorly written. I watched the film with Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges before reading the book, and I found it very good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Soun-Ja | 5/13/2011

    " This is a fun read. The ending will keep you guessing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 11/18/2010

    " The 1st book is basically the movie word for word (or the movie is basically the 1st book, I suppose) then there's 2 other parts after that. Good holiday read, nothing too taxing but quite pleasant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 8/3/2010

    " The movie really did justice to the book, I don't feel like it really added to the experience to read the book, which for me is a first, but I like the store and the characters and it was an enjoyable read. "

    " Story has a great purpose and meaning behind it, but the execution was sort of so-so. Also, I became quite tired of the plodding portions where hypnotism was involved. Took me down into the quagmire of patient diagnosis when what I really desired was to go to KPax with Prot. A mediocre read... "

    " 9/10. What a great book! Very, very funny. If you've only seen the film they made based on this book then you've missed out. Nearly all the humour is lost in the film. Very highly recommended book. "

    " you might not like the story BUT FOR THE PLANETARY MESSAGE everybody has to read these books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl in CC NV | 3/31/2010

    " I saw the movie first and liked it enough to hope the book was better. It wasn't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shanna | 2/2/2010

    " I saw the movie first and when I found out it was a book I decided to check it out.

    I really liked the story, a little bit different from the movie which is sometimes nice and it was in this book. Very easy to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Simon | 1/8/2010

    " Great book. Don't bother with the rest of the trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 12/23/2009

    " I wish I had read the book before seeing the film. This is one of the few times when the movie outshines the book. "
