5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Usher Syndrome (Becoming Agie (1)) (Kindle Edition)
I just would like to echo other reviewers by saying that the story is very well written and has a natural, effortless flow about it. For a reader it’s pure enjoyment, before you even get to consider the subject matter. And that’s why it can be recommended to everybody. When it comes to the theme, I can say that it’s exactly my type of literature with a healthy mixture of love and science - two things that fascinate me most in life. However, I agree with the protagonist, that it wasn’t actually love, but only a stage in his/her life. And I feel infinitely story for his/her lover who was only a means to an end all around, be it scientifically or emotionally.

4.0 out of 5 stars BOOK REVIEW, 17 July 2012

This review is from: Usher Syndrome (Becoming Agie (1)) (Kindle Edition)
This is a touching tale of love, and tragic friendship. It moves between hope and despair through the mediums of medical research and transsexual thoughts and feelings.

Agie meets Ben and Marina, changing all their lives forever. The story gently builds into transsexual concerns and from there to illness and loss. It may be short but Usher Syndrome will leave you thinking.

This review is from: Usher Syndrome (Becoming Agie (1)) (Kindle Edition)
Since finishing the story almost a week ago I have had a lot of thoughts about it. It is a short story but a story which is not empty as it gives you further food for thought.
I would definitely recommend you this young and talented author.

This review is from: Usher Syndrome (Becoming Agie (1)) (Kindle Edition)
Colleagues at my workplace went to see the theatrical adaptation of this `Usher Syndrome'. It is a fairly fast-paced short story that drags the reader from Russian literature to gene therapy, with detours through religion, although it never strays far from identity politics. At one point the protagonist, a scientist, single-handedly publishes the results of a few month's work in a prestigious scientific journal which, for me, places this story firmly in the genre of speculative fiction. The apparent shifts in narrative point of view, from character to character, tend to emulate the changing perspectives of the characters as they learn more about each other and their hidden motives. The revelation at the climax made me re-read it as soon as I finished. I'm not sure if the title page, which can be read 'Usher syndrome' or 'Us (and) Her syndrome', is an intentional allusion to an developing theme in the story, or if it is just a coincidence.
