Psychiatrist Gene Brewer doesn't have a diagnosis for the mysterious new patient who calls himself "prot" (rhymes with goat). But this strange and likeable man cannot be--as he claims--from the planet K-PAX.

Or can he? Prot knows facts about space that are confounding the experts. He is soon revealing Dr. Brewer's own deepest pains and most sublime longings. And his tales of K-PAX have other patients competing to go along with him when he heads "home". Now the doctor is racing the clock to find prot's true identity before he losses a man whose "madness" might just save them all. . .

Published in a dozens countries with movie rights sold to the producer of Field of Dreams, K-PAX has touched the hearts and expanded the horizons of readers around the world. It promises to join Robert Heinlein's classic Stranger in a Strange Land as a moving, thought-provoking masterpiece of modern-day fiction.

    Ha salido la segunda parte de este libro (En un rayo de luz) y puesto que era una lectura (y una película) de la que guardaba buen recuerdo, he tenido que re-leerlo, claro, ántes de ponerme con el siguiente. No me ha decepcionado ;-)

    tutto noia e niente coinvolgimento

    Trama carina con tanto di colpo di scena e di mistero, ma tutto ciò non basta a compensare un libro noiosissimo e poco avvincente. Stranamente il film è molto, ma molto più bello!

    Corto pero con mucha sustancia. Una utopía pero, me gustaría que prost fuera real. Ahora a por la segunda parte.

    Great plot. The film version is slightly different with a different ending which was probably better for a film, but overall the book is a better story. "prot" claims to have come to EARTH on a beam of light from his home planet of K-PAX. He finds himself at the Manhatten Psychiatric Institute under the care of Dr Brewer. The dialogue between "prot" and Dr Brewer is engaging and entertaining. It is a light but well written read - a "can't put down" book that keeps you interested and entertained but also educates you into how mental conditions are treated. I couldn't wait to get to the end to discover prot's fate and can't wait to read K-PAX II & III.

    K-PAX – Da un altro mondo, è un romanzo del 2002 di Gene Brewer. Etichettato come romanzo di fantascienza, K-PAX è, in realtà, anche un thriller psicologico ed un encomiabile esempio di saggio sulla natura umana. Ed inoltre, non sono rari nel romanzo i tratti in cui la prosa raggiunge livelli sentimentali e capaci di far commuovere, specialmente nel finale.
