K-PAX The Trilogy (K-PAX, #1-3) by Gene Brewer
Get on board with this one.
I was utterly absorbed in this book.
I had planned to finally weed the garden today, (seriously, the situation is dire. You could film Survivor at my house). But did I? No I did not. Instead, I spent the day sprawled out on the lounge room floor with a box of Oreos and K-Pax.
Seeing as I havent seen the movie I was able to get into the mystery of Prots story. It really did keep me guessing the whole way through. I bounced between, ‘Aww. The poor, poor nutta’, and ‘Yep, Alien for sure’, before finally deciding that I didn’t actually care whether or not Prot was from another plant so as long as he kept making me laugh. Mostly by his fruit consumption.
I realise that this review isn’t particularly helpful to anyone wanting a summary of the plot or whatever. I even think calling this a ‘review’ is a giant stretch of the imagination. But nonetheless, I urge you to read it.
And if you happen to be in a position to set yourself up on the floor with a box or Oreos while doing it, then so much the better.

If a visitor from another planet appeared among us in human form and told the truth about his origins, no doubt he would be treated like Prot, the hero of ''K-PAX,'' who finds himself locked in a closed ward of the Psychiatric Institute of Manhattan. He might not, however, be as lucky as Prot in his psychiatrist. Mark Powell, and his voice toys with the notion that Prot might not be delusional. Certainly the patient tells a good story. Played by Kevin Spacey , who has made a career out of being the smartest character in the movie, Prot describes his intergalactic travels, dismisses Einstein's theories about the speed of light and amazes a group of astronomers in a scene that suggests, as it is intended to, Christ addressing the elders in the temple. Jeff Bridges plays the shrink, and brings to the role exactly what is required, a weary workaholic who thinks he has seen everything and is relieved to discover that he hasn't.
