Overall, a great short story that is both thought-provoking and satisfying.
Without having a spoiler, I can tell you this: the author does a good job of quickly grabbing your attention, and is able to get you to visualize the various scenes / scenarios of a twisted scientist conducting rogue research. The ending was a little different and while not a serious or "weighty" subject matter for a short story it served its purpose: a short and enjoyable read.
Kyle eventually meets a Dr. Sorenson who claims to have a cure for Kyle's disease. This is not a tried and true medical procedure that is in use, but an experimental one and has not been approved for use in humans. Dr. Sorenson has used this only on laboratory mice and rats. He and Kyle agree to go ahead with the treatment.
I felt very bad for Kyle in this story and especially the ending which was so abrupt that I didn't like it. I didn't see that particular ending coming, so I was a bit surprised. The story is well-written, though, and the science is believable. It sounds convincing to a non-scientist at least. It's short and can be read in ten minutes or so, and has good entertainment value.
NF2 is a rare neurological disorder that affects 1 in 40,000 people and it is life threatening....there is no cure....yet. I am hoping to get awareness about NF2 out to as many people as I can. Knowledge is power. God Bless. ~ Julia, Sachse, TX ~
