New, confused. His powers unknown.
No longer viable in the test pool, he remains in isolation.
Patient 77Reclassified to staff status. Useful, malleable.
Confined in a sterile research facility and treated like a lab rat, Chris is alone and terrified. His special powers are his only escape, allowing him to psychically connect with other patients.
Alone in his cell for longer than he can remember, Vance is hungry. When newcomer Chris makes a mental connection, Vance is intrigued and soon wants more than just conversation.
Chris and Vance seek comfort with each other, and with Simon - the only staff member who's shown them a hint of compassion. Their relationships develop during stolen moments, and they turn their thoughts to escape. But as Dr. Dalhousie's madness spirals, more than cell walls threaten to keep them apart....

What could Christine Price have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I never understood how and why the social bonds formed between the "heros" of this story. There was no explenation, just boom! and there it was. All the characters felt one dimensional most of the time.This book should have been shorter, and then maybe it wouldn't have felt so empty of substance.
Any additional comments?
Jack LeFleur was good. Try A Reason to Believe instead.

Once you've invested several hours in a book, you feel obligated to finish it, even if it's no longer enjoyable—not that this was ever enjoyable. I just assumed at some point I'd get into it. I never did. The story is simply repetitive and boring, and the characters not particularly likable.
The narration is fine.
