Excellent story and very intelligent Shiras gave a lot f thought to the science as well as the emotional side Exhalation of the story and it comeff very ahead Galileo of it s time I think it would make a great movie but everyone would think it s an X Men ripoff even though thepposite is somewhat true I appreciate the personal touch f the doctor s interactions with the kids and their sophisticated minds but always knowing they are still
*children rated g *Rated G clean If you liked Flowers for Algernon because you could follow ne man s journey to genius you will like this book about a group f genius children The dialogue got very technical at spots which made the book seem to drag but if you were in an intellectual mood and wanted to learn things indirectly about psychology then you d enjoy those parts Wilmar Shiras Children f the Atom is in many ways a classic 1950s sf thoughtpiece novel There s a great deal Nemico of dialogue not a lotf action and it is unashamedly didactic Even so I enjoyed it very much for reasons which may be somewhat idiosyncraticThe plot Cannella e polvere da sparo of the novel is uite simple School psychologist Peter Welles is called in to talk to a young teenager Tim who seems to be completelyrdinary in every way but his teacher senses that something is not uite as it seems and is worried about him Welles uickly discovers that Tim is in fact a super intelligent and very lonely child pretending to be normal that this is in fact his survival strategy but what he needs most is friendship and real intellectual stimulation Having learned that Tim an rphan raised by his grandparents was born shortly after his parents were exposed to high levels f radiation in an explosion in a nuclear weapons plant Welles reasons that there are thers like Tim and the two set ut to find themNot al the are thers like Tim and the two set ut to find themNot al the have been as lucky in finding ways to avoid drawing attention to themselves the first child they find Elsie is a patient in a mental hospital nor have all the children grown up as well adjusted DOGA AST one child Fred displays a serious lackf empathy and emotional affect having devoted himself entirely to intellectual development These issues however are addressed with relative ease Poems (The I Tatti Renaissance Library) once Welles manages to bring all the children he can find together inne community under the guidance Bleach, Volume 05 of several well chosen adults unthreatened by the extreme abilitiesf these Children Gather Together in My Name 1ST Edition of the atomLate in the story the children and their community are threatened by a rabble rousing preacher who has heard somef the details about the children and launches a pogrom against these malevolent mutants but the mob that attacks the school is uieted when they see Tim a boy that many f them have known in their community as the classmate f their children and the boy who delivered their evening paper for some years They also recognise Pete Welles the kindly school psychologist and another La maga delle spezie of the adults who was a local teacher This incident brings the children to a realisation that thenly way to avoid future threats is to integrate themselves into the larger community which they decide to do by attending normal school but continuing to live in their The Last Testament own community until they can gout into the world as adultsSeveral things struck me about this novel First the powerful cult f psychology that was such a key element f middle class culture in the 1950s and how the novel could never have been constructed as it was without this Second the focus n Jungian rather than Freudian psychology rather a departure from the norm although it s possible that Shiras did not want to have to deal with Freud s theories f psychosexual development in astory dealing with young teens Since I personally prefer Jung to Freud this was part The Art of Teaching the Bible: A Practical Guide for Adults of what I enjoyed about the novel seeing the children apply Jung s thinking about the animaanimus and the four basic personality functions to theirwn development as balanced human beingsI was also struck by the resolution and its belief that if the diffe.
