One man’s terrifying journey out of his mind - and into many others!
Fletcher was dying. But it wasn’t that simple. His mind refused to follow his body; instead, it moved from brain to brain: young, old, healthy, ill, men, women. But now he found himself in the brain of Charles Searle, the twisted scientist who had altered Fletcher’s mind, leaving him a disembodied personality.
Fletcher now shared his brain.
And Searle was dying.

Fletcher is an oppressed man with deep misgivings about closeness. He is repressed but has a good heart. Although firmly in his middle age, he finds unexpectedly he has an unheard of ability: he can connect with other people in a way which is supposed to be impossible.
Fletcher's ability to connect is unexpectedly activated.
Macintosh's novel makes a thoughtful exploration of the situation. The concept furnishes a way to get a long view of people's interior lives. It's not an action/adventure style of sci-fi; yet, if your interested in the subject of human frailty interplaying with human strength it's quite nicely handled- luckily, heavy themes- which do touch on personal disasters at points- are not pushed into the realm of Kafkaesque despair.
Steve West picks a really nice performance tone that matches Transmigration's thoughtful and perhaps even strangely playful scenarios.
This book is entertaining by virtue of nice writing and thoughtfulness. If your looking for a hero courageous right out of the gate you will probably find this book very unsatisfying and should give it a miss.
