Intriguing and emotional, Nobel Genes is the story of an ordinary boy who has been told he has a genius father. Rune Michaels explores the human side of nature versus nurture with delicate poise; Frederic Basso's performance is equally nuanced. Filled with innocence and raw naïveté, Basso's voice acting is spot on. Exciting and filled with intrigue, Nobel Genes is a pause-resisting coming-of-age thriller about the way we deal with our perceived potential.
It's tough to measure up to your parents' expectations. Imagine how much harder it would be if your mother told you that your biological father - whom you'd never met - was a Nobel prize-winning genius? What if, after years of testing and tutoring, you never showed that particular spark of brilliance? What if you found out that you'd been living a lie, and that the truth was darker than you could have imagined?
Does it matter who you come from? Or are we all just made from dust?
In Rune Michaels's most powerful novel yet, she examines the fragile emotions surrounding finding out who we are and what we’re made of.
