K-PAX by Gene Brewer

Alien visitor or mental patient? You won't find out until the end. Mainly, this is a story about the relationship between doctor and patient on present-day Earth. The main character Prot is brilliant, funny, and root for him no matter the outcome. The author does a great job posing social questions, and commenting on the general state of man.
I saw the movie first, so was excited to learn the books are a series!

I think the ideas presented are brilliant, but the execution is a bit lacking. I still give this book 5 stars, however, because reading after all is not about the details...but how much you enjoyed the journey. :)
