Transference is a telepathy tale about a psychiatrist, Derek Verbenk, who has been disgraced. He practices from his home and is almost doing better until a new patient shows up, turning this situation around. With a much-emphasized humorous touch, this novel is light-hearted yet very enjoyable to read.
Besides the humor, the story focuses on mental health, social isolation, and politics, which I found to be a clever touch from the author, it’s always hard to include topics such as the ones mentioned humorously.
I found the cover to certainly reflect the content of the material. The literature was witty, and the pace was suitable for the storyline.
One thing to look out for was also the dark nature of the story. The description was just enough to nurture the imagination, and I enjoyed the way the author used her skills in making the reader bond with the characters. I would have appreciated it more if the work was professionally edited. However, what did exist was a very nicely written story. I recommend this story to people that enjoy literary fiction.
