Publisher's Summary

Kit has been projecting into other species for seven years. Longer than anyone else at ShenCorp. Longer than any of the scientists thought possible. But lately she has the feeling that when she jumps, she isn't alone....

Since she was 12, Kit has been a phenomenaut, her consciousness projected into the bodies of lab-grown animals for the purpose of research. Kit experiences a multitude of other lives - fighting and fleeing, predator and prey - always hoping, but never quite believing, that her work will help humans better understand the other species living alongside them.

But after a jump as an urban fox ends in disaster, Kit begins to suspect that those she has trusted for her entire working life may be out to cause her harm. And as she delves deeper into the events of that night, her world begins to shift in ways she had never thought possible.

What the Critics Say

"A work of intelligent, thought-provoking, spine-chilling science fiction that will delight and terrify in equal measure. Exciting, horrifying and compelling." (Jack Wolf, author of The Tale of Raw Head and Bloody Bones)

    "Not my cup of tea"

    Let me start by saying, I'm not a Sci-Fi fan generally. I got this book because I thought my love of animals and interest in them would be enough for me to enjoy this book. It wasn't. With that being said, if you like Sci-Fi, far out books, this may be for you. I also listened to this book rather than read it. That was a problem because it was way too complex, in my opinion, for an audiobook. I couldn't follow it. It jumped all around and confused me countless times. I tried to rewind several times, but that's tough to do in the car. This was one instance where I thought it might make a better movie than a book because the visuals would have helped me. I thought about quitting several times, but I kept thinking it would all come together for me in the end. It didn't. I was still confused and some things weren't answered for me. Some were, but I still didn't understand the answers when I got them. Credit to the author for the concept and the research. I'm sure some will enjoy it. Overall, this book was just over my head and wasn't my cup of tea.

    "Great book for animal lovers"

    The author communicates so beautifully the essence of the animals she writes about in a very clever way combining a unique plot with very well developed characters. It was very entertaining. At the beginning of the book it was hard to tell who the narrator/author was speaking for, but I was quickly able to pick up and get into the perspective. The narrator does a beautiful performance. It was a very entertaining story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend it!

    "Ambitious Story Telling"

    I am intrigued enough by The Many Selves of Katherine North that will certainly read it again and recommend it to adult friends and family. It is science fiction but not the usual sort. There is no fantasy in this story apart from the occasional delusions of Kit and her fellow teenage "phenomonauts ". They work in cutting edge science at Shen Corp run by a duplicitous CEO.
    Kit's story is told in the first person, an interior subjective memory of her seven years "inhabiting" the bodies of creatures as diverse as foxes, spiders, birds, bats and a dolphin. She is zoologist observing from the inside. Kit's is also a coming of age story compounded and confused by her work. She is so completely so many animal beings, that knowing her identity, who or what she is, is not easy. Then her life gets grown up and terrifying when her CEO boss seeks to involve her in work she finds unethical. Kit struggles to understand her scientific work, her colleague Buckley,

    "Wonderful!"

    Loved it! The author let you feel what it might be like to be human consciousness in an animals body. I wish she had been a wolf! Great idea for a story. Made you think. This book was one that I was sad when it came to an end. Great narration.

    "An interesting slowpaced excursion into perception"

    this story will stay with me a long time. it's not an aventurine so much as a slow discovery of self and other. I struggled a bit following 'Kits' back and forth descriptions of her present struggle and her past excursions into the consciousness of various animals. But this struggle seemed to mirror her own so maybe that was just good writing.

    "Dull and Dragging"

    The storyline is very slow. Very British and dull . very disappointing.The theory of speaking with the animals could have created a great arena for interaction,but misses by smothering the story with tedium.

    "Confusing"

    I did enjoy this book but found the 'jumping' around between chapters quite confusing, otherwise a good read
