I found this book very intriguing and difficult to put down. I was fascinated by the narrator's point of view. It was so different from anything I've ever read. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a change of pace in the mystery genre or anyone looking for a little insight into the mind of autism.
As an educator, this book had been recommended to me by several colleagues but I'd never taken the time to pick it up. It was a fascinating read, and I'm especially glad I chose to listen to it on audible.com.
I cannot urge you enough to get this book. It gives such insight into a young man with Autism and and it's beautifully told. The best audio book I've gotten so far!
As an avid reader of only the books I like, I have truly enjoyed this book. Mark Haddon writes with such talent thru the eyes of our young hero. The story unfolds in an intriguing saga that arouses curiosity and whets the appetite for more. The last page leaves you reading the author's bio because you just aren't ready for the story to be over. Kudos to Jeff Woodman for his execellent preformance! Standing ovation.
Throws you into the main characters point of view so well and captivates you - or it do so for me. I started and finished it the same day. Great book. Reader has a British Accent to boot!
The name is for my wife, the photo is for the old man.
It's a little hard to listen to, given the problems of the boy protagonist. But it seems realistic, and I have a son who shared some of the traits. It was well worth it, and written in a fairly unique voice. Very expressive. The reader didn't get in the way, at all.
This was a really interesting and touching story that worked much better than I thought it was as an audiobook. The reader was excellent, and I enjoyed it immensely!
A must have for struggling high school readers; this would make a great summer reading book! It is very well done, easy to understand.
Absolutely loved it. The narrator does a fantastic job, really makes the book. I was sad to see it end, kinda hoping for a sequel.
