One of the most enjoyable books I've encountered in a while. An informative glimpse into the world through different eyes, with all the elements of great story. Grabbed for my mp3 player at every free moment to keep this story going.
Very much. Like another book, Room, having a point of view from a person who thinks (processes things) differently than most of us pulls you in so deep that you just have to keep listening. I went from interested, to devoted, to afraid, to proud of the main character.
I liked Shoivan because she treated Christopher plainly, yet she didn't lie. Oh, how I wish I could break down hugely difficult things into easily understandable words.
I have not. He reads for books that I happen to read rather than imbibe the audio version
Yes. Not to give any story away, but train hallways often overwhelm me because of the echo and compression of loud noises. I wanted to hug that character close.
Looking through Christopher's eyes was a great way to go through the story. The narrator was perfect for this book.
I wasn't sure what to expect from the book. I bought it because I love the narrator's performance which didn't disappoint me at all. The story itself was okay but about half way through I was anxious for the story to end.
A young boy re tells an incredible story stemming from an incident finding a dog. Story goes beyond that night.
I throughly enjoyed Christopher's many explanations and his different perspective. Those insights were worth the read by themselves. I also empathized when Christopher became overwhelmed or confused. However, I felt that the portrayal of Christopher as having no feelings at all for others was inaccurate and unfair to people with autism. Not being able to express or adequately process feelings is not the same as not having them. I also didn't understand the point of having him a carry a knife everywhere. Overall, the book had some very good moments but lacked heart. I enjoyed Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project much more.
