Christian, musician (piano & guitar), singer (Aussie, NZ, Country & Gospel), love nature, animal rescue primarily dogs in my case. Love God!
Not what I expected but very interesting and well narrated. I highly recommend this book to anyone. It was a informative look into the mind of an autistic child.
I really enjoyed this story and the narrator. It's a unique story told from a unique perspective from a brilliant autistic boy and the mysteries of the world he lives in. I highly recommend it!
I did not read it, only listened.
This is a wonderfully imagined book without a false note. For quite a while, I thought it was a true story. How the author managed it, I cannot tell. The narration was also perfect.
Accurate (as far as high functioning autism is concerned), interesting and eccentric
The way Christopher sees the world around him and explains it. I have high functioning autism and I could relate to so much of what he said.
When Ed gives Christopher the puppy. Ed was so wrong in all of this but you somewhat see why he did what he did (not that most people would do that but you kind of see it in the book) and you see how he knows that he has a lot of work to do to rebuild his relationship which has been forever altered.
If you are interested in autism and in particular, about what it is like to have high functioning autism, this book is one you should read. I thought the author was autistic but learned he was a teacher of autistic pupils at one point. Still, his ability to explain why Christopher does and thinks and feels the way he does is outstanding!
I'm not sure I would have enjoyed this book as much if I were reading it. I thought the narrator was outstanding. The story was engaging and interesting, containing the right amount of realistic drama, and I enjoyed having a sense of what it is like to be in the mind of someone who is highly sensitive (other than my own). I felt it was a bit tedious at times, but that exemplifies the main character.
I loved getting the insight into the mind of someone who obviously processes the world differently
This is the same question as above
For the most part.
I was confused at the beginning but that was because I had no idea what it was about. The further I read the more I wanted to listen.
Don't be weirded out about the chapters! I thought it was broken at first, but they're suppose to skip.
I've with people on the autism spectrum/Asperger's and this was such an accurate snapshot of how they relate to the world.
