This is a story about a boy with autism. Once you have read it, you have read about one autistic boy.
It is so much more than a book about autism. It is a book about a boy. A book about a mother. A book about a wife. A book about a woman. A book about marriage. A book about adultery. A book about family. A book about friendship. A book about a photographer. A book about an author. A book about communication. A book about the meaning of life.
Debra Messing did a great job of narrating. She was easy to listen to and spoke at a good pace.
the story was really good but it was really the narration that i loved here! would love for debra to narrate more!
I liked the insight into Anthony's thoughts.
Anyone else....I couldn't listen in the car, she kept fading away. The same boring voice for all characters.
Looking through the looking glass
The insight and communication from Anthony and how he thought
When Anthony tries to explain to his Mum the solution for the 3 soldier fingers of toast..
I couldnt rename it-
I would recommend this book to a friend in print form because I think it would be a more enjoyable read than listen.
I found the audio version somewhat confusing because the narrator did not give enough differentiation to each of the different women "character voices." So I often found myself confused about who was speaking in that particular chapter. This is a book that would have been better served with a variety of narrator voices I believe.
I think this would make a very beautiful screen adaptation.
I was a little disappointed in "Love Anthony" as compared to Genova's "Still Alice." I see what she was aiming for, but the plot was just more convoluted. Again, perhaps a different narration style would have helped.
I loved this story. Eben though it is fiction, it's so accurate to the struggles we deal with everyday when u have a child on the spectrum. Thank u for giving my son a voice. and for voicing what is so difficult to admit sometimes. Great for anyone who has dealt with a child worth autism.
Yes - it was a beautiful look at humanity, starting over and independence.
The Mother's and Childs view of daily events. Looking at life through the eyes of autism.
I found her voice fell away at the end of sentences and I often had to have the volume on too loud in order to catch all of the story.
