As a mother of a 17 year old boy with autism, this book could have been my life. I have lived the same experiences, emotions, guilt and happiness as this mother. This is the first book I have read where the boy is given real feelings and not portrayed like a robot. My son is sweet and innocent and loving and such a gift. I have learned so much from him. am so grateful to Lisa Genova for writing this wonderful, touching, realistic story. Thank you!
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.
This book draws the reader in and keeps him interested. The narrator's modulation made it difficult to hear at times, especially if back ground noise in my environment was occurring. She would drop the volume of her voice quite often to display emotion but this made it difficult to hear.
