It should be called the tedium. Overly wordy and overly dramatic, no character you can cheer for, only words words words
The tough questions weren't addressed. Why did he slip through the medical and mental health care system after all those suicide gestures? How does the threat of lawsuits rule the decisions and policies of hospitals? Those are the real stories of import to our society, completely ignored. And the "dig" flaw in narration is no small point, someone made a bad decision to let this go to market as is.
Ridiculous twists and turns with not one character you can buy into
Narrated it like a soap opera, over the top with drumroll and all
This falls right behind The Help in my all time favorites list. Great plot told well. I was engaged the whole time and the end left me thinking days after I'd finished it.
No, I don't like this author and her fairy tail, unrealistic, predictable romances. By the reviews I thought she'd written a real mystery/suspense this time. She did, for that very small first portion, then right back to her formula writing style.
Unless you are a staunch Christian searching, this is a huge waste of a credit!
I don't know if the storyline was ruined in the translation or if Japanese audiences expect such bizarre writing techniques. The never ending unrelated details where so distacting you can't find the essence of the story
I couldn't even get through this book. I tried skipping ahead, tried it at 2x speed, nothing worked to keep me in the book
The narrators did as good a job as they could with the material they were given.
Too many to mention. In addition, the sequence of events was so distracting you couldn't piece it together.
Its hard to believe the author can understand what is going on in the autistic boys mind, but once you get past that, its a great book, and an easy listen
