    Story
    (306)

    A brilliant and utterly original thinker, Andrew Solomon's journey began from his experience of being the gay child of straight parents. He wondered how other families accommodate children who have a variety of differences: families of people who are deaf, who are dwarfs, who have Down syndrome, who have autism, who have schizophrenia, who have multiple severe disabilities, who are prodigies, who commit crimes, who are transgender.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Far from the Tree to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version but I did quite enjoy the audio version. It was set up well for an audio book.


    What about Andrew Solomon’s performance did you like?

    Mr Solomon's performance was great. I loved it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Very long book, so had to be listened to over a couple weeks.


    Any additional comments?

    I was sad when the book ended; I wanted to keep learning.

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.
