You should be so lucky to get stuck on a long trip with Ron Susskind doing the talking.This isn't a Pulitzer prize winning writer simply reading his book ... it's a father sharing his family's story revolving around his autistic son Owen.
At the center of the story is Owen, an autistic boy, trapped in his own mind with the only door the Wonderful World of Disney animation.
Susskind breathes life into his son Owen and takes us on a journey revealing the hidden world of autism.
This book will make you laugh ... and cry ... but hearing Owen tell his own story at the conclusion is profound.
5 stars ***** ... a gifted writer tells an intimate family story about a very special son and an army of sidekicks who hold on to him as he fights to connect with life outside his mind ... "Life, Animated" ... is Love, Animated. 5 Stars *****
