A good read, but don't go in expecting some complex whodunit; the book is more about Christopher and his experiences than anything else, with the pretty easy mystery as a backdrop. I would say that this is a good book to begin to understand how people on the autism spectrum think, but the reader should keep in mind that it's called a spectrum for a reason. I have Asperger's and I was often surprised at both how different Christopher's thought process is from mine. 

Fresh, Witty and a new perspective all over!
