I read this book in one sitting. Plot-wise it looked so simple at first, but as I read through there were so much more entanglements than I expected. Also- I love reading POVs of people who see the world differently. Christopher Boone's is no exception. :) Read full review

This book reads a junior high school level because the character is a 15yo kid with something like asperger's. It wasn't my normal kind of book, but it was a well written and interesting humanistic story. Read full review

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.
