I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book and how quick of a read it was. The author did a masterful job of presenting a person whose mind doesn’t work in quite the same way as most people, and also of making him sympathetic and even easy to relate to at times. I found myself liking Christopher a lot and hoping that everything worked out for him. Though the story isn’t quite the murder mystery it seemed to be promoted as, it’s engaging in its own right, and really kind of heartbreaking, especially at the end. So often we see “odd” people from the outside and make no attempt to figure out their motivations or their true feelings, that it was refreshing and interesting to see an author present an autistic person from their own point of view.
