I really enjoyed this book. Christopher was just too pure for the world, and I wanted to hug him, but he would have hated that. Christoper is an autistic boy who finds the neighbor's dog murdered. Initially he is blamed for it because he's found at the scene of the crime cradling the dog. Christ...

With the growing number of kids being diagnosed with Autism or Asperger's, this book was a good look at families and their coping mechanisms and how literal things can be taken. Christopher gets out of bed and walks around outside and while doing this, he finds a neighbor's dog stabbed to death w...

This has been on my list for quite some time. I heard the protagonist was autistic and, while it was never explicitly stated, I appreciated this.

This reminded me a lot of ROOM. Lacking the chroniclers limitations, we can read between the lines, anticipate and fear much that escapes them. It's likely that people that enjoyed/hated that one will feel similarly about this one. I lack knowledge or real life contact with people of the autistic ...

I enjoyed this story so much. It's told from a teen boy's point of view. He has autism. I've never thought about things in such a way. It's worth reading for the unique perspective, but the storyline is very interesting also. He investigates everything. He's intelligent and no nonsense. It sh...

I read this recently for my book club and I wish I could say I enjoyed it as much as most of the other’s there seemed to. Christopher Boone, a fifteen year old boy with Asperger’s syndrome, stumbles upon the body of his neighbour’s dog. Christopher has a supremely logical brain and decides he’ll t...

A funny and poignant story about a young boy discovering himself and dealing with insecurities. Reminiscent of that of The Rosie Project, this little book is definitely one you'll remember. A quick read that sticks with you. Christopher knows every prime number and the capitals to all the countri...

A great look through the eyes of a boy with severe autism (and a somewhat dysfunctional family). The unselfish goodness of humanity is the unexpected hero in this story. Read it and see the world differently.
