I knew there was a story; once you find a dog with a fork through it, you know there's a story there. (Mark Haddon)
Oh my gosh. If you have not read this book yet, stop reading this blog and go get yourself a copy of it. It's really that good.
I work with autistic adults (amongst other developmental disabilities), and this book was amazing. I have no idea how accurate it is (whether or not this is the way someone with autism sees the world), but it certainly could be accurate.
Besides which, the book was just plain fun to read. Once I started it, I barely put it down. And I'm already planning to reread it.
