However thinking about the story later, and I have no knowledge of autism, I am not sure an autistic guy could get by himself to another city by train and get to his mother when he doesn't know where she lives. especially when he is afraid of noise and commotion.
All and a all putting logic aside it's a great book and I recommend reading it!
Had heard of the Asperger syndrome but never really knew what it was. Congratulations to the author!!

[quote="MatDatPhatKat"]I read this book some time ago. I've got to say that I didn't enjoy it. I appreciate that it was quite clever, but, as a man with no experience of Aspergers Syndrome, I just found it dull. That's not to suggest that it isn't any good. I just prefer weightier, more epic tomes. I'd suggest that, like the Da Vinci Code, this book is in real danger of being over-hyped. If people expect too much from a book, they'll end up disappointed.[/quote]
Perhaps you should try to inform yourself as to what autism is and the asperger syndrome. Don't stay ignorant!
Definitely worth reading.
My brother is special needs and I can recognise some of the mannerisms in christopher in my brother. My brother has not got aspergers or autise but he is very ordered and good at remembering lists and numbers so it gave me as aspect into his head too.
