This book was so hard to put down. Haddon did a fabulous job of creating a character that feels so real and sincere. My heart instantly melted for the protagonist and the challenges he faces. I loved the way the justifications and rationale for the Christopher's behavior were revealed. This novel reminded me that we all have unique perspectives and that even though something may not immediately make sense to me, it may make perfect sense for someone else. Great read - especially for anyone who is closely or distantly connected to someone on the autism spectrum in their life.
