Review

Haddon is to be congratulated for imagining a new kind of hero, for the humbling instruction this warm and often funny novel offers and for showing that the best lives are lived where difference is cherished -- Carol Ann Duffy ― Daily Telegraph Published On: 2003-06-04

The clash between Christopher's view of the world and the way it looks to the rest of us makes this an extraordinarily moving, often blackly funny read. It is hard to think of anyone who would not be moved and delighted by this book, so the decision to publish it simultaneously for older children and adults is certainly well-founded -- Jill Slotover ―
Financial Times Published On: 2003-06-04

Brilliantly inventive, full of dazzling set-pieces, unbearably sad, yet also skilfully dodging any encounters with sentimentality, this isn't simply the most original novel I've read in years . . . It's also one of the best ―
The Times Published On: 2003-05-07

A stroke of genius, as the advantages of having a naive, literal-minded boy in the driving seat are manifold . . . We do learn what it might feel like to have Asperger's Syndrome -- David Newnham ―
TES Published On: 2003-05-07

The book gave me that rare, greedy feeling of: this is so good I want to read it all at once but I mustn't or it will be over too soon -- Kate Kellaway ―
Observer Published On: 2003-05-07

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 August 2020
Took me about 24hrs to read this book. It was recommended to me by some mum's of ASD kids a Facebook group I'm on (as I have a, possibly 2 ASD boys) it was also recommend to me by my older ASD boys teacher from 2 years ago (shes my "book guru' lol if I want a new book to read she always has great suggestions) it was hard to get in to at first I with the way Christopher gos off track when writing he's book, once I got use to the way he off tracked I got though the book quickly. The way he describes he's thoughts and feelings, and how he feels around people it reminded me so much if my best friend, he will walk agesnt walls to put himself as far away from people as he can, he trusts me so I can be close to him and although I've always expected that This was part of who he was and not something he could help I never understood this made me realize how hard it could be for him. Christopher also has other behaviours that remind me so much of my boys and it makes me think so much of them. To see what could be going on in there mind I feel as actually helped me to understand them more. Would definitely recommend the book. My daughter has now laid claim to it to read after she's read the book she has on the go at the moment.
