Read from October 10 to 11, 2010

An excellent novel. I'm not sure it accurately represents how someone who is high-functioning Autistic might think, but I don't think that's the point. Haddon has created an amazing piece of metafiction, first and foremost; the main character walks us through all of the complicated problems of narration (as well as a healthy dose of A-level maths). A bit saccharine, especially toward the end, but HIGHLY recommended.
