I enjoyed this book. It was interesting in that it was written from the persective of someone who, although many of us feel and say we can to some degree, I cannot truly relate to. Our protagonist has Asperger's Syndrome. Yes, we all have quirks but not enough to make us stop our world and shut down regardless of the danger it puts ourselves in.

The book was simple and maybe this was by design. Clearly the language and the descriptive structure was prescribed by the choice of narrator but the scenario was too.

I would say that there was little, if anything, to challenge an open minded reader with even the passing experience of anyone with so called "Special Needs". Even so, it was an enjoyable read.
