I really wanted to like this book more than I did. It was really interesting to read through a character that is autistic. Mark Haddon really pulled that off wonderfully in his writing. I have no complaints there. I enjoyed reading how Christopher dealt with everyday life and how he viewed even the smallest things so differently than most do. It gave real insight. From the first page, I was immediately drawn into the story, and I simply couldn’t put it down. However, when I reached about halfway through the book it seemed to drag on and the story started to slowly fizzle out. That is where I started to have trouble with the book. I began to lose interest in a story that started off so great and that disappointed me greatly. If I was to judge only the beginning I would have given It 5 star rating, but I have to give it 3.5 stars instead. I would still recommend this book to someone because the author did such a wonderful job with helping us to understand life through Christopher’s eyes.
