We get plenty of examples of Don's quirky character in the first few chapters of the book. It is never outright stated in the book that Don may have Asperger's Syndrome. It is left up to the reader to draw that conclusion themselves based on his behaviour.

Did you like this inconclusive approach to our introduction to Don or do you think it would have worked better to address the issue in a more straightforward way?

Anna (iudita) | 450 comments I rather liked that the reader was left to make their own assumptions about Don's behaviour. It allowed us to enjoy his oddities and laugh at them instead of focusing on the Aspergers itself. It allowed Don to just be quirky Don instead of Don who has Aspergers Syndrome.

Karen (karen1278) | 428 comments I think it's great that the author leaves us to draw our own conclusion as to how Don may be labelled. It is such an entertaining read.
