How did you like the end of the book? Do you think Christopher can really do anything?

Yes, I really think that Christopher is slowly gathering tools to use to really do something with his life, slowly but surely.

I think the future looks promising for Christopher. Of course, he'll still have his challenges, but he's learning to deal with them.

I didn't want this book to end, because though I mentioned that I had trouble getting into it, once I did, I felt like I cared a lot about Christopher and I wanted to stay with him even longer.

It has made me interested in reading more about autism, and I want to read LOOK ME IN THE EYE next. I wonder how the two books might compare, and I wonder too what someone like John Elder Robison might think about CURIOUS INCIDENT.

Just thoughts that I'm having, I guess this isn't a very coherent answer! Smile

"Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" is also about a boy with autism.
