The worst book I've read in a while



It has great reviews, however, not from me. I was so bored reading this book that I would skip chapters that weren't relevant to the book. It's a work of fiction told from the viewpoint of an autistic boy. I have nothing against those with autism, but man, this book was slow! And boring! I even asked some mof's (my online friends) if they had read it, just to see if they could tell me what happened. They hadn't. So I had to finish reading it so I would know, but it was painful. I would not recommend this book.

I totally agree with you! I have only had a few books that I did not want to finish reading. This was one of them. I did not like it at all.

I take it you don't judge a book by its cover - or you wouldn't have had this experience. hehe I agree with Shauntel - your description made me laugh.

Nice to see you are not afraid to say your opinion, despite the positive reviews! I often see people to say "oh, wonderful" when they see some famous painting/sculpture/movie just not to look ignorant :)
I haven't read this book, but I have noticed my opinion and reviews are often completely different. And I think it's good - we shouldn't accept so easily others opinions and judgments!
Take care
