Entering Christopher’s world and I enjoyed seeing things that I wouldn’t normally think about in a new light, especially the scenes in London on the Underground.

This was charming, but had a lot of language. So interesting hearing the story told from the point of view of a teenage boy with Asperger’s

I’ve been meaning to read this book for a long while. Whilst it wasn’t as good as my expectations, I did find it interesting to enter the life and character of Christopher and his unique experience of the world. The London Underground scenes were particularly powerful, as it encourages the reader to reimagine what is familiar to us. And I love the final line - that, above all, Christopher was brave, overcame his fears, and did what he never thought he could do. And that’s certainly inspiring.
