Amazing book to buy and enjoy reading

Curiously hilarious!The synopsis of this book interested me and I bought it and so I can say that I got more than what I had thought.I had expected this book to be a mystery like Agatha Christie or Hardy Boys since it talked about a boy playing detective but I was in for a surprise and a welcomed one at that.

You laugh and you cry!a boy suffering from Autism describes behaviors of human beings in unintentional funny ways! Sometimes you laugh and sometimes you pause & think about your own life...a very unusual way of story telling! Worth it!!

The Best of all novels i hav read so far...I have read many a great novels but this is without a doubt the most intelligent and thought provoking.The author seems seduced by philosophical ideas and mathematics and in order to expel them out he takes shape as an autistic boy.I read on wikipedia that he worked with autistic children and so he designs the mental condition of the autistic narrator perfectly.The book is a perfect read for those who are interested in unconventional ideas.

Deceptive text that blends humour with serious metaphysical issuesI've gone thru this book and found it extremely interesting particularly bcoz of d peculiar thinking of the autistic boy Christopher and the philosophical questions slyly raised thru d story. A math prodigy, Christopher lives in his makebelief world and gets disappointed at every step as he tries to understand d outer world. Christopher thinks in images and this thought process is conveyed thru d numerous photographs, diagrams and charts inserted into the text (which is a postmodern trait). The inefficacy of language to convey our thoughts is highlighted thru various events in d story. Christo… (Expand)

Totally different kinda book!Right from the start till the end, you would never feel bored because of the series of events in this book. Its so much interesting that you will definitely prefer to finish the book in one go!!

Great book!You would be wrong to presume that this book is meant for children. It's not. There's a lot of quirky things a discerning reader will find (take a look at the page numbers for example). All in all, a very nice read.

Okay, written by a kid!This book is definitely written in a kiddish style, and the language is also simple and totally understandable to anyone. But, when it comes to reading the story of Christopher, you just can not hold up to it as the story line is normal, and I feel its highly exaggerated by the reviews and the story introduction. Personally I did not find this book very much interesting. Only the dog mystery keeps you going to the end.
