One of the best books I've ever read (I've read it twice). The movie was terrible; don't use that as a guide!

A strange, but infinitely rewarding book. About a teenage autistic boy, told first person. Haddon (the author) has captured just perfectly.

I loved the book (like many), and then thought that listening to this (several years later) was a great way to relive that experience.

Only a bit dated, but this one is so good that anytime in the next few years, if you're going to Tuscany, you have to have it. If you don't want this one, then sprin for the newer version -- tho' it won't be much better.


Faithful: Two Diehard Boston Red Sox Fans Chronicle the Historic 2004 Season
Review Date: 2/8/2007
Helpful Score: 2


If you're a Red Sox fan, you must read this. If you're a baseball fan interested who wonders about the crazy "Red Sox Nation", you must read this. If you're a Yankees fan, probably not. If you hate baseball, don't even consider it.
