consecration: what you guys think of this?

if you haven't read it, you should.

I don't think I have ever read a book that was this intense, this discriptive, and so different then anything else.

and to think I read this in my senior english class, usually seriors are reading a brave new world or grapes of wrath or some weird old book, man is my english teacher cool!

I see this book every time I'm at a book store. Can you give me a brief run-down of what it's about?

and autistic boy who finds a dog murdered and sets out to find out who did it and when he does, he finds out A LOT MORE about his family and life.

it really puts you inside the mind of an autistic kid, there are a million math problems and puzzles in the book as this kid explores.

I dont want to give much more away.

Oh, wow. Now I'm intrigued. I'll add it to my summer reading list. Thanks!

Oh god yes! I love this book!
I read it around Summertime last year and kept telling everyone how fabulous it was.

This a really good book. Very different.

I just read the book, and I thought it was interesting that the word "autistic" didn't seem to be used at all.

More interesting is the fact that none of the blubs on the back used it either -- in fact, the only place it comes up is in the "about the author" section which mentions that he worked with children with autism.

Anyway, good book, and a quick read too.

yeah. I read this book in my english class and discussions where held every day wondering if this kid was really autisic or not. I said we could never know because it was all threw his point of view and unless some one said it directly to his face, yeah.... there was no proof.

fuck yea a quick read. I read it in a couple of days, but I am sure id have read it faster if I hadnt been busy with school. It made english class less stressful for me.

I think the more important issue isn't whether or not he actually "is" autistic, but that according to the blurbs from newspapers, other authors, etc. didn't seem to think that autism was actually an important subject of a book.
