I liked this one a lot, also. A good ending to a mostly pleasing series. And once again they set it up so that you really want to continue on with the series.

I'm reading this right now, and part of it bothers me, and part of it amuses me. It's about a young journalist (the author) who is torn between the cultural identity that Iran imposes upon it's youth (very Western) as well as her life in Northern California. I lived in Northern Cali for a while, so many of the places she talks about brings back some good memories...sort of like how the Kite Runner displays things. But, this is much more interesting than the Kite Runner (so far), because the author talks about growing up, confused culturally (which I don't blame her), and just everything to do with Iran and the Iranian revolution, and being Iranian in America as well as being American in Iran. It's fun. Okay, so I've been reading this for a little over a month, and I'm still not done with it! It's actually a good read, but I can't seem to finish it. I have maybe 80 pages left, so we'll see, maybe I'll finish it by the end of the year! I'm so done with this book. I actually only had around 4o pages left, but it got a little drab. So I'm done, not gonna finish reading it. Sorry. But it was good while I was reading it. An airplane read.

I loved this book. Told from the perspective of a 15-year-old autistic boy, it is in some ways similar to Vernon God Little, but was the farthest thing from a farce since the narrator had almost no ability whatsoever to express emotion, let alone a sense of humour. My book club had an interesting discussion regarding whether it would be likely that a child with autism would be as self-aware regarding their condition as Christopher was in this book. I suppose that may be something once can't really know, since a person with that degree of autism couldn't verbalize their experience well enough to tell us. I particularly enjoyed the use of diagrams to show the logical way Christopher thinks. Click here for example.
