I loved this book. It felt like comforting woman-talk to me. It's about the concerns of women, how we love, how we adapt, how we move on, how we support each other. I found it a lovely companion as I made dinner and puttered about. (That's what make audiobooks great, right?) I saw the autism in this book as an example of the uniqueness we all bring to life.

I enjoyed the book. Have not read her other books. It was about more than just autism which gave the book more depth. I had a little trouble with the volume, Debra Messing's intonation went up and down to the point it was too loud at some points and too quiet at others.

did not like this book as well as Still Alice and Left Neglected. seemed to be about marriage relationships rather than autism (Anthony).

Loved the book, and thougt the reader did a phenomenal job. Initially had somewhat mixed feelings, but as the plot developed became rapt. Overall, I thought this was an excellent book, exploring human experiences and describing the life of an autistic child in a unique and memorable way.

i suggest the comments under the book edition be seen ... ....... although varied, i really liked Genova's first two novels, so i will listen to this one as well ... .... no matter what, i will still look for her 4th novel as she continues to stretch her writing muscles - perhaps she'll go back to her original formula which i found phenomenal. for now, i will look forward to listening and hopefully also Love Anthony.
