Each of us sometimes feels isolated, alone, a stranger in a strange land--and this story is beautifully told.

11/27/2008 Marilyn Grant said: A murder mystery that takes a 15-year-old Autistic boy down a road the reader doesn't anticipate going. Mark Haddon does an excellent job getting inside young Christopher's head and an even better job at taking us with him. A great read!
