This book was really good.

I loved this book too. I was sceptical when I started it but thought it was great and was just so impressed by this kid with such difficulties to work through his fears and so forth and get done what need to get done. A lot of people made comparisons with Pleasure of My Company with this book. I didn't see it at first but just saying what I did it does make sense. I just recently bought my self a copy to keep of this book. Highly recommend it!

I read this book last year (or was it early this year?) & LOVED it!
I work in a school & some of the things the boy did & said made me laugh- I could SO imagine some autistic kids at my school doing/saying exactly the same. It was just brilliant!

I read this one earlier this year (I think) and want to thank Gretchen again for the recommendation

I read both Curious Incident & Pleasure of my Company. Loved them both. But did you read Steve Martin's other one, Shop Girl? I couldn't get through it. Everybody I talked to who read both Martin books felt the way I did.

I read Shopgirl and I thought it was okay but Pleasure was much better. Shopgirl is going to be a movie. Should be out this year. Maybe it already is. Martin is, of course, staring in it.
