Love Anthony by Lisa Genova
I love Genova's first book, Still Alice. I thought her second book, Left Neglect, was okay (see review here). I was excited to hear she had a 3rd book out!
I think now that I am a mum, I can understand the mum/child connection better. The aspect I love the most about this book, is for me to learn more about autism from the autistic person's perspective as I do not know a lot about it, and it was eye opening. This reminds me of Still Alice in that regard.
However, I felt that there is an aspect of the story that is a bit unbelievable. I don't want to spoil it by revealing what it is, but for those of you who had read it would know what I mean. Is it impossible? Maybe, maybe not, I don't know, but I felt it weakened the story. Thus I gave it 3.75 Stars since I couldn't decide between 3.5 or 4.
Note - The book was borrowed from the library.
