An advanced level of German is required to understand this book.
The story of Christopher Boone is absolutely gripping. I am not sure if it is an adequate description of life with Asperger's Syndrome but it still is a great story. The way the book is written from the perspective of Christopher is fantastic and it is impossible to put down. I very much enjoyed sharing this adventure with the main character and loved how he described the world.
Die Geschichte von Christopher Boone is faszinierend. Ich weiß nicht, ob es eine tatsächliche Beschreibung eines Lebens mit Asperger Syndrom ist. Die Art in der das Buch aus der Sicht von Christopher geschrieben ist, ist wunderbar, von der Geschichte bis zur Nummerierung der Kapitel. Die Geschichte ist absolut fesselnd und es bereitet große Freude den Alltag und seine Abenteuer mit Christopher zu teilen.
