I have a related condition to Asperger's Syndrome.
I only read the first couple of lines of the review.
At NO point in the book does the author say his narrator has any particular condition. He does mention attending a school for people with disabilities. The author is on record as regretting that there is mention of Asperger's related conditions in material from the publisher.
Nonetheless I found it a very powerful read and strongly recommend it to anyone with an open mind, who is prepared to consider issues from different perspectives.
Such 'hidden' disabilities last a lifetime although there is little public consideration of there impacts on adults. Many adults learn to adapt to the conditions as the narrator is beginning so to do and hence the book ends on a very optimistic note.
I am a former Criminal Justice Professional with a 30 year Career in the UK Penal system. There are very many people with hidden neurological disabilities in prison - that is the one place in society, where, no assessment is needed to become a resident, once a person has behaved in certain ways! Sadly treatment and support facilities are few anywhere in society for such adults.
