The main character, Lou, is a man with high functioning autism who manages to, just about, make his way in the world of work and 'normal' friends. The parts of the book that include his first person narrative are spot on with their descriptions of his distorted physical and social perception of the world around him.
Other reviews have described the story in more detail. I would just say that this book is a must read for anyone whose life is affected by autism in any way.
It is powerful and moving and perhaps surprisingly, not depressing!
I liked it and found that I was very captivated with it from the start - would be a good film I think - but perhaps that has already been done in "Rainman" even though that was a very different story all together.
