Thoughtful, poignant, and unforgettable, The Speed of Dark is a gripping exploration into the world of Lou Arrendale, an autistic man who is offered a chance to try an experimental "cure" for his condition. Now Lou must decide if he should submit to a surgery that may change the way he views the world--and the very essence of who he is. "Compelling...an important literary achievement and a completely and utterly absorbing reading experience." --Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "A pwerful portrait...an engaging journey into the dark edges that define the self." --The Seattle Times… (mere)

    Den mystiske sag om hunden i natten : roman af Mark Haddon (tortoise)
    tortoise: Both are well-written novels with a first-person autistic-spectrum narrator. The Curious Incident has a better-constructed plot (the villain in The Speed of Dark is a bit cartoonish), but The Speed of Dark is I think more interesting as a commentary on autism.… (mere)

    Flowers for Algernon af Daniel Keyes (infiniteletters)
    infiniteletters: Charlie is definitely not like Lou, true. But their experiences and perspectives have the same mental effect on readers.

    Falling Free af Lois McMaster Bujold (LamontCranston)
    LamontCranston: Pathological corporate greed, manipulation of the disabled/differently abled, and both for space applications, but Falling Free has a much more proactive response to being exploited

This was very good, with a highly intriguing story. I liked the writing style (which reminded me a bit of John Wyndham) and I liked the main character. His different view on life was refreshing. The only thing I was not so happy about was the ending. I'm sure it conveyed a message of sorts (all things change, people can grow apart, that sort of thing), but I don't quite see why this was necessary. ( )

La autora de Restos de población, madre en la vida real de un autista, aborda la compleja y entrañable historia personal de un chico con problemas de autismo, Lou Arrendale. La tecnología de un futuro cercano le ofrece la posibilidad de optar por convertirse en normal dejando de ser quien es o, si lo desea, pese a todo, seguir siendo un completo extraño, un verdadero alienígena, en nuestro propio planeta.

I adored this book until the last...40 pages or so. The ending made me want to scream and throw things. Why cure him of his autism and take away everything that made Lou *him*? As an autistic person, the treatment of this as a *good* thing (because look, now he can be an astronaut! It only requires he give up everything pleasurable and good in his life, and all his relationships!) Ugh. Still 4 stars, because of just how much I loved everything preceding, but just...ugh. ( )

Brilliantly done. This is the _Flowers for Algernon_ for the 21st century. This is primarily 1st-person narration, with some 3rd-person, and there are brilliant style shifts that cue the narrator shifts, but also create the character and voice of the character-narrator. ( )

Bad parents make things hard and painful for their children and then say it was to help them grow. Growing and living are hard enough already; children do not need things to be harder.
I do not understand the rules about interrupting. It is always impolite for me to interrupt other people, but other people do not seem to think it is impolite for them to interrupt me in circumstances when I should not interrupt them.
