@lapis it's frustrating because I see it recommended a *lot* by NTs who think it's a great representation and have only heard bad things from actual autistics. Granted I haven't read it myself, but that kind of tells me the NTs aren't listening and I probably don't trust them or their opinions.
@zephasaurus_hex I will confess I don't completely hate the book. It's a really interesting premise where it's a faux mystery-book.
If it were any other book I'd probably fawn over it! (It's also worth noting I read it BEFORE I was diagnosed, which certainly meant I didn't pick up on everything)
But it's like, yeah, it's great representation if you associate autism with never understanding anything and such.
