I've read most of those, and I like them too. I'll have to try some of those I haven't read.

I didn't know you liked the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time...I thought it was kind of weird even though I loved the premise of the book...I felt a little let down by it though...what did you like about it?

Babs, I liked it because it kind of gave me an insight about what autism is about. I also just liked the way it was written. Were you let down because of the ending?

Bullet for Babs said...

No...I liked it at first because he was an autistic kid who wanted to solve a mystery...well, actually, I guess I didn't like the end...I didn't like how he never really figured anything out and the solving of the mystery only came from someone's confession...

I kind of thought that even though he didn't figure out the mystery, he figured out other things (trying not to give the end away to those who haven't read it).
