Conhecimento Comum



Wie schon die ersten beiden Bände, hat mir auch der 3. Teil wieder sehr gut gefallen. Einiges kam mir auch sehr bekannt vor - der Umgang mit "besonderen" Kindern ist nicht nur im australischen Schulsystem manchmal schwierig...
Das Rosie-Resultat ist eigentlich das Hudson-Projekt, sprich der Versuch von Don Tillman, seinem (eventuell oder auch nicht autistischen) Sohn zu helfen, sich im Schulsystem anzupassen. Nebenbei geht es auch um die Schwierigkeiten, die ein elterlicher Rollentausch nicht nur für den Sohn, sondern auch für die Umgebung mit sich bringt.
Toll geschrieben, toll gelesen - klare Leseempfehlung für dieses Buch und die ganze Serie.

My partner really liked it. Rare example where we are on opposite sides of a book review.

I loved this book. I loved Don Tillman, despite the fact that he's sure that the way to meet the perfect wife is to find the woman who answers his detailed questionnaire to his satisfaction.

Enter Rosie. She probably would score about 0% on this questionnaire. She's impulsive and chaotic where Don is organised and predictable. This is their story. This book is clever, funny, poignant, endearing and original. Read it.

Critiques that find use of a sort of autistic caricarure in the main role explotative feel relevant in part, but the author does show great skill at weaving a love story around a particular conscious state. The perspective, however incomplete and
simplified of a character that is unable to understand enotion and how he discovers the factors that express love is interesting and revealing of many stereotypes we adopt.

Ultimately an entertaining story plotted around a different type of consciousness, which is a bit too kuch of a fairy tale and can be insensitive to situations where people are living with actual medical conditions that are similar.

I feel despite everything it is a worthwhile read.
