The story starts with an uneducated, wild boy, who, luckily, falls out of a tree on his grandpa's farm and mightily cracks his head on a large boulder. This experience affects his brain, such that he, not only gains special skills, but learns to think logically as well. We get to view his life both through his eyes and through other people's reactions to him. Given that he has no social skills, nor does he have access to emotions, he gets into very interesting situations since he is a young boy often on his own. The adults he encounters often attempt to help him or trap him when he is smarter than all of them.
His use of his special gifts, keeps the reader quickly moving with him through encounters with the mafia, bullies, and other interesting characters. His rigorous tendency to tell the truth without societal norms is very funny at times.
This book is well written, thoroughly enjoyable, and fast paced. I gave it 5 stars because it deserves 5 stars. Good for readers about 10-to-100 years old. I hope many readers support this author, who really knows how to write unique and excellent stories, so that we can continue to enjoy her work.
I ran across this book accidentally whike cruising Amazon. I bought it more out of courisoity than anything.
What an amazing journey the boy takes you through. Vividly seeing the world through the eyes and mind of an autistic boy who views it as a stream of colors that guide his decisions. Is something right? Is it wrong? He doesn't know right & wrong, only the color streaming from it - and it guides him.
But the story is so much deeper than that. There is no way to do this story justice with a book review. I can only say that if you are looking for a book that will pull you in and take you on n incredible journey then you must read "The Savant" for yourself.
Read the book. It is entertaining and uplifting.
