I've quite liked this one! It was very interesting to read a book written by an even more obsessed mind with Maths than mine :) And it was a good way to have a glimpse of the mind of an autist kid. I think that most often than not he is right and I can see why it's hard for him to understand people.
Thanks tho for the loan (and the patience ;)).

Very good book.
The author writes like a scientist. The Monty Hill problem has caused heated discussions among the persons that were willing to think about it. Me included.
There are several important issues raised by the narrator about how people deal with a lot of things. About things that are logical or rational, but emotion is mostly separated, which leads to simple and apparently clear but false conclusions sometimes (can't give an example but I remember it was there).
The only think relevant that I disliked was that the book starts as an investigation or detective story, but loses 'it' by the middle of the book.
