Picked this up at the Nottingham Meet-up

Journal Entry 4 by Morseman from Bolsover, Derbyshire United Kingdom on Saturday, January 07, 2006
I read this over the New Year holiday and quite enjoyed it.

Passed onto another BookCrosser by post.

Journal Entry 5 by Mochagirl from Sydney, New South Wales Australia on Tuesday, January 10, 2006
Yay! received today - thanks Morseman! I should be able to read it in a couple of days' time. It's in great condition, so I think I might extend what Morseman has done and set up a BookRay...

Journal Entry 6 by Mochagirl from Sydney, New South Wales Australia on Thursday, January 12, 2006
What an awesome book! This has to be one of the most well-written books I've read in a while. I think Haddon has Chris's voice down very well - it's very realistic - and quite apart from that, the story was extremely compelling! I often don't enjoy reading "children's books", but this proves that a good children's author will write something that everyone enjoys...

Thanks to Morseman for sending it to me :)

The bookray will hopefully be starting up at the beginning of next week.

RELEASE NOTES:

FINALLY got around to kickstarting the bookray... Apologies for delay, last week got a bit insane.

Here's the shipping order:

Willowfae (UK)
molekilby (UK)
conto (Portugal)
dittybopper (Louisiana, US)
loom91 (India)

Journal Entry 8 by Willowfae from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire United Kingdom on Saturday, February 11, 2006
I thought this was a great book. From what I know about Aspergers I felt that Haddon had the 'voice' of Christopher almost perfect. I really felt for him when he was confronted by people and situations he wasn't familiar with.

Received this as part of a book ray and will be posting it on this week

Journal Entry 9 by molekilby from Brithdir, Wales United Kingdom on Saturday, February 25, 2006
Received in the post this morning. I have one to finish before it (but it is meaty) so it may be a week or two before I send it on. Thanks to Mochagirl for sharing and willowfae for sending.

Journal Entry 10 by molekilby from Brithdir, Wales United Kingdom on Monday, March 06, 2006
This book really surprised me. I always thought this was a mystery book written by someone who had Aspergers, but this was more like the effects that Aspergers has on someones life. The everyday problems they face and their way of thinking.

It was a very quick read and I thank Mochagirl for sharing it.

Journal Entry 11 by wingcontowing from Lisboa (city), Lisboa (distrito) Portugal on Wednesday, March 15, 2006
Just arrived! I'm so very happy I'm finaly going to read this!

But... I'm sorry to say that it'll have to wait for a while, for I received 4 books at once (rings and rays, all of them)! Anyway I don't expect to delay it much; I'm usualy a quick reader!

Thanks a lot, molekilby, for sending it my way!!

Journal Entry 12 by wingcontowing from Lisboa (city), Lisboa (distrito) Portugal on Wednesday, April 12, 2006
Well, I guess there isn't much I can say about this book besides I loved it!
And I'm glad it didn't disapoint me as I had heard so many great things about it!
I read it in about 3 or 4 days, and just couldn't leave it behind; also I was sorry it was ending... I wanted to know much more about this boy, how did things go from that point and beyond...
I guess this is one of those books that will stay with me for a long time and that I'll remember every once in a while!
Thank you so much, Mochagirl, for the opportunity to read it, as well as Morseman and ReetPetite!

I already PMed dittybopper for an address and I'm just waiting for the answer to get it on it's way again.

Journal Entry 13 by dittybopper from Hammond, Louisiana USA on Friday, April 28, 2006
Received in the mail yesterday. I just finished a bookring so this one is next on my list.

Journal Entry 14 by dittybopper from Hammond, Louisiana USA on Sunday, April 30, 2006
This was a quick, interesting read. I have heard of Aspergers before but until now, did not understand the condition. Thanks for sharing with me Mochagirl! I really enjoyed reading this one.

I will prepare to mail it to loom91 soon.

Journal Entry 15 by dittybopper from Hammond, Louisiana USA on Tuesday, May 02, 2006
loom91 has PMd asking to be skipped (obtained a copy from elsewhere) so it looks like I am the last person in the ray.

I am sending this book on to Florida in bluedevils' Bestseller Bookbox so it can continue it's journey here in the U.S.

Journal Entry 16 by bluedevils from Baltimore, Maryland USA on Sunday, July 23, 2006
From the bestsellers bookbox.

I have way too many books already on Mt. TBR, so this one is available for others. Will keep "available" until I find a suitable time and place to release it.

I've already read the American edition of this book. Looks like I'll have to find a good way to pass this one on!

Journal Entry 17 by bluedevils from Baltimore, Maryland USA on Friday, July 28, 2006
Sent this out in the mail this morning, 7/29/06.


This book will be a small bookray as follows (note change in shipping order 7/31/06):

Grorser (Canada)
PurpleElephant (UK)
symphonicca (Canada/Peru)


Journal Entry 18 by Grorser from Fredericton, New Brunswick Canada on Friday, August 04, 2006
The book arrived yesterday. It's moving to the top of the stack. Will read and report back.

Really looking forward to this one.

Thanks everyone.

Much, much later (an embarrassing delay with no excuse to offer) we do report back. What a wonderful story, very surprising and very compelling.

We've sent a PM to PurpleElephant to get this mini ray back on track. Many apologies.

Journal Entry 19 by PurpleElephant from Glastonbury, Somerset United Kingdom on Saturday, November 04, 2006
Thanks Grorser for posting. I've been meaning to read this for a while. I've got a couple of rings above this on mount TBR but they both seem to be reasonably quick reads. Will set to it as soon as I can!

Journal Entry 20 by PurpleElephant from Glastonbury, Somerset United Kingdom on Wednesday, December 27, 2006
Sorry guys for keeping this for so long, having trouble keeping on top of mount bookring right now! Thankfully my husband has just received a copy of this book for Christmas so think I will pass on this copy and borrow his when I am less weighed down.
Have pmed symphonicca for an address.

Journal Entry 21 by symphonicca from Ottawa, Ontario Canada on Tuesday, June 19, 2007
Woo hoo!!! Look what finally made it here to Peru! And just in time, as I am actually leaving soon. Am very much looking forward to reading this and will journal more when i have started getting into it.

Journal Entry 22 by symphonicca from Ottawa, Ontario Canada on Saturday, July 07, 2007
I loved this book--- innovative, funny, touching and well-written. I thought using the voice of Christopher as the narrator was brilliant, and he was great to read (despite all of the seemingly superfluous details).

For me, there were genuine surprises in the story, and I loved the way we learned these things at the same time as Christopher--- the revelations felt very genuine and you 'went there' with Christopher and understood his reactions a bit more. This book was as much about Christopher as it was about his parents and the complicated nature of relationships, in my opinion. Christopher doesn't understand and is confused by everything, but in the end so is the reader. Excellent book--- thank you SO much for sharing!

I am not sure what I will be doing with this next--- may send it to another bookcrosser, or pass it on to a family member in the hopes that I get them bookcrossing. We shall see! :)
