Human: Finding Myself In The Autism Spectrum
Some writings are so powerful that it is a shame to actually rate them. This book is worth more than 10 stars.
Human is a real-life narration by the writer about his life as a sufferer of autism. The story is about the problems faced, the ordeals faced, his support system and of course, his journey of self discovery.
Hats off to Warren for writing straight from his heart. His narration is flawless. I know, there are few technical terms but I had no problem in understanding since I am trained in Psychology. Coming back to Warren's writing style, every description can easily be comprehended. He has written about his pain, his sufferings, his inspiration, his life journey. And this is not at all easy. Writing a memoir is difficult because of the emotions of the writer involved in it. And for a person going through such a challenging experience, writing about it is even more difficult. It takes a lot of courage to come out in the open and express this way.
The writing is all about facing challenges that life throws. The story teaches that if life throws lemons at you, make lemonade with it. To be honest, I am actually short of words. I have read this story at least four times by now. Every time that I have read, I was compelled to put myself into the protagonist's shoes. Would I have emerged stronger like the hero? Would I have had such clarity of thought? Would I have coped up the way the writer did? Some questions to which I am unsure of my answers.
To sum up, this book is a definite must read for everybody. Life can throw up shocks but what really matters is facing them with a smile. An amazingly excellent or excellently amazing book, this is a one-of-a-kind straight from the heart story that gives a peek into the life of a person suffering from autism.
P.S - Thank you Booklover Catlady Publicity for giving me a story that would inspire me for life. This review is my honest opinion after reading the book.
