Book Review: Shtum

September 14, 2016

I was blown away by this book. We’ve all heard of autism and think we know the general jist. But reading this book really opened my eyes to the everyday challenges people with autism and their loved ones must manage through.

Parts of this book made me laugh out loud, Lester’s descriptions of shit smeared walls and the complete frustrations you feel for Jonah’s parents make this book heartfelt and endearing. Points in this book are hard to read, the sacrifice and struggle, and a bout of alcoholism doesn’t make a story of plain-sailing, however it does capture your interest and you won’t be able to put it down.
