Review: The Speed of Dark

The Speed of Dark
The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In this near future, science has figured out how to intervene with children to prevent autism. Lou and his friends, have to navigate the difficult choices when a cure becomes potentially available. It explores experimentation, work policies, social pressures, and what it means to be different.

This book hit my emotions a little too hard. Similar to when I read
Parallel Play
, I strongly identified with the experience of the character. Pretty sure I do not have an Autism Spectrum Disorder. But, Lou’s dilemma and struggle to figure out how neurotypicals operate is something I constantly do. About halfway through I had to press to finish because I realized the sooner I did and wrote this review, the sooner I could release it and go back to my denial.
