Reviews

"Splendid and graceful . . . A lot of novels promise to change the way a reader sees the world; The Speed of Dark actually does."--The Washington Post Book World "[A] beautiful and moving story . . . [Elizabeth] Moon is the mother of an autistic teenager and her love is apparent in the story of Lou. He makes a deep and lasting impact on the reader while showing a different way of looking at the world."--The Denver Post "Every once in a while, you come across a book that is both an important literary achievement and a completely and utterly absorbing reading experience--a book with provocative ideas and an equally compelling story. Such a book is The Speed of Dark."--Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "A remarkable journey [that] takes us into the mind of an autistic with a terrible choice: become normal or remain an alien on his own planet."--Mary Doria Russell, author of The Sparrow "A powerful portrait . . . an engaging journey into the dark edges that define the self."--The Seattle Times
