That book

I looked up To Siri With Love on Amazon and read the parts available with the ‘look inside’ thing. I thought the text I was able to read rather narcissistic.

But the thing that got me to write this post is what’s not there. The book is about an autistic son called Gus. Gus has a twin brother, whose name I forget at this time.

At the end of the book comes the acknowledgments. Maybe I’m missing something but it seems to me very remiss of the author not to mention her sons. Most other people get a mention.

To my mind the omission says it all.

  1. I enjoyed reading the previous posts. You’re right. It sounds like the author was more interested in how her life was affected than the feelings of her son. Shows a lack of kindness and empathy on her part. Really sad.
