    1 thought on “The Secret Cure”

    1. I can never resist an unreliable narrator, so I was quickly drawn in by Owen, a reclusive mute who lives for most of his childhood and teenage with only his eccentric mother for company, and then, seven years after her death, decides at last to venture out into the world, “ to learn about the human heart”. Owen’s story however, is not so much about his own life as about the life of the woman he loves, a scientist named Eva. Even though he considers himself part of the world, in fact, for t [...]

    2. Whilst I found this book a good read, I was annoyed by a total lack of information about the actual 'cure'. Yes, I know there is no cure for autism/Asperger's ( I have a son with AS), but seeing as a great part of the book was devoted to science-type information, I expected at least a stab at describing Eva's hypothesis and cure. It's probably best enjoyed by readers who aren't affected by AS, or who aren't scientists like me.

    3. The front cover and even the blurb on the back didn't inspire me to read this book, but I gave it a go anyway and was pleasantly surprised. Owen was an interesting narrator and his story was as interesting as Eva's story. The other characters in the book were all interesting and engaging - from Shirley, to Grace, to Gunther's father, and all formed a piece of the puzzle.

    4. The cover and blurb would not inspire me to read this book. I did however, as it was a gift, and am very pleased to have done so. Not at all what you'd expect. Think author should fire publisher.

    5. "The Secret Cure" is an outstanding novel. It comfortably earns five stars from me, storytelling at its best.The character development is full, intense and thorough. The characters speak directly to the reader.The plot is intriguing and aided by the way the storytelling is so cleverly constructed. There are neat little surprises along the way, some you could easily miss.(Hint for reader pleasure: resist the urge to read anything on the outside or inside coversspoilers lurk there)I loved the stru [...]

    6. Sophisticated and artistic from cover to eloquently glowing reviews on the back, this book is somehow enchanting even though the author does not once mention the word stalking, even though this is what this fairytale-like book is all about! The stalked become stalkers themselves in this believably poignant tale.I really enjoyed reading this because I couldn't predict what would happen next. I was also very surprised to find it was about autism (showing I don't really read everything on the back [...]

    7. The story of Eva is a love story with a difference. It is told with insight and depth whilst unravelling the day to day challenges of a girl who falls for someone initially beyond her reach; but ultimately one who is destined to return only a portion of the love she is willing to give. Eva's job as a cleaner in a science lab bring's her into contact with technician's, professors and other professionals. But it is the life of a recluse, an ardent admirer, an unusual young man; who teaches her muc [...]

    8. The Secret Cure is a story that unfolds like a flower. The language is so beautiful. The blurb describes this book as the story of Eva the cleaning lady but it is much deeper than perceived in its exploration of love and what it is to be human. For most of the book, the story is told through Owen's eyes as he writes his memoir of his time in the world. The second part is Eva's account through a letter she writes to her daughter, Tina In this part of the story I longed to hear Owen's voice again. [...]

    9. I really enjoyed this book. It was beautifully written with beautiful writing style. I was a little bias as it was science but it also has such a wide appeal to more than just people like myself. To people with disability or kids with disability, mothers, science enthusiasts, scientists and anyone who ever graced a lab.

    10. Was a bit slow to get going, but boy it was worth continuing with. I loved the way it threaded real history around the medical acceptance of autism with narrative. The way it was written made drew you in to the characters and you really invested in them.Was happy with the ending too - too often modern fiction lets you down with a weak ending, this didn't.

    11. I would give this no stars as I couldnt get past the first 5 chapters, this was WEIRD! Weird book which originally sounded great, but owen sounded weird, the main character eva was weird!! I didnt like the style of writing it was boring and confusing. Gave up on this story.
