I just hated it as an autistic teen because the main character was an idiot, but spent so much time reminding the audience that he was so terribly clever, so smart, so much better then all the dumb plebs. Oh yeah, smart guy, then why'd you forget that trains travel on train tracks, and going on train tracks at a busy station is usually terminally dumb?
Also, it was so damn obvious that his mum wasn't dead. "Oh she's sick and in the hospital and now she's dead but you can't come to the funeral or visit her grave and literally no one is going to mention this". JFC.

God, this. As yet another autistic teen when I read it, I probably would have actually been able to tolerate the book if Christopher weren't so utterly convinced of his intellectual superiority.

I liked the book as an autistic teen because so many of the autistic teen boys I was forced to be around were just like him. There's plenty in certain fandoms. (The emotional side I didn't mind, that seemed pretty reasonable).

Ah, well - I went to an all-girls school, and could count the number of boys I knew in general on both hands, so I suppose that aspect would have completely passed me by.
