"There’s a point in the narrative where one of the characters becomes so engrossed in reading a book that she loses track of time. Readers of Genova’s latest excellent offering might very well find the same happening to them." (Kirkus)
Writing with deep empathy and insight, Genova has created an engaging story that fearlessly asks the big questions. (Booklist)
“Autism is like a Zen koan—a riddle without answers.., with effects that are myriad, mysterious, and confounding. The same could be said about love. This book upended my perceptions of both conditions, leaving me feeling with my mind and thinking with my heart. Everyone should read this book!" --Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
"Lisa Genova has essentially created her own genre, the 'Lisa Genova' novel, in which complicated topics become accessible to readers through beautifully-drawn characters and profound, human-scale stories. Love Anthony dares to ask enormous questions, the big questions that bedevil all of us. Better yet, Genova has the wisdom to know which ones can be answered, and which cannot." --Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author of And When She Was Good
"Love Anthony broke my heart in the best way! I read it spellbound and breathless. If you don't know Lisa Genova's work already, meet your new favorite writer, storyteller, enchanter." --Heidi W. Durrow, author of The Girl Who Fell from the Sky, Winner of the Bellwether Prize
“Genova's deep and empathic insight once again has blown me away -- particularly her intensely accurate portrayal of autism parenting. Her characters are complicated people, with unique, believable and, sometimes frustrating struggles. But perhaps Genova's true mastery is in the way she never fails to give us very real people to love.” --Susan Senator, author of Making Peace With Autism

Aus der Sicht des betroffenen Kindes und der ebenso betroffenen Mutter ein Stück Lebens- und Liebesgeschichte, die mal wieder zeigt, dass man auch ein "nicht ganz perfektes" Kind über alles lieben kann - aber auch, wie schwer dies manchmal sein mag, wenn vom Kind vermeintlich nicht so viel zurück kommt. Großartig und sehr, sehr lesenswert!

This book was pretty much what I expected from something by Lisa Genova (after reading only one other book by her!) and that is a good thing--the bar was set high! I really love Genova's writing style. It's very readable in that Genova has a very clear and descriptive, but not overly flowery or dramatic, voice. That being said, it is also not dumbed down or emotionless.
I'm not the most in-the-know person about autism. I probably have no more than a baseline knowledge about it. Because of that, this book was almost educational for me. I do think it painted a clearer picture of autism than some other novels I've read. I think that is because of the format of this book. We don't begin to hear Anthony's voice until his autism, and the effect on his parents, is already established. I have frequently found in books where a character has a condition such as autism that the condition becomes almost a character in itself, and I don't think that is a good thing. However, Genova makes sure that Anthony is the character, and autism is just part of him.
One thing that surprised me about this book is, from the description, I expected this to be a female friendship novel--and there is that element, but not between to the two main characters, Olivia and Beth. I spent about half the book waiting for that, but once I realized that it wasn't really going to happen, I was almost relieved. I think the fact that the arcs of the two main characters are almost completely separate is not only unique, but also extremely effective. I think that, if Genova had merged the two stories, it would have watered down both.
There is a point in this book where the reader needs to make a choice to either roll with it or be skeptical. That choice is up to the reader and their own beliefs and I can only talk to my own choice (which was to roll with it), but because of that, I found this story especially bittersweet. I felt that while Genova's choice here was risky, it did pay off. And...that's all I'm going to say about that.
Genova has quickly become one of my favorite authors and Love Anthony delivered on all levels for me. I would recommend this to just about anyone.
Suffice to say that if you're a fan of Genova's neuroscience-soaked novels, her third book provides a satisfying grown in what is becoming a one-woman genre. She compellingly and deftly places her characters into a richly drawn present-day Nantucket, one filled with the tension between its hard scrabble natives and slick, empire-looting upper class. But the focus here is placed squarely on the voice of Anthony, a haunting glimpse into the mind of an autistic boy, his connection to all of us, and the herculean inter strength required of unconditional love.
When Genova writes "Three white, round perfectly smooth rocks fall into her lap. She smiles. Anthony's rocks. And three of them," one can feel the door opening into a new way of experiencing autism from the inside. Her third book made the New York Times charts it seems for good reason, like her first two books.
