Tour Review and Giveaway of Stim by Kevin Berry



 by Kevin Berry

Publication date: October 16th 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult


???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Robert is different. He has Asperger’s Syndrome. He experiences the world differently to 99% of the population. Follow his entertaining and highly empathetic story as he struggles to realise and accept who he really is, try to understand other people—which he cannot—and find a girlfriend. Especially find a girlfriend—he’s decided it’s his special project for the year. Accompanied on this transformative journey by his quirky flatmates, Chloe (who also has Asperger’s, amongst other things), Stef (who hasn’t, but doesn’t mind) and their oddly-named kitten, Robert endures a myriad of awkward moments in his quest to meet a nice, normal girl…and not even a major earthquake will stop him.This absorbing and humorous story is starkly told from Robert’s point of view, through the kaleidoscope of autistic experience.

Hello everyone! this book started to get my attention since I saw it in the Book Blitz last year, and when I later saw that will have a tour, I would not hesitate in give him the opportunity to read it.The story is very good, Stim is focused on what happens in one part of the life of Robert, a boy who has Asperger's Syndrome, which has decided to enter college, his life even with this syndrome has to have things and people "normal".

The route than have to spend Robert is varied to meet its target, is an exploration of finding himself and even acceptance for him, and giving life lessons in some moment.

In his tour he will not be alone, will her best friend Chloe, who have diagnosed one than another syndrome, and her roommate of both Steph, which might say that is normal. This trio will make you have a part of exploration, a fun time at times with several occurrences that will affect the lives of Robert.

Definitely my favorite was Chloe, is the most influential character in the way of Robert and makes you see that sometimes not being as he says: "normal" is good. And She have each occurrence so much fun that I lasts a good time laughing.

The book is easy to read, very funny when is necessary and very direct when dealing Asperger syndrome. In particular I had not read anything like that about these guys, maybe some books take it differently. In this case, the author handles it very well the story and makes a fine mixture, fun and even full of information.

I recommend this book too, sometimes I saw to Robert as normal as any of my friends, but some points were seen as difficult for him as for some people who will being in the way to understand it.

My favorite part of the book: Chloe, cats and your irremediable Asperger Syndrome symptom, if you want to know why you will definitely have to read the book.

You can enjoy it any free time.

My stars for this book 4.5.
