    Karen Nieto is discovered in her house in Mazatlan by her Aunt Isabelle, after her sister, Karen s mother, has passed away Karen is a feral child, left to scavenge for food, with no past human interactions to shape her social behavior or even speaking capabilities And Karen is also autistic She is a high functioning autistic savant, ranging from complete imbecile the book s words, not mine in certain areas, to genius in others Her family owns a tuna cannery in Mexico that is about to go Karen Nieto is discovered in her house in Mazatlan by her Aunt Isabelle, after her sister, Karen s mother, has passed away Karen is a feral child, left to scavenge for food, with no past human interactions to shape her social behavior or even speaking capabilities And Karen is also autistic She is a high functioning autistic savant, ranging from complete imbecile the book s words, not mine in certain areas, to genius in others Her family owns a tuna cannery in Mexico that is about to go under due to an importation embargo set up by the USA Now, as she is coming to find her place in the world, finding her voice, interacting with other humans for the first time, and learning the fishing trade, Karen works to try and save her family s business and also reflect philosophically about the food industry.Reading from the perspective of someone with autism was intriguing This book, I believe, was extremely well done I felt like I really understood Karen, or as she refers to herself, Me , and as a reader I got to experience her growing up and learning from a perspective totally outside of myself At times, yes, she was a bit frustrating and unreasonable, but I think the author, Sabina Berman, does that to show how difficult it is for Karen to adjust not only as someone with high functioning autism but also as one who has experienced very little love and human interactions in her life.The prose style was beautiful There were a few passages that really struck me and stuck with me after reading them I loved the interweaving of water imagery throughout the whole book, obviously dealing with the tuna and fishing but also as a place of love and comfort and safety for Karen Overall this book was a great read I am happy to read a translate work of fiction from Spanish the author is Mexican , and also read from a unique narrator FYI, this book has quite a bit of adult language and material in it, especially surrounding Karen s college experiences observations, and sexual awakening So keep that in mind if you are younger or if you are sensitive to that material I will say that it did not seem extraneous Karen as a narrator is quite blunt, so I felt that it was done appropriately.4 5 Stars Beautiful Moving Wonderful

    Unfortunately, I found this book to be a bit disappointing Though the translation felt very smooth and without error, the perspective that of a 42 year old autistic woman felt rather inconsistent, and often bordering on the inauthentic The book felt like a fictionalization of the life of Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who has made an amazing impact on both industry and the animal human bond Here, Karen revolutionized the tuna industry rather than cattle, but the similarities from the u Unfortunately, I found this book to be a bit disappointing Though the translation felt very smooth and without error, the perspective that of a 42 year old autistic woman felt rather inconsistent, and often bordering on the inauthentic The book felt like a fictionalization of the life of Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who has made an amazing impact on both industry and the animal human bond Here, Karen revolutionized the tuna industry rather than cattle, but the similarities from the use of a harness, even to the swine slaughterhouse added up to too many coincidences for it to seem just without giving Grandin some credit.The injustice aside, I previously held high hopes because the description mentioned feral children, the ocean and autism all fascinating topics for fiction One of the pre release blurbs called this book comedic, and I definitely failed to find the humour in this book that alternated between the horror of the fishing industry and the difficulties of Karen s communication with others Despite this, the book s overall tone was not depressing, but rather matter of fact, the one of the successes of the point of view in accuracy though these insights sometimes led to the inconsistencies I simply expectedfrom the book Karen s miraculously high functioning status considering her first seven years as littlethan a feral child bordered on the extremely fantastical considering the current research into language development and the effects of neglect And the ocean s role revolvedon death and industry than beauty and hope.However, the flow and style of the writing pulled me through quickly If only the execution had supported the interesting premise

    Implausible and weird.Let me explain I thought this was going to be a novel about the journey of the aunt bringing her orphaned, wild, autistic niece into society But no Within the space of a few pages Karen went from zero to self taught reader and fairly competent communicator implausible The rest was about her education and subsequent career as a humane animal slaughterer weird It wasn t badly written or anything, and there was just enough interest to keep reading, but I was left thin Implausible and weird.Let me explain I thought this was going to be a novel about the journey of the aunt bringing her orphaned, wild, autistic niece into society But no Within the space of a few pages Karen went from zero to self taught reader and fairly competent communicator implausible The rest was about her education and subsequent career as a humane animal slaughterer weird It wasn t badly written or anything, and there was just enough interest to keep reading, but I was left thinking I didn t sign up for this So 2.5 stars

    I really enjoyed this book, particularly all the underwater fish scenes Being part fish myself, I could totally relate to the protagonists favorite pasttime of simply laying her head on a rock on the bottom of the ocean and leaving the realm of thought behind in yet another example of her rejection of Descartes Cogito, ergo sum philosophy of life I loved the lemon leaves and the grove she ultimately planted, as well as her unlikely love for Ricardo I loved the tuna paradises and her ability I really enjoyed this book, particularly all the underwater fish scenes Being part fish myself, I could totally relate to the protagonists favorite pasttime of simply laying her head on a rock on the bottom of the ocean and leaving the realm of thought behind in yet another example of her rejection of Descartes Cogito, ergo sum philosophy of life I loved the lemon leaves and the grove she ultimately planted, as well as her unlikely love for Ricardo I loved the tuna paradises and her ability to see and feel the world from the perspective of animals, namely fish and I wish someone would really figure out a way to save the bluefin tuna I don t eat sand, but my kids have certainly had their share as babies so she might be onto something there And I loved her jellyfish rescue This book was a refreshing change, a unique story, and I wish I read Spanish well enough to read it all over again in its original language In fact, I d recommend that blindly to anyone who can Thinking it would be Jo vs Me Like it better already

    I love the cover The basic idea of the book that is found in the abstract is great, but I find the book to be so poorly written I dont recommend this book.

    Taken from the point of view of an autistic woman, Karen which took me a really long time to remember her name since it is first person perspective and she always capitalizes Me , the book looks at how human beings think about what make them human Two major points of reference she draws on time and time again are Descartes and Darwin Her major problem with Descartes is his famous phrase I think therefore, I am, which she finds impossibly stupid And I agree with her She s convinced me who Taken from the point of view of an autistic woman, Karen which took me a really long time to remember her name since it is first person perspective and she always capitalizes Me , the book looks at how human beings think about what make them human Two major points of reference she draws on time and time again are Descartes and Darwin Her major problem with Descartes is his famous phrase I think therefore, I am, which she finds impossibly stupid And I agree with her She s convinced me wholeheartedly First, you exist and then you think Descartes uses this idea to define reality A reality in which anything that thinks must existthan anything that does not think Thus, animals are inferior to humans, which allows us to eat them and kill them with little concern for them The book goes to great, and subtle, lengths to convince the reader that things, humans and animals, exist first and then learn to think Karen loves Darwin He went outside of himself, unlike Descartes, and discovered a reality of how humans became humans and how all the animals became the animals they are She much prefers this reality because it connects her to the animals this case that humans and monkeys have a common ancestor However, once again, human have perverted his message and made the phrase survival of the fittest famous, irregardless of his true hypothesis Darwin has so muchto say about compassion and cooperation than strife and competition Obviously, what I find most interesting about the book was her redefinition of what a human is But there are so manyelements to this story that are rich and make this book a worthwhile read Since Karen is autistic, the reader gets a better understanding of what autism is keyword better , as well as acomplete picture of what the meat and fish industries are doing to the environment and to the animals themselves, though the book is not an account of the atrocities of the meat and fish corporations The book was also really well written and used a language that I could relate to and become emotionally connected with This book is the first that I ve read that has come even close to convincing me to become a vegetarian The only thing I wish was different was that I didn t want this book to be a novel I am definitely going to readbooks by this author

    A very peculiar book I found it really hard to get into the rhythm of the writing at first and then I wasn t sure if I was enjoying it or not.Having said that, I raced through the last half and didn t want to put it down.Having read a few books with Autistic characters, this wasn t new, however this was the first I d read from an adult female perspective.I always enjoy seeing the world from someone else s perspective, a new set of priorities and values It is always thought provoking.An enjoya A very peculiar book I found it really hard to get into the rhythm of the writing at first and then I wasn t sure if I was enjoying it or not.Having said that, I raced through the last half and didn t want to put it down.Having read a few books with Autistic characters, this wasn t new, however this was the first I d read from an adult female perspective.I always enjoy seeing the world from someone else s perspective, a new set of priorities and values It is always thought provoking.An enjoyable read
