No two people are exactly alike, but Elijah Crowe is very, very different.
Elijah is on the autism spectrum, so the tasks of day-to-day life most people breeze through are a challenge for him. His career suffered because he never got the hang of schmoozing, and now he wastes his talents teaching classes at the mall. His social circle is limited to his ex, his therapist, and a structured inclusion group at the Rec Center. The one bright spot in his life is the memory science of Mnemography.
Although he loves nothing better than devouring the latest research and tinkering with all the specialized equipment, he never clicked with any other experts in the field until he met Daniel Schroeder. Daniel runs a memory palace—he even writes his own mnems—and that shared interest alone would make him fascinating. But Daniel and Elijah met under unusual circumstances, where the statement, “I like you, and I think you like me,” held some surprising nuances.
Now Elijah suspects he’s gay, but the few prominent people in his life are less than supportive. Some are downright hostile. Elijah might not be neurotypical, but he’s plenty smart. Surely there’s some way to get people to accept him for who he is. If only he could figure out how.
Seeing the second story from Elijah’s point of view was amazing. His thought process and understanding of the world is very different than most people. Plus, how he acts from someone else’s point of view (Daniel’s in the first book) is only a piece of the Elijah puzzle. I liked seeing how Elijah handles Daniel’s crazy. His relationship with Beth was interesting but Daniel figured it out at the end why they interacted the way they do. I loved Elijah’s growth in how he handled his co-workers. I’m eager to see how Daniel and Elijah grow together in the final book. Plus how the persistent mnem problem with Big Dan gets resolved.
