Does anyone know of any good fiction books that have characters in them that are on the spectrum. I love reading and when a good has a spectrum character I feel like I can relate to them and understand them more than I can normal characters. Would love to hear any and all recommendations [emoji4]
 
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon is the obvious one, but you've probably already read that.
I'm currently reading "The Idiot" by Fyodor Dostoevsky; I haven't finished the book, but I think if Prince Myshkin was a real person and alive today, he'd be found to be on the spectrum, as he's a combination of very intelligent and astute, while at the same time, incredibly naive. I could be wrong of course, as the condition wasn't known about when the book was written, but as it's fiction, it doesn't matter. See what you think anyway.​

Memoirs Of An Invisible Friend by Matthew Green is an interesting and unusual book with a boy who has autism as one of the two main characters, the other being his invisible friend Budo.
