An Autistic Sun Summary


An Autistic Sun: Christopher's University Challenge by Mike Thorpe

A unique record of a remarkable autistic boy, right up to his last year as an undergraduate studying for a BSc (Hons) degree. Chris is an irrepressible, engaging, intriguing autist. Much has been learnt with him and about him. A story told with honesty, concern, candour, humour, humanity, insight, good bits, sanguine bits but always with lots of love. Circumstances, challenges, observations, work, play, learning and development regarding a rather special lad who just happens to be autistic. Not a judgemental or lecturing book full of jargon. It is at heart a thoughtful, constructive, enlightening, objective, yet optimistic and positive book.

About Mike Thorpe


Mike Thorpe is a retired engineer from the world of Oil, Gas and Petro-Chemicals. Like any walk of life, an environment fraught with its own peculiar content, challenges and deadlines. Characteristics not so entirely different to those faced by our Chris. Being close to autism is not a life sentence, merely a different way of experiencing and sharing enlightenment and development. A good life.
