The boy who fell to earth - Kathy Lette

A drift away from crime thrillers to read the latest offering featuring autism/aspergers hot on the heels of Jodi Picoult. This one's more adept from a personal experience point of view as the author has a child with the condition.
For me the downside has to be the author's trademark one liners. In a book this thick they get incredibly wearing and take away from the enjoyment.
Overall the book's a reasonably ok read- what does happen to family dynamics when a child is diagnosed? Does a marriage make it? How do relationships work?
A chick lit with a bit of a twist.
Would I read another? No
