The Short Bus--#3 finished
A man basically is reflecting back on his treatment in elementary & middle & high schools because he was not a "normal" learner. He is dyslexic and not sure what else but he grew to hate most of his teachers and the idea of the short bus. He has graduated from Brown Univ, Ivy League and has become a speaker around the country to learning disabled kids LD. He came up with the idea of driving a short bus around the country to talk to some kids or people about their experiences. I just had the feeling this was kind of just all done for the book. The author is struggling with himself as far as leading a "normal" life or leading an eccentric life and not really sure at the end where he will end up. I don't know the whole book seemed forced to just get a book done. The whole trip to the hippie commune The Burning Man just didn't fit either. This book had some good parts but overall not really for me.
