Abstract [en]

This essay will look at the narrative perspective in two novels telling the story of a young boywith Autism Spectrum Disorder. In my comparison of the two stories, I will look at similarsituations in both plots and attempt to discover differences in effect in the narratives. Theauthors have different backgrounds which I believe will be of certain importance to how theyapproach telling their respective stories. My thesis is that there will be definabledissimilarities and that these will matter for the experience of the reader. The differences Iexpect to find concern how the two protagonists tackle problems they encounter as a result oftheir diagnosis and how this is told, explained and subsequently perceived.I attempt to find and explain these differences by using narrative theory, morespecifically focused on the style of explaining surroundings, the use of similes andmetaphors, the focalization of the narrator and the narrative mood
