The Electricity of Every Living Thing
- One Woman's Walk with Asperger's
- By: Katherine May
- Narrated by: Nathalie Buscombe
- Length: 8 hrs and 30 mins
Last summer, Katherine May was approaching 40, feeling overwhelmed by motherhood and lacking connection with others, lost in a world of inundation and expectation. She had always felt different, but this feeling was new. She wanted to get out, get free and find herself again - and so set about walking the rugged 450 mile South West Coast Path. However, this journey uncovered more than she had ever imagined.
Cried, laughed, gasped and loved it

A walk along a familiar path
As I began listening to Katherine May describe her journey I could feel her anger. I worried that this was going to be a "woe is me and it's every other f*****s fault" kind of read. Then as I listened on I realised just how real her story was. There was no glamour just bare faced truth . A truth so readily available from those with asd.
And an all too familiar story. This was beautifully written and read. And a great read for anyone struggling with the late diagnosis of asd. **********
