I highly enjoyed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
by Mark Haddon. The story is told from the perspective of someone with Autism. You see things through his eyes, and have to figure out what is happening from the perspective of an ordinary human being... at times he describes something in a matter of fact way that terrifies the reader.
I enjoyed it because it is a damn good story with an interesting narrator. I believe the mental health community accepted it as respectful and fairly accurate.
