Both Chris and his father have trouble expressing themselves verbally. While Chris's Aspergers prevents him from properly understanding and expressing feelings, Ed Boone lacks the confidence to express himself verbally as well. His temper and personal angst get in the way. Both Chris and his father have few friends hence feeling isolated from each other and the world. A big difference is that while Christopher’s father can see his relationship with Christopher deteriorating, Chris is largely ambivalent to this.
