The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

By Mark Haddon

Rating: 4 stars

This is a book that I wouldn’t have picked up myself, but it was a present and I’m glad that I did get it, since I found myself really enjoying it. It presents the story of a murdered dog as told by a child with Asperger’s Syndrome and the point of view is terrifyingly good. I find myself sympathising both with Christopher himself and both his parents as they try to deal with life with their son. The difficulties of such a child are painted plainly and honestly and make me think about how I would cope in interacting with such. An excellently thought-provoking book.
