The Curious Incident

The Curious Incident


The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Timeby Mark Haddon is a spin on a murder mystery. The main character, and narrator, is autistic Christopher Boone, who takes everything literally and doesn’t understand the nuances of adult language and thoughts. One night, Christopher comes across his neighbor’s poodle, run through with a pitchfork. A fan of Sherlock Holmes, he decides to take it upon himself to investigate the crime. It is funny, smart, and a quick, satisfying read.

    I totally love it! Although I read it when I was a teenager (maybe a 16 year old girl) I think it is very deep and allows the reader to go deeper into the funny situations and the plursignificance of the actions.

    A relly recommendable reading, no doubt about it!
