Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

28 Sep

Christopher, a 15-yr-old autistic boy has a great mathematical ability and a very logical mind. Generally afraid of strangers, he decides to investigate (Sherlockian style) the murder of a neighbor’s dog only to discover family secrets of great magnitude.

Unique perspective told from the viewpoint of an autistic boy. There are many diagrams throughout the book explaining his theories. Will appeal greatly to reader’s with psychology background. Dear Reader style-like Doyle & Laurie King. 2003, 221 pages.
