The Curious Incident of The Dog at Night Time

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow.

Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, for fifteen-year-old Christopher everyday interactions and admonishments have little meaning. He lives on patterns, rules, and a diagram kept in his pocket. Then one day, a neighbor's dog, Wellington, is killed and his carefully constructive universe is threatened. Christopher sets out to solve the murder in the style of his favorite (logical) detective, Sherlock Holmes. What follows makes for a novel that is deeply funny, poignant, and fascinating in its portrayal of a person whose curse and blessing are a mind that perceives the world entirely literally. - taken from goodreads



This was an amazing book! It was slow at the beginning but then it picked up and I was hooked! The only thing I had a problem with was the level of cursing. Though the father is described as gentle, he curses a LOT and at one point even hit his son, And others curse for no reason and this implies that it is ok. Other than that though, this was a totally appropriate book. I really loved the whole story and how mysterious it was. I also loved reading from Christopher's mind. The book was written in a really different way (you'll see if you read this book) and I really loved that!
