The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

About The Book:
Written by Mark Haddon Published Year 2003 Awarded Whitbread Prize and James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction
'The dog was lying on the grass in the middle of the lawn in front of Mrs Shears' house. It looked as if it was running on its side, the way dogs run when they think they are chasing a cat in a dream. But the dog was not running or asleep. The dog was dead. There was a garden fork sticking out of the dog.' The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a murder mystery novel like no other. The detective, and narrator, is Christopher Boone. Christopher is fifteen and has Asperger's, a form of autism. He knows a very great deal about maths and very little about human beings. He loves lists, patterns and the truth. He hates the colours yellow and brown and being touched. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he finds a neighbour's dog murdered he sets out on a terrifying journey which will turn his whole world upside down.

I love reading this kind of books, I call them smart books one of the reason is because they confuse me but I still read them because their different from the usual selection of fictions. Reading this book is like seeing the world in the eyes of another person which is Christopher. It was so sort of sad the way that father is trying to win back Christopher's trust.
