Adventures from reading books captured within short reviews.
I read this book in about 2005 before my goodreads.com days. I was reminded of it by the following review on today's PageADay Book Lover's Calendar. I remember thinking that the book was pretty good, and that it may be a reasonably good effort at getting into the internal thinking of an autistic mind.
The autistic 15-year-old narrator of this novel, Christopher John Francis Boone, is so well imagined that you’ll keep hearing his voice in your head. Often misunderstood, he’s falsely accused of killing a neighbor’s dog and decides to find the killer himself. This is the journal of his investigation, and it’s absolutely unforgettable.
THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME , by Mark Haddon (2003; Vintage, 2004)
