The Curious Incident of the Dog in Night-Time Book Review

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

A funny and poignant story about a young boy discovering himself and dealing with insecurities. Reminiscent of that of The Rosie Project, this little book is definitely one you'll remember. A quick read that sticks with you. 

 

Christopher knows every prime number and the capitals to all the countries. One day he finds Wellington, a friends dog dead with a pitch fork in it. He decides its up to him to solve the mystery of who killed Mrs. Shear's dog. Little does he know he'll find out more than just the answer to the mystery. 

 

I was never bored reading this one. It is a very quick read but an enjoyable one. Christoper is quite funny (probably without meaning to). This book and Fish in a Tree are probably my favorites in this genre.
