The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

Why don’t you include this book in your plans for the summer?

“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by Mark Haddon is a murder mystery novel. The detective, and narrator, is Christopher Boone. Christopher is fifteen years old and has Asperger’s, a form of autism. He knows a very great deal about maths and very little about human beings. The chapters are counted with prime numbers, jokes are only comprehended in their literal meanings, and social interactions are a struggle. In his pursuit to discover the truth about the death of her neighbour’s dog, Christopher allows the reader a fascinating look at life from his perspective.

Very easy to read, very difficult to forget.
