Review: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the NightTime

Editorial Review -

Christopher John Francis Boone is a fifteenyearold autistic savant obsessed with Sherlock Holmes. He 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. This improbable story of Christopher's quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog makes for a captivating and unusual tale. Read full review

This book reads a junior high school level because the character is a 15yo kid with something like asperger's. It wasn't my normal kind of book, but it was a well written and interesting humanistic story. Read full review

"That fucking angry violent half-caste cunt at HAVERING COLLEGE she's not OKAY up there AT ALL - but I would rather be related to her than the dysfunctional fucked up family I was born into because not one single fucking worthless day goes by when I don't feel like fucking running away from home!!" Fuck that family of yours - FUCK YOU EVEN MORE!!!! You think I give a FUCK about you or ANY of your family members?!?! Maybe your fucking parents shouldn't have had you or ANY of your siblings - they should have just stayed childfree!! Because I would have if I were in the same situation as them!!
No wonder so many people choose not to have children and I don't blame them for not wanting children - even though they are selfish - because the world is too much of a nasty place to even want to live in let alone bring up any children in!!

I'm sorry, but this book was terribly boring.

To my point view, the first half of the book is way better than the last half. It's intriguing and funny. But later, it seems like there's too much going on and the author lost his unique tone of voice. The character almost became unlikeable in the end, but I can't blame anyone. It's the reality. All in all, a good book. [Feb, 2013]

Very interesting book, really kept me interested and was hard to put down. If your looking for a new book to read that is not too long and tries something different, then this may be your book.
