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.

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.
