Review: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the NightTime

Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com

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

I loved the book.It can appeal to so many people. An amazing book about a boy with a mental disability who explains things bluntly and honestly (he does not lie). about how difficult life is for him and those around it and how he handles these changes. Amazing, funny and real read. Read full review

It seems inappropriate for someone who doesn't know much about Asperger's syndrome to write about it. I found the character described to be a mixture of stupidity and intelligence that is incoherent ... Read full review

My friend was reading this book and he let me borrow it-- I loved it! Christopher is an extremely charming and unique character. The way it is narrated is strange, but in a good way. He's very different than what we usually classify as 'normal'. You wonder about this boy, and what he's thinking, and what planning on doing next. Definitely an unforgettable character and novel!

A truly wonderful story that fills [the reader] with intrigue and many questions. His story also offers a great point-of-view for a teen-aged boy with autism, despite some structural flaws. Not to mention, some maths equations that even I couldn't figure out! 7.5/10

I was given this book by one of my mums best friends, I have just finished reading the book today, and It was fantastic. It was the first book I ever read, and it was a great story, I read it in under 48 hours, and It was quite an achievement for me, since I had never read a book before, and because I read it so fast. This book stunned me, with a passion to want to read a million books with in my life time. Thank you Mark Haddon, for bringing me into the life of a book.

Very much enjoyed this book. All of the mathematical portions of the book and the view of an autistic person was very interesting.
