I recently started reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon, a book which I had heard a lot about but never really knew what it was about. This book is not like anything I have read before and although it took me a little while to get into, I am thoroughly enjoying it now.
Christopher is an intelligent young boy who is living with Asperger's Syndrome. The book begins with Christopher stepping out at night to find his neighbours dog dead. He is accused of killing the dog and so he decides to embark on a journey to find out who the real killer. Christopher decides to record all of the details in a book and during the journey, he discovers something that will change his life forever.
"Sometimes we get sad about things and we don't like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don't know why we are sad, so we say we aren't sad but we really are."
