Expectations
I heard a lot about this book. Many people in the book community read it, so I thought I will give it a go. I'm very interested in Autism and have worked with children with Autism before.

Review
It was amazing to truly get inside someone's mind and experience what they're experiencing every day. It would drive me insane to thing like that about pretty much EVERYTHING. But it does gives other people great insight in the live of an Autistic kid ( I'm not trying to say every child with Autism thinks exactly like Christopher did!).

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/406622.The_Curious_Incident_of_the_Dog_in_the_Night_TimeThe story begins with a great introduction. The dog of Christopher's neighbor has been killed and Christopher is dedicated to find the person who is responsible for killing this dog.
The way he handles problems is fascinating to me. He always tries to create a (for him) logical explanation for why he's doing what he's doing without breaking any rules.

It's a very interesting read that I recommend to everyone!!

  1. So glad you liked this one! I read it a while back, and loved it, too! My son is on the autism spectrum, so it's really cool to get a peek inside how a brain like theirs works.
