Title: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Author: Mark Haddon
Release date: May 2004
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.
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!).
The 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!!
