The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. I got this book because it was the summer reading book for my kids in high school. I always read the book they are assigned because I want to know what they are being exposed to. We were warned by the principal (Catholic School) that there were words in there that we didn't find acceptable for our children to use. I did not find the swearing overused (the f word is minimal). As for the subject of the book, it was a book that takes some careful reading at the beginning to learn the style of the writer, but it moves along after that

This is certainly a curious incident, finding this dog here in the night-time, wouldn't you say? .

This is certainly a curious incident, finding this dog here in the night-time, wouldn't you say? But wait, that's just the first paragraph. Next, the narrator leans down beside the dog, and finds that it's still warm. We won't bother summarizing the book here (though we highly recommend you read it yourself!), since Christopher is mostly telling us about it to explain the difference between clues and red herrings (which are like fake clues).

Christopher John Francis Boone is a fifteen year old boy who lives with his father, loves animals, and doesn't understand human emotions-including his own. With help he has learned what makes him feel :) good, like orange crush and licorice laces, and Toby his rat and starring up at the stars at night. And he knows what makes him feel :( bad, like new places, people, too much information, or anyone touching him. But he doesn't understand a lot of the faces that Siobhan from school shows him or Mr. Jeavons the school psychiatrist asks him about. Christopher is different from a lot of other teenage boys and he goes to a special kind of school with other special students. He doesn't like to be compared to them because he thinks a lot of them are stupid, but he's not allowed to use that word or call them that according to what his mother used to say or Siobhan at school, he's supposed to say they have learning difficulties or that they have special needs (but that's stupid too because everyone has learning difficulties). But it is his book so he can write what he wants in it. He's keeping this book for his investigation. He's investigating like Sherlock Holmes and he is investigating a murder. There was a murder on his street of Wellington the big poodle at Mrs. Shears house, which is right down the street from his house and Mrs. Shears is a friend of their's and so was Wellington because Christopher likes dogs. The Police and Siobhan says that killing a dog isn't the same thing as killing a human and they don't investigate or search as hard for things like that because it isn't a human, but Christopher liked Wellington and he thinks dogs are just a good as humans, in fact he likes them more.
This is a book written from the first-person point of view of a fifteen year old boy with autism and a very good understanding of facts and numbers (maths). He focuses and relies on the here and now, the real things of this world, and math problems. He doesn't like idioms, similes, metaphors, slang, or imagination. Facts are much more preferred, thank you. The book starts on the night that he finds Wellington skewered with a garden fork on Mrs. Shears front lawn, an event that he is later blamed and questioned about. He determines that he has to find out who murdered Wellington and the life that he thought he knew and was comfortable with swiftly begins to unravel. For a boy who doesn't understand human emotions a lot of events puzzle him and he has a hard time coping and understanding why some people do and choose the things that they do, it's not logical, even if it is human.
Mark Haddon does a remarkable job at capturing the mindset and ideas of an individual with autism and expressing it in a way readers can relate to. This book illustrates how some mindsets can be different. Where some individuals focus on feelings, others enjoy literature, and still others are focused on numbers and facts, things that are measurable and recordable, like Christopher. Sometimes different mindsets make certain things easy for individuals to understand while other topics and ideas are alien and something that makes ones' head spin. This is a tale of murder, mystery, a hidden past, and an unsure future of a boy who likes to deal in absolutes and certainties. But all it takes is one variable in the equation to change for the outcome be to a different world entirely.
Overall this book is really well-written and an interesting read. Highly recommended for those working with individuals with autism or other neo-neurological learning disabilities. Also a good read for those looking for different perspectives or books that make you question the writer/reporters point of view.

There are many curious things about Mark Haddon’s book, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, “ besides the title. Foremost, perhaps, is the author. Starting in 1987, Haddon, a Harvard graduate, wrote and illustrated mostly children’s books. During those days he was also a screenwriter, winning numerous awards for both disciplines. In 2003 his first adult novel, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.” hit the market to great acclaim winning awards in both the adult and children’s categories. His thought processes are mind-boggling.

I’d certainly not consider this a children’s book, although it was published in both categories, a fact curious in itself. It is called a mystery novel, although that, too, is strange, because the only mystery is not a scary mind teaser. It’s about a dog that was killed and who-dunnit. Christopher Boone, a 15-tear old boy who describes himself as “a mathematician with some behavioral difficulties”, narrates it. Indeed he is and does, being a genius with Asperger syndrome. That fact is never stated in the book, giving the reader a chance to hear Christopher’s description of his life and thoughts and to cogitate on the actions that take place and how they happen.

If one were to go through a thesaurus and select all the adjectives and adverbs that glorify, reviewers in their reviews would have used every one. I’m going to try to abstain from that because there are no modifiers left. But this book has earned them all. Haddon’s story is well told, innovative in its approach, and totally absorbing. I challenge anyone to read it and not be moved beyond words.

Christopher Boone finds a dog with a pitchfork through its innards. In his swirling mind of fears, likes and dislikes, trust and distrust, he knows he likes dogs but not people who kill them. It makes sense to him that he needs to find the murderer. Unfortunately most people disagree with him, including his father, but those displeasures mean nothing to him because he has a mission he intends to see through to the end. Unfortunately, the end is the beginning of new mind worms for him to deal with.

Haddon is clever in his writing, mixing simple thoughts with complex scientific and mathematical theory. Christopher can wend his way through this maze with ease, even if he becomes somewhat disoriented as he does so. Probably most readers will get lost in the technical details but the author surely knew that. It adds great authenticity to Christopher’s struggle for answers to the many questions and problems that plague him.

All I’ll tell you is that you must not fail to read this book. I don’t have the words to tell you how much you will enjoy the author’s talent and his story.

I have been intrigued by the title since I heard about its run on Broadway. Friends who saw it gave glowing reviews for the sets and lighting. So, of course, I had to read the book. Now I have to see the play to offer a glowing review; the book is very good, but not not excellent!

The autistic narrator is amazing. You can witness and sympathize with the pain and aggravation. Autism can break up a family. The love and despair demonstrated by the father and mother of the boy is very effective. The boy wants to be loved by cannot be touched!

It is a good read, it is never boring or tedious, and occasionally humorous. When Christopher finds the dead dog in the neighbor's yard, killed with a garden fork, he picks up the dog and holds it tenderly. This is the clue for the perfect ending.

Now that I am analyzing the recently read book, I have just changed my review to 5*s. Books are read and enjoyed; however, they should also be shared. Ideas and comments of fellow readers can enlighten, 'Wait a minute, I never thought of that! The author brought it all together and I just realized it."

The joys of reading!!!
