The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon (Book Review)

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-TimeThe Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Prime numbers are what is left when you have taken all the patterns away. I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them.”

I loved this book. It’s a fast read but with great depth even so. The juxtaposition of a very emotional tale told by an autistic narrator with little grasp of emotion makes for story-telling genius. I ached for Christopher, I rooted him on, and I rejoiced as he emulated his hero, Sherlock Holmes, to solve the mystery of the dog in the night-time and bring about a personal triumph as well.

I like trees, dreaming, magic, books, paper, floating, dreaming, rhinos, rocks, stargazing, wine, dragonflies, trains, and silence to hear the world breathe.
