“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.
