Book Review

The curious incident of the dog in the night-time


Christopher relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He walks around with drawings of faces with different emotions in order to understand someone's facial expression. He knows every prime number up to 7,057. He hates the colors yellow and brown. He knows all the countries of the world (and their capital cities). He doesn't lie and he hates it when people touch him. He is also autistic.

This book takes you on a journey with Christopher as he writes a book, meets his mom after years of believing her dead, and solves the mystery of the neighbor's dead dog. I recommend it. It is a very fun and interesting read. Written from the perspective of a young autistic boy, it makes you think about things differently and gives you insight into the mind of an autistic person. This story is sure to draw a smile from you as you wish for Christopher's happiness.
