This was a difficult book to read, considering I have a high-functioning autistic brother in law. I didn't know him as a youth, but I hear stories and I deal with how his family deals with him. He's nothing at all like Christopher (anyone who thinks that Christopher is high functioning has a very skewed definition of high functioning) in that he can deal with things better though he'll never deal with some things in a normal way... But it really hit home with me for this reason.

I can't say I enjoyed being in Christopher's brain very much, either. It was a cramped place, that brain, with a rigid way of thinking that he cannot break free from. But it was a certainly unique perspective and for that Mark Haddon should be lauded. The voice and narrative are completely unique, and you think you're going to get one story but really, you're going to get another.

A good book. Sad, but good.

I read this several years ago but it made a lasting impression on me in its depiction of an autistic boy, and the manifestations of the disease, as well as being a cracker jack tale.

"El curioso incidente del perro a medianoche es una novela que no se parece a ninguna otra. Elogiada con entusiasmo por autores consagrados como Oliver Sacks e Ian McEwan, ha merecido la aprobación masiva de los lectores en todos los países donde se ha publicado, además de galardones como el Premio Whitbread y el Premio de la Commonwealth al Mejor Primer Libro. Su protagonista, Christopher Boone, es uno de los más originales que han surgido en el panorama de la narrativa internacional en los últimos años, y está destinado a convertirse en un héroe literario universal de la talla de Oliver Twist y Holden Caulfield. A sus quince años, Christopher conoce las capitales de todos los países del mundo, puede explicar la teoría de la relatividad y recitar los números primos hasta el 7.507, pero le cuesta relacionarse con otros seres humanos. Le gustan las listas, los esquemas y la verdad, pero odia el amarillo, el marrón y el contacto físico. Si bien nunca ha ido solo más allá de la tienda de la esquina, la noche que el perro de una vecina aparece atravesado por un horcón, Christopher decide iniciar la búsqueda del culpable. Emulando a su admirado Sherlock Holmes -el modelo de detective obsesionado con el análisis de los hechos-, sus pesquisas lo llevarán a cuestionar el sentido común de los adultos que lo rodean y a desvelar algunos secretos familiares que pondrán patas arriba su ordenado y seguro mundo": (Descripción editorial).… (lisätietoja)

Intriguing book. Some beautiful passages - I especially enjoyed the detailed description of a journey through 16th century London.
