A great quick read narrated by a boy with Aspergers trying to solve a murder. ( )

I enjoyed this book a lot more than what I thought I would. it was suggested by a friend as a book they thought was memorable and I can see why. It has a very honest flavour of writing, very direct and too the point, while still keeping one engaged and wondering where the story is going.
A dog is brutally killed in a Swindon front garden. A teenager with Asperger's syndrome decides to investigate and write a book about it.
From this unlikely premise, Mark Haddon manages to craft a strangely gripping, funny and touching novel which has been deservedly successful beyond the teenage and YA market for which it was originally intended. Haddon convincingly shows us the world from the point of view of his protagonist/narrator - a mathematical prodigy who finds it difficult to understand other people, their humour and even things we take for granted such as a trip on the bus or tube.
To be honest, after the first hundred pages or so, when the novel's point had been amply made, I started to grow impatient - I even confess to skimming over the final chapters. This notwithstanding, there's no denying that this is an original, offbeat book with a big heart.
I enjoyed the story and the author does a great job of understanding how a very bright boy with social issues and phobias would think. I haven't come across too many stories like this nor a book written by a sort of "Beautiful Mind" type. In fact in some ways Christopher Boone has similarity to John Nash though not quite as brilliant. Regardless it's an interesting story with a few laughs mixed with a family dynamic that's touching.

Mark Haddon specialises in innovative storylines in his work as an author, screenwriter and illustrator allied to his remarkable ability to demonstrate what it is to be autistic without sentimentality or exaggeration allied to a creative use of puzzles, facts and photographs in the text mark him out as a real talent drawing on a range of abilities.
As Christopher investigates Wellington's death, he makes some remarkably brave decisions and when he eventually faces his fears and moves beyond his immediate neighborhood, the magnitude of his challenge and the joy in his achievement are overwhelming. Haddon creates a fascinating main character and allows the reader to share in his world, experiencing his ups and downs and his trials and successes. In providing a vivid world in which the reader participates vicariously, Haddon fulfills the most important requirements of fiction, entertaining at the same time that he broadens the reader's perspective and allows him to gain knowledge. This fascinating book should attract legions of enthusiastic readers.
The imaginative leap of writing a novel -- the genre that began as an exercise in sentiment -- without overt emotion is a daring one, and Haddon pulls it off beautifully. Christopher's story is full of paradoxes: naive yet knowing, detached but poignant, often wryly funny despite his absolute humorlessness.
Haddon's book illuminates the way one mind works so precisely, so humanely, that it reads like both an acutely observed case study and an artful exploration of a different ''mystery'': the thoughts and feelings we share even with those very different from us.
Mark Haddon's stark, funny and original first novel, ''The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,'' is presented as a detective story. But it eschews most of the furnishings of high-literary enterprise as well as the conventions of genre, disorienting and reorienting the reader to devastating effect.
