#47: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
Picked this up the other day. And by that, I mean I saw it on the side of the street, put it in my purse, took it home, and read it. I’m glad that I did, too, because the book was really great. The story, or mystery rather, is told from the perspective of a 15 year old boy with autism which lets the reader take a peek into a mind that may be different from their own. I almost always prefer simply writing as opposed long, drawn out narratives (although I certainly read those, too) and this book was exactly what I was looking for. The story is complicated, but the words are not. The Curious Incident is a quick read and I promise it is worth your time.
