Book Review : The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time - Mark Haddon

Christopher, an autistic teenager, discovered their neighbor's dead dog one night and decided to make an investigation (He's a Sherlock Holmes fan) to find out who murdered it. During his investigation, he accidentally discovers the truth about his family. Siobhan, his friend, explains everything to him specially the different emotions of people. I can somehow compare Christopher to Sheldon Cooper (of The Big Bang Theory). Both of them don't understand human emotions and they both love physics and maths and I love their attitude. There are some parts of the story, I'm talking about the math formulas, that I had to read fast (didn't read at all) because it's MATH. Am i the only one? Haha! The story was unpredictable (though my second suspect was Christopher's father) and it has a great twists. All in all, the book is incredible.
