The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

I have thoughourly enjoyed the book "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" Christopher has frequently portrayed such innocence throughout the book and the way this book was written allows the reader to see the simple desires of this boy as well as the complex and brilliant way his mind thinks. Its obvious throughout the book Chritopher struggles to interact with other people. This is becasue he cannot seperate his mind from other peoples minds. He thinks the world thinks the way his mind does. Throughout the book Christopher yearns to prove his ability in school and wants to go to University to study maths. Lots of people believed that he couldn't do it because of his Aspergers but people don't understand that his condition doesn't hinder his mental capacity at all. He also wants independence in the book and runs away from his father because he didn't feel safe. Despite never going to London before and his life and being scared beyond belief he gathered his courage and went to go find his mother of which he believed to be dead. This book has been fun and endearing throughout but has now become very exciting. I can't wait to finish it.

  1. I am so glad to you that you are enjoying the novel. I also think it is very cool that you can relate. I'm looking forward to the direction in which you take your project. I know this is subject matter that is near-and-dear to you heart :o) That always makes a good book even better.
