The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (English) Later printing Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.861

Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, Christopher is autistic. Everyday interactions and admonishments have little meaning for him. Routine, order and predictability shelter him from the messy, wider world. Then, at fifteen, Christopher?s carefully constructed world falls apart when he finds his neighbor?s dog, Wellington, impaled on a garden fork, and he is initially blamed for the killing.

Christopher decides that he will track down the real killer and turns to his favorite fictional character, the impeccably logical Sherlock Holmes, for inspiration. But the investigation leads him down some unexpected paths and ultimately brings him face to face with the dissolution of his parents? marriage. As he tries to deal with the crisis within his own family, we are drawn into the workings of Christopher?s mind.

And herein lies the key to the brilliance of Mark Haddon?s choice of narrator: The most wrenching of emotional moments are chronicled by a boy who cannot fathom emotion. The effect is dazzling, making for a novel that is deeply funny, poignant, and fascinating in its portrayal of a person whose curse and blessing is a mind that perceives the world literally.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Tim
e is one of the freshest debuts in years: a comedy, a heartbreaker, a mystery story, a novel of exceptional literary merit that is great fun to read.

Curiously hilarious!

The synopsis of this book interested me and I bought it and so I can say that I got more than what I had thought.I had expected this book to be a mystery like Agatha Christie or Hardy Boys since it talked about a boy playing detective but I was in for a surprise and a welcomed one at that.
This book not only brings us abreast with the complicated yet in a way very simple working of the brain of an autistic child, but it also brings out the true colors of human beings, which by the way we are all familiar with, still affects us in an unwonted manner.

By the time I had finished reading this book I was so impressed with the observations and innocent judgements of the protagonist that, I dare say, I had started cursing my normality and my non-autism!
I could conclude with a word which will be most suited-hilarious and I shall recommend readers to go ahead and indulge in this fine specimen.

It had won many awards like WHITBREAD BOOK OF THE YEAR, GUARDIAN CHILDREN'S FICTION PRIZE, BOOK TRUST TEENAGE FICTION AWARD, etc. But the 'children' part troubled me a bit.

At first, this book gives the impression of a mystery story. But it is anything but mystery novel.

The novel doesn't follows a particular flow. The story is random and there is nothing particular to point out from the whole story, except for it is very informative. I mean to say it contains a lot of knowledge. The kid in the story is very weird, but the story is very interesting...

Dont mistake it to be a children's book. Entertains everyone, of every age group, equally...

Weird and interesting, at the same time...

Deceptive text that blends humour with serious metaphysical issues

I've gone thru this book and found it extremely interesting particularly bcoz of d peculiar thinking of the autistic boy Christopher and the philosophical questions slyly raised thru d story. A math prodigy, Christopher lives in his makebelief world and gets disappointed at every step as he tries to understand d outer world. Christopher thinks in images and this thought process is conveyed thru d numerous photographs, diagrams and charts inserted into the text (which is a postmodern trait). The inefficacy of language to convey our thoughts is highlighted thru various events in d story. Chri... ()

I've gone thru this book and found it extremely interesting particularly bcoz of d peculiar thinking of the autistic boy Christopher and the philosophical questions slyly raised thru d story.

Christopher thinks in images and this thought process is conveyed thru d numerous photographs, diagrams and charts inserted into the text (which is a postmodern trait). The inefficacy of language to convey our thoughts is highlighted thru various events in d story. Christopher Boone tries to be a detective and goes out in search of d murderer of Wellington, a dog, in Holmesian fashion. This novel is anti-detective and postmodern in attitude. It provides enjoyable content both to d young and d adult. Hence it is highly recommended to readers who want to laugh their bellies out as well as to researchers.

GREAT BOOK

The book is a great read and it covers the mentality and behavior of the central character and the speaker Christopher .

The book a good read and it is not boring at all.

The book is written in such a way that all the events of the books can be picturized and every single detail is described perfectly.

CONCLUSION:- GO FOR IT .

Stumbled on this at a book store, became my Favourite

I discovered this while randomly checking out books at a book store. I liked the book title and the playful cover art.

Randomly read some pages and it was FUN.
The story seemed to have so many tiny details which are usually ignored in most stories. I liked this.

Up until then, I had close to half a dozen books I started reading enthusiastically till about 70% and then dropped. This broke my curse; I finished it in 2-3 days.

I enjoyed it thoroughly.

If you're confused, it's not a thriller, investigation, or drama. It's a relaxed, laid-back narration that's full of satisfying details.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

A book I found interesting was The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon. It was different to many other books I've read because it was written from an Autistic persons point of view. In this book, a 15 year old, Autistic boy called Christopher. In the book, Christopher set... (View complete review)

Sweet

This book is not sugary sweet, but it's sweet as it is written from the perspective of a child. An autistic child, actually. Tag along with Christopher on his little journey and you will have a smile on your face by the time you finish reading. It's an easy read, not very stimulating or complex.... (View complete review)
