The narrator of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is 15-year-old Christopher who has a form of autism called Asperger's Syndrome.

His obsessive and unusual take on life creates lots of hilarious situations but also brings incredible poignancy to the story. Christopher finds it hard to relate to people, particularly their emotions and feelings, so when he finds a dead dog and decides to solve the mystery of its death, his quest leads him into a difficult and unfamiliar territory that threatens to upset his carefully ordered existence.

This is an intriguing and insightful novel that will appeal to readers from 13+.

Great awareness raising -

This book helps you to see the world through the eyes of one person with Aspergers syndrome. I needed to skim read parts due to attention to detail which is exactly how you would feel listening to the character speak. Plenty of examples of literal thinking and compulsive behaviours. Great book, really good read.
