OK so I cried reading this

but not as much as I read this

I love The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time because:

1. Even though the title is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, it is actually a story of father-son relationship. And I love everything that has father-son/daughter relationship in it. It reminds me of the one that I had with my late father.
2. The narrator of the story is an autistic boy. It's as though the autistic boy's writing an investigation story because he had been accused of killing his neighbour's dog, so he decided to play detective and write it. So, the way the words are constructed a bit confusing yet amusing.
3. Usually fathers are the bad guys right? In this one, it was the mother who left the family.
4. Hurray to the autistic boy because they aren't supposed to be good in language, but he managed to finish writing a book [as if]. No, Mark Haddon is not autistic, he just happened to be working with them for years :-)
5. A lot of maths and physics in there, we're talking about gifted autistic boy here people, they live for maths and science, it makes my brain hurts HOHO. Luckily, the autistic boy care to explain with pictures. Oh I heard they're good at art too.
