Info van bol.com:
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a murder mystery novel like no other. The detective, and narrator, is Christopher Boone. Christopher is fifteen and has Asperger's, a form of autism. He knows a very great deal about maths and very little about human beings. He loves lists, patterns and the truth. He hates the colours yellow and brown and being touched. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he finds a neighbour's dog murdered he sets out on a terrifying journey which will turn his whole world upside down.

Het is al weer even geleden dat ik dit boek heb gelezen, maar nog steeds staat me bij dat ik dit een heel bijzonder boek vond. Geweldig beschreven vanuit een 15jarige jongen met het syndroom van Asperger. Ontroerend ook wel. Typisch een boek wat ik niet kwijt wil, maar het mag best even gaan zwerven om daarna weer in mijn boekenkast terug te keren. Als er interesse voor start ik een ring op van dit boek.

Het boek gaat reizen naar:
-AylaMey
-Moriquen
-redfloor
-Joanazinha
-hjverveer
-christoffel
-Nika
-anicha
-EmgeeNL
-ankevd3s

en weer terug naar huis

Great book. Compelling, surprising, touching, creative and lots more.

Once I started reading I had difficulty keeping track of time myself. The book absorbed me into the mind of this young boy. His way of thinking, speaking, seeing the world and acting in it. It not once dulled me. I kept reading it in almost every place possible; hallways, on the couch in front of the television, in bed, even at the loo...yes... I just could not let go and kept reading every spare moment I had. In having finished it I admit I am even a bit sorry for that. Now I have to find me another good book to keep me occupied and hope it will not be any less of a great read as this book has been to me.

Thank you for sharing it, rroos!

A PM has been sent to Moriquen for forwarding the book.

What an amazing book this is. It has been a while since I've read a book as good as this one. I should have done work for school this afternoon, but I just couldn't pry myself away from it. This one is definatly going on my 'to buy' list.

The way in which Christopher tries to make sence of the world around him is both beautiful and painful at the same time. You may have read books about certain types of autism, without fully realising how life for an autistic person might be. This book gives you a clearer insight. And although it is not a funny story and what happens to Christopher sometimes is quite sad, you can't help but smile every now and then, because of the way Christopher sees and describes all of these events. (Just noticing that Christopher starts 'his book' with chapter 2 in stead of 1, because 2 is a prime number and he likes prime numbers, cracked me up!)

Thanks for the ring rroos and thanks again AylaMey for sending it to me. (A PM has been sent to redfloor!)

I liked the book and read it very quickly because of that. I also had difficulties letting the book go. It's very interesting to get into the head of a person with the Asparager syndrom.

Thank you rroos for sharing this wonderful book! Thanks Moriquen for sending it to me.I'll bring it to Joanazinha.

Boek via de post ontvangen. Joanazinha weet hoe ze enveloppen moet dicht plakken. Alleen met geweld kreeg ik het boek eruit.
Ik ben benieuwd hoe ik het vind. Titel is in ieder geval intrigerend.

Boek inmiddels uitgelezen. Heb er wisselvallige gedachten over. In het begin is het wel boeiend om te lezen hoe de hoofdpersoon denkt en handelt. Maar alle tussen stukjes met wiskundige toestanden is met net iets te veel. het gaat me dan erg tegen staan. Misschien dat ik meer mysterie had verwacht en minder drama dan er nu was. als fervent detectivelezer gaat daar je interesse in eerste instantie naar uit. maar toch geen spijt dat ik het heb gelezen.
Op naar Christoffel.

bijzonder boek. Af en toe wel behoolijk irritant door de wiskundige dingetjes waar ik absoluut geen kaas van heb gegeten, maar wel leuk om te lezen.

vandaag (12-01-09) gepost naar Anicha.

I finished the book last Monday. It's a great read and it gives you a great inside in the way someone with asperger thinks. Especially the part where he describes how he reacts when someone asks him to describe his mother. Any 'normal' person would say some characteristics, not him. He just describes things that happend where his mother was part of.

Since Ankevd3s asked to be skipped I sent a PM to the ring starter, Rroos, what she would like me to do with the book.
