This is a very unusual bbok - written from the point of view of a teenager with Asperger syndrome. Especially enjoyable if you like maths and science! And - I agree - quite thought provoking! A great read!

Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2003
"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." (amazon)

Was sent this book as part of a RABCK from ApoloniaX.

Really enjoyed this book thought it was very well written and the plot was great.
Found it particularly interesting to be inside the mind of an autistic person.

Thanks to ApoloniaX for sending me the book as well as the stickers!

Will shortly be organising a ray for the book and it will be on its journey again.

Thread can be found: http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/20/6410190/1

Leant the book to my boyfriend whilst organising the ray

Read this book on a recommendation and I could not put it down until I had read the whole thing. Enlightening, comforting, brutally honest and insightful. I found many of the thoughts expressed truly echoed my own thought processes and outlook on the world. In some parts it even made me smile and chuckle loudly. Definitely recommend this one too.

A very enjoyable read - one of the best books I've read this year. It makes you wonder about all those rules and norms that we "normal" people live by when we actually just make things more complicated.

It was very fascinating to read this book, which is written from the perspective of an autistic teenager. I enjoyed the style of writing, it was unusual, yet easy to read. I couldn't put the book down.
But I also felt a lot of sympathy for Christopher's parents. I cannot imagine how challenging it must be to raise an autistic child.

Interesting read. I read it in one sitting, intrigued by the working of an autistic brain and awed by the challenges of raising an autistic child and celebrating their differences. Thanks for sharing this book.
Awaiting address to send this book on its way.

A very unusual yet enlightening read. The writing style is great and you really get to see through the eyes of an autistic teenager. As some readers already stated, I felt sympathy for Christopher's parents and the challenges they faced.

Thanks for sharing! I'll send the book along sometime during next week. I'll let you know when I do so.

11th March - Book on its way to Germany! Enjoy!

As I am an adult with autism (Asberger's Syndrome, same as the main character), I can relate to the excellent writing style and to the understanding that the author Mark Haddon has about his subject. I can also relate well with the main character in this story, a wayward teenager.

I thank Mark Haddon for sharing with others part of what life means to someone with autism, and I hope that everyone who has participated in this bookray has enjoyed it as well.

I picked this up at the BC in DC meeting today.

I'm in an online book club and this book is on our reading list. I hope we'll decide on reading this one really soon.

On my way back from the meeting, my bus was really late (about 45 minutes! If I'd known, I'd have taken the Metro.), so I started reading the book while waiting for the bus and continued on the bus. I really like the book so far, but it is going to have to wait until I finish a couple of other books first. I can relate to Christopher's love of math and his logic, although in other ways I'm quite different from him.

We just read the book for the book club. We'll soon be starting the discussion.

I enjoyed the book a lot. I could relate to the boy's love of math, it's fascinating how he thinks. Sometimes he gets through situations not realizing how dangerous they may be. But his determination and getting there one step at a time can be a lesson to people even who don't have to deal with autism but are just afraid in certain situations.
