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. And he detests the colour yellow. This improbable story of Christopher's quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighbourhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual and widely heralded novels in recent years.

A surreal and engrossing tale which presents the world as seen through the eyes of the 15-year-old autistic narrator. Fascinating description of the way autism distorts the reality that most of us take for granted. Christopher is an intensely likeable and sympathetic hero, and this is a engaging and often moving story with unexpected splashes of humour. Original and memorable.
