Friday Favourite - The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
I recently finished reading Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project and the narrator, Don, reminded me a lot of the narrator in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Christopher is an autistic teenage boy, who sets out to solve the mystery of his neighbour's dog's death, just like his hero, Sherlock Holmes. I absolutely loved seeing the world through Christopher's eyes, and found that I learned a lot about autism and how someone with autism processes certain things. It was a riveting read and one that has stuck with me long after I read the final pages. If you haven't yet picked this one up, please do!
P.S. The Rosie Project is also an excellent read, as Don is pretty much a grown-up Christopher. Hilarious and a really fun read!
