The surprise. Because "this story" = "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time"
The dad's bedroom, what he found
Yes, remember, in the dad's bedroom, what he found
It wasn't my favorite but it was interesting.
Only really good author's can write from a perspective of someone or something that can't usually communicate in the usual way we are all used to. I do not know anyone who is autistic but after reading this book I feel as though I truly have a much better understanding of there life. What a great listen.
An engaging story written from the perspective of a teen with Asperger's. Well explains how he sees the world and why and that maybe he is not so different afterall.
loved residing inside the mind of Christopher . . an amazing adventure
full of fresh observations of the everyday . . thank you for a lovely book
I thought the book was so sweet and insightful. With more developments regarding the autism spectrum, it's becoming much more understood. However, this book gives you the perspective of someone on the spectrum. The story was very well written and it kept you engaged. It's a simple story but by no means is it boring. The narrator did great too. I thought the ending was so sweet it made me cry. I highly recommend this book to anyone who knows someone on the spectrum (which is most people) I'm going to recommend it to a woman I know with an autistic granddaughter. The part with Sandy at the end (don't worry, that's not a spoiler) was so touching. ♡ very well done
This book is simply incredible! A really great insight into the mind of someone with a diagnosis like Christopher. I laughed and I cried.
I only wish the ending was a little further into the future so I could see how some things turned out and how he is doing now.
All in all, fabulous.
This book manages to weave together a family drama, a murder mystery and a pov experience into one simple story. Although the author never explicitly states that the narrator had Aspberger's is fairly obvious from his behaviour, thought pattern and I think it's also referenced via the parallels with Sherlock Holmes. It's a good book, the story moves along at a good clip and the performance softens the narrator in a positive way. I can imagine reading the book myself and picturing the young lad as much more robotic and one dimensional.
