  2. Absolute garbage Easily the worst book I ve read in 2008, and certainly a contender for Worst Book I ve Ever Read This crap won the prestigious Whitbread Book of the Year honors, and while I have absolutely no idea what that entails, I firmly support both the eradication of this farcical award and the crucifixion of anyone on the selection committee that nominated this stinking smegma I d seen this book prominently featured at many shops mayhap Oprah was currently endorsing it as worthy fare , s [...]

  3. This book I read in a day I was in a Chapters bookstore in Toronto that s like Barnes and Noble to the Americans in the crowd and anyway I was just browsing around, trying to kill time When suddenly I saw this nice display of red books with an upturned dog on the cover Attracted as always to bright colours and odd shapes, I picked it up It s only about 250 pages or so I read the back cover and was intrigued I flipped through the pages and noticed that it had over One Million chapters I was doubl [...]

  4. poo ou pu s ooq s if you want to read an excellent book about autism in a young person, read marcelo in the real world this book is like hilary swank you can tell it is trying really hard to win all the awards but it has no heart inside and yet everyone eats it up C0ME ON no one likes gimmicks.

  5. This is the most disassociating book I ve ever read Try to read it all in one sitting it will totally fuck with your head and make you forget how to be normal.

  6. Here s what I liked about this book 1 I found Christopher, with all his many quirks, to be sweet and rather endearing.2 I thought it was a creative idea to write a book from the point of view of a boy with Asperger syndrome This is difficult to pull off, but the author does it well.3 I enjoyed Christopher s musings about life and the way in which he sees it.4 I love making lists.Here s what I didn t like about this book 1 It wasn t really a mystery and I found some of it to be a bit predictable [...]

  7. I m not sure what I was expecting but it wasn t this book I couldn t decide to give 3 or 4 stars so I m going with 3 because I liked it and 3 is my mid point I loved the lay out of the book and the little pictures I must admit the maths went right over my head I love that Christopher went on a hunt for the evil killer I wanted that killer to be forked too Overall, it s a good quick read I finished before bed last night Happy Reading Mel

  8. OverviewFirst person tale of Christopher, a fifteen year old with Asperger s Syndrome or high functioning autism, and a talent for maths, who writes a book this one sort of very post modern about his investigations of the murder of a neighbour s dog He loves Sherlock Holmes and is amazingly observant of tiny details, but his lack of insight into other people s emotional lives hampers his investigation Nevertheless, he has to overcome some of his deepest habits and fears, and he also uncovers som [...]

  9. The concept is interesting narrating the novel through the POV of an autistic boy The chapters are cleverly numbered by prime numbers, which ties in with the novel It has interesting illustrations and diagrams to look at However, I would not recommend this because it disappointed me and I couldn t, in good conscience, tell anyone to read a book I was disappointed in.I guess my disappointment lies in the fact that not only did my book club tout this as a mystery novel but also many of the literar [...]

  10. Coping With ConscienceMy 34 year old daughter is severely autistic, and has been since she was seven No one knows why and the condition has never varied in its intensity So she is stuck in time She knows this and vaguely resents it somewhat but gets on with things as best she can.Each case of autism is probably unique My daughter has no facility with numbers or memory but she does with space As far as I can tell any enclosed space appears to her as a kind of filing system which she can decipher [...]

  11. this book rocked my world, and i ve been trying for weeks to understand why here it is because the plot is flawless because the voice is flawless because it s amazingly tender without being cute because there s a christopher boone in me, and a christopher boone in everyone i love or at least try to get along with because the christopher boone in me loves to see itself written about lovingly, like it s the coolest kid, if not on the block it will never be the coolest kid on the block , at least i [...]

  12. Am I autistic Am I Christopher Boone What is it about my OCD self diagnosed, boo yah that separates me from this fifteen year old kid Fate is kind, but there is nothing disturbing than learning that you possess so many of those qualities that categorize people as special needs I mean, shit Choosing Item A over Item B because you like the color Yep Counting incessantly Yep Getting lost in London Underground Yep Quirky eating habits Yep Getting ridiculously sidetracked during storytelling Yep Yep [...]

  13. I haven t read a fictional account this heartbreakingly realistic in a long time Kapitoil was close, but The Curious Incident paints a complete picture The book is from the viewpoint of an teen boy with Asperger s syndrome named Christopher his mom has recently died and he discovers a dead dog in one of his neighbor s yards The short list he doesn t read people s emotions very well like the android Data from Star Trek next Generation, if you will , he hates the colors yellow and brown, excels a [...]

  14. Ok, I get the concept A heartwarming story told from the vantage point of an autistic boy Heartwarming, eh Sure Cerebral You bet For the Literary Snob ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY Because most of those people LOVE The Catcher in the Rye of my most hated books of all timed this book has been compared to that one I should have known.Look I m smart, I m educated I m a professional woman who adores literature and loves to read I bought this book because I was told that it was GREAT by a couple of friends I d [...]

  15. This is the story of Christopher Boone, a very likable 15 year old who suffers from Asperger Syndrome, a type of higher functioning Autism Christopher sets out to solve a mystery who killed Wellington, his neighbors dog, something he wants very much to do because he is accused of committing the crime Christopher s detective work helps him solve some other mysteries along the way, one that is much important than who killed Wellington.

  16. You can t please everyone, and I guess books can be a good example of that statement I know a lot of people who liked this book very much, but on the other hand, I also know a few people who would not hesitate to burn this book I m on the positive side I really enjoyed this short novel.I ve said this numerous times in my other reviews that I like character driven novels This book obviously focused on Christopher s development than the plot s The author succeeded, because I ve gotten attached to [...]

  17. This was a truly amazing story told from the point of view of Christopher, an autist boy Right from the beginning, you are being thrown into this mystery story which is not really a mystery story but a story about Christopher s life and struggles This book comes with surprises and I loved that I think I should ve seen them coming but I didn t Christopher kind of reminded me of Don from The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion So if you ve read and liked that book, there s a chance you will like The C [...]

  18. Re read for my Fall 2017 YAL class.One of the best YA books ever, wonderful and surprising on so many levels Very moving As a parent of a kid with autism and another kid who is spectrum y, it hits home for me in ways it might not for others As with many mysteries, it features some misdirection it appears to be about a kid with Asperger s Syndrome investigating a mystery about a dead dog in the manner of his hero and also Aspergerish Sherlock Holmes, but becomes an even richer and ever widening i [...]

  19. Update my review may not be interesting, but this one definitely is, so please read it if you read the book or plan to read the book The author created a negative stereotype of Asperger s and autism and offended the Asperger s community He s not an expert, has no experience with these disorders and did no research Mark Haddon s blog I think this is really important to know when you read the book.I m not enthusiastic about this book I kept asking myself this question does this book really do just [...]

  21. Despite the title being a regular mouthful try saying THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT TIME five times fast , this is a seriously good book It doesn t tell a story it brings YOU into the story That s what I look for in a book.Christopher Boone is a mathematical and scientific genius He also has Asperger s Syndrome a form of autism , which can turn complicated mathematics into simple games, but also turn simple things like colours, or being touched into complicated horrors What I love [...]

  22. 19 The curious Incident of the dog in the Night Time, Mark HaddonThe novel is narrated in the first person perspective by Christopher John Francis Boone, a 15 year old boy who describes himself as a mathematician with some behavioural difficulties living in Swindon, Wiltshire Although Christopher s condition is not stated, the book s blurb refers to Asperger syndrome, high functioning autism, or savant syndrome In July 2009, Haddon wrote on his blog that Curious Incident is not a book about Aspe [...]

  23. Another member on told me to read this book I meant to, but didn t until she got annoyed with me for taking so long and sent me a copy It is a remarkable book the only thing I can think that is similar to it is perhaps that short story, Flowers for Algernon My older sister is intellectually disabled, I grew up a science nerd and my daughter is a Sherlock Holmes nut While I was reading it the central character seemed a strange fusion of the three of us This book has so many resonances for me that [...]

  24. This one of the editorial acquisitions I m most proud of I ve bought rights for this novel while it was still in manuscript, before first publication and much before all the awards it received later Also, I had the pleasure of meeting Mark Haddon twice His a great author and very nice person and has good memory Unfortunately, he didn t sell well in Serbia I changed him a publisher but with no better resultsDue to bad sales he won t be translated into Serbian, most probably

  25. My older son is autistic spectrum, so this was a must read But even if you don t know any autistic people, it s a great novel The central character is engaging and totally credible Funny how it s suddenly become cool to be autistic Lisbeth Salander fromM n som hatar kvinnor is the latest and most extreme example What does that say about our society Have we been too respectful of people whose main ability is to manipulate the emotions of others, and are we now thinking better of it

  26. The first 50% percent of this novel was quite compelling, mainly because of the narrator The narrator is a teenage boy with special needs and there is something so refreshing about his narrative which isn t bogged down by feelings and repetitive internal monologues It is not mentioned what type of developmental disorder Christopher, our narrator, has but his behavior is indicative of either Autism or Asperger s Regardless of what he has, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time gives us [...]

  27. I m at a loss to explain why this novel is so special, but special it is Haddon operates on the Poe principle not including any wasted words, making every character come to life with a minimum of description and fewer lines of dialogue I fell in love with the narrator, but I am not certain why except perhaps that he s transparently innocent and confident in his constellation of quirks, preferences and behaviors that many would characterize as off putting and or anti social It is difficult for hi [...]
