The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a breathtakingly original novel with a very intelligent teenage narrator who has Asperger’s Syndrome. He starts by trying to solve the mystery of how a neighbour’s dog died but after a while finds that there are greater mysteries in his own life. It is a fascinating insight into the mind of this fifteen year old and his strategies for coping with everyday life, sometimes funny but also sad and certainly thought provoking. I have just reread it and found it every bit as good as I remembered it.
