Publisher Description

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a murder mystery novel like no other. The detective, and narrator, is Christopher Boone. Christopher is fifteen and has Asperger's, a form of autism. He knows a very great deal about maths and very little about human beings. He loves lists, patterns and the truth. He hates the colours yellow and brown and being touched. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he finds a neighbour's dog murdered he sets out on a terrifying journey which will turn his whole world upside down.

Review

"Wondrous...brilliantly inventive...dazzling. Not simply the most original novel I've read in years - it's also one of the best" The Times "Exceptional by any standards. Both funny and deeply moving" Sunday Telegraph "Outstanding. Heartening as well as richly entertaining. A stunningly good read" Independent "Superbly realised. A funny as well as a sad book. Brilliant" Guardian "A remarkable book. An impressive achievement and a rewarding read" Time Out "A magical book. It's one of those books that makes you feel as though you have been on an emotional rollercoaster." Carrie Grant, Sunday Express "Brilliantly empathetic. Believe the hype: a brilliant, heart-warming book" Scotsman "In telling a painful story in the voice of a 15-year-old boy with Asperger's, Haddon broadens ordinary minds and helps to understand how they work, too." Daily Telegraph "Mark Haddon's portrayal of an emotionally dissociated mind is a superb achievement. He is a wise and bleakly funny writer with rare gifts of empathy" -- Ian McEwan "I have never read anything quite like Mark Haddon's funny and agonizingly honest book, or encountered a narrator more vivid and memorable. I advise you to buy two copies; you won't want to lend yours out" Arthur Golden, author of 'Memoirs of a Geisha'
