I know all the countries of the world and the capital cities. And every prime number up to 7507. Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears's dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight, and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain and is exceptional at maths, but he is ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But Christopher's detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that turns his world upside-down. Simon Stephens's adaptation of Mark Haddon's bestselling, award-winning novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time offers a richly theatrical exploration of this touching and bleakly humorous tale.Hide synopsis

Funny, honest and inciteful The Curious Incident ... is one of those books that I read when working in school and reread to remind myself that life does have good bits as well as bad. How can the life of Christopher be changed by his investigation? Read the book and find out. This book does an ...
This is an unusual story, told through the eyes of a 15 year old boy, who suffers from Asperger's Syndrome. Once I had checked out the nature of this illness, I cautiously began reading.
The action begins with the discovery of the body of a neighbour's dog with a garden fork sticking out of it ...
I really enjoyed reading the story of the "murder mystery" and seeing the extent this boy went to for answers. He reached beyond his comfort level and did things he never would have done if he weren't so intrigued by what happened to the neighbor's dog. His perspective on normal daily life and life ...
I would never have read this book had someone told me it was about a boy with autism. So I won't tell you that, because actually its much more than that. It's a bonafide murder mystery.
