The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

Mark Haddon, 2003

15-year-old Christopher Boone is an autistic genius with a passion for primary numbers and a paralyzing fear of anything that happens outside of his daily routine. When he discovers the dead body of his neighbor's poodle, Wellington, Christopher decides that he is going to find the killer. The mystery of the dog's death begins to unveil answers to questions in Christopher's own life. Narrated by the unusual and endearing Christopher, who alternates between analyzing mathematical equations, astronomy and contemplating the deaths of both Wellington and his mother, the novel is both fresh and inventive.
