Christopher John Francis Boone is a smart individual, with just a bit of behavioral problems. But that doesn't stop him from learning the names and capitals of all the countries in the world, or taking an A mathematics class, or investigating a recent neighborhood dog's death. But as he buries himself deeper and deeper into what seems like a simple mystery, much larger discoveries are made. But, will he like what he finds? And how can a mystery on a killed dog change his life?
In this attention-grabbing novel, Mark Haddon creates a simple yet complex story. Told through a first-person point of view bursting with voice, this book must be read.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime is not just a novel nor a must to read, but perhaps something else all together. This book is a reminder of what we are capable of, and who we can be.
