“Disorienting and reorienting the reader to devastating effect. . . . As suspenseful and harrowing as anything in Conan Doyle.”—Jay McInerney, The New York Times Book Review

Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone is an autistic math genius who greatly admires Sherlock Holmes. When his neighbor’s poodle is found skewered on a pitchfork and Christopher is accused of causing the dog’s death, he decides to use Holmesian deductive logic to solve the crime. Haddon’s depiction of the boy’s mind and the stratagems he uses to survive in what to him is a truly strange world make this first novel a truly clever and compelling read.

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME, by Mark Haddon (Vintage, 2004)

This is one of my all-time favorite books. The narrator/protagonist is one of the great characters of literature. Read it!
