The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
This was really hard. I imagine it’s like asking to nominate your favourite child.
But there’s always one book that I keep referring people to when they ask for recommendations and I don’t know their tastes and it’s this one. I have yet to read another book like it, the dissection of the mind of someone with Asperger’s Syndrome is so daring, and it’s also been written objectively. Christopher doesn’t just feel like a victim in a world that doesn’t understand him, we come to feel sympathy for the people he encounters.
That will be the last post as part of this tag, I’ve gotten back a few days ago but just wanted to let my scheduled posts finish. On reflection, I have to say that it’s been quite tricky, I’ve been trying to make it as interesting as I can and explore a number of genres so I’m not just repeating the same three sentences. But I did enjoy talking about so many different books that I normally would have trouble writing a full review for (since there were only a few points that I wanted to make).
