The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
This highly acclaimed, prize-winning novel should be on everyone’s reading list. Written through the eyes of a 15-year-old who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome (a form of autism), the book is, at its simplest level, a murder mystery.
When Christopher Boon discovers that a neighbour’s dog has been murdered, he starts playing detective, unearthing a lot more than he could have anticipated. Haddon gives the reader first-hand experience of what Asperger’s syndrome entails, while telling a remarkable, thought-provoking story.
