The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

I suffer from mild Asbergers Syndrome so I approached this book with unusual interest.  I learnt two things, first how mild my Asbergers is by contrast with the main characters and second how shockingly brilliant the book was in the way it allowed us to get inside the head of a person with this condition. 

I would recommend everyone to read this book, not only will it delight on many levels, but you will never look at a shy and retiring person the same way ever again!

    I have the book and only skimmed through it in the past. I decided that the author’s perception of the hero’s condition was not entirely correct; maybe he is a fake Asperger’s sufferer. You are a borderline case but I remember asking you about it because I recognised certain traits that were manifest in my son [and myself, I am told]. Anyway, the belief that some famous mathematicians have autistic tendencies has some truth in it.; e.g. the case of Erdos – a geek if ever there was one.

    I love books that will appeal to anyone regardless of their age/education/interests… Curious Incident is a fabulously researched and beautifully written book which tugs at the heartstrings without ever being soppy. With it’s slightly off the wall nature it ought to appeal to fans of The Life of Pi and Holes.
