Curious incident of the dog in the night-time
My name is Cj and i am a freshman at South Meck HIgh School. Our literature circle group chose Mark Haddon's Curious Incident of the dog in the night time. In the beginning I saw blank faces on everyone in my group and they were asking our teacher questions about the text as well as the book's numerous fragment sentences! After a while we figured out the books reasoning for looking and sounding the way it did, we came to realize Christopher was autistic.
We finished the book last week and felt it was a good read and we took back our regret of picking it in the first place. We said we would recomend it to anyone who enjoys suspenseful, sad, but yet hilarious novels. If you like Sherlock Holmes, The Catcher in the rye, or Hound of the Baskervilles, then this is a book you could curl up on the couch with and read for ours to come. Today, I still see the book as one of those where you're not paying attention to what page number you are on because you become hooked quicker than you think!!!!
