Well done
For the author to take you into the mind of an autistic was unnerving but mind expanding too! I could not put it down once Christopher won my heart. A quick read but well worth it.

I don't like to read at all, but I really enjoyed it after being forced by english teacher. It's great for discussion in literary circles (which is what we're doing). I would recommend it to everyone!

A Great Cliff-hanger, very cleverly written and narrated...WELL DONE MARK!!!!!
I only read "The Curious Incident" once, yet it has quickly made it's way to one of my favourites for it's intense psychological and sociological notions.

Cleverly authored, excellent novel,

I suggest you all read it.

The book has a very interesting point of view. Mark Haddon is an amazing author to be able to write a book from an autistic persons point of view.

superb piece of writing
the book jacket compares the book the to Catcher in the Rye whick i think is fair
as both narrators are very likeable
to be honest christopher and Holden are right at top of list as my two most favorite
characters EVER
A MUST READ
enjoy all
Keep Smiling
