The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time|Book Review

Hi,everyone! So I’ve just finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time which means another review πŸ™‚

As like the last book review, I’m going to be doing a bullet point list and I will also copy the blurb for you as I am crap at explaining story lines of books.

the curious incident

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is a murder mystery novel like no other. The detective, and narrator, is Christopher Boone. Christopher is fifteen and has Asperger’s Syndrome. He knows a very great deal about maths and very little about human beings. He loves lists, patterns and the truth. He hates the colours yellow and brown and being touched. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he finds a neighbour’s dog murdered he sets out on a terrifying journey which will turn his whole world upside down.

Why I liked the book:

  • The book was really inventive to be in a preceptive of a boy with Asperger and was able to make it work.
  • I really liked the main character, Christopher. He’s very funny and interesting to look at his brain.

Why I didn’t like the book:

  • I found it quite boring at parts of the book like the chapters when he goes off topic and talks about Sherlock.
  • Towards the end of the book, it seemed very unrealistic and seemed very rushed.

I would give this book a 3 out of 5 stars because I feel like it’s one of those books that I would forgot and I found it was quite boring at times and I wanted to finish the book as soon as possible.

I have a goodreads account if you ever want to be kept updated with what I read πŸ™‚ But tell me what you thought of the book if you’ve read it and we can have a little book talk in the comments below πŸ™‚

See you later,

  1. This seems a good read. I’ll be giving it a shot. Also, just added you at Goodreads and what’s Aperger’s Syndrome? Sorry if I’m being so dumb right now!

  2. Nice post!
    Personally, i really enjoyed the book, but i can see what you mean about certain bits getting a bit dull. If you get lost with the science/maths stuff (like i did at first) it can make it a tedious read =)
