I finished reading “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”. Let me start by saying that I really like this book. I felt very comfortable with the main character. It is clever and sweet but not sentimental or condescending. I can see how it could easily be the topic of some excellent “book club” or college level literature discussions. However, apparently I’m really stupid because I couldn’t read it without taking breaks or my brain hurt. I was afraid to skim the character’s digressions into mathematical problems or camera-like descriptions of his surroundings so I tried to understand everything. I knew almost immediately what the solution to the mystery was but I didn’t realize until halfway through the book that the book’s topic was not at all what I originally thought it was. I think that it is appropriate for older teen and up but adults will like it regardless of their connection to (or lack of a connection to) the Autistic Spectrum.
