The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

curious incidentMark Hadden does a fantastic job of writing from the perspective of a fifteen year old autistic boy. I spent several years of my life working with the mentally challenged and regularly felt inspired by some of the very perceptive remarks they made. I noticed Mark (the author) also worked with autistic children and he does a good job of capturing some of the sweet insights and unique perspectives they have on life.The story is both touching and humorous. There are moments when I felt heartbroken for the characters in the story. I found Christopher to be a very believable character and, in fact, at times forgot I was reading fiction.
