OverviewFirst person tale of Christopher a fifteen year old with Asperger s Syndrome or high functioning autism and a talent for maths who writes a book this one sort of very post modern about his investigations of the murder of a neighbour s dog He loves Sherlock Holmes and is amazingly observant of tiny details but his lack of insight into other people s emotional lives hampers his investigation Nevertheless he has to overcome some of his deepest habits and fears and he also uncovers some unexpected secrets It is primarily a YA book but there is than enough to it to make it a worthwhile adult read as well ASD or notNeither autism nor Asperger s is mentioned by name in the book but the back cover of my 2003 first edition has this uote from neurologist Oliver Sacks that does Mark Haddon shows great insight into the autistic mind Photo HEREPrime Chapters and Structural uirksThe structure of the book chapter numbers are all primes inclusion of maths puzzles and diagrams and narrative style attention to detail excessive logic avoidance of metaphor reflect Christopher s mindset and way of viewing life It is peppered with snippets of maths and explanations of his condition how it affects him and what coping strategies he adopts The effect is plausibly stilted and occasionally breathless which is reminiscent of people I know who are on the autistic spectrum and tallies with my limited reading about the condition Honest but Unreliable NarratorChristopher s condition makes him very literal something he is aware of He can analyse a joke but still not get it Truth is paramount so he hates situations where he can t tell the truth eg for politeness and indeed the fact that everything you tell is a white lie because you can never give a fully comprehensive answer to anything He also hates metaphors even the word metaphor is a metaphor meaning carrying something from one place to another but he doesn t mind similes because they are not untrue Christopher s feelings about metaphors are highly pertinent to a very different book China Mieville s wonderful Embassytown see my review HERE which is about how minds shape language and how language shapes minds and focuses on the relationship between similes truth and liesMany novels are about uncovering what is true but Christopher s uest takes the idea to a deeper level and even though we know this narrator is almost pathologically truthful his condition means his observations sometimes miss the real truth of a situationThere is plenty of humour and it usually arises from Christopher s naive misunderstandings of situations and the conflict between his lack of embarrassment and desire to be unnoticed by unfamiliar peopleLogic and TruthChristopher loves maths because it is safe straightforward and has a definite answer unlike life He s also good at explaining some aspects ending an explanation of calculating primes with Prime numbers are what is left when you have taken all the patterns away His apparent deviations from logic are justified with ingenious logic For example having favourite and hated colours reduces choice and thus stress counteracting the effect of his inability to filter or prioritise he notices and remembers every detail of everything and can rewind it at will whereas other people s brains are filled with imaginary stuff He is a little like his hero Sherlock Holmes who is uoted saying The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance observes Similarly defining a good or bad day on the basis of how many red or yellow cars is no illogical than an office bound person s mood being dictated by the weatherAll of this means animals are a better bet than humans I like dogs You always know what a dog is thinking it has four moods Happy sad cross and concentrating Also dogs are faithful and they do not tell lies because they cannot talk People are of a mystery when having a conversation people look at him to understand what he s thinking but Christopher can t do likewise For him it s like being in a room with a one way mirror in a spy film Love is even unfathomable Loving someone is helping them when they get into trouble and looking after them and telling them the truth and Father does lots of things for me which means that he loves meComparisonsI reread this during a rather stressful journey including the passages when Christopher is making a stressful journey It helped me empathise with him to the extent that it exacerbated my own stress It s worth comparing this with Iris Murdoch s The Word Child whose main character has tacit Asperger s tendencies See my review HERE Y ko Ogawa s The Housekeeper and the Professor which is also about finding number patterns in everyday life and involves a protagonist

The concept is interesting narrating the novel through the POV of an autistic boy The chapters are cleverly numbered by prime numbers which ties in with the novel It has interesting illustrations and diagrams to look at However I would not recommend this because it disappointed me and I couldn t in good conscience tell anyone to read a book I was disappointed inI guess my disappointment lies in the fact that not only did my book club tout this as a mystery novel but also many of the literary reviews I read as well What I was expecting was an exciting roller coaster ride mystery about an autistic boy trying to find the killer of his neighbor s dog and as he slowly sleuths out the killer finds himself embroiled in dangerous life threatening situations Kind of like Tartt s The Little Friend told from an autistic POVHowever The Curious Incident is not a mystery in any way shape or form and because of this the autistic POV begins to wear thin by the second half of the novel remaining sometimes fascinating yet sometimes tedious Instead you get a novel that starts off as a promising murder mystery At the first half of the novel the mystery is solved Or rather we re unceremoniously told who is the murderer of the dog From that point the second half of the novel hugely focuses on Christopher attempting to travel to London by himself A difficult task considering Christopher is autistic hates crowds and can t stand to be touched by people I won t tell who the murderer is or why Christopher takes off to London as these are the only two real surprises of the novel I will say overall this was a huge disappointment to me I thought I was getting an exciting murder mystery and instead I got a highly readable family melodrama Perhaps if this was not pushed as a murder mystery I would have enjoyed it much An interesting read but I wouldn t recommend it Secret Sins concept is interesting narrating the novel through the POV of an autistic boy The A Wedding in Hell chapters are Lee Child CD Audiobook Bundle cleverly numbered by prime numbers which ties in with the novel It has interesting illustrations and diagrams to look at However I would not recommend this because it disappointed me and I Enchantress Mine couldn t in good Les Cin et le trésor de Rouépine conscience tell anyone to read a book I was disappointed inI guess my disappointment lies in the fact that not only did my book Into the Hands of the Soldiers: Freedom and Chaos in Egypt and the Middle East club tout this as a mystery novel but also many of the literary reviews I read as well What I was expecting was an exciting roller Who Needs a Prairie? coaster ride mystery about an autistic boy trying to find the killer of his neighbor s dog and as he slowly sleuths out the killer finds himself embroiled in dangerous life threatening situations Kind of like Tartt s The Little Friend told from an autistic POVHowever The Curious Incident is not a mystery in any way shape or form and because of this the autistic POV begins to wear thin by the second half of the novel remaining sometimes fascinating yet sometimes tedious Instead you get a novel that starts off as a promising murder mystery At the first half of the novel the mystery is solved Or rather we re unceremoniously told who is the murderer of the dog From that point the second half of the novel hugely focuses on Christopher attempting to travel to London by himself A difficult task Running on Empty Contemplative Spirituality for Overachievers considering Christopher is autistic hates Petty Pewter Gods crowds and Mama Namibia can t stand to be touched by people I won t tell who the murderer is or why Christopher takes off to London as these are the only two real surprises of the novel I will say overall this was a huge disappointment to me I thought I was getting an exciting murder mystery and instead I got a highly readable family melodrama Perhaps if this was not pushed as a murder mystery I would have enjoyed it much An interesting read but I wouldn t recommend it

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time Download À PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free DEN MYSTISKE SAG OM HUNDEN I NATTEN er en usædvanlig mordgåde Detektiv og fortæller er den 15 årige Christopher Boone der bor alene med sin far og lider af Aspergers syndrom en form for autisme Han forstår. Coping With ConscienceMy 34 year old daughter is severely autistic and has been since she was seven No one knows why and the condition has never varied in its intensity So she is stuck in time She knows this and vaguely resents it somewhat but gets on with things as best she canEach case of autism is probably uniue My daughter has no facility with numbers or memory but she does with space As far as I can tell any enclosed space appears to her as a kind of filing system which she can decipher almost instantly When she was twelve I brought her into a cavernous Virgin megastore to get a particular CD She had never been in the place before but after standing in the doorway for three or four seconds she walked immediately to the correct aisle and bin and picked out the desired CD without any hesitationI have a theory probably rubbish that autistic people perceive the world as it actually is or precisely within strictly limited categories that might be called natural somewhat in the vein of Kantian transcendentals space time numbers etc Most like my daughter and Christopher the protagonist of The Curious Incident have no facility with purely linguistic manipulation metaphor lying irony jokes complex allusion actually fiction of any sort The world is not just literal it exists in a way that ensures words are always subservient to things and without imagination that it could be any other way In my experience autistic people tend to become upset when non autistic people attempt to reverse the priority by making things subservient to words This makes the autistic person confused anxious and often angry They appear resentful that such liberties can be taken with what is so obviously reality In effect the autistic life is devoted to truth as what is actually there stripped of all emotional figurative and cultural content This makes autistic people often difficult to live with They insist and they persist about things which appear trivial to others They nag and needle until they obtain recognition In those areas that interest them they are capable of splitting the finest hairs to avoid abandoning their perceptions of the world They may on occasion conform in order to gain a point but they never really give in They are stalwart in being simply themselves Adaptation occurs elsewhere not in themIt is therefore probably impossible for non autistic people to live without tension among autistic people The latter are maddening in the solidity of their selves They are in a sense elemental for all we know formed in the intense energy of a star in some distant galaxy Fortunately the fact that most of us cannot understand their elemental force is not something that worries them very much Their emotional reactions may be intense but these attenuate rapidly leaving little damaging residue Ultimately perhaps autistic people are the conscience of the world And conscience is always troublesome not because it threatens to judge but because it reveals
