The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon


Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’s dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight, and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain and is exceptional at maths, but he is ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But Christopher’s detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that turns his world upside-down.

Our Bookseller says:

“This book is a great read for individuals who enjoy coming of age stories, and if you enjoyed Atypical on Netflix you’re in for a treat. What do you do when you try to solve a mystery involving a dead dog, and end up discovering more than you were looking for? Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, is raw and depicts a different side of autism that most audiences are not familiar with and does so in a way that adds perspective to not only growing up, but gaining independence in a world that believes you will always be dependent of others.” – Lupe
