'Mark Haddon's portrayal of an emotionally dissociated mind is a superb achievement... Wise and bleakly funny' Ian McEwan
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.

"A delightful and brilliant book. Very moving, very plausible and very funny"--Oliver Sacks
"Brilliantly empathetic. Believe the hype: a brilliant, heart-warming book"--Scotsman
"A remarkable book. An impressive achievement and a rewarding read"--Time Out
