The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

One of the numerous books purchased and read this vacation was "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" by Mark Haddon. A charming yet pretty consuming tale of an autistic 15-year-old that one day finds his neighbour's dog killed in the garden, and the detective story that follows. The book is very well written and provides a glimpse into the world of a person with a mental disability most of us don't understand. By listening in on the thoughts and conversations of our protagonist it becomes apparent how hard it must be to live with such a handicap; yet at the same time the book is written with a wink in the eye and has a good story, and plentiful of surprises and smiles along the way.

If you haven't read this book yet (thought it was a childrens' book, maybe?) pick it up now :-) - I'll happily lend it out to friends of mine, of course!
