The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime

by Mark Haddon

This is the book that started it all.

Synopsis: An autistic kid writes a murder mystery novel about the death of his neighbor's dog. He writes it the way an autistic kid thinks. And its pretty awesome.

Abby highly recommends it. But everyone's already read it. Comments friends?

I got about 3 chapters in before I had to set it aside. I've got way too many books in my To Read pile (not a real pile, I don't keep my books in piles), but I enjoyed what I read so far.

This was a great book. I really enjoyed it for its content. It really opened up my perspective when it came to autism, and Jeff. Jeff isn't autistic, but his thoughts are very similar to the main character's.
