I listened to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. I also borrowed the book from a friend so I could look at the little pictures. I loved the narration though and I am really glad I listened to it because I liked the way the narrator portrayed Christopher, the main character who is a fifteen-year-old autistic boy. You really get a sense of Christopher’s character through the narration. I think this is just a brilliant book… I can’t believe how Haddon crept into the mind of an autistic teenager and was able to speak in his voice and give birth to this very compelling story. It is really a remarkable book… read or listened to.
