book: Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

I have a bunch of books that I *haven’t* written anything about, but last night I finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. It was wild. It’s written from the point of view of an autistic boy and once I started reading it I didn’t want to stop. Mostly because I wanted to know what he would do next — I don’t really have any experience with autistim and it was amazing to read and see how an autistic child may react to very emotional experiences around him and involving him. I also really enjoyed the asides the narrator gives about how people’s minds work, and how emotions work.
