the curious incident of the dog in the night-time

This amazing New York Times notable book by Mark Haddon is the heartwarming story of Christopher Boone and how his quest to find out who killed Wellington turns into more than just "doing detecting" to bring who killed the poodle, to justice. Soon Christopher's safe world of maths and computer games is turned upside down when he finds out almost everything his father has told him was a lie. I originally picked this book up at the volunteer party and after i finished Breaking Dawn, i picked it up and haven't put it down until 20 minutes ago when i finished. I loved and it doesn't take long for the reader to love Christopher because he tells it like it is with pure honesty, even when he knows he would be in trouble. The silly rituals and suspicions make the story and i reccomend it to everyone who loves unsuspected suprises, mystery and a happy ending. :)
