   Emotionally, this book wrapped a tether around my heart and didn't let loose, not even after the story ended. I relate with the main character on a deep level that I often don't with most living, breathing people. It is written simply, almost overly simply, but each well-chosen word brings life to the story.         I would recommend this book to anyone who feels like an outsider or a loner. If you have Asperger's Syndrome, or OCD, I especially …

The Panama Airport does not have a book store. It also doesn't have a newspaper stand, a magazine rack, or any safety brochures. I know, because I spent my two hour layover desperately looking for anything in print to tide me over the next 6 hour plane trip home. So when in the line onto the plane a cute Australian boy pulled a battered paperback out of his backpack and handed it to me, I knew there was going to be something special about that book.      I started the …

This book draws you firsthand into the struggles of autism with a funny and soft sort of charm.

I think this book got talked up so much before I read it that it didn't live up to expectations. But it is a pretty good read.

A fabulous book, with a really interesting narrator.

When Christopher, the autistic 15-year old narrator of The Curious Incident of the Dog in Nighttime, discovers that the dog across the street has been stabbed and killed, he sets out to solve the mystery of who did it.  He ends up learning difficult secrets about his own family that turn his world upside-down and send him off on a new journey. The book is unique in that it's written in the viewpoint of a narrator who sees the world very differently from the average reader. Christopher's autism …

Interesting and fairly accurate glance through the eyes of an autistic child. Humorous but fair.

An interesting look at life as viewed by someone with autism.
review by . June 08, 2010
When I picked up this book, I had no idea what it was about. However, it quickly becomes clear that the book is a brilliant insight into the life of someone living with autism. I was unable to put it down from the beginning, and seeing as it is a fairly quick read regardless, finished it within an hour or so. Whether you know someone with autism or you lack any knowledge or understanding of the disease, this book will be a wonderfully entertaining and informative work for you.      …
