NPR Weekend EditionI’m both intrigued and excited about the prospects of talking about The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time. From the very first chapter, Chapter 2 (!), the narration grabbed me. The main character, Christopher, is awesomely neurodivergent and the story he’s telling is absolutely compelling. I love that it has such stunningly low stakes.

Here’s an NPR interview with author Mark Haddon from 2003.

Martha Woodroof of member station WMRA profiles author Mark Haddon, whose novel The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time features a 15-year-old math whiz with Asperger’s Syndrome who tries to discover who killed a dog with a garden fork.

  1. The curious incident of the dog in the night-time is overall a fantastic book. The plot is well thought out, the characters are well-rounded and it is interesting to see the viewpoint of a teen with autism. There are plenty of well-placed plot twists however; there are many pages in the story completely irrelevant to the plot.
