Book Love: The Curious Incident

I've long been a lover of books that are written from a child-like perspective. Therefore, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon definitely stuck with me after I finished reading it.

The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.

Written from the perspective of what we can assume is an autistic teenage boy, this is a story of Christopher's quest to investigate the death of a neighborhood dog. Throughout his journey, we find him pushing his limits, and we find ourselves falling in love with his simple character.

I like when it rains hard. 
It sounds like white noise everywhere, 
which is like silence, but not empty.

Though Christopher tells us, "This will not be a funny book." We can still manage to find humor in his predicaments. This book will make you think, make you laugh, and if you are a sap like me (or pregnant?) probably make you cry as well. A book with such depth of emotions is always a good read, isn't it?

I like dogs. 
You always know what a dog is thinking. 
It has four moods. Happy, sad, cross and concentrating. 
Also dogs are faithful and they do not tell lies because they cannot talk.

Be sure to add The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time to your summer reading list. It's a quick, easy read but also manages to be thought-provoking.

What's on your summer reading list?
