Christopher finds chatting pointless or any kind of social interaction. It is not specifically mentioned in the book, but he has autism. He is extremely sensitive to object in his environment; but insensitive to the people in his environment. He has a difficult time understanding body language and other social norms. He is amazing at writing or drawing maps.
Two main settings there are his home where he lives with his father, his school, his street, his garden and Mrs Shears' garden, the train station, the train itself, the London Underground, his mother's flat, and the room his mother rents when they move back to Swindon in the end of the book.
