Mark Haddon's

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

Inhale this refreshingly original tale critics declare as "Flawlessly imagined" and "Moving".

It's not often when one can come across both a captivating and brilliant read. Of course, every once in a while, we grudgingly take up seemingly clever novels which attempt to weave both wit and insight in a limited number of pages while still trying to keep the reader hooked. Unfortunately, by the time we're at least five chapters in, we realize only too late our mistake- and their fault.

However, upon gracing one's eyes upon the intricate bounty of Haddon's "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time", we realize that it just might be a little too early to give up on them yet.

The story follows fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone, an autistic individual who finds a slaughtered dog on his neighbor's yard during one of his twilight walks. Being deftly able in the field of logic and mathematics, Boone's driven to scrutinize the world around for a gentle solution to a simple yearning to right an injustice.

But is he prepared to behold the consequences of discovery?
