Christopher Boone is a 15 year old with Asperger’s Syndrome and astonishing maths capabilities who discovers Mrs Shears’ pet poodle Wellington stabbed with a pitchfork seven minutes after midnight.
Christopher has never left the end of his street and lives with his father Ed, who says his mother died two years ago – but did she? And upon resolving to solve the mystery surrounding the curious incident of the dog in the night-time by writing down each clue he uncovers, can he overcome the limitations of his condition to succeed, and in doing so venture out into the world in search of other truths?
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was a charming 2003 mystery novel written by Mark Haddon.
