the curious incident of the dog in the night-time

While the rest of the family was out at the movies today I finished reading the curious incident of the dog in the night-time by Mark Haddon. It was a fascinating book. Christopher Boone, a 15-year old autistic boy, discovers his neighbor's dog dead and decides to find out who did it. It was a look into the mind of someone with Autism, showing someone who was very intelligent, but who just didn't interact with the world as we do. It's quirky, funny, deep, and just made me feel good when I finished it. And yes, the mystery is solved, though that's just half the story.
