Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time (Kindle Edition)
I'd heard great things about this book over the years, but somehow had never got around to picking it up. Honestly, in the end I only bought a copy after a recommendation from a girl I wanted to get to know better. It didn't go to plan with the girl, but I in no way regret reading this. From cover to cover I was enthralled. Haddon chose an incredibly difficult perspective to write from, but absolutely nailed it. I have long been a big fan of Douglas Adams, most notably for the digressive style of plot evolution, and this is something Haddon does to perfection in this book. Despite the constant digressions and distractions, its easy to form a bond with the characters, and the pace never feels too slow.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
