Sinopsis de THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT

Mark Haddons bitterly funny debut novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, is a murder mystery of sorts--one told by an autistic version of Adrian Mole. Fifteen-year-old Christopher John Francis Boone is mathematically gifted and socially hopeless, raised in a working-class home by parents who can barely cope with their childs quirks. He takes everything that he sees (or is told) at face value, and is unable to sort out the strange behavior of his elders and peers. Late one night, Christopher comes across his neighbors poodle, Wellington, impaled on a garden fork. Wellingtons owner finds him cradling her dead dog in his arms, and has him arrested. After spending a night in jail, Christopher resolves--against the objection of his father and neighbors--to discover just who has murdered Wellington. He is encouraged by Siobhan, a social worker at his school, to write a book about his investigations, and the result--quirkily illustrated, with each chapter given its own prime number--is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

1 reseñas sobre el libro THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT

Es el primer libro que leo en inglés y si hay alguien por aquí que no sabe cómo empezar a hacerlo que sepa que este es un libro perfecto para ello. Un lenguaje bastante sencillo y con una trama muy conmovedora. Christopher, un niño con tipo de trastorno autista, decide averiguar quién ha matado al perro de su vecina. A partir de ahí suceden situaciones que hacen que Christopher tenga que hacerse valer por sí mismo, en un mundo que, para nada, está preparado para entenderlo. Empatizas y entiendes su mundo, sus dificultades, inquietudes y su manera de comprender lo que le rodea.
