alt The Curious Incident of the dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon takes place near the town of Swindon, England. A young 15 year-old boy named Christopher Boone narrates this story which starts off when he finds the dead body of his neighbor's poodle, Wellington. He makes a decision to investigate who murdered this dog. His neighbor comes outside in horror and calls the police. After Christopher hits a policeman after a misunderstanding, he is no longer allowed to investigate the murder. He is diagnosed with a mild case of autism. He disregards the fact that he can not investigate and he keeps trying to find the murderer. Throughout the story, Christopher goes through ups and downs but those can't be told without revealing the ending.
I couldn't put this book down, it's a mystery throughout the whole story. The ending was completely unpredictable. It's a unique plot, confusing in the beginning but then clear once you start to understand  the situation that Christopher is in.
