#65. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

His name is Christopher John Francis Boone. A kid of 15 years, 3 months and 3 days, lover of math (he knows all prime numbers up to 7,057!) and physics. He usually understand animals (he has a pet rat named Toby) and human emotions confuses him. He is special and he hates being touched as well as the color or any shade of yellow and brown. His mother died 2 years ago because of heart attack and is living with his father.

He planned on writing a book about mystery because he likes mystery (yeah, that’s what he said) and he wrote about a Mrs. Shears’ poodle named Wellington that was killed one night and he investigated. He found out that his own father killed Wellington, that his father lied about his mother, that his father lied about everything. He found out that his mother is alive, and is living at London. He got scared and frightened of his father and he decided to go to his mother on his own (which is brave).

It is kindda depressing for a kid that age and with really unstable mind (or rather special) and having a broken family. But in the end, they are able to be one though his parents live in separate house. At least, he have them both.
