The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a unique book and much like Flowers for Algernon (which you should read in close proximity to this book) it takes a little bit for the writing to truly make sense. The book is written from the perspective of Christopher, a young boy who is very intelligent but cannot understand human emotions. Christopher is autistic and Haddon gives us the opportunity to see the world through this lens.
This novel will hold your attention, break your heart, and leave you totally disoriented before finally helping you see the world in a new way. When I first began reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, I struggled to comprehend and understand Christopher but before long I was thinking like and relating to him. Christopher investigates the suspicious death of his neighbor’s dog, Wellington, and through this investigation he discovers more than he could have ever expected about his own family.
Picking a tea for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was really difficult because I didn’t want to pick anything yellow or brown. It seems like you shouldn’t pick a tea that the main character wouldn’t drink. I decided on green tea, although green tea is borderline yellow in color it is technically green and I think Christopher would agree. Green tea also helps boost memory, which might help the reader relate to Christopher too.
