Dog in the Night

Mark Haddon
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
(London, 2003)

The unconventional novel that starts as a mystery narrated by a bright but autistic teenager turns into something else — in retrospect I think I might prefer the more dramatic stage version (recently simulcast from National Theatre, London).

A runaway best seller, in both an adult and children's version, the conventional ending left me disappointed.
