The curious incident of the dog in the night-time is a really unusual and intriguing book. It's about a boy who find his neighbor's dog killed in front of her yard. He starts an investigation in order to find out who killed it. The weird thing is the entire story is from the boy's perspective. He is the most unique character I have ever read about. He looks from the perspective of a person who is scared of the world; he doesn't trust anyone. At the same time he is a pure genius and he does not know the meaning of being evil. Those interested in psychology would like this book the most.
This book is probably one of the smartest books I've ever read. It is about a boy with autism, a mental illness, making contacts with people - a hard and horrible thing for the ill one. All the facts about physics and mathematics in it make the reader learn a lot, but do not consider the book a "nerds-only" entertainment. I read it in a flash because of the main character's interesting thoughts and the simplicity of the writing combined with the intelligence that makes it impossible to put down this book.
