its a very mysterious book about a dog called wellington that got killed and a 15 year old boy with autism (I think) who wants to find what happened with already having some one in his family die

This book is very interesting and talks about a fifteen-year old boy who- over the years- has been trying to crack the case of who has killed the neighbours dog. Very DETECTIVE!

The curious incident of the dog in the night time by Mark Haddon is a murder mystery novel i have far by loved the most! Many parts were bitterly funny, whereas other chapters in the best seller novel had quite upsetting scenes balanced with pages of happiness that would spread a smile on your face. I would definetely recommend it to children aged 12+ as it does swear words in the book.

This would not usually be the type of book I would read, however through our book club I got the chance to read this and found it very insightful. I would recommend this book.

A great book by Mark Haddon. A must read for those that love a bit of crime and mystery. Would have been rated a five- star by me if it didn't have any swearing.
