Title The Curious Incident of the Dog in Night Time
Author: Mark Haddon

Genre: Mystery, Adventure

One night, Christopher, an autistic person, finds the dog Wellington dead. Wellington is Christopher's neighbour’s, Ms Shears, dog. He had a pitchfork hammered in his chest. So, Christopher decides to go search the murderer.
Christopher lives with his father because his mother is dead. But during his search for the murderer, he finds letters written by her mother dated from after her death. Now, Christopher has two mystery to solve:
-Who killed Wellington?
-Is his mother alive and if she is, why did she go away?

Personal opinion:
I chose this book because the title was intriguing and attractive.
What I enjoyed about this book is that it is an autistic person and not a detective that tries to solve the mystery of the dead dog.
I would recommend this book for patient readers who like mystery and adventure.

Level: This book is quite easy to read.

Rating:  4,5/5
