The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (Vintage Contemporaries)

The main character is a 15 year old boy with autism. It sounds v intriguing.

I've read it - it's good (pretty sure it's mentioned elsewhere on mumsnet too).

Thanks, just ran across it by chance on Amazon and thought it sounded interesting.

Read it last year and loved it, also a very easy read - great for knackered mums. There is a thread on it somewhere.

aspergers is on the spectrum.

I read this and have to say I found it very boring - a one trick pony so to speak.

My goodness! Trust the mums to not only have read it, but discussed it several times. It's nice to have such literate cyberfriends.
