I'm not even really sure how to write this review. This was a rather unusual read for me. I typically stay away from big general fiction sellers. My mom gave me this book in our version of a book subscription box because it has a poodle on the cover and the lead character has autism.
There were plenty of factors to this story that were relative and my mom gave it to me so I had to read it. I finished the book last year, but I have put off writing the review for all the other books I have read in between.
In the end, I figured out how I feel about The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. I enjoyed this book. It has an excellent plot, characters, and writing. I found nothing negative to say or dislike about the book. But, there was nothing special. There was no factor that made this book a favorite of mine.
It is a completely average book to me. However, it does make sense that it is getting stage treatment--which looks utterly ridiculous and horrifying--from its popularity and has sold millions of copies.
