The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night by Mark Haddon

Image result for Curious Incident of the Dog in the NightI'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.
