today I’ll tell you something about my first impressions of the book “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by Mark Haddon. When I saw this long title for the first time, I thought that the main character is a dog, but that’s actually not the case. The book is about a fifteen-year-old boy. Unusual are the numbers of the chapters, because they’re prime numbers and also unusual are some names, for example “Siobhan”. The language in the book is very childish.
All in all it is very interesting to read, because Christopher (the main character) can’t understand metaphors or jokes and you want to find out more and more about him.
