March

March’s book is ‘the curious incident of the dog in the night-time’ by Mark Haddon. I picked it but Sam ordered it and got it delivered at her house. She in her turn had the joy of delivering it to me, and joy she had. Remember my little fun with the confetti? Well, she got me back. It started with a lovely wrapping of mostly tape which was followed quickly by stars, confetti stars, a lot of them. Shining and shimmering. I still find them when I open the book, it’s like my own little rain of falling stars.

So well, the book is ‘the curious incident of the dog in the night-time’ : 1001004002090091

Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow.

Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, fifteen-year-old Christopher is autistic and everyday interactions and admonishments have little meaning for him. He lives on patterns, rules, and a diagram kept in his pocket. Then one day, a neighbor’s dog, Wellington, is killed and his carefully constructive universe is threatened. Christopher sets out to solve the murder in the style of his favorite (logical) detective, Sherlock Holmes. What follows makes for a novel that is deeply funny, poignant, and fascinating in its portrayal of a person whose curse and blessing are a mind that perceives the world entirely literally.
