The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time [Book]

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time [Book]

THIS DOES THE THING WHERE THEY NEVER EXACTLY SAY HE HAS AUTISM SO THEY CAN GIVE HIM LIKE, WEIRD FANTASY AUTISM. IT'S NOT AS BAD AS IT COULD HAVE BEEN BUT IT FEELS LIKE THEY WENT TOO FAR SOMETIMES ON BOTH ENDS, WHERE THEY WANTED TO MAKE A BUNCH OF "OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES" TYPE OBSERVATIONS ABOUT STUFF BUT ALSO WANTED HIM TO TALK ABOUT LIKE, PENROSE DIAGRAMS AND MALAYSIAN WORD ENTOMOLOGY. LIKE THAT SORT OF FRAGMENTED KNOWLEDGE IS A THING BUT LIKE, IT FELT LIKE THEY WENT TO FAR.  LIKE THEY MADE A POINT HE LOVED TRAINS THEN A MAJOR PART OF THE BOOK IS HIM NOT REALLY KNOWING HOW TO USE TRAINS AND THIS FEELS LIKE IT COULD BE A SPECIFIC THEME ON THAT DUALITY OR SOMETHING BUT IT REALLY JUST KINDA SEEMS UNRELATED. ALSO LIKE, IT FEELS LIKE THE BOOK CLIMAXED LIKE 75% OF THE WAY THROUGH THEN JUST WENT ON LONGER, I DON'T KNOW, I DON'T FEEL SUPER NEGATIVE ABOUT THIS BOOK AND UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE LIKE IT SO MUCH, IT WAS WRITTEN PRETTY WELL FOR WHAT IT WAS GOING FOR BUT EH. MEH!

PS. THIS IS MY LAST BOOK ON THE PORTLAND PUBLIC LIBRARY READING LIST! I READ THE REST OF THEM IN LIKE TWO MONTHS THEN TOOK HALF A YEAR TO READ THE FINAL ONE.
