I just finished this book and it was amazing!
The story is told through the journal of Christopher Boone, a teenage boy who has autism. It is a very interesting read because he speaks very literally and analytically and its captivating to read how an autistic mind perceives and understands things. I read the book in about a week. It was an easy, light read that left me wanting to find out more. The storyline is that Christopher find his neighbors dog murdered with a garden fork. He begins the novel with the intention of writing a murder novel to find out the killer but he finds out much more than that and learns a lot about himself, his past, and his family. An amazing book, I recommend it to everyone.
