The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Vintage Children's Classics

The detective, and narrator, is Christopher Boone. Christopher is fifteen and has Asperger's Syndrome. He knows a very great deal about maths and very little about human beings. He loves lists, patterns and the truth. He hates the colours yellow and brown and being touched. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he finds a neighbour's dog murdered he sets out on a terrifying journey which will turn his whole world upside down.
Portrait

Mark Haddon is an author, illustrator and screenwriter who has written fifteen books for children and won two BAFTAs. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is his bestselling novel, and it won seventeen literary prizes, including the Whitbread Award. His poetry collection, The Talking Horse and the Sad Girl and the Village Under the Sea, was published by Picador in 2005, and his novel for adults, A Spot of Bother (2005) and The Red House (2012) are published by Jonathan Cape. He lives in Oxford.

Zitat
"The clash between Christopher's view of the world and the way it looks to the rest of us makes this an extraordinarily moving, often blackly funny read. It is hard to think of anyone who would not be moved and delighted by this book, so the decision to publish it simultaneously for older children and adults is certainly well-founded" Financial Times "A wonderful first person narrative of a boy with Asperger's Syndrome; funny, sad and extraordinarily original" Guardian "I'm all for hearing different voices in fiction and I got my wish with this book. The story showed just how someone with Asperger's might view the world. Christopher finds a dead dog and sets about trying to find the dog's killer, but the book is much more than a mystery story... I loved the way Christopher tries to bring order to his world by using Maths which he finds far easier to understand than people" -- Malorie Blackman Books for Keeps "So genuine...It is chillingly heartbreaking and passionately positive in equal measure" -- Julia Eccleshare Books for Keeps "So what makes these different to any other set of classics? In a moment of inspiration Random House had the bright idea of actually asking Key stage 2 children what extra ingredients they could add to make children want to read. And does it work? Well, put it this way...my 13-year-old daughter announced that she had to read a book over the summer holiday and, without any prompting, spotted The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas...and proceeded to read it! Now, if you knew my 13-year-old daughter, you would realise that this is quite remarkable. She reads texts, blogs and tags by the thousand - but this is the first book she has read since going to high school, so all hail Vintage Classics!" National Association for the Teaching of English

Valesca Wolfgramm, Thalia-Buchhandlung Köln

Wie mutig dieser Junge ist ... Die Geschichte macht wieder einmal deutlich, wie wenig wir uns mit anderen und ihrer "Andersartigkeit" beschäftigen. Obwohl wir alle "anders" sind.
