I realis it 's all pitched as asperger 's syndrome ( which is n't a diagnosis anymore) but Christopher actually reads as someone who is a low-functioning autistic.
( I do n't like saying " low vs high " functioning, but just using that term for sake of being clear.) It 's no important to not just talk about the autistics who " pass " in society.
It did go light on the stimming, but it was there! My biggest issues with the rep were: ( 1) the inconsistencies with his kills, ( 2) that Christopher is, then, the typical white/straight/sort-of-savant-mathematical autism stereotype 😑, and ( 3) that it pretty clearly leaned towards the " oh autistic people do n't have empathy " which is WRONG.
But I love that it did n't end up with Christopher getting " better " or stopping doing anything autistic.
He is still Christopher and autistic by the end ... but it 's working on fixing his family situation. ( And like it frikkin' sucked how Christopher looked down on the other disabled kids in his class.) I also kin of found the math parts+ the wild detours to talk in intricate detail about a road sign really annoying.
It fit with Christopher I guess, but I lso like it was mayb a stereotypical way of viewing autism.ANYWAY.
But I read this all in one nigh and I LOVE reading books fast.
Shhh.)*: ·ﾟ✧*: ·ﾟ✧1st Read| July 2013Despite the title being a regular mouthful ( try saying THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME five times fast), this is a seriously good book.
That ’ s what I fee for in a book.Christopher Boone is a mathematical and scientific genius.
What I liked about his essay ha: Christopher.
I hold my hat off to thi writer, because it ’ s never difficul to rea this book like his, PLUS make the reader empathize with everyone, PLUS write an unforgettable tal, PLUS kill a dog, PLUS solve a mysteries, PLUS leave it with such an unfinished ending that I am standin here writing thi review and gnashing my teeth from the us of sheer awesomeness and feelings of unsatisfactory sadness.
Just sayin ’ .The book breaks writing rules.
The ook ( excuse me for not writing out the title again) breaks a LOT of rules.
