Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  PH

Christopher John Francis Boone is autistic, he's also the narrator of this funny yet touching story. He is a genius in math and science but cannot function very well socially. He hates being touched and can't stand the colors yellow or brown, but he wants to find out who murdered his neighbor's dog. He goes about trying to figure it out as if he was a detective in a murder mystery but uncovers some things about his life that are surprising.

Although it has some harsh language, this book is brilliant. The author captures the thought process of an austitic child believably. The story would be pretty simple if told traditionally but this spin of the narrator being a speacial needs child makes the book more interesting and clever. A must read.
