Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A modern classic—both poignant and funny—about a boy with autism who sets out to solve the murder of a neighbor's dog and discovers unexpected truths about himself and the world.

“Disorienting and reorienting the reader to devastating effect.... Suspenseful and harrowing.” —The New York Times Book Review

Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow.

This improbable story of Christopher's quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual, and widely heralded novels in recent years.

Great book

I read this book once, and the I was hooked, now I have read it 3 times. I suggest this book to thinkers, and people who like unique books too.

Really good

It's a limitless hard to follow at first but once you understand it's really a good book

Wonderful Book

This book does a great job of allowing you to view the world from a point of view that is, at the same time, very foreign and very sincere. The protagonist, who is Autistc, demonstrates a very logical view of the world. The book is both entertaining and touching. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who would like to better understand Autism and the enriched thought process which results from it.
