This is a really strange book, about a fifteen-year-old boy called Christopher. He has a special condition so he goes to a special school. Although he is fifteen, this book gives you the impression that he is only ten.
Christopher suffers from Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism. You learn a lot about this condition from reading the book. In fact it almost gives you the impression that the author suffers from it. This book is very humorous and contains strong language. Both of these are demonstrated in the first few parts of the book where you are introduced to Christopher and the mysteries of the book begin.
The mysteries are that: Wellington, a neighbor's dog was killed, and later in the book Christopher wants to find out if his mother is really dead. He starts off living with his dad. Then he decides to go on the hunt to find out who killed Wellington the dog. Since halfway through you find out who killed Wellington, I think this book is really about Christopher's life. I wouldn't call this book a comedy; I would say it is more of a life story/adventure book. This is because it is an adventure but it describes what Christopher does too much.
This book isn't like any other of the strange books that I have read. It is different in it's own special way, which is probably because of Christopher's condition. I liked this book because of that. Also it helped to make it good with the slightly humorous element, like parts when somebody swears a lot at Christopher and he doesn't understand what he or she is saying.
Overall, this book is worth reading and is fairly new. Although I have read better. It does well for its type of book.
See y'all next time.
