The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time - Mark Haddon I can't remember exactly why this book made it to my to-be-read list, other than it was a mystery and it involved a teenage boy with Asperger's and savant syndrome who is doggedly determined to find out who killed his neighbor's canine. I did, however, think a little about the movie 'Rain Man' while I was reading this. The author does a good job of voicing the boy's thought processes and leads the reader through an elaborate, and sometimes convoluted but high-functioning, inner journey.
