    tortoise: Both are well-written novels with a first-person autistic-spectrum narrator. The Curious Incident has a better-constructed plot (the villain in The Speed of Dark is a bit cartoonish), but The Speed of Dark is I think more interesting as a commentary on autism.… (mais)
    MyriadBooks: Undeservedly overshadowed by the concurrent publication of The Curious Incident, I found The Speed of Dark superior in every respect.
    Lucy_Skywalker: Speed of Dark is indeed superior in every respect: plot, characters, writing style, and the author has a better understanding of autistic people being the mother of one of them.

A dog is brutally killed in a Swindon front garden. A teenager with Asperger's syndrome decides to investigate and write a book about it.

From this unlikely premise, Mark Haddon manages to craft a strangely gripping, funny and touching novel which has been deservedly successful beyond the teenage and YA market for which it was originally intended. Haddon convincingly shows us the world from the point of view of his protagonist/narrator - a mathematical prodigy who finds it difficult to understand other people, their humour and even things we take for granted such as a trip on the bus or tube.

To be honest, after the first hundred pages or so, when the novel's point had been amply made, I started to grow impatient - I even confess to skimming over the final chapters. This notwithstanding, there's no denying that this is an original, offbeat book with a big heart. ( )

Als Christopher ontdekt dat de hond van zijn buurvrouw is vermoord, onderneemt hij een zoektocht naar de dader.

Daardoor komt hij er ook achter dat zijn vader hem niet altijd de waarheid verteld heeft. De werkelijkheid zit heel anders in elkaar dan hij tot dan toe heeft gedacht.

I enjoyed this story so much. It's told from a teen boy's point of view. He has autism. I've never thought about things in such a way. It's worth reading for the unique perspective, but the storyline is very interesting also. He investigates everything. He's intelligent and no nonsense. It shows how it can be hard on a person with autism and hard on their family. Of course I loved the boy and cheered him on through his journey. ( )

I usually don't read books where I know something bad is going to happen to an animal, but I made an exception for this one, and was glad I did. From the very start I LOVED this book! So smart, yet so simple, there was something very elegant about it. I liked the main character, liked the premise, it was super fun, and then - And then.

The mystery is solved about 100 pages in, and then it ceased to be the book I loved and turned into something else. Not bad, but not what I wanted. You can't give me a taste of the good stuff, and then try and give me your leftover Halloween candy you bought from the Dollar Store three years ago. I'm not saying I won't eat it (don't judge), I just won't like it as much after tasting the good stuff.

I'm being a bit harsh, but only because the beginning was SO good, and then it morphed from mystery into life, with all its melted, mushy feelings and touching growth. 4.5 stars. ( )

Read this book if you are open to know really different people, with really unique personalities. I just loved Christopher and I found very curious his way of thinking. However, I didn't like the end of the book. ( )

Mark Haddon specialises in innovative storylines in his work as an author, screenwriter and illustrator allied to his remarkable ability to demonstrate what it is to be autistic without sentimentality or exaggeration allied to a creative use of puzzles, facts and photographs in the text mark him out as a real talent drawing on a range of abilities.

As Christopher investigates Wellington's death, he makes some remarkably brave decisions and when he eventually faces his fears and moves beyond his immediate neighborhood, the magnitude of his challenge and the joy in his achievement are overwhelming. Haddon creates a fascinating main character and allows the reader to share in his world, experiencing his ups and downs and his trials and successes. In providing a vivid world in which the reader participates vicariously, Haddon fulfills the most important requirements of fiction, entertaining at the same time that he broadens the reader's perspective and allows him to gain knowledge. This fascinating book should attract legions of enthusiastic readers.
The imaginative leap of writing a novel -- the genre that began as an exercise in sentiment -- without overt emotion is a daring one, and Haddon pulls it off beautifully. Christopher's story is full of paradoxes: naive yet knowing, detached but poignant, often wryly funny despite his absolute humorlessness.
Haddon's book illuminates the way one mind works so precisely, so humanely, that it reads like both an acutely observed case study and an artful exploration of a different ''mystery'': the thoughts and feelings we share even with those very different from us.
adicionada por stephmo | editarEntertainment Weekly, Ken Tucker (Jun 20, 2003)
Mark Haddon's stark, funny and original first novel, ''The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,'' is presented as a detective story. But it eschews most of the furnishings of high-literary enterprise as well as the conventions of genre, disorienting and reorienting the reader to devastating effect.

Wellington was a poodle. Not one of the small poodles that have hair styles but a big poodle.
I like dogs. You always know what a dog is thinking. It has four moods. Happy, sad, cross and concentrating. Also, dogs are faithful and they do not tell lies because they cannot talk.
All the other children at my school are stupid. Except I'm not meant to call them stupid, even though this is what they are.
Prime numbers are what is left when you have taken all the patterns away. I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them.
I think people believe in heaven because they don’t like the idea of dying, because they want to carry on living and they don’t like the idea that other people will move into their house and put their things into the rubbish.
