The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is the novel of the British writer Mark Haddon, released in 2003. The protagonist of the novel is a 15-year-old boy named Christopher John Francis Boone, who suffers from autism. After the publication of the novel began to spread the view that the novel gives an accurate picture of the consciousness of a person suffering from autism, and some features of the boy’s behavior indicate that he has Asperger syndrome. But in 2009, Mark Haddon denied these speculations, saying in his blog that the book does not describe this syndrome, and he himself is not an expert on this issue.
