The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time


  1. This story is told from Christopher's very restricted point of view, basically like a journal. His mother's letters are the only glimpse we get into someone else's thinking. Can you imagine what his father's journal would look like? What about his mother's journal? Siobhan's?

Christopher's father's journal would probably be filled with the struggles of raising his son by himself. Not to mention, his feelings about raising a son with autism. 

I think that if Christopher's mother kept a journal we'd see an awful lot of guilt, worry, and regret.

I can't imagine Siobhan's journal containing anything but stories and note of optimism.
