The Curious Incident of the Dog At Night-time
This book is about a fictional teen protagonist who suffers from autism but happens to be very intelligent in mathematics. He also is very independent since his mother died at a very young age. The book starts of with his neighbor's dog dying and he decides to investigate to discover who killed the dog, but through the process he learns many secrets about his past.
Our Thoughts, Reviews, and Recommendations.
A visually appealing book, the book cover does a good job of symbolizing the novel as a whole.

The way the chapters were numbered by prime numbers (Christopher knows every prime number up to 7,057.)

Many visual representations in the book (diagrams, drawings).

A very simple book with a simple concept. If you are looking for more hidden symbolism in the book other than what you already know, then you will not find any.

And then I thought that I could go and live with Mother because she was my family and I knew where she lived because I could remember the address from the letters, which was 451c Chapter Road, London to go to France, and to Sunderland to visit Uncle Terry and to Manchester to visit Aunt Ruth, who had cancer, except she didn't have cancer when I was there. And I had never been anywhere apart from the shop at the end of the road on my own. And the thought of going somewhere on my own was frightening. But then I thought about going home again, or staying where I was, or hiding in the garden every night and Father finding me, and that made me feel even more frightened. And when I thought about that I felt like I was going to be sick again like I did the night before. And then I realized that there was nothing I could do which felt safe. And I made a picture of it in my head like this.
