og farverne brun og gul Men han elsker matematik logik lister og sandhedenEn dag finder han genboens hund myrdet og sætter sig for at finde gerningsm OverviewFirst person tale of Christopher a fifteen year old with Asperger s Syndrome or high functioning autism and a talent for maths who writes a book this one sort of very post modern about his investigations of the murder of a neighbour s dog He loves Sherlock Holmes and is amazingly observant of tiny details but his lack of insight into other people s emotional lives hampers his investigation Nevertheless he has to overcome some of his deepest habits and fears and he also uncovers some unexpected secrets It is primarily a YA book but there is than enough to it to make it a worthwhile adult read as well ASD or notNeither autism nor Asperger s is mentioned by name in the book but the back cover of my 2003 first edition has this uote from neurologist Oliver Sacks that does Mark Haddon shows great insight into the autistic mind Photo HEREPrime Chapters and Structural uirksThe structure of the book chapter numbers are all primes inclusion of maths puzzles and diagrams and narrative style attention to detail excessive logic avoidance of metaphor reflect Christopher s mindset and way of viewing life It is peppered with snippets of maths and explanations of his condition how it affects him and what coping strategies he adopts The effect is plausibly stilted and occasionally breathless which is reminiscent of people I know who are on the autistic spectrum and tallies with my limited reading about the condition Honest but Unreliable NarratorChristopher s condition makes him very literal something he is aware of He can analyse a joke but still not get it Truth is paramount so he hates situations where he can t tell the truth eg for politeness and indeed the fact that everything you tell is a white lie because you can never give a fully comprehensive answer to anything He also hates metaphors even the word metaphor is a metaphor meaning carrying something from one place to another but he doesn t mind similes because they are not untrue Christopher s feelings about metaphors are highly pertinent to a very different book China Mieville s wonderful Embassytown see my review HERE which is about how minds shape language and how language shapes minds and focuses on the relationship between similes truth and liesMany novels are about uncovering what is true but Christopher s uest takes the idea to a deeper level and even though we know this narrator is almost pathologically truthful his condition means his observations sometimes miss the real truth of a situationThere is plenty of humour and it usually arises from Christopher s naive misunderstandings of situations and the conflict between his lack of embarrassment and desire to be unnoticed by unfamiliar peopleLogic and TruthChristopher loves maths because it is safe straightforward and has a definite answer unlike life He s also good at explaining some aspects ending an explanation of calculating primes with Prime numbers are what is left when you have taken all the patterns away His apparent deviations from logic are justified with ingenious logic For example having favourite and hated colours reduces choice and thus stress counteracting the effect of his inability to filter or prioritise he notices and remembers every detail of everything and can rewind it at will whereas other people s brains are filled with imaginary stuff He is a little like his hero Sherlock Holmes who is uoted saying The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance observes Similarly defining a good or bad day on the basis of how many red or yellow cars is no illogical than an office bound person s mood being dictated by the weatherAll of this means animals are a better bet than humans 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 People are of a mystery when having a conversation people look at him to understand what he s thinking but Christopher can t do likewise For him it s like being in a room with a one way mirror in a spy film Love is even unfathomable Loving someone is helping them when they get into trouble and looking after them and telling them the truth and Father does lots of things for me which means that he loves meComparisonsI reread this during a rather stressful journey including the passages when Christopher is making a stressful journey It helped me empathise with him to the extent that it exacerbated my own stress It s worth comparing this with Iris Murdoch s The Word Child whose main character has tacit Asperger s tendencies See my review HERE
