Beefing Up My Shelves – April 04, 2011!


Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no undertanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow. This improbable story of Christopher’s quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighbourhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual, and widely heralded novels in recent years.

the curious incident of the dog in the night-time has been on my to-be-read list for sometime now. I have heard many positive reviews about the book and that ignited my interest in searching for it. Now, aquiring it means I would be putting it on my upcoming read anytime soon. I am in a hurry to read this book.

Flipping through the pages, I find the style in which the book is written unique and interesting. It is written with page numberings as part of the content of the story and has many dispersed illustrations. I am predicting that it would be a good read. Perhaps, I may be wrong.

the curious incident of the dog in the night-time was a national bestseller, it won the Whitbread Book of the Year and was also a New York Times Notable Book.

Have you heard anything about this book. Let me know by comments.

    This book is honestly incredible- I started reading it and I literally couldn’t put it down (yeah, one of those) and it’s still really vivid in my mind even though I read it quite a long time ago! It’s kind of a little bit heartbreaking, but a lot amazing 🙂


  2. Haven’t heard of this before but the title alone intrigues me.
