Meet Christopher Boone.
Christopher Boone is 15. He knows "all the countries of the world and their capital cities and every prime number up to 7,507". He lives in Swindon with his father and Toby, his pet rat. He abhors all yellow and brown things, thinks he would make a good astronaut, and has never been further than the end of the road on his own until his discovery of the "murder" of his neighbour's dog turns him into an amateur detective.
Oh, and Christopher Boone has Asperger's syndrome.
The WMCC Lunchtime Discussion group will meet to discuss The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon, on Thursday, March 26, at noon-ish, in the library. Bring your lunch!
Copies of the book and audio are in the library.
