Synopsis

Mark Haddon's novel, the curious incident of the dog in the night-time, presents Christopher Boone, a young man with "special needs."

Just as Christopher tries to solve the mysteries in his life, Bookclub-in-a-Box delves into the mystery of why this novel is so popular. Bookclub-in-a-Box encourages readers to pick and choose the many themes and topics that the author writes about. Mark Haddon has successfully pierced the veil of psychological disability and this Bookclub-in-a-Box guide shows what is hidden behind it. Christopher Boone is an extraordinary literary character.
