Synopsis

Mark Haddon's novel, the curious incident of the dog in the night-time, presents Christopher Boone, a young man with "special needs." Christopher suffers from Asperger's Syndrome, a condition associated with autism. Mark Haddon takes you into the mind of this remarkable young man and the Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide takes you into the novel. Among the many topics about which Bookclub-in-a-Box encourages discussion are Asperger's Syndrome, its characteristics and how they apply to Christopher; Haddon's exceptional narration guided by Christopher; how people with special needs are viewed and how they see the world through their disability; and the power of good teaching. 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. Every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel and the author.
