The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night-time


After being accused of stabbing the neighbor’s dog, Christopher Boone; the autistic- pundit hero in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time sets about solving the case by himself. In his pursuits, he draws inspiration from his favorite fictional character Sherlock Holmes. With the same ability in observation and detective intuition as Holmes, Christopher tackles the case with great logic and immense mental resolve. However, his condition bars him from discerning the foggier realms of human motivation and psychology. As the hero of the novel, the life of Christopher is portrayed with so much brilliance and intuition that the sanity of his hero’s point of view makes the world of routine individuals seem perilously unreliable and out of sorts. In the same manner that Christopher treats metaphors as an odd form of lying, Haddon; the author of the novel, taps into the neediness and fear that reside in the behavioral spasms of Christopher. Amidst the turmoil of a dysfunctional family, Boone shuns the caution of his father of investigating the dog’s murder and sets to redeem his reputation. While his thorough campaigning of the neighborhood ensues in more confusion than solutions, it is insightful in other ways as it reveals the disillusion of his parents’ marriage. A story that commences as a diverting and an offbeat piece of detective fiction takes a grave turn in the latter stages when Christopher searches for an asylum far away from his upended life. Nonetheless, there are some questions that need to be addressed. Despite his rare qualities and prowess, what are some of the challengs that Christopher faced in his endeavors? What kind of family did Christopher have and how did it affect him? How did other people treat Christopher? For an individual who evinces no emotion and meagerly relates with others, Christopher reveals an innate life that is extremely more fragile and shows that autistic people face many challenges and great stigmatization that often goes overlooked.……………
