The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon ~ Fiction Book Review

1618I usually don’t read books where I know something bad is going to happen to an animal, but I made an exception for this one, and was glad I did. From the very start I LOVED this book! So smart, yet so simple, there was something very elegant about it. I liked the main character, liked the premise, it was super fun, and then – And then.

The mystery is solved about 100 pages in, and then it ceased to be the book I loved and turned into something else. Not bad, but not what I wanted. You can’t give me a taste of the good stuff, and then try and give me your leftover Halloween candy you bought from the Dollar Store three years ago. I’m not saying I won’t eat it (don’t judge), I just won’t like it as much after tasting the good stuff.

I’m being a bit harsh, but only because the beginning was SO good, and then it morphed from mystery into life, with all its melted, mushy feelings and touching growth. 4.5 stars.

    hmmm this is interesting, I always heard such good things about this book, but I didn’t realize it contained a mystery that was solved 100 pages in! That’s never a good sign…
