Der Protagonist

Die Kapitel dieses Romans sind nicht durchnummeriert, sondern nur Primzahlen, also 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, usw. stehen den Kapiteln voran. Das letzte Kapitel hat die Nummer 233. Schon diese Tatsache zeigt, dass der Ich-Erzähler, Christopher, so ungewöhnlich ist, wie die Nummerierung "special".

Sensibel, ordnungsliebend und intelligent ist Christopher. Die andere Seite zeigt einen unsicheren Charakter, dem es schwerfällt, Mitmenschen einzuschätzen und die Umwelt so zu sehen, wie die Oberfläche sie zu zeigen scheint.

Der zweite Blick, das Wesen der emotionalen Welt, das ist es, was Christopher nicht versteht. Der Prozess, in dem er lernt, besser zu verstehen, macht den Reiz des Buches aus und zeigt Christopher in vielen eigenartigen, ungewöhnlichen und schrägen Situationen, die die Sympathie des Lesers auslösen.

Written by Jessica
The story of the novel "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" by Mark Haddon, takes place in Swindon, a small town in England, where a boy, called Christopher, decides to investigate "the murder of his neighbour's dog".

The autistic protagonist Christopher is fifteen years old and a very intelligent pupil, but his many facetted character is one with various dislikes and behavioural problems. He lives alone with his father, because he is told that his mother is dead.

The story begins when Christopher finds Wellington, the dog of his neighbour, Mrs. Shears, lying in her garden with a garden fork in his corpse. Because this incident concerns him so much, he decides to find the real murderer.

His father finds out about his “detective work” and forbids it. But Christopher continues his research. During his investigation he finds letters from his mother in his father’s wardrobe. Apparently she lives in London with Mr. Shears, the person she has a love affair with.

Christopher identifies his father as the murderer of Wellington. Christopher's father wanted to take revenge on Mrs. Shears, because after being left by his wife with Mr. Shears, she also didn’t want anything to do with him.

After taking an unauthorized trip to London, Christopher finally gets to live with his mother and leaves his father. Summarizing, this novel shows the story of a young boy, getting to the truth about his own life by trying to solve a murder case.
