The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time Review:
The book became quite famous amongst the readers as the title is very eye-catching. The theme of social disability is discussed in the book since Christopher is autistic. The author himself said that “ If he were diagnosed, he would be diagnosed as having Asperger’s syndrome, which is a form of autism. I suppose you’d call it high-function autism in that he can function on, you know, a day-to-day basis, in a kind of rudimentary way. But he has a serious difficulty with life in that he really doesn’t empathize with other human beings. He can’t read their faces. He can’t put himself in their shoes.
