    An average book, and no more than that... and the title is just an attention seeking, 'hope you will think this is the Mark Haddon book that everybody was talking about a few years back' association con if ever I saw one. I bet that it would sell half the volume if it had a different title...

    I got the copy of this book from a second hand bookstore in Bali, during my vacation time last year, assuming by the title, that this book was the "parody" version of Haddon's (The curious incident of the dog in the night time), but it's not... It's a story of a sloppy guy who's trying to win back his family, the story wise quite unique, the writing style with those british/scotish/irish accent, sometimes make me ponder... overall the book is funny, but i can't give more stars... as i don't get anything from it... just for fun only... :)

    Hilarious. Hard to read at times because it's written entirely in Dublin posh slang... but it was a riot. Typical moment: the protagonist and his wife make those famous "lists" of people they're allowed to sleep with if the opportunity comes up. His wife lists people like Brad Pitt. The protagonist lists more than thirty real-life people, including several of his wife's friends... and their moms!

    A nice hilarious (and somewhat touching) story about an autistic boy trying to find out who killed his dog whilst struggling with his mental problem and broken family.

    It's hilarious and it's scary. Not that it's horror story, no - but the dive into the autistic mind, however lightly presented, is uncomfortable. In a rewarding way though.

    It was interesting and unique because the main character was autistic

    Es un libro extremadamente novedoso. No solo nos sumerge en un contexto desconocido para la sociedad, sino que nos hace sentir identificados y en ocasiones culpables ante el trato que solemos darle a las personas con enfermedades como el Asperger o similares. Contiene elementos psicológicos muy interesantes para el lector, presentados de la mejor forma: demostrándolos mediante el comportamiento del protagonista. Además, encontramos muchos datos de interés de todo tipo, que resultan curiosos tanto por lo que son como por la forma en la que son explicados por Christopher.La trama de la historia es, además de diferente, intrigante. El desarrollo tiene giros argumentales que dejan al lector con la boca abierta y el final, aunque adecuado y satisfactorio, resulta decepcionante, dejando al lector un leve “esperaba más de ello.”Como punto en contra, decir que toda la intriga y los interrogantes de la historia se resuelven más o menos en la mitad, y el resto del libro se hace un poco pesado y aburrido.RESEÑA COMPLETA: https://eltiempoyelsilencio.wordpress...

    I seem to be giving everything 3-5 stars but I'm only picking what I like - won't waste reviews on something crap.Again biased here as not only is Paul Howard Irish, he was a couple of years behind me in school, and it's brilliant to see him doing so well (I'm not at all jealous!) One of the only authors I can't read on the DART (train) as I laugh so much I snort (the pastiche of the rich Dublin southsiders is brilliant, I grew up with so many of these - but amn't one, believe me!) Love the gang lord son and the relationship developing between him and his dad (the son is miles ahead of Ross in the maturity stakes even though he's only 9) Again part of a series that hopefully is continuing, dying for the next one

    I was mostly drawn into reading this book due to the protagonist having autism, considering my sister has autism and it just catches my attention, draws my interest. Although, I really did find this book boring, but somewhat different. For instance, how Christopher knows all the prime numbers all the way up to 7,057 is pretty intelligent. Then again, it seems as if all autistic individuals prefect in some ways, and seem behind in other subjects as such. It was an ok book, wasn't bad, wasn't good. Read if you're into the whole mystery type, and perhaps if autism catches your interest as well. If you decide to read this book, I hope you enjoy it more than I did!

    It has strong characters with strong personality. It has a lot of symbolism inside the story, which if you read the story again after finding them, will be more fun

    haha.. i am going to take the time to add the entire series because it is just so hiliarously wrong... however i warn you that the book is written almost entirely in Dublin posh-slang and i had to get my irishman to translate so if you choose to read - please call me for any translation needs. (copied- sorry for being lame)

    It is amazing to sit the mind of an autistic boy. He is pure and funny with the way he observes "adults". This makes me think how irrational we are sometimes in front of kids and even ourselves. Smiling while reading.

    A wonderful story told by a teen age autistic boy. His perspective on life is unique. He is gifted mathematically and uses math to both calm himself when upset and to figure out what and how to handle the events life throws him. This has been made into a Broadway play and won a Tony this year!

    This book was all the rage when I read it. It's a quick read. It really didn't light my fire, but I understand why people did like it.

    I just couldn't get into this. The slang that it's written in just muddled everything in my head. I felt like I was reading ever sentence two or three times just to get the gist of it.
