Awesome book cover Friday: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

This Friday’s selection is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.

Christopher is 15 and lives in Swindon with his father. He has Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism. He is obsessed with maths, science and Sherlock Holmes but finds it hard to understand other people. When he discovers a dead dog on a neighbour’s lawn he decides to solve the mystery and write a detective thriller about it. As in all good detective stories, however, the more he unearths, the deeper the mystery gets – for both Christopher and the rest of his family.

This version of his debut novel released in January 2010 courtesy of Gardner Press. It’s out of print now, but I like it a lot more than the current covers.
