The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time (book)

Someone recommended this book to me and eventually I found it in a bookstore and before I knew it it was at my night-table.

While it is a pretty cute story and probably an excellent youth novel (??) I can not shake of the feeling that the writer uses manipulative technics by telling us his truth through the mind of this little boy.

He has a high level of intelligence but knows little about socializing. Also for example it is stated that he know no feelings but at the same time he is dead furious and scared of the killer. I just simply do not get it all to add up.

Despite this as I say so often it is nice reading that can be recommended.
