February 2004

Suggested By: Paul

Rating: 7.0 out of 10


Summary: Our unwritten 'no hardbacks' Reading Group rule was broken with this sleeper hit by local author Mark Haddon. Narrated by an autistic child who discovers his neighbour's dog dead, the book concerns his quest to find out whodunnit which leads him to the heart of a startling lie within his own family. The book was generally loved in varying quantities of affection by the group - though none of us could live with the narrator.
