“I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them”
#blurb: Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he hates the color yellow. The improbable story of Christopher’s quest as he investigates the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual, and widely heralded novels in recent years.

My Review: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5
Christopher Boone is a fifteen year old boy who lives with his father. His mother passed away when he was young. He has Asperger’s syndrome and so he is not able to communicate well with other people and has difficulty in understanding the feelings of people hidden underneath their words. He has a pet rat and his best friend is Siobhan. One night he discovers that his neighbour’s dog has been killed with a garden fork and thus he embarks on his journey to find the murderer. In the process of his detective works he comes across various secrets which turn his life upside down. What secrets does Christopher discover? If you want to know find then pick up the book next time you see it.
The book is brilliantly written and keeps you hooked till the end. The writing style is marvelous and Christopher is a type of narrator for whom you can’t feel anything but love. He is adorable in his own quirky ways and never lies. If you love Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory you will definitely love Christopher. At times you will feel sorry for him but at the very next moment you will be amazed by his brilliant mind. He has an eidetic memory and solves higher level math problems without any difficulty. I loved reading this book and I bet you will too. So don’t forget to give this one a read.
