I walked onto her lawn and knelt beside the dog. I put my hand on the muzzle of the dog. It was still warm.
The dog was called Wellington. It belonged to Mrs Shears who was our friend. She lived on the opposite side of the road, two houses to the left. Wellington was a poodle. Not one of the small poodles that have hairstyles but a big poodle. It had curly black fur, but when you got close you could see that the skin underneath the fur was a very pale yellow, like chicken.
I stroked Wellington and wondered who had killed him, and why. I know all the countries of the world and their capital cities and every prime number up to 7, Eight years ago, when I first met Siobhan, she showed me this picture and I knew that it meant 'sad,' which is what I felt when I found the dead dog.
Then she showed me this picture and I knew that it meant 'happy', like when I'm reading about the Apollo space missions, or when I am still awake at 3 am or 4 am in the morning and I can walk up and down the street and pretend that I am the only person in the whole world.
Then she drew some other pictures but I was unable to say what these meant. I got Siobhan to draw lots of these faces and then write down next to them exactly what they meant. I kept the piece the piece of paper in my pocket and took it out when I didn't understand what someone was saying. But it was very difficult to decide which of the diagrams was most like the face they were making because people's faces move very quickly.
When I told Siobhan that I was doing this, she got out a pencil and another piece of paper and said it probably made people feel very and then she laughed. So I tore the original piece of paper up and threw it away.
And Siobhan apologised. And now if I don't know what someone is saying I ask them what they mean or I walk away.
Rating details. Our customer reviews My lecturer mentioned this book to me - at first it was a bit difficult to get past the stream-of-consciousness type of narration, but once I got used to it it appeal to my greatly. This is a very unique story and one of the best books I've ever read.
I highly recommended. This book is totally different. It is narrated by 15 year old Christopher who has Asperger's syndrome and when a neighbours dog is murdered he starts investigating and narrowing down the culprits. Read my full review at http: I found this book really hard to get into and actually gave up at about 60 pages to the ending, and giving up on a book is very hard for me to do.
However, it wasn't the usual style of book that I would usually go for. I'm more of a Marian Keys fan, but decided to give the book a go after hearing so many people raving about it after reading the book. But I have to say that the Autistic focus is brilliant and you really do get a good perspective from someone who suffers with Autisim.
If you think that this book is just about the life of an autistic boy, you'd be right. But don't think its easy, Christopher Boone has one of the most awkward lives on the planet.
Even though he cannot fathom feelings and emotions, he knows every prime number up to 7, and he knows how to solve even the most difficult maths questions in the world. Read this book, it will give you a new view of the world of autism. Book ratings by Goodreads. Goodreads is the world's largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews.
