..by Mark Haddon. This was in the booker long list this year, but never made it further (don't stop reading yet) It is a detective story with a difference. In the sense that it is told from the perspective of an autistic 15 year old boy. I swear this is one of the funniest (and most bizarre) books I have read. The way haddon has captured the logic of an autistic child is brilliant. Even if it is likely to be slightly innacurate. If you haven't read it. Do so now. It's a fairly easy read, but well worth the time if you want a laugh.
