Christopher is brave in The Curious Incident of the dog in the Night-Time
The Curious Incident of the Dog in The Night-Time by Mark Haddon is awesome right now (pages 30 - 40). My prediction about the book was correct which means that he did do more on about his dectective work on the murder of Wellington. I think that it's a really dangerous, but very brave thing to find out who really killed Wellington.
One line from this part of the book that stands out for me is: "So I decide for myself what I am going to do and what I am not going to do." I don't think this is very nice because I think that some people have a certain authority over us and I guess that most of the time we have to listen to it and respect it and he's acting like he has no authority. Of course I would understand if he wouldn't like to have an authority, but unfortunately life is full of rules and if we don't follow it, we get in major trouble.
Another line that I thought was attention-grabbing was: "But Mother was cremated." I think that being cremated is not as bad as people think it is. I would love to get cremated once I die and I would like the ashes to be placed in a bottle and given to my family members like my offsprings and my wife.
This section of The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time reminds me of something I saw in Youth Voices. It reminds me of Walter's post about ghosts because that also has to deal with mystery and stuff like that. I like mysteries and I feel like thay are fun to solve all the time.
What's probably going to happen next is Christopher is finally going to get a clue and get closer to the killer and what has happened to Wellington. I think that Siobhan is gonna go with him on one of his detective works and help him find more information on the dog.
I am looking forward to reading to reading the rest of this book because I want to know who was the killer of Wellington and I want to know how Christopher finds out who killed the dog. I can't wait, but since it's the beginning of the book, I have to read on to find all of this out. =)
