The Curious Incident Of The Dog In the Night-Time
The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night-Time pgs 155-160
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time has really turned out to be a good book, better than what I expected when I first started to read it. At the beginning I thought it was going to be one of those random books, that I would probably like or not like. Turns out that the book was better and keeps getting better as I read it. Christopher is a very snart boy, but do to some mental issues he lacks some abilities that a normal person are capable of doing. I could imagine it if he didn't have mental issues, he would probably be a very smart person.
I think The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, by Mark Haddon is interesting because now Christopher has to go to London and make it without getting caught by the policeman and bring him backt to Father. Unfortunately it seems as though the policeman will take him back tot he station and back to his father who lied to him and I don't think it would be fair.
A passage from page 157 that seems important is: "And if you go off on a spaceship and you travel near the speed of light, you may come back and find that all your famile is dead and you are still young and it will be the future but your clock will say that you have only been away for a few days or months." I think this is awesome because I would like to travel at the speed of light for like 6 years and then come back to Earth and be 21, which I wouldn't mind cause it was only 6 years I left.
Another part that I liked was: "There were lots of people on the train, and I didn't like that, because I don't like lots of people I don't know and I hate it even more if I am stuck in a room with lots of people I don;t know, and a train is like a room and you can't get out of it when it's moving." This is an example of something important in this book. It shows that Christopher is a very special person when it comes to thing like this. I feel that Christopher was a little like me because I use to hate being in a room with people I didn't know, but that was just because I was a shy person I guess.
This section of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I was like about 5 years old in Ecuador and I got lost with my brother and it was scary and we were running to my grandmother's house and it was night-time.
What's probably going to happen next is that maybe the policeman will take him back to the station and his father will take him back home and probably hit Christopher for doing such a thing.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book because I want to know what will happens next to Christopher and how will his journey to London will be or what will happen. =)
