Recently I read pages 60-77 in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon, and I didn't like this section because it talked to much about being smart and all that. Sometimes I think that this book makes me feel stupid in a way because he is too smart.
One line from this part of the book that stands out for me is: "But I don't feel sad about it. Because Mother is dead. And because Mr.Shears isn't around anymore. So I would be feeling sad about something that isn't real and doesn't exist. An that would be stupid."I think this is logical because sometimes people tend to be sad about something from the past. When things are left in the past they should be left there, in the past.
This section of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time reminds me of another story. In "In the Woods" because in this story there is a boy is really smart. He had some one hwo died and he wasn't upset because he wanted to be strong.
What's probably going to happen next is that he's going to start investigating more and more about the incident of the dog.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book because I think that it's a good book and that it can get better.
