"I stood there and I opened my Swiss Army knife in my pocket..."
I can't put The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time down. This book has a really deep meaning to it, and it's like a journey when you follow through it. I like the suspension of the book because it keeps me entertained and I like the way the book expresses itself in different ways.
I think The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, by Mark Haddon is awesome because as I read I learn more and more about Christopher and that's cool. I want to get to know him better so that I can feel what he feels during the book.
A passage from pages 170 that seems important is: "And I stood there and I opened my Swiss Army knife in my pocket to make me feel safe and I held on to it tight" I think this is interesting because this shows how comfortable Christopher feels being there by himself with strangers. I would feel the same except that I wouldn't go too crazy about it.
Another part that I liked was: "And the escalators was a staircase but it was moving and people stepped onto it and it carried them down and up and it made me laugh because I hadn't been on one before and it was like something in a science fiction film about the future." This is an example of something important in this book. It shows that Christopher needs to experience the world a little more and see the new things that have been made.
This section of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time reminds me of a song. In "The Adventure" by Angels And Airwaves, I think that the title really matches what Christopher is going through because it shows that this adventure is something that he hasn't experienced and is new to him.
What's probably going to happen next is that Christopher will go see his mother.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book because I want to see Christopher see his mother for the first time in a long time. =)
