What is Curious Incident about?
Christopher Boone is fifteen years old and at precisely seven minutes past midnight is standing over his neighbour, Mrs Shear’s dead dog. The dog has been speared with a garden fork and no one but Christopher is in sight, so it comes as no surprise that he is held under a suspicious light. However, he knows he’s not the culprit that murdered Wellington and takes it upon himself to find out who did. Despite his dad banning him from his detective work, Christopher makes a note of all the facts and is intent on solving the mystery. Forbidden to investigate, he has no choice but to take this road alone despite never having been to the end of his road alone.
