The Curious Incident Dog In The Night Time

Are you interested in Maths and Science, and like precision? Or mystery novels? Or perhaps psychology? Or even enjoy some graphics? TheCurious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time (written by Mark Haddon) is the right book for you. The book evokes the tale of a young boy, Christopher John Francis Boone, who attempts to solve the mystery of the murderer of his neighbour’s dog. However, the truth about his family is also unravelled, as he discovers a whole new hidden world behind him.
This amazing tale portrays the development and decision making processes of a boy who is highly logical, precise and orderly. Christopher will introduce you to a whole knew perception of the world, using meticulous, analytical and descriptive language that is more honest and inarguable than any other story you will come across. You may also learn a few knew things from this bright mathematician, such as prime numbers past 200 or how to solve an A-level maths problem.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time may be a difficult read at first, as Haddon writes the story from Christopher’s voice. The vocabulary is simplistic with repetition of several words. However, the story is still a definite “must-read,” this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to connect and empathise with a uniquely intelligent protagonist such as Christopher.

The book was also the winner of the 2004 Boeke Prize and the 2003 Whitbread Book of the Year.

Maximum Ride

Maximum Ride is a series written by James Patterson. It is about a young girl named Max and her friends/family on a mission to save the world. One of the reasons that make this book exciting is that both Max and the rest of her gang are half human half bird.

This is a good read because there lots of action and a good sense of humour even for people a bit older the writing is altogether is amazing even though the book are meet for a younger crowed a more mature reader can enjoy this quite well.


Even though this series is very different from most of the books James Patterson normally writes this is still a very well thought out story line is has a good sense world ending danger but as well dealing with teenage problems seen though there eyes.

All up this series is well written fast-paced and fascinating altogether a good read.
