Intro to Lit Study--EL 150
Haddon, Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-TIme
When I read this in the summer, I read this mostly for fun. But now that I am reading this for a class, I see this book in a different light. Chistopher is seen a boy with little emotions, which maybe due to his autism. Nevertheless, when he found the letter that his mother wrote after her "death" he didn't know what to do. When she people with mental disorders as people that is beyond our help and understanding. Yet it is Christopher who is totally a mathmatical genius and one hell of a detective . So what should Christopher do? He is the only one that can solve the problem about the death of Wellington, yet he is emotionally detached from the rest of the world.
In the confusing game of life and death should we:
Learn as much as we can about our cultures and anything else we need to know (Since we are told that education is everything)?
Care about what is going on in the world and stop taking everything face value?
