Fallan Stark
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time
pg. 137

My book is told in first person. The main character is Christopher Boone. He attends a certain kind of a school for people similar like him. He thinks very logical and doesn't understand social norms or how to read emotions or facial expressions. He thinks in such a straight forward way, where its all facts, no inferring. It makes it kind of hard to get into the book because he thinks so differntly than I do. I don't really enjoy the book because of his tone is harder to understand. He also just rambles on about math facts or reasoning. Because it is in first person, it effects the plot because it reveals only his thoughts and how he sees the world. The tone is fairly serious, because that's just how he thinks.


  1. Would you like the book better if it was still about him but in third person? Would it even be possible for it to be in third person?

  2. I think the point of view really helps the reader understand an autistic person's thinking much better. A third person point of view would be too similar to most people's perspective if they were observing the action; the idea is to "experience" an autistic person's way of thinking.
