Christopher Boone is the narrator of the story and he’s a fifteen year old boy with autism. It’s a simple, interesting little story that gives you a completely amazing insight into the mind of an autistic person. I was very impressed.
Christopher is so smart, it’s actually quite humbling. Obviously, his downfall is dealing with people - he can’t bear to be touched and often tries to shut the world out. He’s a fantastic character, noticing everything around him, so the book is very detailed. I like that the chapters are numbered by prime number order.
